Awesome interview Rob.

Goes to show the great direction Marvel keeps going with a guy like this in charge.

 Great intrerview Rob.  Feige really has a plan as to what they want to do there at Marvel.  Everytime I read or see and interview with him in it I am amazed at how sharp he is.

"Hugh Jackman and Andrew Garfield have been extremely cool in their enthusiasm for such a project, and they’re very supportive of what we’re doing here. But I don’t know that the various studio heads who make that call agree with them."

And this is why FOX and Sony are retarted.  DO you know how big that movie would be, to just throw in a Wolvie or Spidey into the Avengers?  Fox/Sony would make millions just on the licensing back to marvel for that movie. With no costs at all.

It can be done with Sony. They have been close and the relatonship between both studios is amicable.

Fox is a different story all together.

Also, Feige maybe also saying the nice diplomatic response to not bad mouth the Fox movies (Marvel are still getting a cut out of them). I mean think about it. Why would Marvel and the MCU include the cluster f.uck mess of a continuity the Singer X-universe has brought us?

I could see it with Spidey as the Webb/Garfield version could fit in better in the MCU than the Raimi one.

Here is a wild stat. Marvel Comics (with all studios) have had 34 theatrical movies since 1998 (well, 33 since I don't think Man-Thing counts).

That's an average of 2 movies a year. I remember collecting Marvel Comics way back in the 80s and would have never thought of this being possible in the future.

On the other hand, DC Comics movies since then? Grand total of 7. Well, 9 if you count Watchmen and Jonah Hex.

Thats just it, Marvel doesn't need to bring in FOX's cluster mess of  continuity, they just need the characters.  Hugh Jackman is now synominous Wolverine and Garfield is starting to own Spider-man.

BTW, Marvel will get a cut no matter what they say about FOX.

Rob, let me make this unanimous: GREAT INTERVIEW!

Love this man Feige. Love his attitude. Love the whole Marvel moviemaking attitude (Avoid sequelitis!). They have a plan and strategies they go by and it works! They treat their source material with respect and the audiences-whether they all know the comics or not- seem to sense it and enjoy it all the more.

I've enjoyed alot of the Sony, Fox, and DC/Warners comic book movies but they lacked something that Feige/Whedon/Faverau and others at Marvel have: vision No, not the android! They orignated an idea that united their owned characters in a cohesive plan under one leadership instead of just divving them out. "Here you take Superman. You take Batman, Here's Spider-Man. Do whatever with it as long as it makes money. Plan? I guess if you want. Just try to make as many sequels with whatever plots you've got."  

Now they see the innovative plan that Marvel created and they are playing catch-up. They can all make something great and I look forward to it, but they won't be the innovators that Marvel Studios has become.

ElBaz13 4/4/2014 12:40:45 PM

Exactly. Long term planning is key. Not just "hey, let's hurry up to throw a movie together" or "we better get something going before the rights go back!"

In another interview, Feige said Marvel has plans until 2028? WTF? An average of 2 movies a year and that's  28 movies.

The key here is they develop these movies as a team. Marvel writers are consultants and their brains are picked for story ideas.

I keep thinking of the hack Singer and how he has no clue of comicbook universes. Fox had even hired Mark Millar as a consultant and he didn't even give him a phone call. Singer even dissed Whedon rewrite of the original X-men script way back.
