Is the public really getting tired of superhero movies? It is possible that many think so, but it is not the case of Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel, who defends that this problem does not exist (nor will it exist).
As Heroic Hollywood points out, Kevin Feige was a guest on The Movie Business Podcast, where he discussed the possible fatigue that the public can feel before superhero movies. According to Feige, the public will never tire of these adaptations because there are a lot of stories to tell and many options to do it.
“There are 80 years of the most exciting, moving and innovative stories ever told in Marvel comics, and it’s a great privilege to be able to take what we have and adapt them. Another way to do it is to adapt them to different genres, and what kinds of movies we want to makeFeige explained.
“I found that if we tell the story correctly and adapt them in a way that the audience is still (knock on wood so far) following us along more than 22 years later… we can [hacer] any kind of movie“.
Feige also came to compare comic book adaptations to others more focused on the novels, as is the case with Gone with the Wind. According to him, no one wonders when people will get tired of seeing these kinds of adaptations, something that should also happen when we talk about comic book adaptations.
“Since my second year at Marvel, people were asking: ‘How long will this last? Is this trend for comic book movies going to end?’. I didn’t really understand the question. For me it was like say after Gone with the Wind: ‘How many more movies can be made from novels? Do you think the audience will be bitter about the movies adapted from the books?’ You would never ask that because there is an inherent understanding in most people that a book can be anything. A novel can have any kind of story, so it all depends on the story you want to tell.“.
This 2023 will take place a series of very powerful premieres by the UCM. For starters, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, a film that will hit theaters on February 17, 2023will kick off Phase 5 of the UCM.
