Kevin Feige is the man with the plan. The president of Marvel Studios is the person most directly responsible for Marvel movies not only being good, but connecting with one another to tell one big story.
His latest success, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, is now in theaters and breaking all kinds of box office records. The record-breaking is no surprise but it’s bad luck to say that a few weeks before release, which is when I sat down with Feige to talk all things Marvel.
We discussed a lot of things you’ve already read on the site. The Batman vs. Superman release date, the ending of the film, some of the new characters, the Doctor Strange director short list, the Avengers tower, but now this is the full interview. It has lots of new nuggets, including why Hawkeye isn’t in The Winter Soldier, that exciting name mentioned in the film, if the Netflix shows will tie into the MCU, Paul Bettany, discussion of the post credits scene and more.
Below, read our full Kevin Feige interview for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Read More »

We may not know who is directing Marvel’s Doctor Strange yet, but we now have an idea how it’ll fit in the realistic Marvel Cinematic Universe. Stephen Strange is a mystical character who uses powers on Earth that wouldn’t seem to fit in with the world of Captain America, Iron Man and the Hulk. In a new interview though, president of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige gave an example of how Strange’s powers will fit in with the other characters.

Marvel has had an impressive run at the box office since the debut of Iron Man in 2008, leading up to the billion-dollar success of The Avengers last year. The company is in its self-defined “phase two” right now, which began with Iron Man 3 earlier this year, and will continue with Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians the Galaxy, and conclude with Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015.
We know that phase three kicks off with Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man, also in 2015. And as Feige did press for the new Thor film this past weekend, he was asked many questions about the further development of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Will we see characters such as The Punisher, Daredevil, and Doctor Strange on screen? How about a solo film for a female character? When will we know the titles for the “mystery movies” dated for May 6, 2016, July 8, 2016, and May 5, 2017? And what’s up with James Spader being cast as the title villain in the Avengers sequel?
