Kevin Feige Updates The Avengers 2 Following Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Spoilers follow for Captain America 2.
We get an update on The Avengers 2 from Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige, which follow the events seen in Captain America 2.
Crave Online interviewed Kevin Feige who offered the following details:
With S.H.I.E.L.D. being dismantled, Feige hints as to who will back The Avengers:
Did you notice the very brief glimpse of Stark Tower in [Captain America: The Winter Soldier]? It looks different… There’s a big “A” on it now.
About the Doctor Strange Easter Egg in Captain America 2 and where Strange sits in the MCU:
So is Stephen Strange the Sorcerer Supreme? Probably not at that point. Is he an unbelievably talented neurosurgeon who’s opinionated and kind of arrogant? Probably. That might put him on the list.
Where was Hawkeye in Captain America 2?
We will discover, later, the answers to that question. But it really came down to how many players can you have on the field at this time?
So we didn’t want to just have, “Hey, I’m Hawkeye! Hey, I’m Iron Man!” We want to avoid the brief cameos of the week.
Worried about too many characters in The Avengers 2?
Well yes, not every character from every movie is going to be in Age of Ultron, for sure. But Joss [Whedon] is excited and, for the characters you haven’t seen since the first Avengers – like Hawkeye, like Hulk – there’s a reason for that, and that gets showcased quite prominently in Age of Ultron.
Feige says the 2016/17 movies will be announced soon (we're guessing Comic-Con).
Feige comments on the Captain America 2 post-credit scene with Baron Von Struck featuring Loki's scepter. Was it an Infinity Stone?
Well, it’s certainly pure speculation at this point. I’m not even sure if we even recognize Loki’s scepter [as an Infinity Stone], but that’s a big hint as to what will be causing them trouble in the next movie.
"The Avengers: Age Of Ultron" hits May 1, 2015 directed by Joss Whedon starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Elizabeh Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver with James Spader as Ultron.
