Thor: Ragnarok - Kevin Feige Addresses Sif's Absence

Behind him was Tessa Thompson and several other actresses who've appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and they had a request: their own Avengers movie.

Other movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe expected to hit the theaters soon includes Thor: Ragnarok on November 2, 2017, Black Panther on February 16, 2018, Avengers: Infinity War on May 4, 2018, Ant-Man and the Wasp on July 6, 2018, Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019, the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 5, 2019, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in 2020.

Thor and The Hulk will share the spotlight in "Ragnarok" which sees them fight their way out of a massive battle arena.

"It was a pretty incredible moment to be somewhere and have your shoulder get taped and turn around every female hero we have is standing there going, 'How about it?'" Feige replied.

"He [Banner] says, 'it's different this time, usually it feels like we both have a hand on the wheel, but this time he was driving and I was locked in the trunk'". Instead I think Feige and Marvel have a clear view of what they want to do with the movies moving forward but I do suspect it will be something completely different and while I don't expect it to deviate from their winning formula too much, I do expect there to be a lot interconnected story-telling and more character-focused movies instead. "The Fevengers!" he jokingly interjected.

Once the laughs died down, Thompson continued.

"There's a precedent for it in the comics, right?" Will we get a Lady Liberators movie in or before the year 2030, or is this yet another way for Feige to feign interest in more and better female representation in his movies?

Now Feige makes it sound like Marvel is really focusing on simply wrapping up their current cinematic universe without planning anything for the future, which is unlikely for the deeply methodical producer. "Lady Liberators, deep cut!"

Another supporting factor suggesting the possible death of a key member in the film is that few of the actors like Chris Evans (Captain America) and Robert Downey Jr.(Tony Stark) are nearing the end of their contract with MCU after Avengers 4.
