Marvel Won’t Announce New Phase Three Films Until ‘a Year From Now’

by  in Comic News, Movie News Comment

Marvel Studios is keeping a lid on the third phase of its cinematic universe.

Even as rumors swirl about Doctor Strange, Black Panther and other projects, studio President Kevin Feige tells Collider to count on one thing and one thing only: absolutely no confirmation on the studio’s post-Ant-Man plans until 2014.

“I think it would probably be, at the earliest, a year from now,” he said about when fans can expect additional movie announcements. “It’s only 2013 now.”

Feige said he and his team are wholly focused on what’s directly in front of them: Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Age of Ultron. And fans can expect something special regarding that slate of films when Marvel appears next month at Disney’s D23 Expo.

“Totally,” Feige said when asked if Marvel fans need to pay attention to the event. “It’s a unique, big and important Disney corporate event.”
