Kevin Feige on the Disney-Fox Merger and His Future at Marvel2 min read
Marvel Studios president opens up about the Disney FOX merger and how he is approaching it.
Disney bought most of 20th Century FOX’s properties last year. That included the likes of X-Men and Fantastic 4. Many of us initiated speculations about the different ways in which our beloved X-Men could be introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However , as stated earlier , deals of this sort , often takes a period of 12-18 months to complete. Kevin Fiege adressed the same issue at the press junket for Black Panther when he was asked by Vulture as to where things stand.
We all know about the humble nature of Kevin Fiege. And pertaining to that , Fiege seemed to indicate that the deal was something “above his pay-grade“. However , when the interviewer was persistant , Fiege revealed something which might just dissapoint some fans.
“The truth of the matter, as I understand it, is the deal has to be figured out. There’s been no communication.We’re not thinking about it. We’re focusing on everything we’ve already announced. If and when the deal actually happens, we’ll start to think more about it. Until then, we have a lot to do.”
Avengers : Infinity War and its unnamed sequel Avengers 4 will round up about a 22 movie arc spanning over a 10 year period. That , though phenomenal in its own sense , have very less room for experimental add-ons. “It would be years away,” Feige cautioned about the add-ons we have been thinking about. “We’ve announced everything through 2019, so none of those would be adjusted.”
However , the FOX Disney merger should help up plan movies after the uncertain period we have after 2019 for MCU. Looking back , this can be the best approach Disney had thought of to fight back the dreaded “superhero fatigue“.
It had been admired time and again of the strict undivided attention Marvel provides to its current movie. Thanks to that good discipline inside the studio , Fiege hopes to deliver on the things previously promised before. Anything else seems both not possible and not desirable at this point.
