Marvel Studios boss and ace planner Kevin Feige says the close finished deal that will bring Marvel Comics characters like the X-Men and the Fantastic Four into the Disney overlay is “exceptionally energizing.”

“The truth is, I’m excited for all of them. I’m excited, and it’s not just the marquee names you know — there are hundreds of names on those documents, on those agreements,” a giddy Feige told MTV News at Sunday’s Golden Globes when asked which currently Fox-controlled characters he’s most looking forward to integrating into the shared Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“And the fact that Marvel is as close as we may ever get now to having access to all of the characters, is something I’ve been dreaming about for my almost 20 years at Marvel. And it’s very exciting.”

Following Disney’s $71.3 billion procurement of 20th Century Fox, the company will come to have the screen rights for Fox’s assets like Deadpool, X-Men and the Fantastic Four — plans affirmed by Disney CEO Bob Iger, who said in August that recently gained properties like James Cameron’s Avatar and the Marvel offshoots “fit consummately with our arrangement to considerably develop our portfolio.”

In July, Feige conceded he had just “obscure ideas” and not solid anticipates coordinating the prominent properties into the MCU, home to the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther and Spider-Man establishments.

“I have vague dreams and vague ideas. But right now, bringing to life the 10,000-plus characters that Marvel fully controls is what the gameplan is,” Feige said, noting his attention at the time was on the then-just-released Ant-Man and the Wasp as well as 2019’s Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Feige said improvement on the former Fox properties would possibly begin when Marvel is “given the word.”

Last January, Feige demanded Marvel was “not contemplating” properties outside the Disney-possessed studio’s control, even after Fox acknowledged the company’s underlying bid of $52.4 billion.

“We’re focusing on everything we’ve already announced,” Feige said. “If and when the deal actually happens, we’ll start to think more about it. Until then, we have a lot to do.”
