One of the most visually striking films in the Marvel catalog is the Guardians of the Galaxy. It has a feel that is different from anything that Marvel has made before. It also aesthetically introduced us to the cosmic side of the MCU. Although the Guardians are about to get a sequel, the movie that has everyone talking is Thor: Ragnarok. According to early reports, Taika Waititi’s vision for Thor: Ragnarok will surpass everything that has come before it in the MCU.
In an interview with Heroic Hollywood, Marvel Chief Kevin Feige says that Thor: Ragnarok is going to be less like Guardians than most people think:
“Well, I think I would say it’s, and as people see more of Ragnarok, it’s a Taika tone more than a Guardians tone. He’s really adding a unique point of view to it, but certainly the success of Guardians just boosted our confidence to continue to go in new, fun, weird directions, and I think that led to Doctor Strange and certainly, ultimately, leads to the things we’re doing in Infinity War.
You know we did the comic books as you well know do all sorts of fun, mind-bending, trippy storylines that you really hadn’t seen in any movies until we started scratching that surface with Thor and a little bit more in Avengers. A little bit in the quantum realm of Ant-Man. It was really Guardians and then Strange and now Guardians 2 which is saying, ‘Okay, the audience is gonna stay with us on this.’ Why even attempt to make a movie out of the Infinity Gauntlet if you can’t really do a lot of the crazy things that happen in that Jim Starlin imagination.”
Feige also took a few minutes to talk about the upcoming Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet and the (as of yet) untitled Avengers 4. In an interview with Cinema Blend, Feige says that each of the Avengers films although are a two-part series are “two very different movies”. He went on to say that the title for the Avengers 4 hasn’t been revealed, because the title is a big spoiler for Avengers: Infinity War.
Thor: Ragnarok opens worldwide in November, with Avengers: Infinity War hitting theaters on May 2018.
