The sequel to the highly successful animated film "Big Hero 6" has just been confirmed. In an interview, Marvel executive producer Stan Lee revealed that they will be working on "Big Hero 7" after "Ant-Man," "Doctor Strange" and the "Black Panther."
As previously reported by Science Fiction, Stan Lee created quite a buzz when he announced that Marvel is doing a "Big Hero 6" sequel.
"After ‘Ant-Man,’ we’re going to start playing around with Doctor Strange, the Black Panther, the Inhumans, and then we have to come back for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2,' ‘Big Hero 6,' 'The Avengers,' 'Captain America,'" he told Toronto Sun.
"I don’t even know how they decide what to do next, because every one of them is so exciting and the public is waiting for them."
After hitting box-office earnings - with over $651 million on worldwide sales and named 2014's highest grossing animated movie - it seems that "Big Hero 6" sequel is an anticipated move for Marvel.
It has long been rumored that, Tadashi, as a great plot twist on the upcoming sequel, will be introduced as a main villain in the next film.
Jon Negroni of Moviepilot predicts that the next film, "Big Hero 7" will center on Tadashi and how it will be revealed that he is the true villain in the film.
"I’m calling it right now. He’ll be a villain of sorts in the sequel, inevitably joining the team fully to add that number (after all, Big Hero 6 2 is just weird branding)," he said.
While some fans may argue that Tadashi died in an explosion in "Big Hero 6," Negroni was quick to point out that there was actually no body and everyone just assumed that he died in a fire.
"The inclusion of a fire is tantamount to how this theory works, where do you think it came from? Most likely, one of the inventions, and no one else apparently died from its flames," he said.
"I believe this invention had to do with nuclear energy. Why? Because 'Big Hero 6' (and Disney) is purposefully setting up Tadashi to be Sunfire, one of the original members of the first 'Big Hero 6' team and a prominent character in the Marvel universe," he added.
