Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has been named to Variety’s Most Influential People of 2022 list.
The success of Marvel Studios is given by many factors: directors, characters, stories, actors and above all a single man, who started as a simple producer but who climbed the hierarchies to become the president of the company (and not only): Kevin Feige. The work of him inevitably has changed the superhero genre and, more generally, the entertainment industry.
After serving as an Associate Producer for X-Men (2000) by Bryan Singer and having worked as an executive producer on numerous films based on Marvel comics, Kevin Feige was named president of Marvel Studios, becoming within a few years one of the most important producers in the history of cinema thanks to the unprecedented success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Furthermore, as recently emerged thanks to the temporary “divorce” between Disney and Scarlett JohanssonFeige has always tended not to start corporate conflicts with the talent of the great Marvel family rather promoting a climate of mutual cooperation.
