Captain America: Civil War is days away, and excitement is at an all-time high as a result. When we caught up with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige at the UK premiere in London earlier this evening, he gave us the scoop on everything from Marvel’s decision to adapt Civil War to the making of a spectacular scene between Peter Parker and Tony Stark in the movie.
However, it was when he addressed the characters who aren’t in Captain America: Civil War that things got really interesting. “Both Thor and Hulk are not in this movie,” he confirmed, bringing an end to rumours which have been doing the rounds for ages. “You will learn where they are in the next Thor movie, Thor: Ragnarok. We start filming that in two months.”
Feige then seemed to confirm that we’ll be seeing Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury BEFORE Avengers: Infinity War. “You’ll see him not in [Thor: Ragnarok], but an upcoming movie.”
What that movie will be remains to be seen, but talk then turned to Spider-Man and that rather complicated deal with Sony Pictures which has brought the wall-crawler into the Marvel Cinematic Universe at long last. “Well, I’ve known all those people for a very long time. Amy Pascal, Tom Rothman, who runs Sony now, I’ve known for years. So, it’s been great. They really are supportive in allowing us to make the creative decisions to make [Spider-Man: Homecoming], but they’ve been great partners. So far so good on that movie.”
So, we now know that Marvel has full creative control over that reboot. What a relief, eh?
