Kevin Feige’s Super Upgrade in Pacific Palisades (EXCLUSIVE)

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is proper proof there’s a fine future for a lucky handful of comicbook geeks with a head for high-stakes moviemaking and money-minting cross-promotions. It’s no secret among property gossips that the powerful producer, whose action-packed superhero blockbusters have a worldwide box office of more than $8 billion, shelled out $3.175 million for a luxuriously appointed 4,000-square-foot house in a prime Pacific Palisades ’hood back in 2009. Alas, a tried-and-true meme of real estate is that professional success often comes with an uncontrollable urge for an upgrade in residential circumstances, and like many upwardly mobile showbiz execs before him — so swears real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak on her pampered peekapoo — it was Mister Feige and his wife, Caitlin, who quietly coughed up $9.425 million to purchase a 9,000-plus-square-foot mansion in an even swankier nabe just a few miles away.

The newly built abode, described in listing details as Nantucket in style and set tightly on a one-third acre mid-block lot, has a total of seven bedrooms and eight full and two half bathrooms on three floors. Formal living and dining rooms — the former with a marble fireplace — have French doors that open to the front garden, while the kitchen, breakfast room and family room overlook the backyard. Along with at least one bedroom and bathroom, the fully finished basement is fitted and kitted with a walk-in wine room, a workout room, movie theater and a second family room with two built-in televisions and full bar. The backyard has a small swimming pool with inset spa, an outdoor kitchen, outdoor shower, elevated sun deck and just enough lawn for a good-sized jungle gym.
