K-FEI DELIVERS INTERVIEWS

THAT MEANS IT'S TIME TO POST
http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplayli...n_solo_films/#

One interesting thing here:
Quote:
We even asked about Captain America’s “Invaders” group that appears in his WWII storyline, but Feige said it doesn’t sound like there’s much of a plan there at all despite a small pocket of fans who would love to see that era revisited. “We sort of [pause], touch-upon them in ‘Captain America,’ he said somewhat gingerly, “So right now, there’s nothing yet. We’ll see how Cap does,” he smiled.
It's possible there's some kind of Namor reference in Captain America, maybe a reference to the Human Torch. It could be (probably is) something as slight as those blips on the map in Iron Man 2. Having the Invaders in a Cap sequel would be extremely radical.

Quote:
Feige says the company also wants to be careful not to overuse its existing franchises as launching pads for other properties with less public awareness. “The whole idea of the cinematic universe is another tool for storytelling that you have to use wisely,” he says. “I would start to be turned off to the whole idea if it ever started to feel like a gimmick. Like Tony Stark saying 'Oh, Pepper, I've hurt my leg – let me go see this doctor. Oh hello, Dr. Strange.' I don't think that there will be a lot of cause of that kind of thing. But there are opportunities, like Hawkeye in 'Thor' and Black Widow in 'Iron Man,' if it serves the story anyway, to have a nod in there. I do see 'The Avengers' franchise as something in which other Avenger characters might make their first appearance in an 'Avengers' movie. Then maybe if audiences respond to them they could spinout into their own movies.”
Avengers movies are a really natural place to toss in new characters. I do think that, after Avengers, people will finally "get" the shared universe thing and understand why SHIELD agents and etc. keep showing up in all these movies. I doubt they'll ever see a response as whiny and confused as the one they got to Iron Man 2.

Quote:
With any number of Marvel characters in various stages of development (“Ant-Man” is close to a go with director Edgar Wright), which slightly off-kilter comic book hero does Feige personally hope the company can make work? “The next one is Dr. Strange,” he reveals. “I'd like to tap into two things: tap more into the world of magic – which 'Thor' isn’t, really, but Strange entirely is, and I like that a lot; and then also continue to explore this sort of cosmic side of our universe, which Thor is a big part of, but not the only part. So those two things, in addition to the solid foundation of what's happening on Earth, I think, could be great.”
That he's this candid about Strange probably means they're feeling pretty OK about the script.

They never said it's shooting next year. The last word on Runaways is that it's postponed "indefinitely."

I wonder who they have in mind to introduce in Avengers that we don't know of yet. The Pyms, T'Challa, Strange?

A pre-requisite here is probably that they've already signed the director for the film and involved them in the casting process. Only Ant-Man has a director right now. It's possible that they could work with Edgar Wright and introduce Ant-Dude in Avengers. They could do the same for any of the other characters, if they made the deals and found spots for these appearances (though the movie sounds pretty stuffed as it is.)

What if these signings are in the works or underwraps as we speak. This movie has only started filming and has a ways to go. That's plenty of time for things to happen. Also these roles are definitely small ones but maybe enough to make an impression.

If nothing else, they can throw damn near anything they want to in as a "credit cookie."

They also could do the Ant-Man scenes when they do reshoots, so Edgar would have time to cast Ant-Man even without them filming Pym scenes now.

I always liked the original human-torch but i doubt we'll ever see him in a film.

Oh, dang, the main girl in Runaways was a witch, right? There's no way they're casually introducing magic to the MCU through one of a half dozen characters in this teen ensemble thing. They're probably still planning on doing it, but not 'till after the Dr. Strange movie at the earliest.

Interview with Agent Phil Coulson. No new information. Required reading.


Edit: ...a terrifying suggestion from the comments:

what if at the end of avengers after they fight like hydra or whatever, after the credits, coulson looks into the mirror, then becomes a skrull.

Just a few months ago (after the Runways delay), Feige was doing a Q&A with Collider, and one of his responses was that The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Ant-Man, and Runaways were all on slate for after Thor and Cap.

After AVENGERS we know you’re looking at IRON MAN 3, THE RUNAWAYS and possibly Edgar Wright’s ANT-MAN. Anything else you care to share?

KevinFeige: FilmbuffRich, Those 4 films are gonna take up the next three years of my life!
Runaways is also much further along in production than any other post-Avengers movie. It has a finished script, a director, and casting has been underway for a long time now. I'd be surprised if they delayed it any further than a 2013 release.

I'm aware, but Runaways is one of those projects that has to exist in a world densely populated by superhero characters and concepts. In the core lineup of characters from the first volume, you've got a wizard, an alien, a mutant (who's a telepath,) time travel, and a genetically engineered dinosaur. From the way Marvel's talking and proceeding, I think they'd want to spend an entire film easing the audience into any one (or two) of these concepts. They could re-write the dinosaur girl so she just has a genetically engineered dinosaur, instead of a genetically engineered dinosaur from the future. The mutant telepath is obviously not going to be a mutant in the film. They're already introducing aliens in Thor and The Avengers, so that one's possibly OK. The witch is the definite dealbreaker, but you introduce magic in Dr. Strange and you can do it.

Even after dealing with individual character problems, I still find it problematic that the kids are meant to be the children of a supervillain team, and the idea is treated as if you're casually familiar and comfortable with the idea of superhero and supervillain teams existing everywhere in America. There has been no supervillain "team" in any of these Marvel movies yet. I don't mean a giant organization like Hydra, I mean a "team" in the classic, comic book-y sense: a heterogeneous bunch of characters (who have probably been established in previous stories) thrown together somewhat arbitrarily in an attempt to generate a new story from old ideas. Think the Sinister Six, Frightful Four, or the Masters of Evil.
In Marvel comics, built on decades of these stories, I can buy that the world of supervillainy is so vast that a group like "the Pride" is one of about a zillion that the good guys are trying to deal with on any given day. In the "MCU" that's currently established, the teamup of the Pride would represent such a novel and singular threat that I think you'd realistically expect one call to SHIELD to result in agents with Stark tech busting their doors down and carting them off to superjail.

If Namor is back with Marvel Studios, my fingers are firmly crossed for a Defenders movie.

The Pride were very super-secretive about their activities, though. Very few had ever really heard of them before, except for some other criminal organizations - iirc Kingpin mentioned them, and how well they ran things in LA.

I think, anyway. I haven't read those books in awhile.

Still, it wouldn't be that much of a stretch to play up the shadowy, Illuminati-like feel of the group, especially if you focused more on their criminal side and slightly less on the costumed supervillainy aspect.

Thor was terrible. I was bored for the first 20-something minutes of the movie. Only after Thor is cast down to Earth does it start to get anywhere close to interesting. There weren't a lot of action sequences, and none of them lasted long. For being the God of Thunder, you'd expect him to have cool fighting combos, but he pretty much just threw his hammer around like a boomerang. Aside from that, he (Thor) was the only interesting character. There's nothing special about Odin or Loki, and Natalie Portman's character was dull, as well as the other supporting characters being pointless.

3/10

^Hahaha I have to say I can't take this post seriously at all. Firstly, for claiming the movie is boring for the first twenty minutes, where a lot of the biggest action and spectacle are, hitting you right in the face. Then to claim that Odin and Loki had nothing special about them is absurd to me. And supporting characters pointless? How was Thor supposed to find out about Odin being alive? What was the government gonna do about the immovable cosmic hammer? Let it be? And finally, I know a bizzare guy named Grayson and read the whole thing with his quirky voice in my head.

Action sequences aren't inherently interesting.

Both were unremarkable performances.

I didn't care for any of them. Natalie Portman's character especially was severely underdeveloped.


It was a bad movie, overall.

I'd definitely prefer for him to be in it, but as it stands, we could still have a Doctor Strange/Hulk/Namor combo, with support from Nighthawk, Hellcat and Valkyrie.
