Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Three is set to kick off with Captain America: Civil War in May 2016 and President of Marvel Studios provides a update on Phase Three films.
Speaking with Empire, he starts off with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2:
He assures that there will be new additions to the roaster: “There’ve been many different incarnations of the Guardians over the years in the comics and we’ll catch a glimpse of additions over the course of the movie.”
He says we shouldn’t expect Thanos in GOTG sequel, “I wouldn’t look too hard in that movie for Thanos.
The next time we see Thanos he will not be messing around. It will be, ‘Oh, that’s why they’ve been teasing this villain for five years!”
Feige then moves on to the upcoming Spider-Man reboot, he explains: “Smaller scale is all relative. It’s going to be as big and spectacular a Spider-Man film as has ever been made.
But it’s a Peter Parker story and has more opportunity to be focused on the story of a 15-year-old kid going to high school.”
Moving on to Thor: Ragnarok, he says fans shouldn’t assume that the film will be a literal adaptation of Norse apocalyptic, “I don’t think people will read into that title alone [regarding] what the movie’s going to be.
It’s going to be, perhaps, as totally different from the two prior Thor movies as Winter Soldier was from the first Captain America. We want to take it to new places, we’ve got new characters that will show how big we’re swinging on this. And we have a Hulk.
The film takes place within cosmos primarily which is to say, frankly, very little Earth.”
And finally he talks about Black Panther: “It’s a big geo-political action adventure that focuses on the family and royal struggle of T’Challa in Wakanda, and what it means to be a king.
T’Challa’s story is very important to us as it links to the next Avengers films, which is why we brought it forward,” Feige concluded.
