The finale to the announcement included the appearance of Robert Downey Jr (Ironman) and Chris Evans (Capt. America) who introduced the new character – Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman).
Q&A with Kevin Feige, after the announcement was very informative and full of exciting news. Mr. Feige shared that this announcement was scheduled for Comic Con but they were not ready and finally decided a special event was the way to go. Mr. Feige was asked about confirmation for casting for the various characters, specifically Dr. Strange. Mr. Feige said if they had they would have announced it today, but shared the announcement could come at any time, but would happen before the release of the movie. Asked about other characters having solo appearances, Mr. Feige shared we will be meeting many in the various movies. In regards to the Guardian’s series, there are many possibilities for the characters. Mr. Feige said he loves the rumors that will start to fly with this announcement about who will be cast for Capt. Marvel but shared the producer and director announcements would come out soon. . Asked about the Russo brothers and how in an earlier interview, they did not share much, and Mr. Feige said it is very hard but the Russo brothers do a great job in keeping everyone informed but at the same time it’s difficult to stay on task with releasing information. As for a stand alone Incredible Hulk film for now is not on the table but there is always hope. Rumors about other projects for Phase 4 and the upcoming characters, who will be in what movie or the plot will have to stay as rumors for now. Questioned about confirmation that the Russo brothers would direct 2 part Avengers Movie to which Mr. Feige responded that “anything that was not specifically or obviously revealed today is either not true at all or rumor”. In terms of the Civil War series, the movie is based on what happens next. The basis is the same, “something happens that is cumulative of all the other movies to date which makes the government question who reports to who”. “As of now there is no World Security Counsel or SHIELD, Stark is paying for it and Capt. America is running it and things occur that make the government question things”.
With the release of 2 movies for 2016 and 2017, 3 for 2018 and 2019 and 1 already set for 2019, Marvel fans have several years of incredible movies coming our way. I can’t wait for all the media events coming our way.
