Kevin Feige On The Current Marvel 'Safety Net', ELEKTRA And More
Collider rounds out their interview with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige with a modicum of new information from Feige including the current state of affairs at Marvel Studios, whether Elektra rights returned with Daredevil and more.
Over the last few days, Collider has been posting snippets of their interview with Marvel Studios President Kevin Fegie and now they've posted the interview in full which contains a few new pieces of info. Probably the most interesting new subject concerns Elektra and whether the character returned to Marvel Studios along with Daredevil. Said Feige, "Electra is part of the Daredevil contract, I believe. I believe, don’t quote me on that, I’d have to check with legal and it would take a long time and I’d have to get on the phone with business affairs, but I think she’s included under the Daredevil rights agreement." For those wondering, that's the closest we come to actual confirmation. While it would be a surprise to many to see the female anti-hero receive another solo film, she remains a very important asset for any potential new film plans for Daredevil.
Moving on to the current massive amount of fan appeal Marvel Studios and their characters are currently enjoying, Feige gave a pretty frank answer in his acknowledgement of the fact that the studio could pretty much put out anything and as long as the name Marvel is on it, people will go and see it. "It’s the characters and the franchise, and the current atmosphere of appreciation for our films with the moviegoing audience. In other words, if we release an Iron Man movie, no matter what people would come to the theater right now. That might be different in a few years from now but right now, if you put out a movie called Iron Man, if you put out a movie called “Marvel Blank” a certain amount of the moviegoing public is going to come to see it. That’s a huge safety net, which then means it’s not just about figuring out “what do people want to go see?” People want to go see what we have right now – thank goodness, and we never take that for granted because the winds could change at any moment. Which is why we say, “Okay, here’s this wonderful safety net. People want to come see our stuff, now we want that stuff to be interesting. We want them to be rewarded above and beyond just ‘oh, I want to see a suit flying around or I want to see somebody pick up a building.’” How do we make it more interesting than that? Not just for the audience, but for us." Can't argue with what Feige is saying here as Iron Man 3 is looking at final box office gross somewhere near $1B if box office trends hold true.
