With so many superhero films dominating the box-office and the film conversation, there’s also been the obvious talk of ‘superhero fatigue’. The talk has been there for years now, even as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to climb new box-office heights.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige spoke Variety this week and says all that talk is poppycock, and he has $17.5 billion in global box office in global box-office success to prove him right:
“Not only has there not been the quote-unquote superhero fatigue that people have been asking me about since years before ‘Iron Man,’ but here we are having our biggest year ever. Our instincts have always guided us, and the successes have always just encouraged us to keep following those instincts.”
Marvel Studios has “Captain Marvel,” “Avengers: Endgame” and “Spider-Man: Far From Home” coming in 2019, and later this year are expected to announce their future plans for the next few years.
