Vanity Fair — After a decade of unprecedented success, Marvel Studios is at a pivotal moment: the looming farewell to some of its founding superheroes, and the rise of a new generation. Kevin Feige, the creative force behind the $13 billion franchise and a slew of Marvel stars, discusses its precarious beginnings, stumbles, and ever-expanding empire.

On a sweltering October weekend, the largest-ever group of Marvel superheroes and friends gathered just outside of Atlanta for a top-secret assignment. Eighty-three of the famous faces who have brought Marvel’s comic-book characters to life over the past decade mixed and mingled—Mark Ruffalo, who plays the Hulk, bonded with Vin Diesel, the voice of Groot, the monosyllabic sapling from Guardians of the Galaxy. Angela Bassett, mother to Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther, flew through hurricane-like conditions to report for duty alongside Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Brie Larson, Paul Rudd, Jeremy Renner, Laurence Fishburne, and Stan Lee, the celebrated comic-book writer and co-creator of Iron Man, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men.

Their mission: to strike a heroic pose to commemorate 10 years of unprecedented moviemaking success. Marvel Studios, which kicked things off with Iron Man in 2008, has released 17 films that collectively have grossed more than $13 billion at the global box office; 5 more movies are due out in the next two years. The sprawling franchise has resuscitated careers (Downey), has minted new stars (Tom Hiddleston), and increasingly attracts an impressive range of A-list talent, from art-house favorites (Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton in Doctor Strange) to Hollywood icons (Anthony Hopkins and Robert Redford) to at least three handsome guys named Chris (Hemsworth, Evans, and Pratt). The wattage at the photo shoot was so high that Ant-Man star Michael Douglas—Michael Douglas!—was collecting autographs.

[…]

Disney promises that Marvel has at least another 20 years’ worth of characters and worlds to explore—for starters, the studio is finally delivering films with black and female heroes at the core—but declines to offer up any secrets of that ambitious slate. Moviegoers, for now, will simply have to trust in Feige. Luckily for Marvel obsessives, the 44-year-old studio executive is one of them. “At the heart of Kevin is a real”—Scarlett Johansson paused before using the same word everyone does to describe her boss—“fanboy.”

About ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’: “It was my favourite film when I was a kid and I even had a version of the board game, so I just couldn’t believe it when I got the audition, I was like: ‘They’re remaking “Jumanji”?!’ And I felt a little bit protective over it, but also really excited to see what they were going to do with it. I didn’t expect to be in it! […] It’s very challenging to shoot in the deep jungle. There were mosquitoes everywhere, I was getting bitten left, right and centre! My legs just got covered in these bites and they were so swollen. I’m sure they’re going to have VFX them out.”
About moving to New York City: “It’s the greatest city in the world […] It’s definitely more my vibe than LA. I don’t know how to drive and I’m pale and Scottish, so I can’t really go out in the sun — LA’s not catered to me. However, New York is just amazing and vibrant and full of life. And there are people from other professions unlike in Hollywood, which is so nice.”
About ‘The Party’s Just Beginning’: “I had to change [the title] because Tupperware’s a brand name, and they did not want their name on our film, which is understandable. It’s about a girl dealing with the suicide of her best friend and so it’s not the most uplifting of subject matters.”
