Marvel President Kevin Feige is a walking headline. The man is constantly being asked questions about the Marvel cinematic universe, and that’s because we all want to know what is coming next. There are so many Marvel characters to choose from and we all have our favorites. The way Marvel is intertwining their Cinematic Universe is something that has never been done before.
During a recent Q&A session with website Best Movie Feige talked about Guardians of the Galaxy and a little bit about Dr. Strange and Marvel’s Phase 3. He went on to say that Guardians will be a sure fire hit with fans:
“It was long time that we wanted to bring in a movie an adventure set entirely in space. We immediately liked the idea of making a movie based on a comic mostly unknown by people and that present various superheroes in one movie. Although it’s set up from another part of the universe, a human will be in a superhero role of Peter Quill, played by Chris Pratt. There will be lots of characters: from a sexy warrior to an animated tree, and a raccoon with a gun. It’s an unique franchise and we are pleased that it’s so different from what we have done so far.”
Feige was asked if Phase 3 will consist only of new superheroes:
“Currently the third phase is still developing. The 99.9% of our time is used for Phase 2, the development of The Avengers 2 and the Guardians of the Galaxy keeps us very busy. Definitely we’re not leaving aside the old glories, and we can also see familiar faces such as Iron Man, Thor and Captain America.”
For the best question they asked him what character he’s most excited about seeing brought to the big screen:
“Dr. Strange! I love the aura of mystery that surrounds this superhero and the magical world that surrounds him. We’ve never faced anything like this and there is a lot of material that we could exploit. I would love to also see a new superhero in the ranks of the Avengers. We shall see!”
I’m unsure whether that means that the Sorcerer Supreme will be joining the Avengers or not. (I don’t see why not) One thing is certain the man talks about Dr. Strange with crazy enthusiasm. I take that almost as confirmation that we’ll see him in Phase 3.
