"“As you know as a fan, there’s a tremendous amount of potential and a tremendous amount of additional characters and storylines and groups of characters that we’re going to keep playing with. And again, that’s a testament to Marvel and to the amount of storylines and characters and amazing, amazing runs that have been in the Marvel comics.”"

Although he didn’t go into specifics, he stated that all kinds of films are on the table, including standalones, team-ups and ensembles. Some may think it would be difficult to map out so many projects. However, according to Feige, the studios’ plans for the next several years are relatively set:

"“I don’t think we’ll be announcing five or six years, but we know sort of where we want to head in the next five or six years.”"
