So after we go the new release dates for upcoming Marvel movies, the speculation of what we will be getting started immediately… but now Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has been talking about what we may see…
Talking with IGN, Feige said to expect them to keep moving forward with the one sequel, one new movie plan: “[Guardians of the Galaxy] fulfilled our desire to do something different – to start producing, each year, a film that was the sequel to a pre-existing, successful franchise and do something new. We’re doing that next year with Age of Ultron, with Ant-Man, and hope to maybe continue that model in the coming years.
“We’ll keep to [that model] every year, but what we’re doing this year and what we’re doing next year is: existing franchise, new franchise, existing franchise, new franchise. So I think it would be fun to continue that sort of thing. I don’t know that we will [do that] all the time, but as a general model, I think that would be fun.”
But does this mean that we’ll bet a new franchise after Captain America 3? Hmmmmmmm…
He also confirmed there are talks for another Hulk movie – but not Planet Hulk which is backed up by Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn who, talking to The Playlist, said: “It is absolute, 100% bulls@#t.”
“It feels like a great relief to finally say this after all the dumb stuff on the Internet. There’s not going to be a ‘Planet Hulk’ movie, there was never going to be a ‘Planet Hulk’ movie, there was never a plan for the Hulk to team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy – I wouldn’t want the Hulk to team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy! And it’s all a bunch of complete bullshit.”
He explains where he think some of the rumour comes from: “The whole thing is, there’s Sakaraan in the movie. And the reason there’s Sakaraan in the movie is because there aren’t that many alien races in the Marvel Universe, and of those prominent alien races, such as the Kree and the Skrull. I have some very specific ideas for where those races go.
“The reason we picked the Sakaraan is because we don’t own Badoon. In the script it originally said Badoon. So you can blame search and replace for changing Badoon to Sakaaran and leading to the whole ‘Planet Hulk’ conspiracy.”
So… one sequel, one new franchise, one sequel, one new franchise. No Planet Hulk? Let us know your thoughts on this guys, below, @NerdFollowing or on Facebook
