    Schedule right now is:

    2010 Iron Man II
    2011 Thor, Captain America
    2012 Avengers, plus one secret movie

That's disappointing. They're focusing on making a tiny number of incredibly expensive "tentpole" features, instead of diversifying into a larger number of good smaller films. Marvel's properties are vast. Things like Power Man & Iron Fist and the Man Thing could be brought to the screen in spectacular fashion very inexpensively. I thought the Ant Man feature was a great idea. "Tentpole" features centered around spectacle become such big money risks that they develop Bigger, Dumber, Louder Syndrome, unless guided by the hand of a filmmaker with enough pull to get his way, which doesn't often happen.
