Avengers: Infinity War released last Friday, bringing the hype and excitement to a culmination, and now that the film has turned out to be a record-shattering success at the box office, the great thing is that there are two more Marvel movies to come between now and Avengers 4.
First out will be the Ant-Man And The Wasp, releasing this July, and it is not surprising to predict the upcoming film to match the theme of 2015’s Ant-Man. However, the most mysterious project right now is Captain Marvel, scheduled to release next March and a film that is set to be the debut of former Air Force pilot turned into half-human superhero Carol Danvers (Brie Larson).
Every new Marvel movie generally brings forward a different theme, and the Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige was recently asked about the tone that the directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are creating in Captain Marvel. “I would say, like all of our movies, the tone will vary,” answered Feige. “There are some very funny things in the movie. There are some very scary things in the movie. There’s some very emotional things in the movie.”
“We are tapping into, in a way we haven’t before, the Kree-Skrull War from the comics,” he continued. “It is very much a cosmic film that also has earthbound elements because of the setting. And as you know, we’ve revealed that it’s set in the ’90s. Anna and Ryan are tapping into their shared love of sort of ’90s action films to a certain extent that just allows us to play in a fun new arena. But that film is entirely about introducing audiences to Carol Danvers and to a hero who is more powerful than any hero we’ve ever introduced.”
Now that it is pretty much confirmed that Danvers would be a part of Avengers 4, alongside Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and the Wasp (Evangeline Lilly), Feige was asked if the two upcoming movies will have elements which will link the two massive Avengers movies together.
“Yes. I mean, I think it’s a great combination,” said Feige. “There are elements in Infinity War which will play into both Ant-Man & the Wasp and Captain Marvel. There are elements in those two films that will play directly into Untitled Avengers. But both of them are essentially 90% or more standalone movies.”
