Marvel Boss Kevin Feige Shares His Thoughts On Fox's X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Marvel Studios' role in what Twentieth Century Fox does with the X-Men is almost nonexistant, and there appeared to be some animosity (at least in the eyes of fans) over the dual use of Quicksilver in the Avengers and X-Men franchises. So, what did Kevin Feige make of Days of Future Past? Well...

He liked it as much as the rest of us! While Guardians of the Galaxy is the highest grossing movie of 2014 domestically, you have to believe that Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios have taken note of the fact that X-Men: Days of Future Past is the superhero movie which earned more than any other worldwide this year. It's ultimately unlikely to have much of an impact of how Marvel does things (they have more than enough $1 billion hits under their belts to not feel even a little bit threatened after all), but Feige admits that Bryan Singer's "inbetweenquel" is a movie he's been giving a lot of thought to. "I've been thinking about Days of Future Past a lot, which I had nothing to do with, in terms of the resurrection of a franchise. I think they did a very good job with that." Interestingly, Feige would then point out a couple of non-Marvel Studios threequels that he obviously doesn't have a very high opinion of (just like the rest of us). "On Iron Man 3, I thought a lot about X-Men 3 and Spider-Man 3 and I thought a lot about Toy Story 3, and how to avoid falling into threequelitis, which is why we went down a lot of the roads we went down on that movie." How do you guys think X-Men: Days of Future Past matched up to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy and The Amazing Spider-Man 2?
