Marvel planning movies through to 2028
With Captain America 2 now playing worldwide, Kevin Feige's Marvel Studios masterplan is continuing well into the next decade...
Captain America: The Winter Soldier finally makes it to US cinemas this weekend, and it's expected to do huge business. Furthermore, it pretty much officially marks the beginning of summer blockbuster season again.
It's no secret that Marvel has several movies planned ahead, with the next five years bringing us two sequels to The Avengers, and one apiece to Captain America and Thor. Furthermore, Ant-Man is confirmed, and Doctor Strange - while unannounced - is widely assumed to be getting the green light too.
Beyond that? Well, in a piece over at Bloomberg, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has revealed that the current plans go as far forward as 2028 at the moment. Specifically, "there's a map of films reaching far into the next decade on the wall of Feige's office".
Of course plans change. Standalone Hulk and Black Widow movies are long demanded, but there's a hope too that Marvel will gamble on some of its lesser-known heroes, as it once did so successfully with Iron Man.
For now, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is set to cement Marvel's winning streak. And maybe we'll get that Doctor Strange announcement at Comic-Con this year...
