As we all sit and wait patiently for Marvel’s Phase 2 to finish up and Phase 3 information to leak out and let us know what the hell is going on, Kevin Feige is once again speaking to the press, answering questions about shit that he’s probably getting tired of addressing by now. Prodded this time by Movies.com, Feige answered a few questions concerning the upcoming Doctor Strange as well as voicing his opinion on the viability of a female super hero lead gracing the big screen in the future. Check it out below.
When asked about the almighty Doctor Strange, he had this to say:
“Doc Strange, as I’ve been saying for years, is a movie I believe we should make — we’re just figuring out how to make it a great movie. It is in active development right now. Whether that’s one of the movies we announce for 2016 or 2017, we have to see. I think it’ll be the middle of next year before we announce officially what the post Ant-Man films will be.”
And as for those rumors surrounding a lady-led Marvel flick:
“I don’t know what they’re doing or what they’re planning, I know we have numerous exciting female heroes, whether none of them are currently slated, some of them are in development — frankly, you can look at what Jane Foster does in [Thor: The Dark World], look at Pepper Potts literally saving the day and defeating the bad guy in Iron Man 3, and I’d say we already have great female heroes that are showcased and play major roles in our universe now. Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as you will see, features Black Widow in her biggest role yet in any of our films. In terms of a solo standalone female hero, I’m not sure when that will be. We make two movies a year, we’ve planned through 2015 and we have some ideas of what we’re doing in 2016 and 2017, so we’ll see what happens.”
Well, that’s not really much of an answer, but I guess he’s at least saying something, right? So I guess we just wait around until Feige and the Marvel team are ready to tell us what’s happening for sure. In meanwhile, please continue your speculation.
