Kevin Feige has assembled the Avengers and created perhaps the most successful franchise in cinematic history and now his role at Marvel Studios is getting even bigger. The studio’s president will reportedly soon be adding the title of Chief Creative Officer, according to Deadline.
- The structural change will mean all of Marvel’s creative executives will no report to Feige.
- This means Feige’s oversight will extend from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the overall creative direction of Marvel as a whole, including Marvel TV and Marvel Family Entertainment, which will now fall under Feige’s Marvel Studios.
- According to Variety, Feige will also now oversee publishing.
- The move is not yet official but will reportedly be finalized this week.
- The move comes at a time in which the production of Marvel television series for other platforms has wound down as the company prepares to produce new Marvel-themed series for Disney+.
- After the move, Dan Buckley will remain President of Marvel Entertainment and Ike Perlmutter will remain Chairman.
- There is no word yet on what this move means for Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb.
