Kevin Feige’s Goal is to Reacquire All Marvel Characters One Day

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is already a massive place, but fans can’t help but ask for more.


Kevin Feige has made a career out of making Marvel movies and subsequently creating the most successful shared movie universe in history. But even with most of Marvel’s characters at his disposal, there’s one thing that Feige wants more than anything: a fully unified MCU, including the X-Men, Deadpool, Fantastic Four, the Avengers and Spider-Man. In an interview with the Perception design studio, it's brought up that Hugh Jackman once said the only way he would ever return to the Wolverine role if it was in an Avengers movie.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige offers the following response, and while Feige does state there are no plans to get other Marvel characters back in the MCU as of right now, he's not ruling it out:

“Well, I think Hugh has an amazing final bow in Logan this year, so I don't know if he should go anywhere beyond that. Ten movies in, what an amazing way to end. It was just great.

But yes, of course. I mean my goal is to replicate the experience that comic book fans have reading the books up on the screen. And we've been able to accomplish that beyond my wildest dreams over the last ten years including Spidey in Civil War, and the upcoming Infinity War was yet another dream... that I didn't even dare to talk about publicly because I though that the odds of it were very slim. So no plans beyond for that right now for the few remaining charcters that aren't in the MCU, but I always say 'never say never' who knows what can happen in the future.”

Now that Sony and Marvel Studios have made a deal to let Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (played by Tom Holland), the biggest target now in this conversation is the relationship between Marvel and 20th Century Fox - who own the rights to both the X-Men and the Fantastic Four. In the past, reports have stressed that the relationship between Marvel and Fox are less-than-ideal. With the latter studio planning to overhaul its X-Men Cinematic Universe, it is hard to think that Fox would willingly seek out the MCU. However, the studio might be willing to lend the Fantastic Four. Fox has given two go’s at the superhero family, but neither series has sat well with fans. In fact, Fox’s most recent take on the Fantastic Four bombed at the box-office, and fans left theaters feeling cheated by the overly gritty feature.
