About Marvel Comics
- If you had two things, and on one you earned 100% of the revenues from the efforts that you put into making it, and the other you earned a much smaller percentage for the same amount of time and effort, you’d be more likely to concentrate more heavily on the first, wouldn’t you?

- Wired: …what’s the relationship like with the comic book side of the company? Is there back-and-forth?
- Feige: Absolutely. That started on Iron Man.
- Wired: Oh right, with Adi Granov 's designs.
- Feige: That was one of the big ones. We have fans, like myself, who spend a lot of money on three-dimensional statues. Now, look at the state Iron Man was in, even at the high-end, before the movie came out. It may as well have been gold tights, right? But then we lucked out on all of them, right? All of the characters had modern incarnations that proved to be helpful jumping-off points. Adi’s version was that for Iron Man.
- Wired: Sure. And Joe did it for Thor, and Hitch and Neary did Captain America.
- Feige: Yeah, exactly. So we weren’t starting from scratch, from the Jack Kirby designs — which by the way, there would be worse things to start from.

- I fell in love with the notion of movies being a thing that can help us escape and also teach us lessons and make us better people.
- Kevin Feige Marvelous Vision Steve Fisher, Costco Connection, 8/2/18.
- I enjoyed my time at Marvel, and the people there, but it was time to go. I left Marvel because I'd hit the glass ceiling. I was never going to be promoted, so if I intended to make a mark in the business, it would be as a freelance writer, not an editor. Leaving Marvel allowed me to take assignments at several other companies, and ultimately, to help found Milestone.

- I think they’re so complete now, Marvel. They probably don’t need me anymore. But if they needed me? I’d love to. It’s great to be wanted.
- Sam Raimi, Admits he 'messed up' Spider-Man 3, would 'love' another chance, The Week, Scott Meslow, 29 October 2015.
- It's kind of a difference based upon mood and vibe of the material. There's something about the stoic heroes of DC that could be contrasted against the hyperkinetic heroes of Marvel.
- Alex Ross, “Meet the artist who put a realistic spin on comic book superheroes”, CBS News, December 22, 2018.
- It was nice in a way to work with more obscure Marvel characters because then the audience wouldn’t have a strong expectation of what they were going to find. It gives us a lot of creative freedom.
