One sequel, one new franchise...
Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige told IGN that the studio's plan of "one sequel, one new character" in terms of their film release schedule could be the plan moving forward. The CEO spot with the site and said that they're trying to keep new characters in the mix with their established franchises.
"[Guardians of the Galaxy] fulfilled our desire to do something different," Feige said, "to start producing, each year, a film that was the sequel to a pre-existing, successful franchise and do something new. We're doing that next year with Age of Ultron, with Ant-Man, and hope to maybe continue that model in the coming years."
Feige was clear to say, however, that they wouldn't be beholden to such a schedule and would break it if necessary, adding, "I don't know that we'll keep to [that model] every year, but what we're doing this year and what we're doing next year is: existing franchise, new franchise, existing franchise, new franchise. So I think it would be fun to continue that sort of thing. I don't know that we will [do that] all the time, but as a general model, I think that would be fun."
