Marvel boss Kevin Feige has said that they have "barely scratched the surface" of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Speaking recently to Variety, Feige opened up on the success of the MCU and how much he's enjoyed being a part of it. Feige joined Marvel in 2000 as a producer before becoming the President of Production of Marvel Studios in 2007 and eventually the President of Marvel Studios and Chief Creative Officer of Marvel in 2019.
"I feel so lucky that I get to do this job," he said. "Every costume fitting, when we see the actors transform for the first time, there's always this moment of awe. It's so incredible to take these characters and bring them to life on the screen."
The franchise as we know it is still going strong after officially launching in 2008 with Iron Man. And, as Feige puts it, it feels like this is just the beginning.
"The great thing about Marvel truly is how many wonderful, interesting characters we have in the comics — they've been at it for 85 years," said Feige on the universe's longevity. "Even after 32 movies, it feels like we've barely scratched the surface."
With the MCU continuing to expand and evolve, Feige insists that some things at Marvel Studios will remain the same. "We've had traditions at Marvel Studios that started with the very first Iron Man," he explained.
"For every new release, the cast, producers, director, and I will drop in on an opening night showing and watch the movie with the fans. Feeling the excitement in the theatre, hearing cheers or gasps from the audience, is always a reminder of what these movies and characters mean to fans," Feige continued.
"Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would have the kind of impact it did."
Currently, Phase 5 of the MCU is in full swing following the release of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. The Phase continues with the recent release of Loki season 2 on Disney+ and the upcoming blockbuster The Marvels.
The Marvels will be released in cinemas on November 10. Loki season 2 is streaming now on Disney+, with new episodes airing weekly on Fridays.
