Whereas the MCU continues to be a pillar of common tradition, the corporate’s latest output has yielded uneven outcomes. This has led many to throw across the phrases “superhero fatigue” extra often than ever earlier than.
Kevin Feige Methods In
Marvel Studio boss Kevin Feige was requested in regards to the thought of superhero fatigue when he was a visitor on a latest episode of “the Film Enterprise Podcast”.
Feige famous that he has been with Marvel Studios for over 22 years. Based on the honcho, in solely his second 12 months, superhero fatigue was already a subject of debate.
“From most likely my second 12 months at Marvel, individuals had been asking, ‘Properly, how lengthy is that this going to final? Is that this fad of comedian e-book motion pictures going to finish?’”
In Feige’s thoughts the query doesn’t even make sense. The Marvel head equated the query to film goers asking when audiences would get bored with movies based mostly on novels after “Gone With the Wind was launched”.
Feige as a substitute argues that Marvel has such a storied and wealthy catalog of comics, that the story prospects are countless.
