Kevin Feige on when he’d depart from Marvel Studios & MCU; “I’ll go when I’m bored”

Since starting out as a Producer for Marvel in 2000, Kevin Feige has a long way in his close to 20 years of journey with Marvel Studios. But has the MCU boss ever given a thought about bidding farewell to the production house? Maybe not, however, he admits that he has contemplated over that thought for a long time.

The success of Marvel Cinematic Universe is largely credited to Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios and the new Chief Creative Officer for Marvel Entertainment. Moreover, the superhero genre grew thanks to early successful blockbuster titles which made way for big-budget ensemble Marvel films. Unquestionably, Feige played a vital role in the growth of comic book movie culture. But when will the veteran producer decide to depart from Marvel Studios & the entire superhero genre as a whole. Here’s his response:

Speaking to THR, He began, “Of course, I’ve imagined that. I’ve imagined that since the day I started. I wonder every few years if I want to stay or if I want to go. The truth is I’ve always said I’ll go when I’m bored. We’re doing so much right now, in so many different ways, with so much support. With Disney+ being a big part of that. I just got off the set of WandaVision, which is completely unlike anything we’ve ever done.”

In 2015, Feige did come close to leaving Marvel Studios due to heavy conflicts with the then CEO of Marvel Entertainment, Ike Perlmutter. Fortunately, it never came to that and the recent restructuring at Marvel Studios has given more creative and publishing power to Kevin Feige. But there’s some speculation that the MCU boss may be planning to head the Star Wars Universe although Kathleen Kennedy is still the president of Lucasfilm.

Feige’s film division is currently working on multiple Marvel projects such as feature films like Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Disney plus shows like WandaVision and even other television shows under Marvel Entertainment (Agents of SHIELD etc).

It’s rumored that the producer is working on establishing a larger cinematic universe to do a multiverse event sometime in the future.
