Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige Talks about Building to THE AVENGERS 2

In order to build a film like The Avengers, Marvel had to look far in advance and make sure that their major superhero films contributed to the upcoming blockbuster crossover.  Even if The Avengers is a massive flop (and that’s highly unlikely), Marvel is already making its plans for The Avengers 2.  Speaking at New York Comic-Con this weekend, Marvel Studios’ President of Production Kevin Feige talked about the company’s future films.  Unsurprisingly, Iron Man 3 will be part of what Feige calls “Phase Two of this Avengers Assemble talk.”

So what else will be part of “Phase Two”?  Hit the jump for more.  The Avengers opens in 3D on May 4, 2012.  Feige says they’ll be continuing their tradition of including a brief scene post-credits [via Cinemablend].

There’s no set date for The Avengers 2, but it will be coming after Iron Man 3 (May 3, 2013) as well as Thor 2 (November 15, 2013).  However, that still leaves Captain America 2 on the table as well as the planned spin-offs for Black Widow, Hawkeye, and possibly S.H.I.E.L.D.  Then throw on to the pile Marvel’s next non-sequel, non-spinoff films: Ant-Man, The Inhumans, and Guardians of the GalaxyAnt-Man seems like an easy fit for The Avengers 2 since it’s just one more character and sequels always demand fresh blood.  However, The Inhumans and Guardians of the Galaxy are teams and Feige has said that if those two movies make it all the way to the finish line, they’re going to be a team-movie like The Avengers or X-Men.

So does Phase Two mean bringing in The Inhumans and/or Guardians of the Galaxy, and if so, to what extent?  There’s a limit to a cast size before all the characters and the story gets short-changed.  It will be interesting to see if all of Marvel’s future projects are pieces of an Avengers puzzle, or if the company will make films that don’t have to live in The Avengers universe (or at least play a major part in an Avengers movie).
