Iron Man 3 scribe Drew Pearce recently sat down with SciFiNow and expressed his excitement about Marvel's upcoming Phase 2. He also discussed the possibility of a crossover/shared universes project at DC.
Here he talks about the next wave of projects coming from Marvel and if he is going to be involved.
"This next phase has such a good bunch of directors, from the Russos, who by all accounts have knocked it out the park with Captain America 2 - I've seldom heard buzz from the editing room as good as that movie. The Avengers 2 will be Joss Whedon's baby, and reaction to James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy has been brilliant. Even after the tough journey of two and half years making Iron Man 3 as good as it can be, I don't just have respect for Marvel as unit; I'm honored for my time there, and I'm constantly talking to them about what we do next."
He goes on to discuss the possibility of DC following the same model as Marvel.
"There's a lot of talk about whether Warner are following the Marvel model, but I think they're just following The Dark Knight model and using to branch out, character by character. It's a smart move that they're not trying to do Justice League and they're going to bring Batman and Superman together their next movie instead. I think DC are still doing their thing, I don't think it's particularly derivative of Marvel. There's definitely more of a sense of 'Marvel Studios did this well, maybe we should take care to join up our part of the the Marvel universe' at Fox. It's trickier because they're not coming from as clear a place as Marvel was, because they already have a bunch of continuity issues, though I'm sure X-Men: Days of Future Past is going to clean that up. I'm sure in Fantastic Four there will be a sense that it's the same world as the mutants exist in."
