Just three months before the official start of Marvel’s ‘Phase Two’ of their cinematic universe and plans have already been announced for ‘Phase Three’.
Marvel president of production Kevin Feige has told MTV that Ant-Man will officially launch the new phase and that there are early plans for the long-rumored Doctor Strange to be included.
“‘Ant-Man’ is definitely part of Phase Three,” Feige said. “Like ‘Iron Man 3,’ it’s certainly set in the Marvel Universe, but it’s also through the lens of Edgar Wright — which is the only reason we’re making the movie… It’s very much an ‘Ant-Man’ origin movie from the perspective of Edgar Wright and his co-writer Joe Cornish. It will of course be firmly planted in the MCU, but a different corner than we’ve seen before.”
As for Dr Strange, he added:”‘Doctor Strange,’ which I’ve been talking about for years, is definitely one of them. He’s a great, original character, and he checks the box off this criteria that I have: he’s totally different from anything else we have, just like ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’ He’s totally different from anything we’ve done before, as is ‘Ant-Man,’ which keeps us excited.”
