Ben Affleck worked with Kevin Feige on 2003’s Daredevil movie, which wasn’t a very good movie – it was terrible actually. However, it seemed as though the now-head of Marvel Studios made a lasting impression on the actor.
He recently declared that Fiege is the best movie producer that’s ever lived. And, he might be right. Feige’s done an incredible job with the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, and he’s now looking at making a Star Wars film too.
Ben Affleck things Kevin Feige is the “greatest producer ever lived”
Here’s what Ben Affleck had to say when he was asked which was the best producer he’s ever worked with in his career:
F***ing Kevin Feige is absolutely; you have to say, the greatest producer, most successful producer who ever lived. He’s the only guy in the world who, if he told me, ‘I know what the audience wants! This is what we’re doing!’ I would believe him 100%. That f***er knows his audience like no producer (ever); he’s a genius. Kevin is like a ringmaster at the circus; he knows exactly how much to wink at the audience, exactly when to pull at the heartstrings, exactly when to do the effects, how many jokes, what the sensibility, what the tone is. Because people didn’t know to run away from the pyjamas or embrace it or make it serious.
