Marvel’s Kevin Feige & DC’s Geoff Johns Recall Meeting For Comic-Con

Geoff Johns DC Kevin Feige Marvel
Fun fact – the two people leading the charge creatively on the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Kevin Feige) and the DC Extended Universe (Geoff Johns) were both interns working for Superman: The Movie director Richard Donner. The two are still good friends after all these years, and a short video of Feige and Johns recalling one of the times they visited Comic-Con has just been released.

The short video, recorded by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, features the Marvel and DC creative leaders discussing anecdotes from their past as interns, with Johns pitching in a story about how Feige built a shed at the top of their apartment for his Star Trek toys – yes, really.

If you needed proof that the Marvel and DC “war” is nothing but a construct made by overzealous fans, you can see it here. Feige and Johns are total bros, from the looks of things, and as long as they’re able to keep bringing their characters to life in a way that’s satisfying, that counts more than what movie made more or which character is cooler.

Justice League unites on November 17, 2017. The superhero epic features a cast that includes Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne (Batman), Henry Cavill as Kal-El/Clark Kent (Superman), Gal Gadot as Diana Prince (Wonder Woman), Jason Mamoa as Orin/Arthur Curry (Aquaman), Ezra Miller as Barry Allen (The Flash), Ray Fisher as Victor Stone (Cyborg), Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Robin Wright as General Antiope, J. K. Simmons as Commissioner James ‘Jim’ Gordon, Joe Morton as Dr. Silas Stone, Amber Heard as Mera, Billy Crudup as Dr. Henry Allen, and Kiersey Clemons as Iris West. Julian Lewis Jones and Michael McElhatton are also in the movie in unspecified roles.

5 Ways Marvel Studios Could Follow & Top ‘Infinity War’

Previous1 of 6

Marvel Studios
Marvel Studios has been building towards a massive confrontation with Thanos since 2012 in The Avengers.  Now that Earth’s Mightest Heroes, and the Guardians of the Galaxy, are finally gearing up to take him down, it seems Marvel is in a bit of a quandary. Obviously they’re not going to just give up on the most successful film franchise of all time, so where do they go from there?

Well, comic fans, you’ve come to the right place for answers. Marvel has a lot of stories to choose from over their 75 year history, but not all of them are right for the big screen. Also, some of our favorite Marvel characters, like Wolverine or the Fantastic Four, have their film rights owned by rival studios, meaning we shouldn’t expect to see them team up with Iron Man or Captain America any time soon.

So, hit the Next button to find out what Marvel Studios should do after Avengers: Infinity War!

    While people are busy arguing in comment sections, these two are cashing huge checks. Good for them, keep it coming, and maybe work together on something. I’m sure they could come up with something amazing with their own original ideas.

    • James Delorian

      I dunno about Feige, he is more an overseer than a storyteller himself, but I’d love to see a Johns independent title.
      Not gonna happen though, not with how busy he is. Maybe a few decades down the line when he gets old and drops a few titles from his resumé.

      And there it is! Thanks for providing additional proof. There’s no evidence that Marvel and DC’s creative forces are actually trying to sabotage one another for supremacy in a shared market. All it is – and all that it has been – are fans throwing stones at one another. It’s the silliness of the console wars all over again.

        You’ve left out a key piece here aside from creators and fans: the online movie blogs/press. It serves them to drum up this imaginary ‘war’ because it helps them keep the lights on.
