Everyone knows Joss Whedon‘s $220 million dollar Avengers film will feature Marvel’s A-List super heroes – Captain America, Thor, Iron Man and Scarlett Johansson’s boobs. However, folks have been pondering what other Marvel character will appear. Marvel is Known to insert chararcters references and other easter eggs. The rumors have been swirling.
Will Ant-Man make a cameo? Will there be more after the credits footage when the movie is over? While we can’t say for certain what will happen at the end of Marvel‘s big budget it’s President of Production Kevin Feige can guarantee one thing for sure.
“We didn’t want to make a big mess. They don’t walk through the S.H.I.E.L.D commissary and see another 20 superheroes.”
That means kiss those chances of seeing any super powered cameos goodbye people. In a recent interview and cover story from Entertainment Weekly for The Avengers , Kevin confirmed that only the main cast will be involved in production. No half second shots of costumes for future franchises, it’ll just be everyone that has already had or been involved in the previous Marvel movies.
As for what else was revealed, also in the article (seen below), is the future of the Marvel studio post-Avengers. Here’s the lowdown on what you’ll be seeing for the next decade:
Iron Man 3: Still running strong for it’s May 2013 debut, Shane Black still behind the director’s chair (for now).
Thor 2: The news is that Patty Jenkins (Monster) is in talks to direct this sequel, as we mentioned in a previous post.
Ant-Man: EW says it’s “still nebulous but definitely in the works.” Edgar Wright has “developed an excellent draft recently,” said Kevin. Wright has been working on said script with the director of Attack The Block, Joe Cornish, for months and months. Hurry it up fellas.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Set in an alternate future, this superhero team (created in 1969) focuses on being a “Big Space Epic”, Hinted by Thor as part of the cosmic side of the Marvel universe. Each hero, representing a planet, are the last of their kind trying to defend the universe.
The Inhumans: Another series from the 60’s, this time focusing on the decendants of humans experiment on by the Kree( rumored villians of the Avengers film). If this or Guardians of the Galaxy do happen to get into production soon expect an X-men style feature, minus Bryan Singer.
What! No love for Luke Cage? Something tells me that someone needs to sneak in a few words with Kevin over this tragedy of a decision, but it still looks like a strong line up to drain your wallet over. The next few years are going to be really big for Marvel, they just have to wait and see how their future holds up with the release of The Avengers on May 14th, 2013.
