Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige does not believe that audiences will ever get tired of comic book films, saying they can adjust to different genres.
Comic-book movies have actually been kings of package workplace for the last two decades. Despite all the success, some have questioned when the bubble will finally pop, and audiences will merely get tired of comic-book motion pictures, however Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige does not think that will ever happen.
While speaking on The Movie Business Podcast hosted by Jason E. Squire, Kevin Feige stated that people began raising the concern of comic-book motion picture tiredness almost from the very start. “From probably my 2nd year at Marvel, people were asking, ‘Well, how long is this going to last? Is this fad of comic book movies going to end?’” Feige stated, “I didn’t really comprehend the concern. Due to the fact that to me, it was akin to stating after ‘Chosen the Wind,’ ‘Well, the number of more movies can be escaped of books? Do you believe the audience will sour on movies being adjusted from books?’ You would never ask that due to the fact that there’s a fundamental understanding amongst many people that a book can be anything. A book can have any type of story whatsoever. So all of it depends upon what story you’re translating. Non-comic readers don’t understand that it’s the exact same thing in comics.“
Kevin Feige added that comic-book movies have durability due to the fact that they can quickly be adjusted to various categories. “There’s 80 years of the most interesting, psychological, groundbreaking stories that have actually been told in the Marvel comics, and it is our fantastic opportunity to be able to take what we have and adjust them,” Feige stated. “Another way to do that is adjusting them into different genres, and what types of motion pictures we want to make.”
Marvel Studios has actually had a damn excellent performance history up until now, although it’s fair to state that Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has actually seen its share of criticism. Kevin Feige has formerly stated Stage 4 had to do with “resetting the MCU, and meeting all these brand-new characters,” thereby setting the phase for Phase 5, which will begin with the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania on February 17th.
Is Kevin Feige fix? Will comic book films continue to impress audiences for years to come or will the genre fade in time?
