Stan Lee on Which Marvel Movies Are Next
Posted 12.30.09 by Ryan
Marvel Entertainment has an impressive slate of upcoming movies, with Iron Man 2 opening in 2010, Thor and First Avenger: Captain America in 2011, and The Avengers in 2012. But what movies will Marvel make after that? MTV asked Stan Lee, the 87-year-old co-creator of the comic books, which characters will be next to receive their own movie.
The funny thing is, I think all of them will come to the screen sooner or later because they're always looking for new properties, and Marvel has more than anybody. Doctor Strange I'm sure will be out. You probably know they're working on Ant-Man now. Every one of the Marvel characters, there's somebody working on it. Somebody is trying to put together a story that will work. It's just a matter of time — they can only do so many a year. You don't want to flood the market.
I'm sure [they'll do] The Black Panther, eventually. If they ever want to do a war story, we have Sgt. Fury. We already have Colonel Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. who pops up in so many of these. In fact, there might one day be a S.H.I.E.L.D. movie. It's just a matter of them sitting down and saying, "What haven't we done yet?"
This has got to be good news for Marvel fans, with every single character getting his own movie. With that output, it looks like a pretty wise, albeit expensive, move for Disney to have purchased Marvel.
