In his current role as producer and president of Marvel Studios, KEVIN FEIGE is a hands-on producer and oversees Marvel Studios’ feature film productions.
Under his leadership and guidance, the 20 films he has produced have all opened No. 1 at the box office and are all rated Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. His forward-thinking approach to production, casting and globally resonant storylines makes him one of the most exciting and relevant filmmakers of our time.
Since the inception of Marvel Studios, Feige has continually brought together a diverse group of talent for each of his films, seeking out unique and unexpected voices to bring the studio’s stories to life, from writers and directors to actors and below-the-line professionals.
This effort reached its apex with this year’s release of the critically acclaimed Black Panther. The film became a global cultural phenomenon and a critical hit, proving that showcasing diverse voices can lead to enormous global success.
The most successful domestic release of 2018, Black Panther earned more than $1.3B worldwide. Among the global hits Feige has produced are The Avengers, Captain America, Iron Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War and, most recently, Ant-Man and The Wasp.
Feige continues his advocacy of women and representation with the upcoming female-led Captain Marvel and storylines around major strong female characters from Black Widow to many more.
A graduate of the University of Southern California, School of Cinematic Arts, Feige first worked for Lauren Shuler Donner and Richard Donner at their Warner Bros.–based production company, which released the action-adventure Volcano and the hit romantic comedy You’ve Got Mail.
In summer 2008, Feige’s first foray as a full producer was the first fully developed and financed film from then-fledgling Marvel Studios, the commercial and critical hit Iron Man, directed by Jon Favreau.
Feige’s drive to put unique storytellers at the forefront helped to craft groundbreaking and hugely successful projects that became a showcase for unexpected talent both in front of and behind the camera.
Feige has continued without breaking stride, breaking numerous box office records and expanding Marvel Studios’ slate to up to three releases per year.
This year in addition to Black Panther, Feige produced the long-awaited Avengers: Infinity War, which opened to critical acclaim and broke domestic and global box-office records on its way to becoming the highest-grossing Marvel Studios film thus far, as well as Ant-Man and The Wasp, which opened No. 1 at the domestic box office and is the fifteenth Marvel Studios film to surpass $600 million worldwide.
