Marvel Boss Kevin Feige has labelled Black Panther‘s Golden Globe nomination the most important victory the studio has ever had.
Black Panther was an undeniably huge victory for Marvel. The movie was a cultural colossus and raked in an incredible amount of money in the process. But where does it stack up against other Marvel successes?
Well, with the film now recognised at the Golden Globes, Kevin Feige says that the film is “certainly the most important victory we’ve ever had.”
Speaking to MTV at the Golden Globes, Feige went on to say: “We have high expectations, we spend a lot of money on these movies, we put a lot of time into these movies, we believe in them and expect them to do well that we can do another one. That it had the cultural impact it had is what is most meaningful. This is my first time at the Globes. That Black Panther has the power to bring Marvel to the Golden Globes is pretty exciting.”
