Marvel’s Kevin Feige on ‘Doctor Strange’ 3D, ‘Captain Marvel’ Director, and More
This past weekend at Comic-Con 2016, Marvel Studios took the Hall H stage and did what they always do: own the room. The crowd went wild as Marvel unveiled the first footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming and Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, announced the star of Captain Marvel, and showed off new footage from Doctor Strange.
Shortly after the panel ended, Collider’s own Steven Weintraub caught up with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige backstage and spoke at length about a litany of upcoming projects. Feige discussed how 3D has been such an essential part of Doctor Strange that they’re now struggling with making sure the visuals work in 2D, and he also gave a rundown of Marvel’s slate as it stands now, including filming dates for Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War and when we can expect to hear who’s directing Captain Marvel (hint: by the end of the summer). Additionally, Feige discussed the prospect of Spider-Man: Homecoming sequels following the mold of Harry Potter and talked about the decision to use Baby Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2.
You can read what Feige had to say about the 3D in Doctor Strange below, and watch the full video interview above.
“There are sequences of the film that 3D is actually necessary to tell the dimensional story that is happening through visuals, and we’re now finding ourselves in VFX reviews going, ‘Okay we know this is perfect for 3D, this is built for 3D, but the story’s gotta work in 2D so how do we adjust it so it still works in 2D?’”
