Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, recently gave an interview to the internet, and said a very little about a whole lot.

The L.A. Times recently hosted Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, in an online chat. Users asked him about upcoming and current productions, and while he didn't reveal any big spoilers, Feige did give a heads-up on smaller details and upcoming projects. In terms of in-movie detail, expect to see Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man in a new suit in The Avengers. Feige joshed, "Joss [Whedon, director of The Avengers] would kill me if I gave anything away," but then went on to say the suit would continue to evolve. In Thor, audiences will see what Feige relays as, "the best romantic chemistry in a Marvel movie" between Natalie Portman and Chris Hemsworth. Apologies there to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner (Daredevil).

Feige also touched on upcoming projects, but did so very cautiously. He said Edgar Wright's (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) Ant-Man was going to be one of the four films "tak[ing] up the next year of [his] life" (the other three being The Avengers, The Runaways, and Iron Man 3). When asked about the Punisher, Feige confirmed "he's back in the house," but neglected to specify whether he was in the movie room, or the TV room, or just languishing in the basement.

Most disappointing was Feige's passive consent that either Marvel's not developing any female superhero projects, or that they're under real tight wraps. When a fan asked if we'd see any non-Black Widow women under the Marvel banner anytime soon, Feige evaded, "I love female heroes too and would love to bring many more to the big screen in the future."

You think when he said, "many," he meant, "any?"
