Long before Iron Man hit theaters, Marvel had announced plans to make a Power Pack film along with a Shang-Chi film. Those plans, of course, never came to fruition and now, nearly 14 years later, the beloved characters have yet to debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige hasn’t completely lost all hope in bringing the family to life on the big screen.
While making the press rounds for Ant-Man and the Wasp, Feige sat down with ScreenRant and discussed the possibility of a Power Pack film. With the company having previously attempted to bring the property to the big screen in the early ’00s, as well as a failed television series back in the ’90s, it would seem Power Pack is destined to join the MCU at some point. That goes double since it was rumored last year that Marvel had plans to introduce the property in the still-mysterious Phase Four of the MCU. Now, nearly a year after those reports, Feige has confirmed his interest in adapting the property “someday.”
According to Feige, Marvel’s interest in tackling Power Pack originally stemmed from the idea of crafting a family-orientated franchise, something the Ant-Man franchise has since become, especially with the sequel to the latter. But the property is something the studio is said to continually discuss, seeming to suggest Power Pack could very well be a part of Phase Four.
“Power Pack is a property that we’ve been interested in for a long time,” Feige said. “For many years because we wanted to do something for families, something that’s a little younger, Ant-Man has kind of become that franchise, certainly with Ant-Man and the Wasp, but Power Pack still is one of the many things that we discuss, wouldn’t it be fun to do someday?”
Of course, should the studio decide to move forward with a Power Pack film, it won’t need to look far for interested parties to help bring it to life. Guardians of the Galaxy writer and director James Gunn has previously teased that he pitched a Power Pack reboot for Marvel Comics’ Max line, indicating he may very well have a unique take on the characters he could bring to the big screen.
Just last year, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 actor Michael Rosenbaum revealed that he’d love to write and direct a Power Pack film. For now, Power Pack appears to be a ways off, but fans can rest easy knowing Feige hasn’t written the characters off just yet.
