In an exclusive, Kim Masters from The Hollywood Reporter has announced that the head of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, is getting a crack at that familiar galaxy far, far away.
Kathleen Kennedy, who is said to be developing a “wave of projects”, is quietly assembling talent for future projects set in the Star Wars universe. One of those talents is fellow Disney employee Kevin Feige, who of course is the architect behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), which is considered to be the most successful franchise of all time.
The article states that talks of him making a contribution to the Lucasfilm library of films began this past summer when he began meeting with Kennedy, Alan Horn, and Alan Bergman, the studio co-chairs. And at this point, it appears it's a single movie project, although that can obviously change quickly.
For his part, Feige is a self-admitted Star Wars fanatic and the thought of him bringing this kind of clout to a Star Wars film is exciting to be sure. There are already reports that he’s even approached an actor from the MCU with a specific part in mind, although that is just pure speculation at this point.
Walt Disney Studios co-chairman and chief creative officer Horn had to this say in response to the THR reporting…
"We are excited about the projects Kathy and the Lucasfilm team are working on, not only in terms of Star Wars but also Indiana Jones and reaching into other parts of the company including Children of Blood and Bone with Emma Watts and Fox. With the close of the Skywalker Saga, Kathy is pursuing a new era in Star Wars storytelling, and knowing what a die-hard fan Kevin is, it made sense for these two extraordinary producers to work on a Star Wars film together."
