Marvel Movies To Go On Forever, More Star Wars Movies Coming According To Disney Chairman



If you were worried that Disney would stop cashing in on two of the biggest movie franchises in history any time soon, rest assured, they won't. You'll continue to get your Marvel and Star Wars fix not just for now - but forever.

We know there are certain planned films for the next five years, including a Han Solo spinoff and Episodes VIII and IX. The plans extend beyond those announced films, according to Disney chairman Bob Iger. "There will be more after that, I don't know how many, I don't know how often," Iger tells Newsbeat.

The Marvel Studios and they're continued production beyond the massive slate from now until 2019 won't be slowing down either. "Marvel, you're dealing with thousands and thousands of characters - that will go on forever," says Bob Iger.

There certainly is a wealth of characters to draw upon for the future of the Marvel Universe.

With Infinity War likely serving as the end of the Avengers era we've come to know, what characters would you like to see carry the Marvel Cinematic Universe going forward?

    Forever's a long time. Maybe we'll be seeing SW 20 & Marvel phase 23 when Jesus returns.

    If you have a formula that has been proven to work and make you successful, why would you stop? If DC's formula works, I'm sure they would like to make movies for as long as possible. Common sense here folks

    Obviously,as long as these movie franchises continue to make money and are in demand by fans,they'll keep on going with new characters and eventually new actors playing the already established cinematic universe characters(Iron Man,Thor,Han Solo,etc.).And it's a no-brainer that DC will follow this pattern too. It's a win/win for fans,as long as the Movie Studios respect the fans and stay loyal to most of the comic material or Star Wars universe and continue to make fun and entertaining movies for years to come.
