With Ant-man practically on our doorstep now, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has been talking about why we should pay close attention to Marvel’s smallest hero and how he’ll affect the whole MCU for years to come.
“The truth is, there is so much in Ant-Man: introducing a new hero, introducing a very important part of technology in the Marvel universe, the Pym particles. Ant-Man getting on the Avengers’ radar in this film and even – this is the weirdest part, you shouldn’t really talk about it because it won’t be apparent for years – but the whole notion of the quantum realm and the whole notion of going to places that are so out there, they are almost mind-bendingly hard to fathom. It all plays into Phase Three,” Say Feige.
But what does that mean? Well we’re thinking the Quantum Realm means there’s other dimensions out there – could we see this in Doctor Strange? Or perhaps he’s talking about getting out into the universe with the Guardians? Does it tie in to Captain Marvel? Or The Inhumans? Well, it seems there’s a big universe out there and we’ve seen but a corner of it.
Interestingly, he also talked about something that is on all our minds somewhat… what happens when it’s time to recast? Well, he doesn’t seem too bothered about it at the minute: “Thankfully, I’m not going to be faced with that decision for many, many years because we have everybody locked up and planned out for as far as any studio has movies planned. But one day, it will be a combination. It will be a combination of choosing which characters to continue on with and explore and which to bring in, as we’re doing with Captain Marvel and Black Panther. And certainly to recast in some way or another – as we’ve already done in certain cases. Certainly many other franchises have reached that milestone before we have and done that with great success.”
So, everyone is tied up, huh? It seems possible that Marvel have more secrets that haven’t been revealed… and that’s as it should be.
