Marvel commentaries

Marvel has been a giant machine conquering the global box-office ever since they kicked down Hollywood’s door a decade ago with Iron Man. In less than 10 years, Marvel President Kevin Feige and all involved made the Marvel logo mean something to audiences everywhere. It’s quite an extraordinary feat, one that couldn’t have been pulled off without the long, long list of great talent they’ve hired. That talent also produces some fun audio commentaries.

Marvel’s finest movies, like this weekend’s Black Panther, have struck a balance between art and commerce, and that’s a running theme throughout the commentaries for Marvel’s movies: trying to make a popcorn movie with taste, substance, and above all, character. There’s very little talk of special effects, as most of the conversations revolve around character, but maybe that’s not surprising since the Disney-owned studio has always maintained the characters are the stars of these movies. Years of work went into getting these superheroes right, which you can hear all about in some of the Marvel commentaries recommended below.
