PREVIEWS: "Mighty Thor," "Star Wars," & More Marvel Comics On Sale February 17, 2016
While we’ve known, or at least strongly suspected, for a while that Marvel’s big-screen plans likely included the Inhumans and the Guardians of the Galaxy, the new issue of Entertainment Weekly — the one with The Avengers on the cover, naturally — provides the first confirmation.
In a sidebar to the Avengers feature, EW rattles off a list of five films that will occupy Marvel’s time after Earth’s Mightiest Heroes arrive in theaters in March. In addition to Iron Man 3 and Thor 2, there’s Ant-Man — “still nebulous, but definitely in the works,” the magazine says — Guardians of the Galaxy and Inhumans. “There’s an opportunity to do a big space epic, which Thor sort of hints at, in the cosmic side of the [Marvel] universe,” says Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.
Curiously, though, there’s no mention of Doctor Strange, which is reportedly is search of a director to oversee development, or Runaways, which screenwriter Drew Pearce had said is just waiting for a greenlight.
