It’s generally known that after “The Avengers”, Marvel Studios is looking into making smaller-budgeted films based around their second and third-tier characters.
Talking with MTV News, Marvel’s Kevin Feige was asked about what titles could be developed for films post-“Avengers” aside from the already announced “Runaways” adaptation.
“I think what Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction have done with ‘Iron Fist’ lately is exciting. I think ‘Black Panther’ and Wakanda has some amazing potential to be a feature film. ‘Doctor Strange,’ as you’ve mentioned. There are some obscure titles, too, like ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’ I think they’ve been revamped recently in a fun way in the book” says Feige.
Asked if Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) would get his own film, Feige says “I think the answer is yes… I think S.H.I.E.L.D. could be it’s own franchise. I think, frankly, ‘The Avengers’ is going to be told from that point of view more so than any of the other films at that point, so we’re going to get an inside look [at how S.H.I.E.L.D.] operates.”
