Comic-Con Exclusive: Marvel's President of Production Kevin Feige
July 21, 2013
For just about every Comic-Con International in San Diego for the past few years, Marvel Studios has taken the plum Saturday night position in order to bring the most excitement to the gathering throng and they almost always have lots of surprises to offer. This year, SuperHeroHype/ComingSoon.net got on the phone a couple hours before the anticipated Marvel Studios panel to try to get some sort of preview of what to expect, but having spoken to Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige many times in the past, including earlier this year, we knew that we wouldn't be able to get the surprises out of him so we focused on a few other questions we had for him.
As it would have it, the panel mostly focused on the four Phase 2 movies that are currently in production, bringing out the cast, some logos and the first footage for the two movies that are furthest into shooting, but Feige also took the opportunity to announce the title of the "Avengers" sequel as Avengers: Age of Ultron(similar to the recent mini-series).
We talked to him about some of the other things going on in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the connections it has to the new ABC TV show that kicks off on September 24, the "Marvel One-Shot" shorts and other things.
