Kevin Feige Addresses Claims The MCU Is Too Sprawling For New Fans To Get Involved in

May 24, 2023

Stepping into the Marvel Cinematic Universe seems almost as daunting a task as deciding where to start reading the entire history of Marvel Comics. However, even after more than 30 movies and dozens of TV shows, Kevin Feige believes that the MCU is perfectly accessible for anyone to dip in and out when they feel like it without having to watch everything that came before. While addressing the sprawling manner of the Marvel Universe and how Marvel Studios attempt to balance that, Feige told Entertainment Weekly:

“If there’s a Marvel Studios method — like there was a Marvel method in publishing — it’s trying to do both. I’ve talked about this for years: If you want to dip in and out and just go to the movies on a Friday night or watch a streaming series, you can do that. And if you want to follow along, there’s certainly much more to be discovered. But we don’t ever want it to seem exclusive or that you need to have done your homework before watching something. Now, I’ve also realized that a lot of people like to do the homework. A lot of people find the fun in the homework and the continuity and the connectivity. But it is a balance of always trying to do both.”

As the Multiverse Saga begins its journey to Avengers: Secret Wars with the week’s release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, it would certainly be a good time for those not invested in the Marvel narrative to get themselves on board the train before it leaves the station.

Kevin Feige Says It Is Impossible for the MCU to Please Everyone, and He Isn’t Going to Try

As has been seen with many reviews of the MCU’s movies and TV shows, not everything appeals to everyone. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is currently holding one of the lowest critic reviews of the franchise, but it seems that Kevin Feige is quite happy with the differing opinions. He explained:

“It’s like when people go to the comic shops. There’s Spider-Man and the Avengers and the big title ones. And sometimes you pick up a one-off or an experiment from an artist or writer that you’re a fan of. That’s why the comics have been around for 80-plus years, and I want Marvel Studios to be around that long, if not longer. So, we have to continue to do different types of things. Does everything have to appeal to everybody? It would be nice. But I think that’s impossible. And if you try to do that, you’re going to find yourself in such a small funnel and pipeline that things will get similar and boring and atrophy very, very quickly.”

In recent years, the main complaint among critics is how the MCU is losing its way, but whether that is the nature of the beast rather than a real complaint is up for debate. Marvel Comics has many stories featuring its heroes, and in that context, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has only started to scratch the surface.
