Marvel Studios has managed to keep their Avengers 4 and after plans as confidential as possible but Black Panther producer Nate Moore is excited about what’s coming next. Though this was quite possibly supposed be top secret. Not to mention SPOILER ALERT!
After the record breaker performance of Avengers: Infinity War, Everyone even remotely related to the studio are being hushed in regards to their upcoming efforts with Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well, given no one really loves spoilers, it’s for the betterment of everyone. Avengers 4 set for release in May 2019, it would be the first movie of Marvel’s Phase 4. The new phase would be loaded with new ideas and whole new set of characters, as Moore revealed in an interview to comicbook.com
So what did he spill?
“Oh, there are some ideas [for Phase Four],” Moore said. “I think without giving anything away, we’re at the point now with Marvel as a company looking for what happens post-Avengers 4, and there are a lot of ideas on the table that are really exciting. Some are characters you’ve met before, some are wholly new characters. And now, it’s just for us internal getting our ducks in a row and deciding who’s doing what and when these franchises will end up in sort of the larger timeline. So there are things I’m working on, but as a bigger question, we’re just trying to figure out what happens post Phase three.”
While we have clear confirmation of just two Marvel movies viz. Spider-Man: Homecoming’s sequel and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Marvel Studios’ mastermind Kevin Feige has previously mentioned that the popular cosmic hero Nova has “immediate potential” to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“I think it’s gonna be pretty close to the vest,” Moore said. “I can’t imagine us doing anything before Avengers 4 is out in the world. We really want to complete that storytelling before we start talking about what’s next. And again, knowing what Joe [Russo] and Anthony [Russo] have in store I think is really exciting. So hopefully audiences can come to that and watch that film on its own terms and then hopefully shortly after that we can talk about where we think we can go.”
Nate Moore was amazing with his work as executive producer on Black Panther. He was indeed burdened with making an expansive, self-contained film about a character who would have a shocking fate only three months after his self-titled film released.
“We knew pretty early on,” Moore said of Black Panther’s Avengers: Infinity War fate. “So, I was fortunate enough to be in those early writers rooms with Chris [Markus] and Steve [McFeely] and Joe [Russo] and Anthony [Russo] when they were breaking Infinity War and Avengers 4, so I knew what was coming and knew that they had a really good reason for choosing the characters they did. I think it was probably a bigger shock honestly for Ryan Coogler, but here’s the good news, I think we were able to deliver a film that stands on its own and that carves out a very special place in the Marvel universe.”
While Moore very much hopes Coogler returns though not official yet but is for inevitable Black Panther sequel. Nate also enthusiastic about the idea of an all-female film based on those characters introduced in Wakanda.
“It’s definitely possible,” Moore said. “It’s all about what is the best idea. And I think you sort of put your finger on it. I think the female characters in Black Panther are so resonant and do so well in their own right. They make their own decision, they move the story forward. Nakia saves Wakanda. I think there are ways to tell stories with them separately. I think there are ways to continue their story in sort of Black Panther 2 and beyond. So there’s a lot of different ways to slice it. It’s just, what is the story that we have to tell that feels undeniable? I’m hesitant to say what comes first, but I do know there are ideas that I could service both frankly.”
