Marvel Head Kevin Feige Talks About His Favorite Part in the Filmmaking Process

Head of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige has had a role in bringing about the films that have made up the first three phases of the MCU. Now, going strong into phase four, and having just released one of the most successful Marvel movies ever with Spider-Man: No Way Home, Feige talked about his favorite part in the filmmaking process in a new interview released by Sony Pictures (via CB).

“Sitting in a room, in this case it was a conference room at Marvel Studios, with the team is always my favorite part of the process, where anything is possible. We knew coming out of Far From Home that we didn’t want to shy away from the fact that his identity is now revealed, it’s out there, and that was certainly always the starting point, and with Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna and our director Jon Watts and Amy Pascal we sat and just started brainstorming, what happens next? What happens to him as he starts to- as he swings away form Madison Square Garden where that big TV screen outed his identity? And how does his life change and get turned upside down? And more importantly how does it effect his friends?”

Feige went on to say:

“Peter Parker can handle a lot, but when he starts to see his friends being effected by his actions unfairly that really is emotionally draining for him. So that was always early on where it was, and we had a lot of fun discussions, it’s always, having a discussion of ‘You know what would be cool? It would be cool if we did this, it would be cool if we did that.’ As I said I’d always been saying if we ever brought Ock back you’d have to bring Alfred Molina in, and how would you do that? We thought it might be fun someday.”

He was right, it was fun! I bet it is a cool experience to just sit down with a clean slate and throw out a bunch of ideas about what could happen in a film, and see what pans out. The process has been successful so far, so they may as well stick with it.
