Speaking to IGN, Marvel Studios present Kevin Feige admitted that the studio have noticed the fan-demand for a Captain Marvel film and Black Panther film, but fell short of actually promising to deliver.

“They’re both characters that we like, that development work has been done, it’s continuing to be done on, and certainly it’s the question I get asked more than anything else, more than Iron Man 4, more than Avengers 3.

“That’s sort of the first time that’s really happened to us,” he added, “so I think that makes a difference.

“I think that’s something we have to pay attention to… I’ve always said we have our plan, and it’s served us very well, and there hasn’t been anything that has managed to deviate or change from that based on an opinion, because opinions online change and they alter, and they are based on limited information they have to what’s going on behind the scenes, but in this particular case I think it is a groundswell, and I think it means something substantial.”

Come on then, Kevin – do something about it!
