Kevin Feige continuously built the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 4.
In the past months, Kevin Feige and the Marvel Studios have been tested by the coronavirus pandemic. The dreaded disease caused the whole team to plan the future of the franchise as carefully as possible.
Fortunately, the studios successfully launched the beginning of the new phase with the help of Disney+. The flicks that already saved phase 4 include WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and the movie Black Widow.
Still, Marvel fans will receive more in phase 4. For this year, Feige has already prepared three films and one show that will keep the universe busy.
As of the writing, Marvel Studios already began the production for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Meanwhile, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Thor: Love and Thunder already reached post-production.
The Big Boss already announced what’s next following the Black Widow’s success.
What’s next for MCU
On Rotten Tomatoes’ official YouTube Channel, the president of Marvel Studios gave critical details about the next films.
He talked about the search for the perfect start to play Shang-Chi and how they are able to complete the story. Feige also mentioned how they found the perfect filmmaker to do Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings.
“How we could find somebody to play Shang-Chi was his biggest question. When he signed up as director, our producer Jonathan Schwartz and casting director Sarah Finn looked at hundreds of people and Simu came up relatively late in the process,” he recalled.
He also praised Chloe Zhao who, reportedly, expressed interest in working for Marvel years ago. She currently works on The Eternals where the MCU will welcome 10 new characters to its timeline.
While talking about how Marvel made itself, he noted that the franchise learned how to tell stories by making the foundation of reality. In fact, they have ideas about Peter Parker’s origin story or showing Tom Hiddleston’s character watching himself in the Loki series.
Meanwhile, Feige also recalled how they almost lost their involvement in Spider-Man movies because of Sony. He reminisced how that time became emotional for them. Still, they looked into the brighter side and made another Spider-Man film with Tom Holland happen.
“It had to do with story and a love of Spider-Man and Peter Parker and the Marvel universe. And it thankfully has continued like that. And that’s where we find ourselves now,” he went on.
