Over the years there have been relatively frequent rumors that Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has taken an active role Star wars Franchise. There has been a strong belief that the man behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been quietly guiding a galaxy far, far away. Now, Feige was finally asked point-by-point about those rumors and he answered without giving any reply.
Kevin feige Circling the press for publicity VandavisionThe first scripted live-action MCU series was produced for Disney +, which debuted this Friday. During a recent interview, the beloved Disney executive was asked about these rumors Star wars Franchise and whether or not there is any involvement beyond the mysterious film he is producing.

“Not at all.”
Let’s look at the big picture. Kathleen Kennedy has been running the show since Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012. As president of the company, he was directed Star wars Sequel triology, as well as spin-offs Wicked one And live-action series Mandalorian, Which became a tremendous hit.

Plus, Solo The franchise has flopped only once so far. And late Mandalorian It has become the most beloved thing to come around the franchise in a long time, with its success largely attributed to executive producers John Favreau and Dave Filoni.
It is no secret that there is an insignificant team of fans who blame too much Kathleen Kennedy for any perceived shortcomings. Star wars Disney suffers under the rule. But Kennedy still has her job and does not appear to be going anywhere. Meanwhile, Favreau and Filoni are set to play a more active role, working on a huge slate of shows being developed for Disney +. This includes Ahosa, Rangers of the New Republic, Akolite, Boba Phet’s book, Internal management and And Obi-Wan Kenobi.
If someone were to take over as creative head at Lucasfilm, Kevin Feige is an obvious choice. What he has done with the MCU is beyond impressive. In just a decade, he transformed Marvel’s superhero into the planet’s largest entertainment brand, generating more than $ 20 billion at the global box office. It doesn’t hurt that he’s an outspoken Star wars fan.
But his role within the franchise is limited to the mysterious film he is producing and developing. Nothing is known about Kevin Feige’s Star Wars film, only Michael Waldron (bottle gourd, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness) Was recently tapped to pen the screenplay. This might be the best because Feige has his hands full with the MCU, at the very least, the next five years or so. This news comes to us through Collider.
