Kevin Feige, PGA (/ˌfɡ/; FY-ghee; born June 2, 1973)[1] is an American film producer and president of Marvel Studios.[2] The films he has produced have a combined worldwide box office gross of $8.3 billion.[3]

Early life[edit]

Feige was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and grew up in Westfield, New Jersey. While attending the University of Southern California, he became an intern for producer Lauren Shuler Donner and then became her assistant after graduation.[3]

Film producer[edit]

On the first X-Men film, Donner made Feige an associate producer, due to his knowledge of the Marvel Universe.[3] Impressing Avi Arad, he was hired to work as his second-in-command at Marvel Studios that same year.[4] Feige was named president of production for Marvel Studios in March 2007.[5]

In November 2012, it was announced that Feige would receive the Motion Picture Showman of the Year award at the ICG Publicists Guild Awards on February 22, 2013. The Awards committee chairman, Henri Bollinger, said "Kevin Feige's understanding and appreciation of publicity and promotion in the role of a movie's success has led to a string of blockbuster feature films adapted from the pages of Marvel comic books during the past 10 years."[6] As of April 2015, his contract with Marvel Studios will end in 2018.[7]
