Director hated not being in control
Even before the baby crawls Marvel Cinematic Universe with Iron Man in 2008, the publisher’s comics reached cinemas in different ways. In between demolisher, Elektra It is X-MenThe 20th Century Fox It is Sony began to represent a problem for Kevin Feige and the MCU. In the book MCU: The Reign of Marvel Studios (MCU: The Kingdom of Marvel Studios), the producer reflected on recent attempts to add films from other companies to the universe of Marvel Studios.
According to Feige, taking characters like Charles Xavier in Patrick Stewart It is Spider man in Tobey Maguire for the MCU It was something he constantly suggested and Avi Aradcreative director of Marvel Enterprises. “We suggested it, but they didn’t listen to us”he remembers. “We didn’t have control. I hated it.”
“Your character is in limbo and someone else controls him”explained in the book. “When you enter into a licensing agreement for a film, you are freezing the animation, you are freezing many other things. You’re handing your babies over to someone and nothing happens.”

Feige’s desire for control is not something new to the public. Despite his success in unifying the cinematic universe, some fans point to him as responsible for pruning the creative vision of other professionals.
But for the screenwriter Craig Kyleanimations like Planet Hulk It is Wolverine and the X-MenFeige’s positioning is a way to ensure that “great films” be delivered to the public.
“From the moment I landed at Marvel, Kevin was telling Avi [Arad] that we needed to recover our rights. Avi was in a situation where he represented all of Marvel. He was the face of Marvel Studios. Kevin was there to make great movies. That could never be a guarantee until we could actually control the process.”
Even under criticism, Feige managed to bring back several faces known to the public through the concept of multiverse. With productions like Spider-Man: No Way Home It is Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnessas well as a bright future with Deadpool 3 It is Bladeclassic comic book characters are back at Casa das Ideias.
