Marvel boss Kevin Feige has addressed the rumours that he is set to become further involved in the Star Wars franchise.

Beyond his Marvel duties, Feige has been confirmed to produce a Star Wars movie in the coming years.

Besides the forthcoming film, however, rumours have circulated suggesting that Feige had been secretly involved behind the scenes on projects such as The Mandalorian, and that the Marvel boss may assist on more projects in the future.

Feige shut down the rumours when the speculation was brought up in a recent interview with Collider.

Answering whether he has involved in anything related to Star Wars beyond the movie he is producing, Feige answered: “Not at all.”

His untitled Star Wars film, which is yet to be given a release date, has recently attached writer Michael Waldron, who has previously worked on Marvel productions such as Loki and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Feige has been the Marvel Studios president since 2007, serving as the primary producer and creator of films within the Marvel Cinematic Universe since his appointment.
