Even though Marvel Studios is two weeks away from releasing Thor and over three months away from dropping Captain America: The First Avenger into theaters, the comic company is so confident in its summer superheroes — played by Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans respectively — that it is already planning blockbuster sequels for each.
In a new interview with Disney’s quarterly magazine D23: The Official Disney Fan Club, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed his future plans for both Thor and Captain America:
“Thor will go off into a new adventure, and Captain America will continue to explore the modern world in another film of his own. We hope that holds true for the characters appearing in that film — Black Widow, Hawkeye, and the spy organization, S.H.I.E.L.D. —all of whom are more than worthy and capable of carrying their own films. And, we’ve got a lot of other characters we’re prepping and getting ready for film debuts: the world of martial arts, these great cosmic space fantasies, Dr. Strange, and the magic side of the Marvel Universe. There are many, many stories to be mined.”
