Kevin Feige's New Statement On Avengers Is A Big Revelation!
There’s no denying the fact that Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has gained itself one of the biggest fan following of any film franchise. With one after another movie becoming a global blockbuster, Marvel Studios Kevin Feige shares the moment he realised that MCU was a success.
“I think it was The Avengers. The success of Iron Man was amazing. That gave us the confidence to do another Iron Man film, a Captain America film, and to introduce Thor. The success of The Avengers taught us that the audience really gets what we’re doing, and really enjoys the cross-pollination of all of these different film series. And the audience told us unequivocally they were with us. That allowed us to plot out everything that we’ve done since then, and everything specifically building to Infinity War,” Feige says this in his new book Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years.
Feige also adds that strategic casting decisions for the leads also played a huge role in this success. This was important as the leads were not just for one movie but also for futures roles. He mentions the decision to cast Chris Pratt was not just because Marvel needed the best Star-Lord but also someone who might share the screen with Robert Downey Jr.
Marvel’s next movie is Avengers 4 and is one of the most highly-anticipated movies so far. The yet-to-be-named movie is set to release on 3rd May 2019
