Earlier this evening we headed down to the capital of movie glamour that is The Westfield Centre in Shepard’s Bush, for the European Premiere of Avengers Assemble. We’ll be running our full coverage shortly, but we thought you might want to see this as soon as we could get it to you – our interview with Avengers producer, and Marvel Studios head, Kevin Feige.
We managed to snag a good chunk of time with the man, during which I got a little bit carried away, and allowed my combined love of Marvel Comics and character and franchise rights licensing to lead to some of the more technical questions Feige fielded during his time in the UK.
Still, he gave us an idea of what’s planned for the future, as well as some fairly detailed information about when Ant Man will begin filming. He also spoke about just why they chose not to use The Skrulls in the film, as well as answering one of the questions that has plagued me personally, if not fandom in general – just who owns the rights to The Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.
Check out the video below for something of a Marvel Studios infodump.
