Marvel studios chief, Kevin Feige while speaking to students guest speaker at New York Film Academy said that the movie may have scary moments but cleared the air about it being an actual horror flick. “I wouldn’t necessarily say that’s a horror film, but … it’ll be a big MCU film with scary sequences in it.” He explained. “I mean, there are horrifying sequences in Raiders that I as a little kid would [cover my eyes] when their faces melted. Or Temple of Doom, of course, or Gremlins, or Poltergeist… These are the movies that invented the PG-13 rating, by the way. They were PG and then they were like, ‘We need another [rating].’ But that’s fun. It’s fun to be scared in that way, and not a horrific, torturous way, but a way that is legitimately scary — because Scott Derrickson is quite good at that — but scary in the service of an exhilarating emotion.” Feige added. The movie is scheduled to release in March 2022.
