Speaking about the changes Marvel’s Cinematic Universe will be undergoing in the next 10 years, with Captain Marvel being part of it, here’s what Marvel Studios Chief Kevin Feige said
“I mean, all of the things you’ve seen throughout Phases 1 and 2 and now through much of 3, the new characters always are important going forward in driving, shaping the future of the MCU.”
“I think it would be amazing, another 10 years; another 20 films or so. We only focus on one step at a time, but that’s all about continuing to surprise with the stories, go unexpected places, continue to play with new, fresh, unexpected genres and then introduce characters that people might have heard of or a beloved big fan base like Captain Marvel or characters like Guardians where before we made that, people had never even heard of them.”
