THE EQUALIZER 2 Director Antoine Fuqua Will Meet With Kevin Feige About Potentially Helming A Marvel Film

Antoine Fuqua (The Magnificent 7, The Equalizer 2) previously revealed that he was in line to direct the Morbius movie for Sony at one point, and now he confirms plans to meet with Marvel's Kevin Feige...

Last we heard, Safe House director Daniel Espinosa had been tapped to helm Sony's Morbius movie, but Antoine Fuqua (The Equalizer 2) recently revealed that he was approached for the project and decided to pass.

However, it sounds like Fugua still has a comic book movie itch that needs to be scratched.

While chatting to HeyUGuys, the director mentioned that he has a meeting coming up with Kevin Feige about potentially helming a Marvel Studios film - although he doesn't go into any detail. He does, however, explain why he still has some reservations about entering that world.


"For me it has to be the right one, in the right situation because there’s so much visual effects going on and – ‘Where’s the director in it all?’ I need to understand it because it’s like management…they have a machine, they’ve got people, there’s the design, the whole thing is sketched out[…]Is the director doing that? Or is it a hundred other people?"

Though there are plenty of quieter, character-driven moments in Marvel movies, Fuqua does have a point, and his concerns are shared by many filmmakers and actors in the industry.

What do you guys think? Is there any particular character you'd like to see Fugua take a crack at? Drop us a comment in the usual place.
