Following on from our epic dissection of the paths Marvel have ahead of them following the success of The Avengers, the folks over at CHUD have sat down to chat with Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige on the road to The Avengers sequel. We imagine it is inevitable, but Feige chooses his words carefully:
If we do an Avengers 2 it will be after [Iron Man 3, Thor 2, Captain America 2]. They have to grow, they have to change. What they’ve gone through in this movie will impact their state of mind and where they stand in their next movies. Then whatever they go through in those movies is going to affect where we meet them in the next Avengers film. But I think people will be surprised to see, as we go forward – particularly in Iron Man 3 – the notion of how singular the stories can become. Iron Man 3 is a very singular Tony Stark story. As is Thor 2. Cap, who is stuck in the modern day with no friends or family, there will be some revelations of who is still alive from his days in WWII, but SHIELD and Nick Fury are kind of his confidants right now. So of all these movies, Captain America 2 will be most closely associated with Avengers.
He also talks about a sequel to The Incredible Hulk not on the cards at the moment, but their deal with Mark Ruffalo (allegedly a six picture deal) would allow this.
