Just in case anyone had doubts that Marvel Studios is committed to its cinematic universe for the long haul, President Kevin Feige recently revealed there are currently plans for movies through 2028.
The reveal came as a result of a profile Bloomberg Businessweek did on Feige and his work with Marvel Studios throughout the years. The interviewer took special notice of a map on the wall of Feige’s Burbank, Calif., office that outlines the studios current plans for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“It’s like looking through the Hubble telescope. You go, ‘What’s happening back there? I can sort of see it,’” Feige said. “They printed out a new one recently that went to 2028.”
In the interview, Feige said Marvel will probably not get the rights to “Spider-Man” or “X-Men” back any time in the near future. However, he said he is content with the bevy of Marvel characters to which he does have access.
As The Hollywood Reporter notes, Marvel Studios maintains the rights to about 8,000 characters that could each be featured in a film or TV series of their very own.
This leaves Feige in a position to expand this unified world of TV and film in the same way Marvel has expanded and connected its various comic book story lines throughout the past decades.
With “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” adding at least two new heroes, Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch, there’s no telling what these projects will be, but the possibilities are almost endless.
