‘Thor,’ ‘Captain America’ and ‘Fast and Furious’ Sequels Confirmed

It’s all about sequels these days, and if you thought Marvel would launch two new franchises this year (Thor and Captain America) without counting on continuing them with new adventures in the coming years, then you don’t know Marvel … or Hollywood. The Avengers will hit theaters in 2012, and Iron Man 3 is already in the works for 2013. So, where does that leave Thor and Captain America?

Thor and Fast Five

In an interview with Disney’s D23 magazine (via IGN), Marvel chief Kevin Feige admits that the plan is to use this year’s Thor and Captain America movies to not only lead in to The Avengers, but also to help launch their own solo franchises. He notes, "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."

Meanwhile, while we’re talking sequels, it looks like those dangerous underground racers from the Fast and Furious franchise aren’t going away anytime soon. With Fast Five arriving in theaters later this month, The Hollywood Reporter tells us that Universal has signed Chris Morgan (screenwriter behind the third, fourth and fifth installments) to write Fast Six for the studio. No confirmation yet on which stars will be returning (if any), but fans of the franchise might like to know that it’s staying put for now.
