There's no doubt that as the president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige is one of the most powerful figures in Hollywood.

Over the past 11 years he has stood at the helm of the world's biggest franchise and has been instrumental to its success in becoming the box-office behemoth it is today.

However, despite his influential role, he has maintained a fairly low profile and very rarely grants in-depth interviews. So, when it was announced that he would be participating in a Reddit 'Ask Me Almost Anything' (AMAA), fans leapt at the chance to quiz him about all aspects of the Marvel universe.

Whether it was his favourite characters, biggest creative regrets or the extent of the MCU's planning, it seemed like no stone was left unturned in the search for some juicy MCU gossip.

Although there were some questions, generally about upcoming characters and plotlines, he was unable to answer, fans still managed to get an intriguing look behind-the-scenes of the MCU and even got some popular fan theories confirmed by the man himself.

So, if you've been wondering about Marvel's biggest conflicts with Disney, which characters could be making a return, and even what the upcoming Disney + TV series are set to bring, now is your chance to find out.

Whilst it's not particularly surprising that the plot details of the world's largest cinematic universe are planned far in advance, the level of planning that Feige and co. go to is still extremely impressive.

When asked about this, Feige confirmed that future characters and storylines are planned out at least five years in advance to audiences seeing them appear on the big screen.

He later elaborated further when discussing the choice of the Russo brothers to direct Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.

Stating that the plans for adapting Marvel's Infinity Saga had been in the works ever since the first Avengers film in 2012 and that the Russo's had been effectively signed on to direct since their work on 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Whilst this isn't an earth-shattering revelation in itself, it is an interesting look behind-the-scenes of the MCU and lends some appreciation to the gargantuan effort put in by its production team.
