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.
"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.
"The possibilities are endless."
