Marvel Studios Producer and Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige confirmed a while back that both that the upcoming WandaVision series will tie into the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Mutiverse of Madness movie and also revealed last week that the Loki series would as well.
It appears as though that cross-pollination will continue as Feige told the Awards Chatter podcast at THR that the title characters of the three new superhero shows coming to Disney+ – Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk and Moon Knight – will ALL appear in the films after their debuts on the streaming service.
That suggests that Feige is seriosu about the connection between Marvel Studios series and films, so those hoping to pass on the TV shows and still keep up with the MCU may start finding it harder to not subscribe to the Disney+ service, which launches Tuesday, November 11.
In addition to that tidbit, Feige also went on to talk confront those who suggest that Marvel Studios never takes any risks, pointing out the one they’ll be taking next year with Eternals:
“It is a very big movie. It is a very expensive movie. And we are making it because we believe in (director Chloe Zhao’s) vision and we believe in what those characters can do and we believe we need to continue to grow and evolve and change and push our genre forward. That’s a risk if I’ve ever heard one.”
Feige was later questioned about his take on Academy Award-winning director Martin Scorsese’s comments about Marvel Movies being compared to theme park rides than cinema, to which he answers:
“I think that (argument) is not true. I think it’s unfortunate. I think myself and everyone who works on these movies loves cinema, loves movies, loves going to the movies, loves to watch a communal experience in a movie theater full of people, Feige explained, continuing: “Everybody has a different definition of cinema. Everybody has a different definition of art. Everybody has a different definition of risk. Some people don’t think it’s cinema. Everybody is entitled to their opinion. Everyone is entitled to repeat that opinion. Everyone is entitled to write op-eds about that opinion, and I look forward to what will happen next. But in the meantime, we’re going to keep making movies”
The next Marvel Studios releases arrive in 2020, with Black Widow and Eternals hitting theaters in May and November respectively and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier dropping on Disney+ sometime in the Fall.
