There's no denying it - Marvel definitely has a grand plan. Over the past few years we've seen sensational superhero synergy as the greatest heroes of the Marvel universe assembled on screen. But what are they planning for the future? President of production, Kevin Feige recently revealed that there are movies planned all the way to 2021. And we might finally get a glimpse at these new titles when they are revealed next year.
During a press-conference for the upcoming 'Thor: The Dark World', Marvel studio boss Kevin Feige explained that we will find out more about their upcoming slate… but according to ComicBook.com that won't be until next year.
"We're a very tight-knit group at the studio, so all the movies are very, very coordinated," said Feige. "And we have them announced through the end of 2015, but are planning as far out as 2017. And sometime next year, we'll announce what those films are for '16 and '17."
While there are some films slated for May 6, 2016, July 8, 2016, and May 5, 2017, they remain unannounced… at least, for now. But it seems that 2014 will be a pretty revealing year for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Of course, these unannounced movies have been the subject of much speculation - many believing that they will add to Marvel's impressive roster of superheroes with the highly-anticipated Doctor Strange or even a Hulk movie starring Mark Ruffalo in the title role. But for now, they remain a mystery.
But will we see more small-screen efforts after the success of 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'?
"The TV division is up and running now, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was obviously their first series," Feige explained. "I know they would love to bring more things to the TV screen. I'm not exactly sure what or when that will be."
Thankfully, it looks as though Marvel's TV efforts are going to tie in with their Cinematic Universe… and it's all looking rather well thought out.
"In terms of S.H.I.E.L.D., they sort of cue off of what's happening in the movies. And occasionally, they'll check in with us and go, 'Would it be ok if we play with this little aspect?' So it is quite coordinated. But again it's such a small group it doesn't feel like an overwhelming task. It's just a lot of fun."
Will we see more interaction between Marvel's television and cinematic projects? It certainly looks that way. But while we have no idea what's to come next, it's going to be an exciting few years for the Marvel universe. And we can't wait to see what they've got up their sleeves.
