It’s no surprise that Disney has plans to milk the hell out of the Marvel and Star Wars properties. It’s not a bad thing since they’re giving fans what they want while also raking in the cash. It looks like Disney CEO Bob Iger has plans to keep on producing Marvel and Star Wars films forever.

For Star Wars, there’s the upcoming Rogue One film along with the rest of the Star Wars trilogy starring Daisy Ridley as Rey and John Boyega as Finn. We also have a Han Solo standalone film in 2018.

“There are five Star Wars films – four more with Episode VII: The Force Awakens – that are in varying stages of development and production,” Iger told Newsbeat¬†last month. “There will be more after that, I don’t know how many, I don’t know how often.”

The Marvel film universe is filled with many characters. We have Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and many more. That’s plenty of material for Disney to keep on making Marvel films for a while.

“Marvel, you’re dealing with thousands and thousands of characters – that will go on forever,” says Iger.

There’s no sign of slowing down for these films.

“No, I don’t think they’re getting weary,” says Iger. “But I think we keep raising the bar in terms of telling stories that bring them back, that excite them, that make it feel new and that is what we do for a living.”
