Kevin Feige Explains Why MCU Projects Have Different Tones From One Another

Kevin Feige Reveals Marvel Is Readying MCU Plans For the Next Decade

Ever since the Infinity Saga ended in 2019, Marvel Studios turned over a new page with their gigantic Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was time to set up a new universe, one that doesn’t have Tony Stark and Steve Rogers, but still has numerous heroes that have already been or will be introduced into the canon of the franchise.

But one thing that caught the fans’ eye is how every movie seems different now. Black Widow was a spy movie, Shang-Chi was a fighting movie, Moon Knight was an adventure series, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was sort of a horror movie, upcoming Ms. Marvel will be a teen series, etc. The president of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige now explains how Phase 4 projects are so different from one another.

“That’s always the intention, is that the Marvel Studios logo doesn’t promise a particular group of characters and a particular exact tone. It promises a spirit and a style and a vibe and an emotion, I hope. And it’s perfect timing to go from Moon Knight to Ms. Marvel, specifically because they’re so unique and so different with Multiverse of Madness and Love and Thunder on either end of that. That is what makes Marvel in publishing and now in the MCU so unique, is being able to see all of those different tones and styles and characters. So I like very much that people say, ‘Look, they’re all different.’ Because that’s how we always feel about them and always want them to feel.” — Kevin Feige (via The Direct)

The fact is that Phase 4 of the MCU is something that Marvel fans aren’t used to. The upcoming Ms. Marvel series is set to premiere tomorrow, June 8, and it will be interesting to see how the fans will react to it because this definitely isn’t Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, or something like that. Ms. Marvel is described as a teen series about a teenage superhero fan who will become a superhero herself.

“A great student, an avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, she has a special affinity for superheroes, particularly Captain Marvel. But Kamala struggles to fit in at home and at school—that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life is easier with superpowers, right?” — Ms. Marvel, official synopsis

Starring Iman Vellani, Ms. Marvel will premiere tomorrow, June 8, exclusively on Disney+.
