Marvel president Kevin Feige confirmed that sequels are being planned for both summer adventures Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger after The Avengers.

Here's what Kevin Feige had to say, also indicating that he wants to spin off The Black Widow, Hawkeye, Doctor Strange, and the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization into their own separate movies.

"Thor will go off into a new adventure, and Captain America will continue to explore the modern world in another film of his own. We hope that holds true for the characters appearing in that film - Black Widow, Hawkeye, and the spy organization, S.H.I.E.L.D. -all of whom are more than worthy and capable of carrying their own films. And, we've got a lot of other characters we're prepping and getting ready for film debuts: the world of martial arts, these great cosmic space fantasies, Doctor Strange, and the magic side of the Marvel Universe. There are many, many stories to be mined."

Kevin Feige also talked about how The Avengers is the next big stepping stone in the Marvel movie universe.

"X-Men was the dawn of the new Marvel cinematic age. Iron Man was the dawn of the Marvel Studios age and the establishment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the beginning of that continuity. The Avengers is the next big step. Once all these characters come together, it's the culmination of all that has come before. It launches a new era and a new time in the history of our films. Not only will it be the first film that our new home studio, Disney, will be distributing, but it will also renew each of these characters and launch them into their own franchises, starting with the second film to be released by Disney, Iron Man 3."

Thor was released May 6th, 2011 and stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Stellan Skarsgård, Kat Dennings, Clark Gregg, Idris Elba. The film is directed by Kenneth Branagh.

Captain America: The First Avenger was released July 22nd, 2011 and stars Chris Evans, Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stan, Tommy Lee Jones, Hugo Weaving, Dominic Cooper, Richard Armitage, Stanley Tucci. The film is directed by Joe Johnston.

    @diaigma I read one review of Thor, and they mentioned that it "was better than Iron Man. Thor is Marvels crowning achievement." WOW! this person either hated Iron Man, or Thor is really that great!

    no surpsie here and even though i wonder how viable a doctor strange movie would be, it is something that i would be interested in. I just want my beloved X Men back where they belong.

    I seriously question Scarlett Johansson's ability to headline an action film. Not that I don't think a Black Widow film could be done, she's just completely uninteresting in that character. If they want to do a Black Widow film they should recast the character with someone like Emma Roberts and go back and show her time in Russia and how she was a spy and eventually how she got recruited by SHIELD.

    @bawnian-dexeus Yeah. When Disney bought Marvel, they pushed back projects, particularly Thor and Cap, so that they could become the main film distributor.

    @bawnian-dexeus lol. Yeah. Marvel has been aquiring the film rights to their smaller characters for a while now. Doctor Strange, Ant-man, and Black Panther are the next 3 to get pushed forward apparently.

    @bawnian-dexeus Wasp will be featured in the Ant-Man film while Black Panther is being set up for his own solo film. Wakanda is even mentioned in the new Captain America movie as the source of Vibranium, the alloy Cap's shield is made of.

    Oh c'mon this is to much, they are making such a huge thing over this. All of the superhero movies are like medium quality movies, they are just made for the money not the pleasure of creating something new and exciting for the audience ! Me for one can't wait for The Hobbit !

    Wow, i am surprised at the great ratings for Thor. I thought that critics were going to crap all over it.

    @ghostman - we'll see. But if I had to choose, I'd pick neither G.I.Joe or ROTF ;)

  26. Ghostman

    @diaigma yeah ur right, but I'll take Transformers:ROTF any day over G.I.Joe, and Thor does look like a fun summer movie. I'll be seeing it for the visuals. But yeah, I say final rating will still be in the 60-70% area.

    @ejk1- you would think, as more people pay attention to reviewing aggregators, that studios might actually, you know, start focusing on making good movies? :P

    @diaigma Exactly my point. Marvel believes Thor is worthy, and has decided to share it very early.
