Kevin Feige Talks More About Marvel's 2016/2017 Plans; Confirms NAMOR Is Still At Universal

While it was believed the rights to Namor the Submariner had returned to Marvel, Kevin Feige has now confirmed that they remain at Universal. He also discusses their approach to deciding which movies will be released in 2016 and 2017 and teases Hawkeye's larger role in The Avengers: Age of Ultron.


Talking to Empire Magazine at the recent D23 Expo, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige cleared up a few rumours and teasingly addressed the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When asked when we should expect to hear some solid news on which characters will be filling those recently announced 2016 and 2017 release date slots, he said: "Next spring is when we really sit down and start to decide what we announce for 2016 and 2017." So, in that case, it could be as late as next year's San Diego Comic-Con when we find out! Either way, Feige was quick to point out that he's still keen to exploit the popularity of the Hulk ("I think we have something special with our Mark Ruffalo Banner, and we'd love to see where we could take his stories"), adding that the Green Goliath will have "a significant role" in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Speaking of which, he's not the only member of Earth's Mightiest Heroes who will have a big role in the sequel. So will Hawkeye! "Joss has a great storyline in mind for him that shows a deeper side and further fleshes out our favourite archer." Finally, Feige added that there are still no plans to introduce Ant-Man and Wasp in the movie, adding that when it comes to their next wave of movies, "There are three or four slots. We've got six or seven things going. We've got to choose which four will go. It's a Battle Royale!" Will one of them be Namor? Nope. "That's at Universal."
