There’s a big rivalry between DC Comics and Marvel fans online, but no such rivalry exists between the presidents of the two movie studios.
DC Films president Geoff Johns and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige worked their way up through Hollywood together, both working for Superman: The Movie director Richard Donner. If fact, the two shared the stage together at an event honoring Donner last week.
“There’s not really a rivalry. The rivalry is much more amongst the press, I think,” Feige explained in a live Facebook interview with AlloCiné.
“Geoff Johns is a very good friend of mine. We grew up together in the business and recently celebrated Richard Donner, who we both used to work for,” he continued. “So, I applaud all the success he has. I really just look at it as a fan. When the movies perform well and are well received, it’s good for us – which is why I’m always rooting for them.”
Feige also praised the success of Wonder Woman, and mentioned the female lead movies that Marvel is working on. You can check out Feige’s comments for yourself in the video below. The Wonder Woman talk is at the 6:50 mark and his comments about DC movies is at 23:27.
