A trilogy? Maybe. Or maybe just a sequel to the Avengers.Marik2 said:Well I mean I dont see how they can make a 2nd thor and captain america after the avengers.FrequentFlyer said:Well, let's see... there's a Deadpool film coming in 2014, an Ant-Man film, a Thor 2, Captain America 2, and an Iron Man 3, so....nope. There's no end to this epic journey. They're bound to make an Avengers 2 as well, if only to incorporate other characters (like Henry Pym and Janet van Dyne, Ant-Man and the Wasp respectively).Marik2 said:So is this gonna be the last big marvel movie?
Or are they gonna make a trilogy for the avenger films?
I mean how is it gonna work?
I honestly have no clue, but it's going be quite interesting to watch. I mean, no production team has ever attempted this before, especially with a gamble as big as introducing obscure comic book superheroes (and by 'obscure' I mean ones that had never been established before in film and mass media, like Superman/Batman/Spiderman etc). This reach of continuity spanning across a series of films is unprecedented by any other attempt or franchise (even DC and Warner Bros.), so it's really anything goes to how they choose to go about adapting parts of Marvel universe to film.
If I had to guess, Thor 2 and Captain America 2 will again deal with their own story-lines: Thor's rightful place in Asgard as oppose to Midgard, and I'm certain they'll use some arc from some series of issues to continue Captain America's single story. I'm sure they'll do the same with Iron Man 3.
Their individual story lines didn't cease to exist in the comic books when The Avengers appeared in 1963, just as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, etc. continued to have their own issues after The Justice League was formed.
I imagine Ant-Man will introduce both Henry Pym and Janet van Dyne. If they intend to continue the Avengers franchise, these characters will be incorporated into that project. I also remember seeing easter eggs in iron Man 2, where Tony Stark sat before a monitor indicating the location of Wakanda as well as Atlantis, so we might see the Black Panther and Sub-Mariner in future films.
Then, of course, there's (rebooted) Spider-Man, who joined the Avengers a time or two, and then Deadpool. So I really have no substantial evidence to how this will all go down, but I hope Marvel/Disney/Paramount has and will continue to put in the creativity, time and effort that is needed to see that all of these films are successfully executed.
The last thing we need to be subjected to is another Green Lantern. Or X-Men: Origins. Or Daredevil. Or Fantastic four (although, I hear a third film is in talks).
Man, I sure hope they do I mean, if only to better flesh out the universe and character dynamic. But I see where it all could be pointless, considering their more obscure character prominence.Ragsnstitches said:Don't want to burst bubbles yet, but I figure they won't be adding Antman or wasp... not exactly the shining stars of Marvel.
But then again... could surprise me.
Plus, no one wants to see these films turn into a three-ring circus, which is why I'm not all bent out of shape that someone like Wolverine or the Fantastic Four will never appear.
