What will happen with the Disney/Marvel movies?
The big movie studios are getting nervous about a number of topics in the wake of the “Captain America: Civil War” and “The Avengers” films.
In fact, a number are planning to release their own movies in 2019 that would be directed by their own directors.
In an interview with Deadline, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige discussed his company’s plans for the future, noting that he’s working with his partners at 20th Century Fox to make a number in 2019.
“What I’m seeing as we’re talking about 2020, the conversation around what we’re going to do in 2020, is that there’s some interesting things happening with some of our projects that have a very similar structure,” Feige said.
“So, the question becomes, how can we put those films in the right place in 2020 to make them feel like they’re the right places to put them?
That’s the conversation I’m having with 20th.”
The most important question facing Marvel is: will it have enough films to make the leap to another era?
Feige did not comment on that, but he did acknowledge that the studio would likely have to “pile on a lot more” movies to compete with the big studios.
In the meantime, Feige was clear that the movies were not going away anytime soon.
“We’re not going to stop making films in 2019,” he said.
Feige also noted that the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be “coming to an end,” and that it would be a “long time before you can tell me who’s going to be making these movies in 2020.”
The question is, how soon after the end of the Marvel movie universe will that end?
We’ll find out in 2019, at the very least.
