Kevin Feige Talks The Importance Spider-Man’s Role Is In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

As the chief at Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige usually has a lot to say – within reason – about the future of the films he oversees. He spoke at an event to promote the release of Avengers: Age Of Ultron on home entertainment in LA on Tuesday night (attended by IGN) and expounded on several topics, including the new Spider-Man’s role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Asked about the deal to bring Spidey – now to be played by Tom Holland – into the Marvel fold (at least occasionally), Feige was predictably upbeat. "Making that agreement was great, and was really amazing, and on a personal level making these movies, it means a lot because I think we can do great things with Spider-Man," he said. "I think Spider-Man can serve great purpose in our universe and that's where he belongs. That was what was unique about him in the comics was not that he was the only superhero in the world; it's that he was a totally different kind of superhero when compared against all the other ones in the Marvel universe at the time."

Of course, adding the web-slinger to the MCU means Captain America: Civil War is bursting at the seams with heroes and villains, but Feige seems untroubled by the idea that it’ll be crowded. "There were a lot of characters in The Winter Soldier, but it felt like a very singular and relatively simple thriller. Civil War follows in that same way," Feige explained. "I think that's something [directors] Joe and Anthony Russo pride themselves on, and our screenwriters Chris Markus and Steve McFeely are excellent at giving each character just enough. They're not full arcs for everybody; it's just enough that their presence is felt and important, but that the very clear single story that is being told is being served at all times." We’d argue that Civil War is considerably busier than the second Cap film, but the team have proved they know how to juggle these characters, so we’re willing to see how they handle it this time.

But the line-up looks set to radically change in the future, which makes sense given that actors’ contracts run out and new faces pop up in the various phases of Marvel’s movie storyline. Addressing the two-part Avengers: Infinity War, Feige confirmed that there will be changes. “I think it definitely is an end to some version of the team that we’ve come to know as The Avengers. Who knows exactly what is going to happen yet in that film, but I think this version of that team – and I think we start to hint at it at the end of Age of Ultron – will be evolving.” Of course, the Infinity War films are several years away, so the decisions are still being made. “One of the things we love from the comics is that the roster is always changing and new people are coming onto the team, and you can pick up an Avengers book 10 years later and you don’t recognize the people on the cover,” said Feige. “But the ideas and ideals and things that make the Avengers the Avengers still exist, and I think that’s part of what this culmination will be. We’re seeing this version of the team doing this thing to save the universe, the galaxy, however you want to put it, and we’ll kind of see where that goes. It’s not the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but I think that it is the end of part of it for sure. We’re still trying to sort out that point.”

Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Regular listeners to the Empire Podcast (sorry about the whole Call Me By Your Name theme ear worm, incidentally) will recall that we had Taron Egerton as a guest on the 300th episode, recorded in front of an audience on Valentine's Day. He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…
