Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige offered his first hint about whether Marvel shows will get a second season or not.
Feige spoke at a virtual global press conference over the weekend for “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.” When asked about whether there would be a second season, he hinted it’s possible — but unlikely.
“It’s a funny question, and it’s one that we obviously get asked much more in television because people expect it to be like what people know before,” Feige said.
- “We really did approach it like we do the movies, which is — ‘We better make this great or we won’t be able to do another one.’”
- “If we were able to do another one, there are certainly ideas,” he said.
Feige said future projects “will go back and forth between the Disney+ series and the Marvel Studios features,” he said. He mentioned the connection between “WandaVision” and “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” as an example.
- “So where characters show up and how sometimes will be in a direct season too sometimes we’ll be in a feature and then into an additional season,” he said.
- Feige said “we’re just not going to say” what that plan looks like, though.
Feige previously said new Disney+ shows like “Loki,” “WandaVision,” “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” and “Hawkeye” will lead into future Marvel movies, as I wrote about for the Deseret News.
- “These episodes will intersect with the movies in a very big way,” Feige told Variety. “It’s a totally new form of storytelling that we get to play with and explore.”
- He said, in general, future Marvel shows will have “six episodes, eight episodes (or) 10 episodes with the actors from the films playing their characters,” Feige said. “They’ll be changing, evolving, growing in those event series and then those changes will be reflected in their next film appearances.”
