After the panel for Iron Man 2 at the San Diego Comic-Con, ComingSoon.net/Superhero Hype! participated in interviews with those in attendance. You can listen to the full interviews using the links below, but we wanted to highlight what Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige said about two of the studio’s upcoming adaptations.
After taking a bit of guff from reporters over his Black Widow being hitched to DC’s Green Lantern (that’s Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds if you’re lost), Feige who reminded everyone that Reynolds is also Marvel’s Deadpool said a couple of interesting things regarding both the Captain America film and The Avengers movie the studio is working towards. While coy on details, Feige did admit that the Captain America movie will likely see a more international cast than any other Marvel film, given that much of it will be shot overseas. That nugget prompted a logical follow up question Will the Invaders be in the movie?
“I don’t know,” said Feige with a smile.
Director Joe Johnston, who is finishing up The Wolfman, will join the production full time in October with a targeted June 2010 start-up. But what about an actor for the title role?
“If we make any announcements before October, I’ll be surprised,” he said. “But we might. We’re always looking.”
As far as The Avengers go, Feige was asked if the Skrulls would be the enemy that the superhero dream-team will be put up against.
“Uh, we do own the rights to those characters,” said a grinning Feige as he walked away.
