After “Captain America”, Paramount says ttfn to the Marvel Studios range. Starting with 2012’s “The Avengers”, Disney will be distributing the shingle’s releases. So where to after the aforementioned, Joss Whedon’s big-budget superhero tag-team movie, for Disney/Marvel? More sequels? You betcha ass!
With “Thor” likely to kick some butt internationally this weekend and then domestically in a couple of weeks (read my review here), and “Captain America” garnering even better buzz than the latter, one thing’s for sure there’s still quite a bit of steam left in the ol’ Marvel loco.
Marvel’s Kevin Feige tells IGN that Tony Stark will get a third solo jaunt following his involvement with “The Avengers”.
“X-Men was the dawn of the new Marvel cinematic age. ‘Iron Man’ was the dawn of the Marvel Studios age and the establishment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the beginning of that continuity. The Avengers is the next big step. Once all these characters come together, it’s the culmination of all that has come before. It launches a new era and a new time in the history of our films. Not only will it be the first film that our new home studio, Disney, will be distributing, but it will also renew each of these characters and launch them into their own franchises, starting with the second film to be released by Disney, Iron Man 3.”
Following that, says Feige, will be sequels to 2011’s “Thor” and “Captain America : The First Avenger”.
“[After The Avengers] Thor will go off into a new adventure, and Captain America will continue to explore the modern world in another film of his own. We hope that holds true for the characters appearing in that film — Black Widow, Hawkeye, and the spy organization, S.H.I.E.L.D. —all of whom are more than worthy and capable of carrying their own films. And, we’ve got a lot of other characters we’re prepping and getting ready for film debuts: the world of martial arts, these great cosmic space fantasies, Dr. Strange, and the magic side of the Marvel Universe. There are many, many stories to be mined.”
Definitely no shortage of tales to tell, but what do you think guys, does a character like Hawkeye or Black Widow warrant their own solo flick?
