Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige recently revealed on the “D23 Inside Disney” podcast (via The Direct) that there was a major meeting between the creative minds at the studio. “There’s interconnectivity there that people have already started to see and suss out and I had a meeting this morning with the whole broad Marvel Studios team going through the multiverse and the rules of the multiverse and exactly how to really deliver on the excitement surrounding the multiverse,” he said.
Feige also noted that one person from the studio is dedicated to overseeing each specific project, while he and producers Louis D’Esposito and Victoria Alonso manage everything. While they try not to interfere, Feige admitted sometimes things need to be changed in specific projects to coincide with one another, to make the overall multiverse story flow properly: “Something will come up one show and we’ll have to sometimes call and say ‘Well, actually, we’ve got to alter this, we’ve got to change that,’ but never to the detriment of the individual projects. If that were to happen, we wouldn’t do it,” he explained.
Up next for the MCU is “Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” and we expect to see some sort of nod to the multiverse there, but it not’s suspected to have an overwhelming effect on the story. While “Eternals” arrives after, we predict a major multiversal storyline in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” as it’s been rumored for months that Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire will reprise their roles as the web-slinger from former flicks. With the multiverse officially open, we now have a concert explanation for this long-standing rumor. Let the madness begin.
