When you have an opportunity to sit down with Kevin Feige – the President of Production of Marvel Studios – you listen up because he’s the one with the most important news about Marvel’s upcoming films. So during this afternoon’s roundtable interview at Comic-Con for “Iron Man 2″, we listened up. When it was my turn to ask a question, I went for what many of us have been wondering: which Marvel superheroes will be in the upcoming “Avengers” movie?! You know you want to find out so hit the jump:
The quick info is it’s going to be Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and Nick Fury for sure. He also says Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). Since I don’t want to put words in his mouth, here’s exactly what he said after I asked him who would be in the Avengers movie?
Kevin: I think we know. It’s going to be Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Nick Fury. I think it’s safe to assume that there will be some members of the Hulk universe in the film as well. In terms of the additional, I think Black Widow for sure. SHIELD’s organization for sure. And, again, what’s exciting to me about the Avengers movie are seeing those four characters together and interact with each other. Anywhere from the first issue of the Avengers to Civil War, the dynamic between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark is awesome and fascinating. It brings out sides of the others that won’t be brought out in their own franchises. Throwing Thor into the mix is a whole other thing and I think that will be cool. So to pile in another ten or fifteen…or frankly even four…I think will be too many.
Is the Hulk in it?
Kevin: You know Zack Penn is outlining it as we speak so we’ll see.
Since the “Avengers” movie is still being written, things do change. But I think it’s very safe to assume it’s not going to change too much. Much more from Comic-Con soon.
