Kevin Feige: MCU will Always be Funny Instead of Dark

Apparently, fans keep asking Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige which upcoming Marvel film will be the one that takes the MCU in a darker direction. The question came up again for Feige at a post-Ultron screening Q&A.

One certainly couldn’t be blamed for imagining the MCU getting a bit more serious or ominous with storylines like Civil War and Infinity War on the horizon. But Feige assures fans that Marvel is going to steer clear of the grim and gritty, a la DC superhero movies.

From a redditor covering the event: “There is no dark turn in the MCU. He says every year fans come up to him and ask him if this movie is when the MCU goes “dark” or takes a “dark” turn. He said while the trailers may seem ominous or have a sense of impending doom, the movies do not have that feel, and will not. He said he “Hoped people would catch on by now” – there will be no giant dark turns in the MCU where it then continues to head in that direction. The humor is in the DNA of the movies, there are no plans to change that.

Does that mean that there won’t be terrible events, gravitas, or dark turns? No. It just means that they’ll never lose the humor, and that the way Marvel is currently headed is the way they currently plan on staying headed. No ‘sharp turns’ in their movie – making strategy.”

Thanks, Kevin. Stick to your guns!
