Man, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige wasn’t kidding when he said Marvel had mapped out their Marvel Cinematic Universe up through 2028.

Iron Man 3
As the Marvel-verse expands, so too does the frequent speculation about what movies will come next, which characters will return and how they'll be incorporated. But undoubtedly, the highest paid actor in Hollywood, Robert Downey Jr., can be credited with much of the comic studio's success. Frankly, if it weren't for "Iron Man" not only being successful, but become a major franchise in its own right, Marvel likely wouldn't be where they are today. But still, he's coy about whether or not "Iron Man 4" will happen.

"Here we are now, 14 years since the first Marvel movie I worked on. At that point it had been eight years and for about those eight years people had been asking ‘How much longer gonna last?’ ‘When are people gonna get tired of these movies?' And my answer always was ‘People only get tired if a whole slew of terrible ones come out’. And it was our job to make sure that doesn’t happen," Marvel honco Kevin Feige said last week. "If there are other people out there interested in that not happening as well, I’m all for it!" And while there have been patchy superhero movies (see Sony's "The Amazing Spider-Man" for example), for Marvel at least, they've kept the quality level mostly consistent, so why not continue?

The Amazing Spider-Man
Though they've been made since the very beginning of the medium, studios are still learning how to craft sequels. Follow-ups used to be frowned upon, perceived as nakedly commercial tactics that frequently didn't involve the participants of the originals. Then they became elaborate, ongoing serialized stories, ones where filmmakers were permitted to present a full saga in chapters. And now, “franchises” have become something else, a lifeblood of Hollywood, one that has flummoxed Sony in regards to the “Spider-Man” movies.

Batman Vs. Superman Ben Affleck Batman
While Kevin Feige has enough to talk about when it comes to the forthcoming "Guardians Of The Galaxy," it seems much of his press time of late has been spent explaining what the heck has been going on with "Ant-Man." And then over his shoulder are his rivals at D.C. Comics who coming hard in 2016 with "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice." But Feige feels no ill toward his fellow purveyors of comic book cinema, and he credits the success they've achieved so far.

It would seem that as Kevin Feige continues on the promotional run for "Guardians Of The Galaxy," it has also turned into the "Ant-Man" apology and don't-worry-it's-gonna-be-good-tour as well. Earlier this week, Feige stood up for the new choice of director Peyton Reed, and said the upcoming movie will be the "best version" possible.

Peyton Reed, Ant-Man
It's now a year until "Ant-Man" rolls into theatres nationwide, and so begins Marvel's long campaign of winning over fanboys still not pleased that Edgar Wright, who had been with the project for years, was forced to bow out after creative clashes with the studio. And that's not all, as Marvel will also have to convince the die hard faithful that Peyton Reed, primarily known for comedies like "Bring It On" and "Yes Man," is the right guy to sit in the saddle and see the movie through. Well, there has been no better advocate and visionary for Marvel movies than Kevin Feige, and he's pumped about the Reed and what that means for "Ant-Man."

Big Hero 6, skip
Unclear what “Big Hero 6” is other than an upcoming Disney animated film? Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, “Big Hero 6” is an action-packed comedy-adventure with comic-book like visuals and action. So it’s the first real Marvel/Disney collaboration—synergy—but it still sounds very much like a Disney project first and foremost. One can only assume that more corporate collaborations are to come. Imagine a day when Disney redoes the “Iron Man” franchise only in animated form. It could totally happen.

Marvel Characters That Could Be Movie
What people forget is that while the WB flexes their muscle, Marvel still has a ridiculously untapped listing of characters, both over at Disney as well as other studios like Fox, Universal and Sony.Marvel’s always going to outnumber and outmuscle them in some ways. The WB can only work on making their movies successful on their own terms.

The drama around Marvel’s “Ant-Man” has finally settled. Edgar Wright has moved on, Peyton Reed is the new director and “Anchorman” filmmaker Adam McKay is going to pen the rewrite (though c’mon people, no one’s going to leak Wright and Joe Cornish’s draft? That’s something everyone wants to read). What’s left other than to see the film next summer? Well, more details obviously since the Internets can’t resist revealing everything about a movie. Some spoilers below obviously.
