Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige dished on the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Three plans during an interview with Empire, where he teased “Thor: Ragnarok’s” galactic scale, the scope of the new “Spider-Man” film and where we’ll see Thanos next.
As to “Thor: Ragnarok,” he revealed, “I don’t think people will read into that title alone [regarding] what the movie’s going to be. It’s going to be, perhaps, as totally different from the two prior ‘Thor’ movies as ‘Winter Soldier’ was from the first Captain America. We want to take it to new places, we’ve got new characters that will show how big we’re swinging on this. And we have a Hulk.”
“The film takes place within the cosmos primarily which is to say, frankly, very little Earth,” he added.
He also announced that Thanos won’t be putting in much of an appearance in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” saying, “I wouldn’t look too hard in that movie for Thanos.” However, “The next time we see Thanos, he will not be messing around. It was be, ‘Oh, that’s why they’ve been teasing this villain for five years!'”
In regards to the “Spider-Man” reboot, he explained that its “smaller scale is all relative… It’s going to be as big and spectacular a Spider-Man film as has ever been made. But it’s a Peter Parker story and has more opportunity to be focused on the story of a 15-year-old kid going to high school.”
“Thor: Ragnarok” stars Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo and is scheduled to be released on November 3, 2017. Starring Tom Holland, “Spider-Man” arrives on on July 28, 2017. “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” directed by James Gunn, will bow on May 5, 2017.
