Kevin Feige Talks About The So Called Superhero Fatigue
Vulture.com recently spoke to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige during the press junket for “BLACK PANTHER” to discuss when his contract at Marvel Studios expires and the current state of superhero films and if fatigue will ever set in for the genre.
Feige talked about his contract which will expire in 2019 and that the current plan is for him to deliver every confirmed Marvel film up to next year saying,
“I think about it through 2019, through the movies we’ve already shot or are about to start filming. I’m hoping to deliver on everything we’ve promised thus far.”
Marvel Studios current film slate for 2019 includes “CAPTAIN MARVEL” (March 6th, 2019), “AVENGERS 4” (May 3rd, 2019), and a “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING” sequel (July 5th, 2019).
Feige also added what his team at Marvel Studios are doing to make original comic book movies mixed with various genres saying,
“That’s the reason we make the movies we make and the way we make them. For years, predating the history of Marvel Studios itself, people asked me about superhero fatigue and if it was a fad or a phase. I say, if they’re all different, if they’re all special, nobody will get tired of these things before we at Marvel Studios will, since we live and breathe these things 24 hours a day. You make films like Thor: Ragnarok, like Homecoming, like Guardians of the Galaxy, certainly like Panther, and the upcoming Infinity War to keep it interesting and change it up. And we will continue to do that.”
Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios are preparing to release Ryan Coogler’s “BLACK PANTHER” in two weeks followed by Joe and Anthony Russo’s “AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR” in May and then Peyton Reeds “ANT-MAN AND THE WASP” in late July.
