Marvel is in full Civil War promotional mode right now (if you’re on twitter, pick #teamcap or #teamironman to get a nice video response from one of the cast!), but that hasn’t stopped them from making a little news regarding their future films.
First up, thanks to the acquisition of Spider-Man and all of the characters in his sphere, EW reports that the Inhumans film will be delayed, though not outright cancelled:
“Since we made our initial phase three announcement, we added Spider-Man, which was a big joyous coup for us. We added Ant-Man and the Wasp, which was a big fun continuation of that story for us. Walt Disney Company has announced an Indiana Jones film for right around that same time. So I think it will shuffle off the current date that it’s on right now,” Feige said in an interview with Collider’s Haleigh Foutch. “How far down it shuffles, I’m not sure yet.”
How far will this can be kicked? Who’s to say? 2020 at the earliest. Perhaps Captain Marvel and Infinity War could be a testing of the waters for them with the concept on the big screen.
Additionally, Thor: Ragnarok looks to have a new leading lady, as Creed standout Tessa Thompson has joined the cast in an unnamed role. Per THR, Natalie Portman, who played Jane Foster, will not be returning. She joins Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Jaime Alexander, Cate Blanchett, and Mark Ruffalo in the Taika Waititi directed film.
