Marvel president Kevin Feige has confirmed that sequels are already being planned for both “Thor” and “Captain America: The First Avenger” once “The Avengers” has been released.
Feige tells D23 Magazine that after their teaming up in ‘Avengers’, “Thor will go off into a new adventure, and Captain America will continue to explore the modern world in another film of his own. We hope that holds true for the characters appearing in that film – Black Widow, Hawkeye, and the spy organization, S.H.I.E.L.D. – all of whom are more than worthy and capable of carrying their own films.”
Feige adds that there are “a lot of other characters we’re prepping and getting ready for film debuts: the world of martial arts, these great cosmic space fantasies, Doctor Strange, and the magic side of the Marvel Universe. There are many, many stories to be mined.”
