A couple of updates today on a few upcoming Marvel projects in the wake of “Captain Marvel” having just wrapped production, “Spider-Man: Far from Home” having just begun filming, and “Ant-Man and the Wasp” currently dominating the box-office.
First up, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige was asked that with the Disney & Fox merger now effectively set, there’s still no rush on their part to introduce “X-Men” or “Fantastic Four” into the MCU anytime soon:
“Not until we’re given the word. I have vague dreams and vague ideas. But right now, bringing to life the 10,000-plus characters that Marvel fully controls is what the gameplan is… I’m very busy for the foreseeable future.”
Additionally, he tells Birth Movies Death that he and the Russo Brothers have been in the fourth “Avengers” editing room for the last few weeks and are ahead of schedule at this point compared to a normal Marvel Cinematic Universe project:
“We’re just starting the edit. The brothers have worked on their cut, and we’ve been together in the editing room for a couple weeks now, so it’s very early days. But it’s much earlier than usual, right? Usually, we’re still filming.
Captain Marvel comes out in March, while this one comes out in May and we’re already starting. It’s fun to get a jump, it’s good having already shot the majority of the movie. So we’re just getting into our traditional editorial process now.”
Feige has also teased he’s open to both “Ant-Man” villains so far, Ghost and Yellowjacket, returning in future installments of that franchise. Check out BossLogic’s skilled fan art for the fourth “Avengers” below:
