Feige talks Thanos and Avengers

Phase 2 in effect!

Marvel Uber Producer Kevin Fiege certainly has established the Marvel Movie Universe. So what are next for their franchises? In what Feige calls Phase 2 and Phase 3 he laid it out for MTV as to what’s in store with Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avengers, and where Thanos fits in. 

First up those Easter Eggs and teasers at the end of each film:

“There’s a great track record now about lobbing something in at the last moment to get the audience buzzing. Particularly when it came to Thanos, [we knew] that most people in that audience had no idea who that purple guy was — but they could clearly tell he was important, and knew if they asked the two or three people sitting next to them, somebody would know who he was.”
So why the big purple dude, Thanos?
“Clearly, there’s a purpose to us putting him in the end of that movie. We do have plans for him. I wouldn’t say we ever feel the need to rush anything one way or the other. We succeeded in Phase One because we stuck to our guns and stuck to the plan. That plan took place over many, many years and it ultimately paid off. I see Phase Two unfolding in the same way of us taking our time, us doing what’s right for each individual movie, while folding in elements that will not only build up to the culmination of Phase Two, but even Phase Three.”
So you heard it Maniacs, Marvel’s Phase 2 is in effect. Here is the release dates for the next slate of Marvel Films:

Iron Man 3 – May 3rd, 2013
Thor: The Dark World – November 8th, 2013
Captain America: The Winter Soldier – April 4th, 2014
Guardians of the Galaxy – August 1st, 2014

The Avengers 2 – May 1st, 2015

The take I'm getting from it is that it might not pay off with Thanos appearing as the main villain in Avengers 2 or GoTG. They intend to take it slow and have him appear now and then as the puppetmaster of evil events with others as his surrogates. Then at some point there will be a dramatic direct confrontation with the Death loving Titan.

Make Mine Marvel!

 Where the FRAK is another Hulk movie on that list?!

Joss proved that the Hulk could be amazing and Mark Ruffalo proved that he's awesome at playing him...

Interesting to hear that this might be more drawn out then previously believed.  I'm sure we'll be seeing Thanos in a more active role during Phase Two, but maybe as a puller of strings rather than a direct threat.  Then I guess they bring him in for the finale of Phase Three with The Infinity Gauntlet?  I can't help but wonder if it will be an Avengers movie, or a stand alone featuring the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, SHIELD and any other Marvel Movie Universe denizens which have been introduced at that point.

Hard to say, but always fun to speculate upon!

I think at the end of Cap 2 will be an after credits scene of ace fighter pilot Peter Quill chasing a UFO but the alien craft shoot's him down first. There's a flash of light and the pilot wakes up in a prison cell  with a walking talking Raccoon. Fade to black.

I figured all along that he would just be a puppetmaster of sorts for phase 2.  I would be willing to bet Mandrin is the main vilain for Avengers 2.  Thanos helping him by giving him the rings or something.  If they got Ben Kingsley to play him, I cant imagine it is just for one movie as a secondary type vilain.  With no more Iron Man movies promised Avengers 2 seems like the best bet for him.

What happened to Ant-Man?  I thought it was part of phase 2.  Did that change?

So what no Mark Gruffalo Hulk movie?

Antman is the only one without a release date so I wouldn't be surprised if it's either been dropped completely or pushed back to phase three.

More than the Hulk, I'd love to have a She-Hulk TV show. Do it as an action comedy about the zany adventures of a 6ft.-plus green super-strong lawyer. Find some tall WWE wrestler who can act well. Have her Jennifer Walters alter-ego played by some well known 5ft. nothing actress who would only have to guest star in the pilot before she is transformed.

So Iron Man1/2,Thor,,Incredible Hulk,Capt America,and Avengers were basically the first chapter in the overall saga. Iron Man 3,Thor 2, Capt America 2 GoG, and Avengers2 is the second half of the the story
