Kevin Feige Talks Future Beyond ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ Possibly Adding X-Men and Fantastic Four

Just because Avengers: Infinity War could be the end, doesn’t mean it will be the end. In the film, Thanos seeks to collect the all-powerful Infinity Stones to bring forth balance within the universe. The Mad Titan suffered a great tragedy when he couldn’t save his home planet of Titan, and now he believes that if he is to save the universe, he will have to destroy it.

So it’s unclear what kind of future the founding Avengers have beyond Infinity War. However, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige clearly has a plan. In anticipation for the film, Feige is talking about the future of the studio and the effect the Fox and Disney merger could have on their plans for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. More on the story, below.

Roger Corman's Fantastic Four

Doomed! The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s The Fantastic Four
Official Website

Starring Roger Corman, Oley Sassoon, and Chris Gore
Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment
Not Rated | 85 minutes
Release Date: October 11, 2016 (VOD) | December 20, 2016 (DVD)

In 1986, German film producer Bernd Eichinger (The Neverending Story) purchased the motion picture rights to Marvel Comics’ first family of bickering cosmic superheroes, the Fantastic Four. Eichinger envisioned making a classy, big-budget adventure with funding from a major studio and the latest in cutting edge visual effects, but no studio was interested. He had until New Year’s Eve 1992 to get the film into production or his rights would revert back to Marvel.

‘Fantastic Four’ Trailer: Doctor Doom Has A New Look

Fantastic Four The Thing

This weekend saw three major trailers drop: first there was Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was then followed by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And now comes one for Fantastic Four.

Oddly enough, director Josh Trank was supposed to make an appearance on the final day of Star Wars Celebration to talk about his secret spinoff film, but attendees were told he fell ill, and could not make it. Now we can’t be certain if this is true, but a trailer dropping on the same day he was scheduled to make an appearance is quite suspect. Whatever the reason, we are getting a brand new trailer for Fantastic Four, which gives us a little more backstory on our four heroes — Mr. Fantastic (Miles Teller), Invisible Woman (Kate Mara), Human Torch (Michael B. Jordan), and The Thing (Jamie Bell) — as well as the villain, Doctor Doom (Tobey Kebbell). Hit the jump to check it out.

The Fantastic Four movie 2015 team

Fox has released the teaser trailer for their re-imagined The Fantastic Four.

Watch it here below!

[Update – you can now watch the trailer with filmmaker video commentary HERE; also, see the teaser poster and images from the film added here below.]

The reboot stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell and is directed by Josh Trank. The story leading up to this has been a production that seeks to completely make over the fabled superheroes and go a little outside of the box when it comes to portraying the team on screen. This of course met the criticism of fans who cherish the long running comic series.

Fantastic Four

Earlier today, we talked about how the teaser trailer for The Fantastic Four is coming soon and how it will reportedly show a gritty take for Fox’s reboot of the franchise from director Josh Trank (Chronicle) and screenwriters Simon Kinberg and Jeremy Slater (X-Men: Days of Future Past). But while the film hits theaters this Summer, we’ve yet to see a drop of official footage or any stills from the production, which Trank recently said in an interview with Collider was a conscious decision.

But now, Collider has revealed the first behind-the-scenes look at the production for The Fantastic Four. One photo is of Trank on set, while the other is Kinberg with star Michael B. Jordan in his Human Torch suit.

‘The Fantastic Four’ Teaser Trailer Details; Josh Trank’s Reboot Reportedly ‘Gritty’

Fantastic Four

[Update 1/27/2014: The trailer has been released – watch it HERE.]

The teaser trailer for The Fantastic Four, Fox’s reboot of the Marvel property, will reportedly be attached to UK screenings of comic book movie Kingsman: The Secret Service starting this weekend, and hopefully officially online soon after.

Simon Kinberg, one of the film’s screenwriters, had said last year that the upcoming Josh Trank-directed film would be “a more realistic” and “a more gritty, grounded telling” of the FF story, as opposed to Fox’s first time around with the Marvel superhero team in Fantastic Four (2005) and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007).

Now comes reports that the teaser will reveal a “fast and gritty” flick that greatly differs from its predecessors.

Fox Sets Release Dates For ‘Fantastic Four’ & ‘Wolverine’ Sequels, Untitled Marvel Movie Among Others

The Wolverine Hugh Jackman Image Header

20th Century Fox never lets a little thing like their upcoming films having not actually gone into production yet stop them from setting release dates. That’s common practice for most studios these days, but Fox was one of the earliest pioneers of that practice, and for better or worse the filmmakers working under them have had to adapt or hit the bricks. Nothing personal, just business.

In keeping with that fine tradition, the studio has recently announced a slew of new dates for some of the biggest projects on their production slate for the coming years. Even though the long-in-development Fantastic Four reboot helmed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) still hasn’t began shooting, its hypothetical sequel already has a release date set for July 14, 2017. Fox is also continuing to exploit their other profitable Marvel properties with another Wolverine sequel debuting on March 3, 2017 (with James Mangold, director of last year’s terrific The Wolverine, returning), and a mysterious Marvel feature set for July 13, 2018.

Jack Kirby Collage

Today marks the birthday of one of the greatest, most influential, and innovative comic book artists of all time, the late Jack Kirby, responsible for creating and co-creating some of comicdom’s most well known and gold standard characters in the history of the genre – Captain America, The Hulk, The Fantastic Four, and The X-Men, to name a few.

The New York Times, who had written about Kirby 10 years after his death on February 1994, by which time he had amassed a portfolio of work almost tantamount to the works of Picasso or Michelangelo in his respective field, summed up the style of the man’s art this way:
