Kevin Feige on future of Marvel, acquiring X-Men and MCU’s first Asian superhero

And it’s about the spectacle and an adventure that comes with the Marvel Studios movie. Here are excerpts from the conversation:


Q. Q. And I think it will be something very special and different than what we have done before. That’s hopefully the only difference. But it is fun and emotional to have come full circle with the characters that are back. It’s about the individual storyline. When we started Marvel Studios, there were thousands of characters that we knew we just couldn’t touch. Suicide Squad also won. With Wonder Woman, Warner Brothers did it first and also proved it. But it is nice now that we have more toys in the toy box that the company owns. After the deal with Fox, which characters are you most excited to see joining MCU? So that is going to be the way we are heading in the future. But doing this story of an Asian-American hero of Chinese heritage is something that is very intriguing to us. It is wonderful when a company like Marvel has access to all of its characters. And now we just get to spend much more time with all those characters. Q. I think the success of Captain Marvel thankfully proves that people do want to see that. Black Panther won the Best Costume Design, Best Original Score, and Best Production Design at the Academy Awards 2019. Kevin, during an exclusive media interaction on the sidelines of promoting Avengers: Endgame, had, however, hinted about the future Marvel films and how he plans to make the characters more diverse, now that Disney has acquired rights for X-Men from Fox.

Q. We had decided we won’t be officially talking about anything until after Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home. Has the pressure increased for you? Had we made those films earlier, maybe they would have been big hits as well. How different will be Marvel TV shows from films? As per rumours! Popular Photos

Marvel comic books superhero Shang-Chi, often called the ‘Master of Kung Fu’, is set to have his own film in the MCU. Black Panther’s Oscar win was like a victory for superhero films. Black Panther and Captain Marvel have done phenomenal business. And in the comic books, there are a lot of characters and a lot of opportunities to do that. I think there is more pressure on the Academy because they got to pay attention to the films. Advertising

They will be longer. But to go back to the earlier question, we want our films to reflect audiences all over the globe who are waiting in line to see the movies. I have been very proud of a lot of movies we have made up to this point that we were not ever recognised that way. I think we have done pretty well with the characters that we had. My first seven years at Marvel before Marvel Studios was working on the X-Men films and the Fantastic Four films at Fox, as a very low person on production. I am very excited because (we have) Winter Soldier, Falcon, Vision and Loki. Q. We only want to do movies that people seem to think are risks. Even Black Widow is happening now? I was also asked, ‘Why didn’t you make it at the beginning, 10 years ago, at the beginning of the MCU?’ And I said well, there are a lot of reasons. And I think Captain Marvel proves that Wonder Woman wasn’t just lucky or wasn’t just a one-time affair. I am very proud of Black Panther. Advertising

Avengers: Endgame is the 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that also gives closure to the story arcs of its superheroes – Iron Man, Captain America and Black Widow. Do you plan to adapt any comic book from India? I am excited about all of them. Female superheroes are a fairly recent development in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I was here with Tom Hiddleston five years ago, and there was a big fan base for Loki. How many superheroes were in Crazy Rich Asians?

Q. I think every movie we do is a risk. There’s been a lot of talk about Marvel’s first Asian superhero Shang-Chi. Because both Black Panther and Captain Marvel worked very well. More Explained

What to look for in the Union Budget 2019

Well, there’s no official update. That proves that there is an audience we were not looking at for the longest time. This, when Crazy Rich Asians, the first American movie to have an all Asian cast in 20 years, surprisingly didn’t do so well in China, and some Asian countries. So, what’s the update on that? Marvel and Kevin have all this while maintained a stoic silence about the future of MCU and what lies in store in Phase 4. And whether they are characters that were very big and popular over the last 10 years, like Captain Marvel, or more obscure characters that were changing and updating quite a bit like Shang-Chi. We have got filmmakers started. 0
Comment(s) There will be time to really dig into characters. That’s what we are excited about. But I am very glad we didn’t because our director Ryan Cooper would have been in high school! And I hope audiences around the world respond to it in the same way they do to Steve Rogers, whether they have American flags or not. Somebody, when we were promoting Black Panther, asked me, ‘Why did it take so long to make Black Panther?’. But it is hard to argue with the timing. Q. Disney buying X-Men and Fantastic Four from Fox will help Marvel Studios expand its multiverse in the upcoming phase. Do you see this as a risk or an opportunity for Marvel? We want them all to, at one point, see themselves up there. Joe Russo mentioned about Kamla Khan and Priyanka Chopra playing her. I have been in Marvel for almost 19 years. The fact that Black Panther was able to do it, and to win three of them was great. Once those are done, we will start talking about what we are doing.
