In reality, if someone was actually a superhero, they probably wouldn’t have a cheery demeanor. There’s nothing funny about killing someone or putting your life on the line for others. Yet in the movies, and specifically the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the superheroes almost always go about their jobs with a sense of humor. From Iron Man to Age of Ultron, the Marvel Movies are generally light and sometimes downright hilarious. That’s one of the many ways Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has distinguished his films from decidedly darker superhero films like Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy.
And while the MCU has certainly carved out its own unique niche, the cloud of Nolan is always hovering. Will the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever take a turn that puts it on a path of darkness? According to Feige, no. Read his quote and more below. Read More »

By now, odds are you’re quite familiar with Kevin Feige. He’s the president of Marvel Studios and the man whose primary job is to keep the Marvel Cinematic Universe on track. Rumor says he has a bulletin board in his office with plans for Marvel movies spanning into the next decade. If anyone knows how these films connect, it’s him, because it’s his job to figure it all out and make the movies happen.
Feige’s latest film, Avengers: Age of Ultron, is the biggest Marvel movie yet. It’s a feat of storytelling and action that probably would’ve seemed impossible almost 10 years ago when Marvel Studios started to come together. Things will only get bigger from here, with films plotted through 2019, including two more Avengers movies, a Spider-Man movie, and new characters such as Captain Marvel, Black Panther, the Inhumans, Doctor Strange and Ant-Man coming to movie screens. There’s also the matter of a Civil War next year.
So Kevin Feige is important, but not too important to sit down with /Film to talk about Age of Ultron. Some of what’s covered in this interview you’ve already read (the importance of Ant-Man, planning for Spider-Man, and the end credits sequence) but there’s a lot more here. Is what happened to one character permanent? How important are the dream sequences? And what did Feige think of DC’s announcement?

Avengers: Age of Ultron exploded on the movie world this weekend and, after it was over, much of the talk was likely about the credits scene. We won’t spoil it above the jump but, suffice to say, it’s a big tease to what Phase Three has to hold. It does raise more questions than it answers, though, and we asked Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige about it. He clarified one of the biggest questions held within the scene and then offered an interesting tidbit about it too. Read about the Age of Ultron credit scene below, but beware of spoilers.

Marvel loves burying Easter eggs in their movies. Sometimes they turn out to be set-up for future films, but often they’re just fun little gags.

Find out what the Marvel Phase Two Star Wars Easter egg is after the jump.

In October 2014, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige took the stage in Hollywood and let the world know Marvel’s grand plan for Phase Three. Three months later, the biggest Marvel superhero there is – Spider-Man – was added to the plan. That happened when Sony, the company which controls the movie rights to the web-slinger, came to an agreement with Marvel over creative control of the character and allowed his incorporation into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
You’d think Spider-Man joining the MCU would have been a shake up of epic proportions. Not the case, according to Feige. In our interview for Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Marvel president gave us a little peek at how Marvel works by explaining that they had a plan already in place in case Spider-Man became available again. Read Feige’s quote about the Marvel Spiderman movie below. Read More »

Sony’s plans to reboot the Spider-Man franchise are coming into clearer focus. According to new reports, the new film will center on a teenaged Peter Parker — not Miles Morales or another character as some have speculated.
What will be different this time around, though, is we won’t be starting with an origin story. At this point, even Marvel Studios figures there’s no need to rehash the same old tale. Read Kevin Feige‘s comments about the Spider-Man reboot Peter Parker after the jump. Read More »
An Avengers junket wouldn’t be an Avengers junket without a big surprise. In 2012, it was the reveal that the cast was filming one more scene. In 2015, for Avengers: Age of Ultron, Kevin Feige premiered the new trailer for Ant-Man, which went online Monday. Watch it here.
Now that you’ve seen the new trailer, we talked to the Marvel Studios President about the Peyton Reed film. With a slot after Avengers: Age of Ultron but before Captain America: Civil War, many fans have wondered what – if any – significant Ant-Man would have in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well, according to Feige, a lot. He says the film is actually a “different kind of culmination to Phase Two” and is quite important in setting a tone that links Age of Ultron and Civil War.
