Sequels For Thor & Captain America Already In The Works

 Sequels For Thor & Captain America Already In The Works

We have another couple weeks before Thor opens in theaters but Hollywood doesn’t sleep. News of possible sequels for Marvel’s summer blockbusters are already being talked about in the upcoming interview with Disney. The studio president, Ken Feige, spoke about plans for the characters after the inevitably epic Avengers movie drops in 2012:

“X-Men was the dawn of the new Marvel cinematic age,” said Feige. “Iron Man was the dawn of the Marvel Studios age and the establishment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the beginning of that continuity. The Avengers is the next big step. Once all these characters come together, it’s the culmination of all that has come before. It launches a new era and a new time in the history of our films. Not only will it be the first film that our new home studio, Disney, will be distributing, but it will also renew each of these characters and launch them into their own franchises, starting with the second film to be released by Disney, Iron Man 3. Thor will go off into a new adventure, and Captain America will continue to explore the modern world in another film of his own. We hope that holds true for the characters appearing in that film — Black Widow, Hawkeye, and the spy organization, S.H.I.E.L.D. —all of whom are more than worthy and capable of carrying their own films. And, we’ve got a lot of other characters we’re prepping and getting ready for film debuts: the world of martial arts, these great cosmic space fantasies, Dr. Strange, and the magic side of the Marvel Universe. There are many, many stories to be mined”

With the idea that each sequel will be taking the characters in their own respective directions, one can see them possibly going back to the issue they had originally. A major selling point for Marvel Studios making these films is the unified idea of it all. We all want continuity in the comic movies. I believe its a scary path to take for the production company but, if done correctly, the step could set them apart from everyone else in a very positive way.
Do you think this is the right move for Marvel? Tell us in the comments.

I'm a man of tomorrow still holding onto the joys of yesterday. I miss Nick cartoons, and Power Rangers but I cant get enough of the Time Lords, and Serial Killers we have now. My many distractions include computers, movies, comics, and I like to imagine my life story would be scored with a mixture of Death Cab, A3, and a lot of Kid Cudi. We've entered the Geekological Revolution. A time of Vulcan Death Grips, drinks with friends on Tatooine, and attempting to build a freeze ray. Things have changed, muscle headed bullies. The Nerds rule the world now, and we reign SUPREME!

  • No one in the movie business presently has the creativity it takes to take a concept and transform that concept into a cinematic production. Therefore they revert to the stories that have already been written and they put their own spin on another persons thoughts. I am not saying that i do not enjoy watching these ready made live action portrayals. I am simply saying that we as a movie loving society need to brace ourselves, because our future is filled with nothing but remakes, sequels, and page to screen films.

    • I completely agree. As sad as it is, alternatively it is kinda nice to see those old stories being portrayed in a modern way. Not to say that the originals don’t hold some homey original feel to them. I definitely prefer the beginning ideas over the re-tellings. But I will take what I can get.
