Marvel Chief Kevin Feige Thinks The MCU Is Here To Stay
MCU chief Kevin Feige thought people would stick to superhero movies.
During an appearance on The Movie Business Podcast, the MCU boss opened up about people’s anticipation of the genre’s demise over the past two decades.
“I’ve been at Marvel Studios for over 22 years, and most of us here at Marvel Studios have been together for a decade or more,” he added.
“Since probably my second year at Marvel, people have been asking me, ‘Well, how long is this going to be? Is this comic book movie fad going to end?'”
Feige likened the question to asking if movies based on novels could end.
“I didn’t really understand the question. Because for me it was like saying after Gone with the Wind, ‘Well, how many more movies can be made from novels?’ he said. “Do you think audiences are going to get mad at movies adapted from books?”
“You would never ask that question because most people understand that a book can be anything. A novel can have any type of story. So it all depends on the story you are translating. non-comic readers don’t understand it’s the same in comics.”
Meanwhile, Marvel movies traced their roots back to Captain America in 1944. However, the current Marvel Cinematic Universe series has since become popular. Iron Man was released in 2008
