The shift from independence to total ownership by Walt Disney Studios has not been easy for Marvel, apparently. Certainly not for Marvel boss Kevin Feige, who was very, very close to quitting completely during the production period for Captain America: Civil War, according to THR.
THR continues that budgeting concerns are at the forefront of the Marvel vs Disney disputes, with the massive cast rostrum of Captain America: Civil War pushing up costs dramatically to a level that Marvel may not be comfortable with.
Comic Book comments on the situation:
Aside from the coincidental civil war within Marvel over Civil War's budget, the report speculates on what changes, if any, the industry should expect with Marvel Studios' new direct line of contact. Their sources are mixed on this point, with some expecting little to no changes and others thinking they'll ease up a bit on the purse strings - and the contract demands. Of course, those contract demands, like getting Samuel L. Jackson to sign a 9 movie contract for a couple minutes of post-credit screentime, have proved the backbone of the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far.
