Kevin Feige Shares Thoughts On FOX's Potential Marvel Cinematic Universe

While he’s already overseeing the second Phase of Marvel Studios’ shared universe, president Kevin Feige has shared thoughts on FOX’s own potential build-up with X-Men & Fantastic Four.

While Marvel Studios is making unprecedented and great commercial use of the many characters rights it holds, the folks at 20th Century Fox may soon establish their own little shared cinematic Marvel universe, per X-Men: Days of Future Past and The Fantastic Four reboot. Amid promotion for Iron Man 3, which notably launches Marvel’s Phase Two slate, President of Production Kevin Feige shared thoughts on 20th Century Fox’s forthcoming plans. After Iron Man 3 director Shane Black jokingly suggested Feige would “piss on their graves!,” Kevin laughed before stating:

“That’s for the midnight set. You know, we have a certain amount of involvement in those, but not an enormous amount. I’ve heard them talk about wanting to do that, but the only one I actively know about is

X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is more about combining the X-Men franchises in a way that sounds unbelievably cool. Particularly those first two, which is where I sort of cut my teeth on beginning to develop and produce these films. The fact that Bryan is going back to it, I think they’re on to something with the new X-Men movie, and crossing those two franchises together, X-Men: First Class and the originals. And using one of the best comic stories ever. But whatever else they’ll do with Fantastic Four and the others, we’ll see.”

Considering The Fantastic Four reboot is one of many heavy-hitters that’ll hit the big-screen in 2015, the year The Avengers sequel releases, Kevin Feige was then asked is there a point where there’s too many big movies? “Well, I think the last few summers have shown... I mean, there were a lot of big movies this summer. A lot of them did well, some of them didn’t. In terms of one studio releasing that many movies, we’ll see. ed through the summer of [2007], where there was Spider-Man 3, Pirates of the Caribbean 3 and Shrek 3. They all came out within a week of each other, and they were the three biggest movies of the year. A week is kind of a long time for moviegoers thankfully, luckily. The Avengers 2 also comes out first, so... (Laughter)”

As he implied earlier, it seems Kevin Feige really doesn’t know much about the new Fantastic Four film; it’s slated for theaters on March, 6, 2015, before The Avengers sequel’s May 1, 2015 release.
