Biography

A self-confessed comic book obsessive, Kevin Feige helped transform Marvel Studios into a Hollywood powerhouse, overseeing a number of billion-dollar film franchises as both a film producer and the company's president. Born in Boston, MA in 1973, Feige grew up in Westfield, NJ where he became hooked on the "Star Wars," "Indiana Jones" and "Back to the Future" trilogies. Following in the footsteps of his hero George Lucas, Feige studied Film at the University of Southern California and went onto land an internship with producer Lauren Shuler Donner where he worked on disaster movie "Volcano" (1997), romantic comedy "You've Got Mail" (1998) and, most significantly, "X-Men" (2000). Marvel Studios founder Avi Arad was so impressed by Feige's understanding of the Marvel Universe on the latter that he hired him as his second-in-command. "Hulk" (2003), "Blade Trinity" (2004) and "Fantastic Four" (2005) were just some of the films Feige added to his list of credits before he was appointed Marvel Studios' President of Production in 2007. Responsible for casting Robert Downey, Jr. in "Iron Man" (2008), the period setting of "Captain America" (2011) and hiring Joss Whedon as director of "The Avengers" (2011), Feige's shrewd decision-making revolutionized the company's fortunes. Feige continued his winning streak with the likes of "Thor" (2011), "Guardians of the Galaxy" (2014) and "Ant-Man" (2015) as well as branching out into television with an executive producer role on "Agent Carter" (ABC, 2015- ).
