Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was announced Wednesday as USC’s 140th commencement ceremony speaker.

A 1995 graduate of the USC School of Cinematic Arts, Feige will deliver the keynote address during the university’s commencement ceremony May 12.

“My USC experience played such a fundamental part in who I have become, both as a filmmaker and as a person,” Feige said in a statement released by the university. “Of course, they never have to ask me twice to come back and talk with students, but I’m honored and humbled to be asked to be the commencement speaker celebrating the 2023 graduating class as they carry their own USC experience into the world to do big things as part of the next generation of storytellers and innovators and leaders.”

Feige, 49, serves on the Board of Councilors at the School of Cinematic Arts, and in 2017 he established a fund to support cinema students at USC.

“I’m so excited Kevin Feige is our commencement speaker,” USC President Carol Folt said in a statement. “He’s a creative force: an impresario who builds extraordinary teams and tells magical, diverse stories that captivate people around the world. He sat in the same seats and walked the same paths as so many of our students — and look where his adventure has taken him. I can’t wait to hear his inspiring stories.”
