Kevin Feige On Which Marvel Movie Rights He Wants Back And The Odds Of Him Directing
Marvel has been having to skirt around a couple of rights issues for years now. Ever since they tried to get their movies going by leasing them out to other companies, such as Sony and Fox, they have desperately tried to find away out of the lease. There is no solution in sight that will ever see the likes of Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four or The X-Men join The Avengers in a big cosmic battle royale.
But what if Marvel could just have one back? That is the question that was posed to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige while he was promoting Captain America: The Winter Soldier. “The answer is all of them,” he told Movies.com. “It would be nice to have all of them back, all for different reasons. I think that will remain a theoretical question for years to come, though.”
Feige is known for pulling the strings behind the scenes to make all these Marvel movies happen. However, the opportunity to direct must be something he’s interested in, right? No actually as he said, “The truth is I am having too much fun overseeing all of them and having a hand in all of them, and the only way to do that, the only way to direct movies, is to step out of much of the other work and focus entirely on one thing. Shaping all of the individual films on certain levels is too much fun to think about working on any single one.” However, when told he had to pick one he lamented and said it was one he would not be able to direct. “Well, Dazzler is taken by Fox,” he said. “So my first choice is gone.”
I for one would be interested to see his take when it comes to directing a movie for Marvel. He is a brilliant mind that has orchestrated this whole movie universe, so I’m sure he could translate that brilliance into one movie. While the odds are slim that it will never happen, let’s cross our fingers and hope for the best. For the latest on all Marvel movies, make sure to check back here at Comic Book Therapy.
