Peter Cuneo revealed this the other day during an analyst conference call at Bear Sterns. Marvel will be releasing 2 Marvel Studios films per year from 2008 forward.

2008: Iron Man & Hulk
2009: Captain American & Avengers or Ant-Man

I say do Ant-Man first and then do a big Avengers flick in 2010.

A Captain America and Avengers movie the same year? That's ******ed.

It's too soon for the Avengers. That's playing your ace card way too early.

At least wait until after Iron Man 2 is realeased if not Captain America 2.
 
He said Ant-Man "OR" Avengers. I agree Avengers should wait till 2010 or maybe a year or two after that. I know Zak is doing that after Hulk.
 
If they are limited to 2 movies a year the schedule should look like this:

2008 - Iron Man, TIH

2009 - Captain America, Dr.Strange (screw Ant-Man)

2010 - Iron Man 2, TIH 2

2011 - Avengers, Dr. Strange 2
 
Introducing the major Avenger charecters before the Avengers movie comes out should take priority over Ant-Man. They should do Thor and Captain America before the Avengers comes out. Anticipation for these characters will nose dive after Avengers is released.

2009 - Captain America, Thor

2010 - Iron Man 2, TIH 2

2011 - Avengers , Dr.Strange

20 years later - "Ant-Man" :whatever:
 
I don't think a more than likely small production like Ant-Man should count in the two per year thing. I think it should be two MAJOR productions a year. Ant-Man is small time.
 
Ant-Man is going to a fun and interesting film mesa thinks...

CAH
 
Anyone who says that Jar Jar Binks line is just wrong, much like the man who coined the phrase!
 
^ LOL Funny but still Ant-Man will probalby be one of the most visually amazing films if done right. All those shrinking man films are great now imagine one with a superhero.

Well if that's the case then I couldn't care less if they did Ant-Man. As long as they can do Captain America AND Thor movies before the Avengers comes out.
 
Ant-Man will cost at least 80 million so it will be considered a major production.
 
^ Actually no Ant-Man is a large production. It's not small by any means except the size of the character. :) With Edgar Wright behind it...it's going to be wildly successful overseas for sure.
 
What is Ant-Man's budget?

Also, I agree that a Thor movie should come before an Avengers movie.

I think the two per year limit isn't a good idea. Maybe for the first few years the studio is in existance, but that policy will have to be altered once the studio starts making serious money.
 
Ant-Man's budget is probably in the 100 million range. That's just a guess based on statements from Cuneo and Feige in the past regarding their 7 projects of focus from their slate. The biggest a Marvel film will ever be is 180 million on the books which is = to a much bigger film from another studio. Depending on how well the Hulk film does I believe the next Hulk film will be the first to approach 180 million as might Iron Man 2 with War Machine.
 
The most money an Edgar Wright movie ever made was 30 million worldwide. :huh:
 
I can't see it being 100 mil...I highly doubt he can bank that much and shrinking movies have been done for much cheaper.
 
Really? How much has Hot Fuzz made already and it was just released? Also Edgar Wright has never made a mass market film like this with the Marvel brand name. He's also never made a big budget film before like this. Every Marvel film with a budget over 100 million has done well with The Hulk being the worse collection 250 million worldwide. It's the content. What did Raimi do before Spider-Man honestly that had made over 100 million? Evil Dead 3? Darkman? LOL What did Singers films do on average before X-Men?
 
Introducing Thor in an Avengers movie would be a huge mistake.

A Thor origin movie could make alot of money and if you wait until after the Avengers movie you lose the anticipation for a Thor movie.
 
Ant-Man has less popularity than Ghost Rider or Daredevil. DD barely crossed 100 mil (though GR is doing better than I expected). I don't think he can. He is not a character that screams major franchise. He is a character that screams maybe a smaller franchise that is still profitable.

Just because it is Marvel, it doesn't mean it has to be a 100 mil movie.

Thor could be a major franchise for Marvel, and introducing him in an Avengers movie would be a mistake I agree.

But unlike Spider-man and X-men, Ant-Man isn't incredibly popular.

Spider-men and X-men are first-tier characters. Ant-Man is 3rd-tier at best.

A character like that will be lucky to make it's budget back and that's if the movie is really good.

Exactly right :up:

It's gonna be near 100 million and popularity has nothing to do with the success of a new film franchise because they can make it popular on their own with a good marketing campaign. The difference also is Ghost Rider was a February release which is gonna pull in 220+ Million Worldwide. The character itself though toned down would never have the appeal of an ant-man film. No it's not gonna focus on wife beating so put that aside. It's gonna be a PG-13 summer release which means video game and toy support on a much bigger level than Ghost Rider.
 
I am not so shocked GR is doing this well. I would be horribly shocked if Ant-Man crossed 100 mil. Marvel has so many more safe bets than Ant-Man, it would be a mistake to do a 100 mil movie of him. A good small movie and another blockbuster (like Thor) would serve them better.
