Kevin Feige Confirms Thor and Captain America Sequels

Details about the future of the Marvel Universe on the big screen have been revealed thanks to IGN and an upcoming interview in Disney’s D23 magazine. In it, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige drops a number of intriguing hints about what the studio has in the works.

 "Thor will go off into a new adventure," says Feige, "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."

Though Doctor Strange, Black Widow and S.H.I.E.L.D. films have been previously brought up as potential projects, a Hawkeye feature is new to the discussion as is confirmation that Captain America 2 will be set in the present.

Marvel Studios, in the meantime, is gearing up for an incredible summer slate with Thor hitting on May 6th and Captain America: The First Avenger following on July 22nd.
