Punisher, Ghost Rider, Blade:
As recently revealed, these characters have reverted back to Marvel after being on loan to other studios. “So Punisher, Ghost Rider, … Blade, all those characters are back,” Feige says. “They all have potential, but I think we need to find the right time.” In other words, don't expect them to be part of Phase Three.
Feige shoots down those Planet Hulk rumors -- the ones that had already been shot down elsewhere -- while also saying that while there is no solo Hulk movie in the works yet, “Mark [Ruffalo] could stand in his own movie. … We’re talking about it. We’re excited to sit down and go, ‘What is a stand-alone Hulk movie?’”
The Inhumans had been floated by Feige in the past as a possible Phase Two team movie, though the slot they would've filled seems to have been taken by Guardians of the Galaxy. But he still seems hopeful that those wacky moon-dwellers might make it to the big screen eventually.
“… all the craziness that comes with Inhumans, we’ve done in the other movies already,” Feige says. “But this would have some of the social drama that we haven’t really done yet. [Fox’s] X-Men, obviously, has been touching on that stuff for a while.”
This Brian K. Vaughn comic was slated for a 2011 production start before being delayed indefinitely. Could it still happen?
“It’s a matter of where it fits,” Feige says. “The way the business is working now, you either have really inexpensive, sort of surprise movies that can come out and be hits, but don’t cost much. Or you have the big giant summer blockbusters that really swing for the fences. Right now, we’re just swinging for the fences every time. Runaways sort of falls in between those, in a way. We just haven’t found where or how to do it… right now.”
Feige seems inclined to not make a Marvel Zombies movie at the moment. “Are you going to draw figures in chalk with your 3-year-old with Hulk eating someone? Or Captain America with his brains coming out of the top of his head? Probably not,” Feige says. (Though I would point out that the first Minimates figures I ever bought for my son were Marvel Zombies. He was about one-year-old at the time. But that's just me.)
Still, you know, this is Marvel Studios. I wouldn't put it past them to zombify things if even with a standalone film at some point…
