Marvel President to Report Directly to Disney Boss

A pretty big shakeup has taken place over at Marvel Studios, with the announcement that president Kevin Feige will now report to Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn.

Despite Marvel Studios doing well – understatement of the year – since 2008 under their current regime, reports suggest that Feige had suffered “years of frustration” working under Marvel Entertainment CEO Isaac Perlmutter. And now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Feige – following a complaint to Horn and Disney CEO Bob Iger – will now report directly to Horn.

It remains to be seen if this will mean any major change for Marvel Studios moving forward, though it is thought one of Feige’s main issues with Perlmutter was his micromanagement of his employees.

A Disney spokesman said of the change;

“Marvel Studios is taking the next logical step in its integration with The Walt Disney Studios, joining Pixar and Lucasfilm in centralizing many of its film-related functions in Burbank, with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and co-president Louis D’Esposito continuing to lead the Marvel Studios team reporting to Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn.”

Marvel’s TV arm will continue to come under Perlmutter’s jurisdiction.
