Early Life: Kevin Feige was born Kevin Michael Feige on June 2, 1973, in Boston, Massachusetts. He grew up in Westfield, New Jersey, and attended Westfield High School. After graduation, Kevin applied to the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, where his favorite directors, Ron Howard, George Lucas, and Robert Zemeckis, honed their skills, and he was finally accepted after his sixth application. Feige graduated in 1995, and in 2014, he received the Mary Pickford Alumni Award. In 2017, he donated $500,000 to the school, establishing the Kevin Feige Endowed Fund for Creative Producing. In the late 1990s, Kevin worked as an assistant to executive producer Lauren Shuler Donner on the films "You've Got Mail" and "Volcano," and he was hired as a producer at Marvel in 2000.
Career: Kevin's knowledge of Marvel comics led Donner to make him an associate producer on 2000's "X-Men," and later that year, Marvel Studios CEO Avi Arad hired Feige as his second-in-command. Kevin worked as an executive producer (uncredited) on 2002's "Spider-Man" and co-produced 2003's "Daredevil" and "X2: X-Men United," then executive produced "Hulk" (2003), "The Punisher" (2004), "Spider-Man 2" (2004), "Man-Thing" (2005), "Fantastic Four" (2005), and "X-Men: the Last Stand" (2006).

In 2009, The Walt Disney Company acquired Marvel Entertainment for the sum of $4.24 billion.
In 2012, the first film in "The Avengers" franchise was released, and Feige said the idea of "a shared, ongoing, fictional narrative with characters inhabiting the same shared universe" came from the comics, but that "up until 2008, that hadn't been possible in movies." "The Avengers" grossed $1.519 billion at the box office and was followed by 2015's "Avengers: Age of Ultron," 2018's "Avengers: Infinity War," and 2019's "Avengers: Endgame." Kevin produced 2013's "Iron Man 3" and "Thor: The Dark World," 2014's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "Guardians of the Galaxy," 2015's "Ant-Man," and 2016's "Captain America: Civil War" and "Doctor Strange."

In 2019, Feige was named CEO of Marvel Comics, Marvel Animation, and Marvel Television.
