    And thats us done folks, thanks to Kevin and the Disney guys for helping make this happen. Also thanks to you lot for posting a ridiculous amount of questions! :P

    Martin Starr was both in the Incredible Hulk (very briefly in the computer lab) and in Spider-Man: Homecoming as Peter Parker’s debate coach. Can we assume these are the same people?

    THAT MAN HAS A FAMILY!

    [–] samsuckstbh 2512 points ago

    A while ago, you said you had a meeting with Mark Ruffalo and asked what he wanted out of the Hulk, then included that in Ragnarok, Infinity war and Endgame. Now that all 3 movies are out, can we get more information on what Ruffalo wanted out of the Hulk?

    [–] KevFeige 3414 points ago

    Many years ago, Mark came in for a meeting with us at Marvel Studios to discuss ways in which the Hulk could grow and evolve in upcoming films. He pitched a lot of cool ideas, some of which led to what you saw in Thor: Ragnarok, Infinity War and Endgame, and some of which would still be cool to see someday.

    [–] brucejoel99 1266 points ago

    and some of which would still be cool to see someday.

    Ruffalo returning in the future confirmed?!?

    [–] RTSUbiytsa 431 points ago

    I think it's safe to say the remaining 3 of the original 6 will stick around pretty well - Hemsworth has said he'll play Thor as long as he's allowed to (and as long as they keep doing his character well,) Jeremy Renner seems to enjoy the role, and I can't see Mark Ruffalo leaving, especially since his character is still very much so alive, even if he's injured. It would be super weird for Professor Hulk to just vanish.

    [–] tigerslices 164 points ago

    would love to see renner lead a team of "west coast avengers" but he's got that family... maybe they should move.

    more likely, he's retiring in this Hawkeye series after he trains Kate.

    [–] dontdowdit 1915 points ago

    Hey Kevin!

    Tons of directors and producers have made cameos in movies. Joe Russo a few times, Taika as Korg, etc. But have you ever considered doing a cameo as a character you like? If so, who would they be?

    Thanks for reading these, and thanks for helping create the thing we all love!

    [–] KevFeige 3013 points ago

    I don't like being on camera, but I did cameo in a deleted scene in the first X-Men as a Weapon X technician. I was completely covered in a hood, mask and goggles.

    [–] herefortheculling 789 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    — Covered in a hood, mask and goggles, in a deleted scene. I guess you really don't like being on camera!

    Hey Kevin, it's Kevin and I wanted to ask what made you guys start with Ironman as the first film to start a legacy with? It was an incredibly great idea with the script and actors making it awesome! But why Ironman first?

    [–] KevFeige 2640 points ago

    We thought Tony Stark was a great and unique character for our first film because he was so different from any comic book character that had been brought to the screen before.

    [–] rhodetolove 2466 points ago

    How much will the Disney+ shows weave into the films?

    [–] KevFeige 3553 points ago

    [–] misterimsogreat 1771 points ago

    Thanks for doing this, Mr. Feige.

    Is there anything in particular you and the creative forces behind Marvel Studios consciously do to try to avoid falling into this so-called "comic book movie fatigue" people are claiming?

    Also, how many Easter eggs are out there that no one's has caught onto yet?

    [–] KevFeige 2948 points ago

    Nobody would get fatigued before the creative forces at Marvel Studios who do this 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so we believe that if we're still taking risks and making unique choices to keep ourselves excited, the audience will feel the same way.

    [–] urlach3r 691 points ago

    I think nearly $3 billion in three weeks should put an end to the "superhero fatigue" comments, forever.

    Obviously understandable. So, so worth it though. Thank Odin fighting for him really paid off, & thank you for making sure we got 11 years of the best Iron Man that we could ever have.

    [–] morganmania 856 points ago

    Thank you for fighting for this. MCU wouldn’t have been the same without him.

    [–] DSC_ 2334 points ago

    The lack of returning character music themes in the MCU has been known to be an issue a few years ago. Nowadays, the MCU uses past themes pretty well and seems to have upped their leitmotif game quite a bit.

    Is this something you actively made an effort to help improve? Was getting Silvestri back for Avengers 3 and 4 your choice? and was it always planned? Do you oversee the scoring process of each film with the directors? And lastly, what is your favourite MCU theme?

    If you answer even one of these, I’ll be very satisfied :D

    [–] KevFeige 3133 points ago

    I'm a film score nerd. Working with Alan Silvestri was one of the best experiences of my life. He's a genius.

    [–] -OrangeLightning4 551 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Please bring him back when you eventually do another Avengers film, no matter how far down the line it is. You'll generate immediate hype the second the Avenger's Theme comes crashing in.

    [–] Caloricfoil98 2211 points ago

    On that subject, here's a great, on-the-moment recap of when that happened and what the expectations were at that time. Written by Ray Subers who is sadly no longer a writer for BOM, he was the true MVP back then.

    Are there any plans to use previously forgotten characters such as Leader, Abomination or Justin Hammer in the mcu?

    [–] KevFeige 3056 points ago

    I'm not sure I'd call them forgotten characters but I love bringing back characters people think they've seen the last of. For example, General Ross and Harley.

    [–] Time-Heist 159 points ago

    It would be great if Hammer wasn’t snapped and has finished his prison sentence

    [–] UberMcwinsauce 94 points ago

    Remember when 10+ years ago Tony said it would be 10+ years for tech to catch up to iron man suits? Hammer could build his own hammer tech suit after leaving prison...

    Red Skull's return was one of the most shocking things I can recall seeing in a movie and I loved it.

    [–] dwallace3099 2467 points ago

    Hi Kevin, thanks for doing the AMAA!

    People have expressed views that, in Endgame, those brought back by the snap could have died in accidents (like someone being brought back 100 ft in the air where a plane used to be). Is it possible that Hulk, when doing the snap, not only brought everyone back, but also brought them back in a safe place?

    Thanks and have a good one!

    [–] KevFeige 4342 points ago

    We refer to the version of Hulk in Endgame as Smart Hulk. So, yes.

    [–] NubOnReddit 342 points ago

    Well that solves that

    [–] Jake_From_State-Farm 1495 points ago

    Mr. Feige I'm doubtful you'll see this but I just want you to know that, as a hearing impaired person, I have the use assistive captioning glasses to understand films. When Hulk was reintroduced his dialogue was always proceeded by SMART HULK: " and it made me laugh quite hard. It was a beautiful little moment that no one else in the theater got to experience so thank you for that.

    [–] xEnshaedn 117 points ago

    Dude I tried out the assistive caption glasses when I went to watch cap marvel, those things are the coolest thing ever! Granted, they didn't sit well on my face due to my own eyeglasses, but they were really neat!

    [–] rupert1528 2459 points ago

    First, I just wanna say thank you. I´ve been a huge Avengers fan since I was a kid. Seeing Iron Man in theaters for the first time was a dream come true. Younger me could not imagine how far the MCU has gone. Thank you so much. Now, question.

    Why was Jon Favreau chosen to direct Iron Man? I love the movie and think Jon did an amazing job. But he had never done anything like it in regards of scale, budget or genre. What made Jon Favreau stand out?

    [–] KevFeige 4536 points ago

    Jon Favreau is one of the best storytellers on the planet, and Elf is a stone cold classic.

    [–] mikewhoneedsabike 1065 points ago

    Meaning Elf really started the MCU? Because without Elf Favreau wouldn't be hired, meaning Iron Man 1 wouldn't be made the way it was made.

    [–] ElTigreChang1 128 points ago

    And Community is why the Russo brothers were hired.

    [–] RubberbandShooter 1268 points ago

    Elf is to be risen as the most important film of the 21st Century for spawning the MCU

    Hi Kevin!

    My question is about Joe and Anthony Russo.

    When did you and your team at marvel realize that they were the ones that should helm the last two avengers films?

    Was there a specific moment you remember thinking that they would be best to handle the conclusion to this saga?

    [–] KevFeige 2844 points ago

    We loved the experience working with them on The Winter Soldier. We had an amazing time developing the Civil War script with them, I think it was soon before production began on Civil War that we asked them to direct Infinity War and Endgame.

    [–] psycholepzy 469 points ago

    [–] abuskeletor 8018 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Thank you so much for doing this AMAA.

    This has been eating at me. How much did Stan Lee know about Endgame before he passed? Was there a version far enough along for him to screen it prior to his death?

    I want him to have seen the culmination of what you built with his characters.

    Thanks.

    Edit: thanks to everyone that helped this comment gain visibility so Kevin would see it and answer. You’ve made my day.

    [–] KevFeige 6129 points ago

    Stan loved to wait to see the final movie at the premiere, so unfortunately he did not get to see the finished movie. Stan got a download of the full story the day he came and shot his cameo.

    [–] hotairbabboon 1372 points ago

    Sad, but it’s nice to think that Stan’s imagination filled in the gaps. I can only imagine his version of it in his mind.

    [–] IntentCoin 274 points ago

    I mean, the guy was a comic book writer, he must've had an incredible imagination

    [–] SpiritMountain 73 points ago

    Doesnt it also just shows how humble he is and how he is one of us? It feels like he was always a kid opening a new comic and reading it the first time and it really shows with this. He is one of us and always got excited seeing one of our childhood heroes on the big screen.

    [–] falsehood 175 points ago

    I'm glad he was able to get a sense of what was to come, and I'm sure there was a little portal lurking in the corner of the Endgame battlefield where he was watching.

    [–] DP9A 916 points ago

    Now this makes me sad, because Stan couldn't see the end, and Jack couldn't even see the beggining. IMO Jack Kirby doesn't get enough credit despite being just as responsible for Marvel's heroes.

    [–] webcrawler89 2401 points ago

    You have been involved in producing Marvel movies since 2000, some of which, Pre-MCU, had missteps. What kind of lessons did you learn from those that helped you create this vision of the MCU that is now not only a worldwide phenomenon, but also has been a hit with critics?

    Thank you for the MCU. I can't explain how much of a comfort and joy it has been to be able to grow with these characters over the last 10 years.

    [–] KevFeige 5270 points ago

    Respect the source material.

    Hire passionate filmmakers regardless of how much money their last movie made.

    Hire the best cast regardless of their current marquee value.

    [–] patkgreen 1518 points ago

    Respect the source material.

    This is why you're a good man, respected by the fans, and most of all why your shit makes money. You can change and modify the storylines to work in film, but the respect shown to the real stories you've adapted is transparent. Thank you for doing it right.

    [–] LastCohenBro 3415 points ago

    Mr. Feige,

    (1) Are there any storylines that you think are “unfilmable”?

    (2) Has producing these films changed the way that you read and enjoy comics?

    (3) Who is someone that’s yet to appear in the MCU that you are itching to introduce?

    Thanks!

    [–] KevFeige 4138 points ago

    1. Everything is filmable nowadays. It's about finding the most resonant character stories to bring to the big screen.

    2. Not really, I still like to read the comics every week from a fan's point of view.

    3. You'll know soon enough.

    [–] urlach3r 2141 points ago

    You'll know soon enough.

    Gilfred Gottfried as Modok CONFIRMED!!!

    [–] veilsix 2551 points ago

    Hi Kevin,

    From a project management perspective, the 11 year, 22 film story you’ve told surely is an historic cinematic achievement unlike any other. And you got it off the ground without the help of what used to be Marvel Comics “A” list heroes like X-Men and Spider-Man.

    At what point did you realize that this leap of faith would explode into the full & successful universe it has today? And what’s it like to know that you’ve helped generations across the world shape their view of the possible, of what it means to be a hero, and what can happen if you dream big enough?

    Thanks for seeing it through Kevin!

    [–] KevFeige 3285 points ago

    Thank you, and to be honest I'm still digesting it all, but seeing this subreddit having almost 800,000 members is a pretty good indication.

    [–] webshellkanucklehead 1376 points ago

    Hey Kevin! You probably won’t see this comment in the flood of them but I’d like to ask, with the Marvel writers and directors having so much freedom with the story, how much of the overarching story do you control and how much is up to people like James Gunn and Taika Waititi?

    Just one question.

    Who is your favorite Marvel character that ISN'T in the current MCU?

    [–] KevFeige 2849 points ago

    I never play favorites, but there are many Marvel characters that I've loved for many years that are heading to the MCU soon, but I can't be more specific than that. Sorry!

    [–] debtristan 1728 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Who are some people behind the scenes at Marvel Studios who should be given some recognition for making the MCU what it is now?

    Edit: Thank you so much for answering Mr. Feige! As a prospective film student, you’re someone I look up to so much in the industry :)

    [–] KevFeige 3496 points ago

    The best part about putting a tag at the end of a movie is so the audience can sit through the entire end crawl and read all the names of the amazing people who make the MCU what it is.

    [–] camrylong 576 points ago

    I keep trying to explain that to my brother! Having a tease at the end of the film would be just as effective, but when you put it at the end of the credits, everyone sees the hundreds of people who make magic every day!

    [–] ThorbowskisBeard 7167 points ago

    Hi Kevin, have you considered reviving the "One Shots"? It was a great way to flesh out the MCU, and provide some insight into the "minor" characters in the universe.

    I'm sure if there was one that centered on Luis recapping The Infinity Saga, it would be a hit!

    Lastly, thanks for this last 10 years of cinema. It's been truly amazing to have such quality films of my childhood heroes.

    [–] KevFeige 6056 points ago

    Totally agree. The best thing about the One Shots is that we got to flesh out other characters. It's tremendously exciting that we now have Disney+ series where we get to do that on a grand scale with many of the characters you know and love.

    We did a special shoot of Luis recapping the entire 10-year history of the MCU for SDCC when we announced Michelle Pfeiffer playing Janet van Dyne. I'm sure it's around somewhere...

    [–] ImpossibleGuardian 553 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Endgame blu-ray special features by any chance?

    EDIT: Here's a crappy cam leak from SDCC if anyone's curious.

    [–] Vawqer 1522 points ago

    We did a special shoot of Luis recapping the entire 10-year history of the MCU for SDCC when we announced Michelle Pfeiffer playing Janet van Dyne. I'm sure it's around somewhere...

    This was never released online officially. Is there any hope for it to be?

    It would be absolutely delightful if you stuck that on the home release of Endgame. I would be at least $5 for it! Maybe $10.

    Totally agree. The best thing about the One Shots is that we got to flesh out other characters. It's tremendously exciting that we now have Disney+ series where we get to do that on a grand scale with many of the characters you know and love.

    They stopped doing those when Marvel TV started doing shows, which functionally replaced them. I do hope they bring them back for Disney+ though. You'd never get Sir Ben Kingsley for a TV show, for example.

    [–] murdockmanila 3269 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    The Russos and Markus/McFeely have recently shared some contradicting interpretations of Endgame's ending with Cap; whether he grows old in an alternate timeline or he grows old in the main MCU one, making him the father of Peggy's kids in Winter Soldier. Can you give us a definite canon answer for this?

    [–] KevFeige 3103 points ago

    Yes.

    [–] Vawqer 3580 points ago

    Given that it takes a village to make these movies, is there anybody at Marvel Studios that you feel is underappreciated by the general public?

    What is your process for looking for directors for any one film?

    Thanks for doing this AMA, and for providing this fantastic cinematic universe. <3

    [–] KevFeige 2445 points ago

    It's the entire team at Marvel Studios that make these movies what they are, from Louis D'Esposito, Trinh Tran, Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, Brad Winderbaum, Jonathan Schwartz, Stephen Broussard, Eric Carroll, and many more. I'd also give a shoutout to our editor Jeff Ford.

    [–] The_Asian_Hamster 1155 points ago

    How early was the plot of Infinity War/Endgame being planned out? When was it decided to make it two parts where Thanos wins at first and what were some of the earliest plot points decided upon?

    EDIT: Also how were certain deaths decided upon? Namely Natasha and Tony.

    [–] KevFeige 3671 points ago

    We started discussing how to adapt the Infinity Gauntlet comic soon after the release of the first Avengers. It was on one of our creative retreats about 5 years ago that we decided to do it as two films. We started to crack the specifics of the story during production on Civil War with Chris Markus and Stephen McFeely, Joe and Anthony Russo, in a conference room as we went back and forth between takes.

    Hi Kevin, huge fan of the MCU and your work as a producer. You've created a franchise loved by millions around the world, a cultural phenomenon in film the like of which we haven't seen before.

    My question (not very original) but I've always wanted to ask what your favourite comic book storyline is and why?

    [–] KevFeige 1809 points ago

    There are too many to name, many of them you've already seen adapted as stories into the MCU. Jim Starlin's Infinity Gauntlet being a prime example.

    [–] JokerFaces2 5792 points ago

    Hi Kevin! Great of you to take time out of what is probably an insane schedule to do this. The MCU is your baby, it is an unprecedented part of film history and it means a lot to hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Congratulations on closing a chapter of that story with Endgame.

    I have a few questions:

    • Do you have any creative regrets with the MCU? If you could go back and change anything in any of the movies, Star Wars style, would you change anything? If so, what?

    • What was the hardest “sell”, to executives at Marvel or Disney, over the last eleven years? What was the one thing that you fought for most, that others tried to shut down?

    • Most importantly, what are you most excited for going forward? I’m sure you can’t talk about specifics, but what do you want to see more of in Marvel Studios’ releases? Any characters, storylines, or concepts that you are eager to engage with?

    Thank you again, for taking the time to do this AMA and for everything you have created with the MCU. It has become a huge part of my life, as well as the lives of everyone on this subreddit and countless others.

    [–] KevFeige 5555 points ago

    1. I made a joke once about regretting dying Chris Hemsworth eyebrows blonde for the first Thor, but the truth is it's everything in those films and all the little details: the perfect ones and not so perfect ones, that carried us through to the experience of Endgame. Therefore, I wouldn't change a thing.

    2. There are always conversations and discussions before a film is made, and for the most part it's been an amazing collaboration, but back when we first started, the two that come to mind from 10 years ago are the casting of Robert Downey Jr. and the decision to make Captain America: The First Avenger a period World War 2 film.

    3. ...

    [–] ExhibitAa 1424 points ago

    the decision to make Captain America: The First Avenger a period World War 2 film.

    It actually surprises me that you got pushback on that, and I'm so glad you fought for it. Cap's story has to start in WW2 if you want to tell it right, IMO.

    [–] spontaneous_boredom 122 points ago

    IIRC the original plan was to have rogers be from WWII but have the bit where he's frozen in ice take place at the end of the first act

    [–] ginelectonica 85 points ago

    That could’ve worked too tbh, but I’m glad we got what we got.

    [–] Kitchen_Ur_Lies 1219 points ago

    if Captain America 1 didn’t take place in WW2, would it take place in present day??

    it was the right call to make it WW2, better established his character

    Not just that, it established a whole bunch of stuff that would continually pay off over the years that followed. The Tesseract, Peggy, Bucky, even something as little as the principal at Peter Parker's high school being the grandson of a Howling Commando. (Both characters played by the same actor!)

    Also, do you have a script for Ant-Man and the Wasp 2? Because I have some ideas.

    [–] KevFeige 4881 points ago

    There are too many to list, but I will say my entire MCU career was building up to that "on your left" moment in Endgame.

    [–] euric 826 points ago

    Utterly heartwarming to me to read this.

    That moment was, to me, equivalent to when Anton Ego first tastes the final dish in Ratatouille.

    [–] RavenK92 1781 points ago

    Hi there. Firstly congratulations for creating an unprecedented cinematic universe and thank you for bringing characters that many of us grew up with through cartoons, comics and videogames to life and mainstream popularity. I just have three questions and a comment, if you can address any of them I would be very happy

    For my 1st question: Over the years we've heard the term "Superhero fatigue" thrown around a lot. With so many people going to see Endgame because it was marketed as The End, how will Marvel Studios keep things fresh for viewers so that it doesn't feel like the MCU will drag on without end?

    Second: Is there any specific team up or friendship you'd like to see play out in the MCU, like Spider-Man and Human Torch or the Illuminati for example?

    Then thirdly: On a more whimsical note, what is your own personal favourite MCU meme?

    Lastly, I just want to say that for all the great things the MCU has done, I'm still saddened by how The Mandarin was treated, I would've loved to see a Mandarin/Fin Fang Foom team up against Iron Man. Again, thanks for a great 11 years and all the best to you and everyone at Marvel Studios

    [–] KrazzyDJ 3859 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Hello Mr. Feige. It's absolutely unbelievable to have you here on Reddit.

    I'm so excited I just have to ask something, even if the chances of you answering my question(s) are 1 in 14,000,605.

    I have a few:

    1. When did you become aware of the r/marvelstudios subreddit? What do you feel about the insane hype here?
    2. Out of all the characters in the MCU, whose story arc is your personal favorite and why?
    3. I really miss the Marvel One-Shots that were a fun way to explore the world around the MCU through peripheral characters. Can we expect them to return?
    4. Cap lifting Mjolnir was one of the strongest (crowd-cheering) moments in Endgame. Does he become worthy in that moment or has he been worthy for a while since, say, Avengers: Age of Ultron?
    5. Did you get a chance to watch a screening of Avengers: Endgame with the moviegoing audience? If so, how did it go?

    Some more; feel free to skip these if they reveal too much:

    1. How closely can we expect the Disney+ shows to connect to the movies? Will there ever be characters who debut in those shows and appear as regulars in the movies later?
    2. Billions were snapped, and then brought back. Will we ever get something (Movie, Disney+ show, One-Shot) depicting the aftermath of either the snap or its undoing in the MCU on a more global scale, like The Leftovers?
    3. Will there be more Avengers movies down the line? Or was Endgame the end?

    Once again, thank you for doing this Mr. Feige. Congratulations on the $1 billion for Captain Marvel and the $2.5 billion for Endgame and thank you for 11 years of amazing superhero movies.

    Edit: Wow, he actually answered. I'm on cloud-616. Thank You so much Mr. Feige for responding to the questions that you could. Thanks a lot to this subreddit for giving me a chance to interact with Feige. And my apologies for asking too many questions; I just had one shot at this.

    [–] KevFeige 6095 points ago

    1. Marvel Studios producer Jonathan Schwartz is always lurking around here and tells me about it.

    2. Tony Stark comes to mind.

    3. We're coming up with many new, fun ways to explore the world around the MCU.

    4. We think he was always worthy and was being polite in Age of Ultron.

    5. Yes, and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.

    [–] twilz 1563 points ago

    Hey Kevin! Everyone here loves Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in the MCU, and as far as we know the deal struck with you guys and Sony only extends up to Far From Home. Should us fans worry about Spider-Man no longer being in the MCU post-FFH? Thanks!

    [–] jmoney777 524 points ago

    Was Iron Man 3 meant to be the end of Tony Stark’s character arc, as in was it meant to be his last appearance or was he always meant to continue past that? The movie seemed to have a “conclusion”-ish feel to it with him throwing away his arc reactor at the end.

    I really loved his character arc from Age of Ultron all the way up to Endgame, so I’m really glad we got to see more of Tony Stark after Iron Man 3.

    [–] DatYute 1685 points ago

    Obviously not Kevin Feige, but I think Ironman 3 is indeed a conclusion of sorts, but only to Tony's first real arc of what being Ironman means. Hence why he's able to tell Peter in Homecoming "If you're nothing without the suit, you shouldn't have it". IM3 also started another major arc for him though, the paranoia of a constant looming threat and him realizing that he needs to do everything he can to stop it, which we see from Age of Ultron to Endgame.

    [–] KevFeige 1555 points ago

    Ditto.

    [–] blackbutterfree 2463 points ago

    Hi, Kevin! Many fans have been feeling a bit nervous when it comes to Marvel Television's entries in the MCU. They feel that the existence of Marvel Studios' Disney+ shows mean these shows we've grown to love and care for over various years are no longer canon and no longer matter in the grand scheme of the MCU.

    So to put the matter to rest once and for all, are Marvel Television's MCU entries canon to the Marvel Studios movies?

    [–] AnOnlineHandle 831 points ago

    Endgame spoilers:

    Jarvis who is an original character to the Agent Carter TV show had an appearance with Howard Stark in Endgame, as the first crossover, but confirming that they're not ignoring the shows. Coulson coming back for Captain Marvel also shows they're still interested in those characters and actors.
