Kevin Feige: Marvel skipping SDCC, new major updates until after ‘Avengers 4’ and update on ‘Black Panther 2’

Marvel Studios is ready to drop the biggest film in….well, movie history this week with Avengers: Infinity War. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was candid at the press day about a ton of details NOT associated with Infinity War.

For example: Collider spoke with Feige asking if Coogler will definitely be back for Black Panther 2, and while it’s not a done deal it sounds very, very good.

“We definitely want Ryan to come back and that’s actively being worked out right now. When will it be? A lot of it will be when Ryan wants to and not rushing anything, but I think we have an idea of when it will be. But, again, [we’re] not going to announce any post-Avengers 4 movies until hopefully after Avengers 4, which is another reason we’re not going to Comic-Con.”

Another quote: “We’re not going to Hall H this year. It will be an off year… which is what we did after Avengers 1 and what we’ve done every few years. There will be a tenth anniversary presence at Comic-Con but [no Hall H panel.]”

More on Black Panther 2 below.

Feige says their plans would have changed if Black Panther had not been received so warmly.

“The success of Panther is so amazing and makes us happy for so many reasons, and it certainly exceeded our lofty expectations. But our expectations were always lofty, so we had built a plan, not the least of which was centering so much of Infinity War in those locations and with some of those characters, that [its success] just says, ‘Let’s stick to this plan.’ It would have bee much more disruptive if it had not worked. Then we would have had to change a lot of what we were thinking about, but it really just solidifies and excites us to continue to move forward in the directions we’re heading in.”

According to The Wrap, Marvel Studios could be considering Eternals. “‘Eternals’ is one of many many many things that we are actively beginning to have creative discussions about to see if we believe in them enough to put them on a slate,” Feige said. However, he noted that 90% of the studio’s attention right now is on Avengers: Infinity WarAnt-Man and the WaspCaptain MarvelAvengers 4, and Spider-Man: Homecoming 2.

He continued: “But there’s 10 percent we’re starting to go, ‘What’s going to be best?’ And some of that is you can take cues from everything we’ve done in the 22 movies before those — which is sequels to existing characters, new interpretation of existing characters and trying whole new swings with stuff that most people never heard of. So there are writers coming in on lots of different projects and lots of different ideas. And you’ll only start to hear more and more of it.”

The Wrap says “multiple screenwriters have taken meetings and have been asked to come up with a story that focuses on the female Eternal known as Sersi.”

The Eternals are a fictional race of humanity appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. They are described as an offshoot of the evolutionary process that created sentient life on Earth. The original instigators of this process, the alien Celestials, intended the Eternals to be the defenders of Earth, which leads to the inevitability of war against their destructive counterparts, the Deviants. The Eternals were created by Jack Kirby and made their first appearance in The Eternals #1 (July 1976).

The Celestials have already been introduced in the MCU in a matter of speaking. Knowhere in Guardians of the Galaxy is the giant severed head of a Celestial. Ego, the villain of Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 is also a Celestial.
