Another nifty tidbit mentioned by Disney chief creative officer Alan Horn during TheHollywoodReporter‘s studio head roundtable is that he alludes that Kevin Feige will continue to make three to four Marvel movies each year for the foreseeable future.
THR: Alan, I remember when American Idol was No. 1 for many years in a row and its audience was 30 million viewers a night. The president of NBC at the time, I believe it was Jeff Zucker, said, “Someday it will not be cool to watch American Idol.” Do you think about when that day comes for the Marvel movies?
HORN: “The answer is no. If the film has a compelling storyline, if it has heart and humor, two things that I insist on, and it’s terrifically well executed, I think there is an audience. But who knows?”
THR: Twenty-three hits in a row is an unprecedented streak.
HORN: “It is long. But Kevin Feige is working away. He will be making three or four a year. And they are very different from one another, so we’ll see.”
Those upcoming MCU movies that are official include the following and in 2021 we’ll see our first year of having four movies.
- Black Widow – May 1st, 2020
- Eternals – November 6th, 2020
- Shang-Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings – February 12th, 2021
- Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness – May 7th, 2021
- Spider-Man 3 – July 16th, 2021 (Sony Pictures)
- Thor: Love & Thunder – November 5th, 2021
- Black Panther 2 – May 5th, 2022
- Guardians of The Galaxy 3 – Release Date Unknown
- Captain Marvel 2 – Release Date Unknown
- Blade – Release Date Unknown
Other feature films expected to be announced down the line include Deadpool 3, Ant-Man 3, Fantastic Four, X-Men, Nova, and possibly even Young Avengers.
Post-Endgame it will be interesting to see how they move on from characters like Tony Stark and Steve Rogers along with what future event films could end up looking like.
Kevin has also been promoted to the chief creative officer at Marvel which will see him involved with publishing, film, television, and animation.
He’s been branching out with television as a wave of Disney+ shows had been announced that include The Falcon & The Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, Hawkeye, What-If?, She-Hulk, Moon Knight, and Ms. Marvel.
Feige might even try his hand on producing a Star Wars movie as reports claimed he would be getting involved with an unknown film project.
I don’t think we’re going to see a slowdown of MCU releases anytime soon.
