If you are a politically savvy adult, it was an interesting week.
But, let’s focus on some intriguing and interesting news that may shape what you will be looking forward to in entertainment in the foreseeable future.
Marvel fans, prepare yourself for the continued onslaught of movies in the Marvel Movie Universe. Vanity Fair recently interviewed the man with the plan, Kevin Feige, and we learned the following:
“Both Iger and Feige hinted at how the franchise (whose studio has rights to 7,000 characters) will expand into different realms, with James Gunn working in close collaboration to possibly spin off some characters from the extraterrestrial world of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel is “22 movies in, and we’ve got another 20 movies on the docket that are completely different from anything that’s come before—intentionally,” Feige said.”
Who will be next? What will the stories entail? Does Disney’s re-engaging in talks with 21st Century Fox change these plans…like add more to the docket? Or does the docket include some of the properties owned by 21st Century Fox? We shall see.
