MTV news was right on the spot when Marvel president Kevin Feige stopped to speak on last night’s Golden Globe red carpet:
Key Takeaways from the surprisingly informative quick hit by MTV News’ Josh Horowitz:
- Feige said Black Panther was the “most important victory [Marvel Studios] has ever had…that it had the cultural impact it had, is what is most meaningful.”
- Feige, who admitted never having attended the annual Hollywood Foreign Press Association gala, added that it was fun to be at the Golden Globes because of Black Panther, too.
- Avengers: Endgame had its title for a very long time; even before the start of production, “[in place just as we were developing [the movie].”
- Feige believes the “Disney marketing team is the best in the world” and is up to the task of generating excitement around Endgame without giving away any secrets; of which there are many.
- Marvel’s head showrunner thinks Captain Marvel’s Brie Larson is “incredible.” However, the film is not yet complete and the team is still working on a “the cut.”
- Feige said there are hundreds of Marvel characters — not just marquee names — waiting in the wings and that he has been dreaming of the possibility of having access to so many for nearly 20 years. “It’s very exciting,” he said.
- Feige said he has seen Aquaman and “really enjoyed it.” He added, “I don’t see a rivalry [with DC], I see cool films being made.” The Marvel president deftly avoided a question about James Gunn moving to DC, as well as the status of Guardians of the Galaxy III, by saying that his former director makes cool films.
Kudos to the reporter, Mr. Horowitz, for landing the interview and getting so many pertinent questions into his short time with Kevin Feige.
