By the time Phase 3 concludes in 2019, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will have spanned over a decade — and, according to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, there are no plans to stop there. During an interview with Deadline, he compared the MCU to the “James Bond” franchise, but said he’s not worried about recasting or revamping it just yet.
Asked when the main cast will pass the torch to a new set of characters, Feige said, “Not for a very long time, certainly not through the next nine, ten movies that we’re working on, which is great. If we had to deal with that, movie to movie we wouldn’t have been able to build the cinematic universe the way we have. The short, easy answer is I’m not thinking about that right now because I’m thinking about how to complete and surprise these upcoming incarnations. Past that? I don’t know. I greatly admire what the Broccolis have done with ‘James Bond’; how could you not? Fifty years and going strong, with a character that will outlive any particular actor, director, producer, studio executive. That will continue. If you look at how all of our characters have been revamped from decade to decade in the comics, with new artists and new writers and new incarnations, and I think it’s destined to happen in our cinematic universe as well. But, I don’t have to worry about that right now.”
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan and more, “Captain America: Civil War” — the latest installment of the MCU — is now in theaters.
