Marvel Announces its Post ‘Avengers’ Movies

Last week, I posted our first look at ‘The Avengers’ from Entertainment Weekly. The article had some great interviews of the cast for Marvel’s epic crossover film, and really gave some insight into the insight of filming this massive film was like. But there was something even more interesting lurking in a side panel inside the article, and that was the announcement of what five of Marvel’s next films will be. Two are very expected, but the other three are quite surprising, and has gotten me really excited with where the studio is going.

According to the Entertainment Weekly article, only two of the films in the pipeline are sequels at the moment. The first of those films is ‘Iron Man 3’, which is already set for May of next year, which will once see Robert Downey, Jr., for the fourth time, dawning the Iron Man suit to save the day. The film is set to be directed by Shane Black, who wrote ‘Lethal Weapon’ and directed Robert Downey, Jr. in ‘Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang’. Nothing more is known about the film at this time. The other sequel is ‘Thor 2′, which will see Chris Hemsworth returning as the God of Thunder under the direction of Patty Jenkins. Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios’ head, has hinted that the sequel will be seen going further into the different realms that were talked about in the first film, some leading farther into space.  Which leads me to the next two films that were announced. The two that absolutely shocked me to see in development are none other than the two space based comics ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and ‘The Inhumans’. ‘The Inhumans’, which is a personal favorite of mine, is in the vein of the X-Men about a group of superbeings that were evolved from alien experiments on primitive humans, who are cast out into their own kingdom in the farthest reaches of the galaxy. There, they band together to fight for the universe. It’s a great concept, and really could be a lot of fun as a feature film. ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is about a group of warriors, each of the last of their kind, who rally together to fight for the universe. Feige says this is their chance at a space opera in the vein of Star Wars. The last film that was announced, and has been rumored for sometime, is ‘Ant-Man’, written and directed by Edgar Wright, who did ‘Shaun of the Dead’ and ‘Hot Fuzz’. Feige said that the latest draft that Wright turned in is excellent, so I’m really excited to see that one as well.


It’s interesting seeing Marvel go in science fiction, space opera direction. But at the same time, it’s great, because it means they are willing to embrace some of their comic titles in ways other companies don’t and turn them into movies that people will want to see. This is their chance to show other studios that characters like this can be done well and that audiences will react to them. ‘Thor’ was a stepping stone in that direction for the company, and now it seems their moving forward to embrace some of their more cosmic titles. Something I couldn’t be happier about. This is honestly the best time to be a Marvel comics fan, and I’m glad to say that I’m a part of it to see these characters come to life like never before.
