Marvel Chief Kevin Feige Talks IRON MAN 3 and THE AVENGERS

Marvel’s chief updates fans on the upcoming movies.

Talking to Film Journal, Marvel chief Kevin Feige confirmed that ‘Iron Man 3’ will be focused solely on Tony Stark:

“Audiences will see that Tony Stark is going back into his own world. There will be acknowledgements to the events of ‘The Avengers’ and the character journey he took there, but he’s not going to be having tea with Thor and calling Nick Fury every five minutes”

Talking about ‘The Avengers’ and how the movie will balance out the character ensemble, Feige said:

“The first step in avoiding that was hiring Joss [Whedon, writer-director]. If you look at his body of work, he regularly writes for lots of characters. ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ may be called ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer,’ but it’s really an ensemble piece and none of the characters ever get lost in the spectacle of whatever is going on. The stuff we’ve shot [so far on THE AVENGERS] is cutting together spectacularly and it’s just the character interactions that we’ve done so far—we haven’t shot much of the action sequences yet. I think the end result is going to feel very, very satisfying.”
