Guardians of the Galaxy screenings and its Los Angeles premiere also have a lot to do with all the headlines right before Comic-Con. No complaints.
Collider.com was able to grab an exclusive interview with studio head Kevin Feige yesterday. While I won't get into all the specific details of the exclusive, you can click right here to go there are read the complete interview, I will round-up some of the things teased about Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Feige on casting Josh Brolin as Thanos to a multi-picture deal:
"We knew he was going to be in [Guardians of the Galaxy]. We wanted somebody to be more than just the voice. Josh did the performance as well. We were looking at a wish list of, 'Wouldn’t it be great if names,' and his name was on it. And you look at his face and the performances he gives, he could be Thanos without any effects. He has that kind of face and that kind of gravitas to it."
On Captain America 3 and Thor 3:
"Both in development, both in the works. Cap has already been announced, so that’s up first. That’s in a further stage. Thor is being outlined right now, so both in the works."
On if an actor has already been cast as Doctor Strange:
"No." [Then nods his head to imply one has been picked but a contract hasn't been signed yet.]
On if diverse leading roles are coming with a solo Black Panther movie or solo Ms. Marvel movie:
"I think we could, it’s a matter of when."
On if Robert Downey Jr. will ever do Iron Man 4:
"Of course anything’s a possibility. Who the heck knows? We have a lot of work to go to finish Avengers 2. We have a lot of work for whatever Avengers 3 is, that’s all folks need to know. Who knows what happens after that."
