The CapeTown Film festival kicked off with a QnA with Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige who gave an update on their movies.

Some of the more interesting items mentioned included:

• The Mandarin was almost the villian of Iron Man

• Compares Guardians of the Galaxy to The Avengers

With regards to Phase 2 wild card Guardians of the Galaxy, Feige is excited by the prospect of quickening the pace established by the Avengers mega-franchise. ”Avengers was a nice slow burn, introducing characters and leading up to a movie with all of them in it. I really liked the idea of going to the other side of the universe and building a team in a single movie.”

• They are looking at female characters for a movie: 

We have a number of candidates from the comics and from the movies we’ve already made. It’s just a matter of finding the right storyline, the right filmmaker, the right time.” Someone in the audience yelled “She-Hulk!” Feige responded, “She-Hulk would be pretty great.”

• No Daredevil Reboot:

There comes a time in contracts where, if a studio is done making the movies, [the characters] come home,” he explained. “That doesn’t mean we’re going to make another movie. But it means they’re back in the fold, which is where we want them to be.”
