Kevin Feige, President, Marvel Studios is one man who is well known for his ability to chalk out plans for things to turn out well in the future. He has meticulously planned the unveiling of several solo superhero movies that eventually led to the Avengers movies.
Feige has already announced the slate of MCU films up to Avengers 4, releasing in 2019. Besides, he recently stated that there are another 20 movies scheduled to be developed after Avengers 4 releases.
Feige was also instrumental in the partnership with Sony which brought the Spider-Man into the MCU. A Reddit user dug up an old quote from Feige, which highlights what a long-term planner Feige is, especially when it comes to the Web-Slinger.
The Spider-Man: One More Day, trade paperback which was published way back in 2008, had quoted Feige as saying, “I read (almost) every Marvel comic that is published each and every week. For me, it’s homework, research and, of course, fun. I usually organize my pile of ‘to read’ based on what films we are currently developing and what character is undergoing a renaissance in the comics. For the past six years, Joe’s run on Spidey has been the one on top. I would sit and read it the moment it landed in my inbox. Joe’s creative daring is an inspiration, and his imaginative storytelling transcends all forms of media. My favorite J.M.S. Spidey moment also happens to be my favorite Spidey moment period: Aunt May discovers Peter’s secret. It has become my mission to put that moment on screen. Someday we will. I promise.”
It is no secret that Feige had stated this year before the deal between Marvel Studios and Sony came into existence and paved the path for Spider-Man to enter MCU. By bringing that deal to fruition, Feige lived up to his promise and Aunt May discovered that Peter Parker was Spider-Man in the last scene in Spider-Man: Homecoming!
