Way back before he was leading Marvel Studios to unprecedented box office success, Kevin Feige started out as an intern for X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner and her husband, Superman: The Movie director Richard Donner. Feige then became Lauren Shuler Donner’s assistant before she gave him his first producing job as an associate producer on the X-Men (2000).
That film helped kickstart the modern superhero movie boom that has only grown over the better part of the past two decades. Just as impressive is the fact that the X-Men franchise that began in 2000 is still running. One the few things eluding the X-Men franchise is the chance for the world famous mutants to interact with The Avengers and other characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As Lauren Shuler Donner tells Vanity Fair, she hopes to one day work with Kevin Feige again and make that dream a reality.
