The Avengers has come and is raking in massive amounts of money. Anyone who sees it is probably wondering when The Avengers 2 will happen. The answer? Not for a while. Marvel has to pump out Iron Man 3 in May 2013, Thor 2 in November 2013 and Captain America 2 in Spring 2014 first. THEN they can make a move on The Avengers.
So what can we expect for our heroes? Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios boss, explains in an interview with Chud:
If we do an Avengers 2 it will be after [Iron Man 3, Thor 2, Captain America 2]. They have to grow, they have to change. What they’ve gone through in this movie will impact their state of mind and where they stand in their next movies. Then whatever they go through in those movies is going to affect where we meet them in the next Avengers film. But I think people will be surprised to see, as we go forward – particularly in Iron Man 3 – the notion of how singular the stories can become. Iron Man 3 is a very singular Tony Stark story. As is Thor 2. Cap, who is stuck in the modern day with no friends or family, there will be some revelations of who is still alive from his days in WWII, but SHIELD and Nick Fury are kind of his confidants right now. So of all these movies, Captain America 2 will be most closely associated with Avengers.
So there you have it. Iron Man will be on his own in Iron Man 3 dealing with his own thing, Thor will be dealing with his own thing while Cap will be dealing with living in the modern world and knowing that everyone he used to know is probably dead.
Which of Marvel’s Big Three are you looking forward to? [CHUD]
