Head Of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige Discusses 'Avengers: Infinity War' And Beyond

Kevin Feige, you may have heard of him, if you haven't well let me tell you who he is. Feige is the Head of Marvel Studios, the Disney-bought studio that brought us such films like Avengers, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, and many others. Feige was recently interviews by Steven Weintraub of Collider. A few key things were discussed of course, many about Avengers: Infinity War and its follow up an untitled Avengers sequel.

On the topic of whether we'll see Phil Coulson appear again film side Feige simply replied with, "maybe." Many Marvel Cinematic Universe fans will note that Phil died in the first Avengers film and went to the TV side.

Feige was coy when the conversation moved on to whether Tom Holland's Spider-Man would appear in Infinity War. Feige noted that they are still figuring out things in regards to the character given the Sony-Marvel deal they made. "We're figuring it out. I mean, it was really the specifics for Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming. Spider-Man: Homecoming just wrapped as you know and we’re just getting into cutting that movie, so that’s the primary focus but we are…that iceberg is thawed and is non existent. So we talk to them all the time about what could be fun for the future." But Feige left up to people's speculation on whether Holland would make an appearance. "It is I would say that is part of the surprise. I don’t want to spoil anything one way or another." Feige followed up with, "there are a lot of people in it."

The Infinity War film along with its follow-up will shoot from January through to October/November next year, with a mind-set that they'll treat this film and the next separately but may shoot both on one day. It will introduce some new faces but the main focus being connecting the pre-existing characters.

On the topic of characters Feige was asked about bringing in some of the Marvel Television characters. "I think it’s extremely impressive what Netflix has done and it will be the same answer I always give, which is, 'It all depends on timing.'" Feige admitted. "It all depends on how to do it because I don’t think what anybody wants to do is have such important characters show up for one second. Black Panther and Spider-Man to me are the high bar in Civil War of how you can bring in new characters into something. Vision and Ultron, Wanda and Pietro in Ultron. And it takes a lot of screentime, and it takes a lot of work. Infinity War has a lot of people in it already. So it just depends on how we could figure it out."

Looking towards the future of Marvel Studios, there are untitled films in 2019 and 2020, many are wondering what they could be but it seems as though some of them could be in a state of flux and not set in stone as of now. "It’s a combination," Feige explained on whether some of the films are definite or still working out. "We know what we’d like them to be for 2020. Over the years, where we’re aiming we’ve been lucky enough that it’s usually been the same thing but we always leave ourselves the opportunity to bob and weave and adapt if we have to. But we know where we’re headed for 2020 and we have ideas and were beginning to solidify the years beyond that."
