Kevin Feige is always good for a scoop or two when he feels like talking -- he is, after all, the president of Marvel Studios and as such is the master of many of fandom's most highly anticipated movies. And he apparently was in the mood to gab a bit in a recent interview.
While talking to SFX Magazine (and as relayed by various outlets this morning), Feige essentially confirmed the line-up of the Avengers movie that will eventually result from the current crop of standalone Marvel films.
"My only concern is that when we launch a franchise -- whichever character's franchise that may be -- it should stand on its own two feet," he says. "So by the time The Avengers comes in 2012, it's not just a team superhero movie with a bunch of characters with powers. It's three people -- four including the Hulk; five including Nick Fury -- who you've seen before in other movies, coming together for the very first time."
That statement would seem to verify what every first-year fanboy has long suspected -- that the core team will include Iron Man, Thor and Captain America, all of whom will have had movies out by the time The Avengers is released. And the inclusion of the Hulk -- a founding member in the comics too -- has been hoped for by fans as well. Feige even allows for the possibility that Edward Norton might return as Bruce Banner, despite the actor's famous tussle with the studio over the Incredible Hulk film.
