Marvel Plans Through 2028; 'Guardians' and 'Ultron' Spin-Offs Possible

While Kevin Feige has things mapped out for the next 14 years, anything can happen including a Rocket Raccoon or Scarlet Witch solo movie.
While Marvel Studios head honcho and producer Kevin Feige had previously teased that Marvel movies were planned through 2021, its now revealed that the studio actually has things plotted out all the way through 2028. And that may include spin-offs for both Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The spin-off movies may follow one of the main characters in Guardians of the Galaxy depending on how well they, and the movie, are received. This means we might see a solo adventure for Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Gamora (Zoe Saldana) or Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) himself. It is also possible that we will see a Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor) solo movie, with Vision and Scarlet Witch a huge possibility.

The report comes from Business Week, who landed a quote from Disney CEO Bob Iger.

Much of Marvel's success can be attributed to Kevin Feige. He has a special understanding of comics, fans, superheroes, and narrative. He concedes that Marvel won't recover the film rights to Spider-Man or the X-Men anytime soon but says Marvel has something more valuable: a universe of thousands of characters it controls entirely. That means Kevin Feige can produce an unlimited number of films with interweaving story lines and characters, creating a vast audience for almost any Marvel movie. People might show up for Marvel's The Avengers, meet the Black Widow, and come back for her movie, too. There's a map of films reaching far into the next decade on the wall of Kevin Feige's office.

"It's like looking through the Hubble telescope. You go, 'What's happening back there? I can sort of see it,'? They printed out a new one recently that went to 2028."


Kevin Feige's overall plan is one that exists as an outline, and will continually shift and change depending on audiences tastes and want for a certain character.

About the solo movies being planned, this is the excerpt which explains the motive behind it.

Bob Iger would like to replicate the success of Marvel's The Avengers with other Marvel teams. He says Marvel could potentially spin off members of the Guardians of the Galaxy, which include Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Groot, and Rocket Raccoon, in their own features....Bob Iger and Alan Horn, chairman of Walt Disney Studios, recently met with the Marvel team to talk about new heroes who will be introduced in Avengers: Age of Ultron and could be spun off in their own films as well. Bob Iger declines to name them.

"The possibilities are endless."

    @bawnian-dexeus they were able to in Pahase I. The Incredible Hulk didn't perform as well at the box office, and Marvel fixed that.

    Anyhow, it should be interesting watching this universe evolved over a twenty year history and see how much it has changed since 2008.

    An Ultron spin-off movie? I'd definitely like to see that!

    @superman81 Not necessarily. All along I've said that Ultron in A2 is a time traveler. If that's the case, then they can bring him back as Pym/Stark are creating him to help fight Thanos or another villain.

    @bawnian-dexeus But that is not true. That profit from other films is use up right away on other projects.

    @thedude1 But they can afford it, of which they wouldn't have been able to in phase 1.

    @bawnian-dexeus Well, a flop is a flop, and that is not good. Especially for a new leg of the Marvel Universe.

    My only problem with GoG was Batista. He just isn't a very good actor and he is already near 50. Hard to see him playing Drax in 2028. Also if they are planning more Ultron movies doesn't that kind of spoil A2?

    @therealGoku Pretty sure if the general public praises them in the same light ,they'll do fine. I may not have liked the first trailer, but 90% of the people did, so it is a good sign.

    @bawnian-dexeus I don't think anything will be wrong with the movie or will have things that need to be "fixed" I just know these characters don't get the same exposure as Iron man or captain America. So they just need to right amount of attention. That's all

  17. Bawnian©-Dexeus

    @therealGoku True, but they can afford a flop and fix any issues if they plan on sticking with those characters. If not, they can be replaced.

    How about we focus on right now & marketing? I'm excited to see GOG but it has the potential to flop if not advertised correctly
