article imageMarvel has a film release strategy until 2021

Marvel Studios like to plan for the long haul. According to President Kevin Feige they are already planning a strategy for releases up to 2021.
Marvel Studios big boss Kevin Feige said in an interview with WIRED, that back in 2006 they had already planned the strategy for 2015, and it has all gone according to plan so far. "I could arguably say what we're planning for the year 2021. Will that happen? I don't know. But what we planned for 2015 in 2006 is happening."
Just yesterday, the sequel to Thor — The Dark World — saw its theatrical trailer release. Next in the assembly line is the sequel for Captain America, subtitled The Winter Soldier. But there are still two more movies cooking at the moment for Phase 2 (as Marvel likes to split into different phases, all marked by the release of a new installment of the Avengers series). Next year Guardians of the Galaxy will hit screens and a year later the recently announced Avengers: Age of Ultron will mark the closing of the Phase 2.
"Five years ago, looking at our plan, we knew that if Avengers was going to work, the movies had to stand alone," Feige said. "Now we have to prove to the studio that we're more than just these five characters, these five franchises."
In addition, if what Feige says is going to happen, it is time for more story lines to be filmed outside of the top five. Rumors point towards a collection of B-level characters from the super-deep Marvel Encyclopedia like Dr. Strange, Black Panther and the long-gestating Ant-Man movie.
The fact that Marvel has come up with so many different and successful ways to assemble characters on the silver screen that a priori do not have the general viewers appeal shows their commitment to make the comic book movie genre one of its own.
Will this current trend keep up further in the future than 2021? We shall see, but if DC Comics — Marvel’s main competitor — does not stand up to them; the House of Hulk might lose their freshness due to lack of competition.
