The third and finalas announced so farphase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Phase Three, will finally commence in the upcoming film “Captain America: Civil War.” This will be followed by the equally highly anticipated “Doctor Strange.”
In 2017, there will be a lot of MCU Phase Three films as well. They will give way to the big screen release of sequels like James Gunn’s “Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2” and “Thor: Ragnarok.” The same year will also mark the first standalone film of Tom Holland as the new Peter Parker or Spider-Man.
In line with all of these, Marvel Studios President and Executive Producer Kevin Feige delved into the details about the future of the franchise. He likewise discussed how all the movies will be connected to each other, culminating to one big comic book movie event that had been decades in the making.
In a recent interview with Empire Magazine as reported by Comic Book Movie Feige gave details on three specific films that are part of the Phase Three of the MCU: “Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2,” the yet untitled “Spider-Man” reboot, and “Thor: Ragnarok.”
According to Feige, the sequel to the hit 2015 film will feature some kind of team member expansions, as the original source material featured wide variations of members of the Guardians of The Galaxy. However, Thanos as a villain should not be expectedyet.
“I wouldn’t look too hard in that movie for Thanos,” Feige said. “The next time we see Thanos he will not be messing around. It will be, ‘Oh, that’s why they’ve been teasing this villain for five years!'”
He also dished on the scale of the upcoming reboot of “Spider-Man,” which will feature a younger version of the hero Peter Parker.
“It’s going to be as big and spectacular a ‘Spider-Man’ film as has ever been made. But it’s a Peter Parker story and has more opportunity to be focused on the story of a 15-year-old kid going to high school.”
Finally, Feige revealed that the third “Thor” film will be taking viewers to a whole new place that is far from Earth. “The film takes place within the cosmos primarily which is to say, frankly, very little Earth.”
