The two veteran Marvel scriptwriters Cinematic Universe, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who dealt almost exclusively with Marvel blockbuster scripts, confirmed that they took a break from the franchise but specified that they were ready to return in the future, in case we were the need.
“No, we went. At the moment we are not working for Marvel,” McFeely explained to the Los Angeles Times. Markus added: “First of all, you can’t increase the stakes”.
“Will we make a bigger movie? ” McFeely asks. And Christopher Markus replies: “We have written for every character in the franchise. It is up to us to let other people play with toys and recharge our batteries, develop other qualities and then come back, should the opportunity arise.”
“We love them, we’d love to come back when the need arises. But we’re not here at the moment. We’ve been there literally until the end of Endgame, it’s a long time.“
The scriptwriters will focus on AGBO, the studio they started with directors Anthony and Joe Russo, who directed films written by Markus and McFeely as Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are devoting themselves to the script of Electric State, which they hope will begin production in 2020. McFeely also spoke to the LA Times about the script on the Cambridge Analytica scandal, with filming planned in 2020, under the guidance of director David Gordon Green.
As for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, these days we talk about the possibility Taron Egerton for Wolverine, with the actor who would gladly play the role, and a possible role for Keanu Reeves in the franchise, also suggested by the Russo.
