Marvel Studios komt dit jaar nog met Captain America: The Winter Soldier (27 maart) en Guardians of the Galaxy (14 augustus), het negende en tiende deel in de Marvel Cinematic Universe. Studiobaas Kevin Feige sprak over de strategie van het bedrijf. Hij vertelde:
“I think television is filling some of that now, in terms of bringing out more product. That’s certainly the idea with the Netflix shows. But I don’t know that we will necessarily say “Okay, we’re now moving strategically to three a year, now we’re moving to four a year.” What I think is more likely – if [knocks on wood-like table] the next group of movies work and people want to see additional stories – we’ll have too many franchises and you can’t do one of each franchise every two or three years. We’d have to move to three a year, but that would have to be a natural move if it were to occur. We’d have a [script] draft, we’d have a filmmaker, we’d have a character the audience wants to see – let’s slot in a place for a third one. Or a fourth one. But it’s hard enough to deliver two quality, hopefully bar-raising movies a year.”
Dit jaar wordt wel een wat spannender jaar van Marvel Studios. Captain America-film The First Avenger bracht minder op dan de andere films in Cinematic Universe en Guardians of the Galaxy lijkt een andere type film te worden, wat zomaar zou kunnen floppen.
