In a long-ish article chronicling the history of Marvel Studios at BloombergBusinessweek, a few tidbits of the future of Marvel movies have been revealed. Most of the article focuses on Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios.

On Feige and his approach to the Marvel movies, the article says:

"Much of Marvel’s success can be attributed to Feige. He has a special understanding of comics, fans, superheroes, and narrative. He concedes that Marvel won’t recover the film rights to Spider-Man or the X-Men anytime soon but says Marvel has something more valuable: a universe of thousands of characters it controls entirely. That means Feige can produce an unlimited number of films with interweaving story lines and characters, creating a vast audience for almost any Marvel movie. People might show up for The Avengers, meet the Black Widow, and come back for her movie, too."

 

And how long can this go on? At least into the next decade or so:

"There’s a map of films reaching far into the next decade on the wall of Feige’s office. “It’s like looking through the Hubble telescope. You go, ‘What’s happening back there? I can sort of see it,’ ” he laughs. “They printed out a new one recently that went to 2028.” "

 

2028? Your move DC!

In another portion of the article, an encounter with Guardians of the Galaxy's director James Gunn is detailed and that conversation teases something:

"They’re watching a rough, animated version of the film on a big screen on the wall. It helps Gunn visualize certain critical scenes before he shoots them with actors.

Gunn freezes a frame of an imposing-looking villain any serious comic book fan would recognize instantly. He sits on a rocket-powered throne. Feige sees something on the screen that he doesn’t like. The evildoer needs to be farther away in the frame so he looks more imperious, he says."

 

"“Those don’t need to be rockets,” he says. “Maybe gravity disks?” Feige says he’ll check back later.
 
In the hallway he extracts a pledge not to name the bad guy. “That could not be a bigger spoiler,” Feige says."
