While everyone talks about Marvel’s contracts with their actors, you rarely hear about contracts with their key executives. The fact is one of the reasons Marvel movies have been so successful is their leadership under Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. Since the first Iron Man movie, Feige has taken the studio from nothing to being one of the biggest brands on the planet. It’s an incredible accomplishment and one that led Disney to purchase the company for four billion dollars.
About five months ago, I decided to ask Feige when his contract with Marvel ends. At the time, he said he’d definitely be with Marvel through Phase Two, which ends with The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Since it’s been awhile, when I sat down with him earlier today in London for a Thor: The Dark World interview, I asked the same question. Thankfully, it sounds like he’s made a new deal with Marvel, because he said, “I think it’ll be awhile. At least through the next phase or so.” As a big fan of what Feige has done and Marvel movies, it’s very cool to know he’ll be with them for the foreseeable future. Hit the jump to watch what he had to say and look for more with Feige very soon.
