Kevin Feige Talks Marvel’s PHASE TWO Approach; GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Is “95% In Space”

Addressing Thor: The Dark World & Guardians of the Galaxy as films that'll tackle the Marvel universe's cosmic side, teasing the direction for the overall slate, furthermore, check out what Feige says.



The Latest issue of SFX Magazine will feature an exclusive chat with Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige, in anticipation of Iron Man 3. Of course, Feige also discusses plans for other Phase Two entries, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy and ultimately The Avengers 2. Whether “cosmic” is a fair description of Phase Two, Feige said:

“I wouldn’t say that in a broad sense. The Thor film and the Guardians Of The Galaxy film certainly are cosmic. Guardians and Thor will take the brunt of the cosmic side of the universe, particularly Guardians, which is 95% in space. I think Iron Man 3 shows the other side of Phase 2, which is delving deeper into the characters. Throwing them on a much more personal journey. And Captain America will showcase… What’s exciting to me about Cap – sort of about Iron Man 3 too if you look at it – is it’s tonally almost like a different genre. Shane Black’s described Iron Man 3 as a Tom Clancy sort of political thriller, which I like a lot. We hired our directors on Cap because they loved our explanation that we really want to make a ’70s political thriller masquerading as a big superhero movie. Just like with the first film – we got Joe Johnston because we said, ‘We want to do a ’40s World War Two movie masquerading as a big superhero movie.’ I love that we’re doing a sequel to a film that’s a completely different genre than the first film. I think that’s fun. And the comics do it all the time.”

Whether Guardians Of The Galaxy will “prove as integral to Avengers 2 as each Avenger’s solo film,” Kevin Feige admits, “I would say that it does not. It’s much more of a standalone film. It takes place in the same universe. And when we’ve been on the other side of that universe in other movies, you might see those characteristics in Guardians, but the Avengers are not involved with what’s happening out there at this time.” For the full-length interview with Feige, pick up the latest SFX issue or stay tuned to Comic Book Movie later this week.
