Kevin Feige reflected on his origin for Playback with Kris Tapley in December. With Avengers: Endgame marking a major shift in the MCU, it is interesting to hear Feige talk about the uncertain beginning of the MCU.

Feige sees this link to the print origins as the key to the MCU’s success. This is a great snapshot of Feige’s logic about why the MCU is successful.
