Captain America: The Winter Soldier
He might not be a space Viking or a talking raccoon, but Captain America was almost as tricky a character to bring to the screen in the 21st century as some of his Marvel contemporaries — standing for sincerity and purity in an age of grittiness and irony, and wearing the stars-and-stripes in an age when international box-office is key. As such, the character's first appearance in 2011's "Captain America: The First Avenger," is probably best described as a modest success, both critically (an enjoyably retro first half giving way to a flatter, more formless second), and commercially — at $370 million, it's the second lowest-grossing of the Marvel pictures so far.

With promises that he'll shoot on the fading 35mm film format, and employ a tasteful amount of CGI rather than bombarding our eyeballs with pixels, J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode 7" has one more trick up its sleeve: you'll be able to see it in IMAX.

Kevin Feige's job not only requires him to ensure that the current crop of Marvel movies make it to the big screen the way the studio wants, but he also has to keep an eye on how things are developing on projects years off in the distance. And part of that means trying to stay a step ahead of the competition who are quickly moving to copy the Marvel playbook. One of the big showdowns on the calendar arrives on May 5, 2016 when Warner Bros. will drop their "Man Of Steel" sequel opposite an as-yet-unannounced Marvel movie. But if someone is going to blink and move, it won't be Feige.
