Last week, we learned that Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios would no longer fall under the Marvel Entertainment banner or CEO Ike Perlmutter and instead answer to Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn. It was also revealed that the Marvel Creative Committee, which consulted on the shaping of the Marvel Cinematic Universe had been disbanded.
According to Bleeding Cool, one log on the fire that finally caused this whole situation to blow up was the “failure” of ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ in Disney’s eyes. The movie ending up pulling in $1.4 billion dollars at the box office but that apparently was still not good enough for Disney.
Disney reportedly feels that the movie was a failure. The report says that this "enabled Kevin Feige to use it leverage to push out Isaac Perlmutter, without whom there wouldn’t even be a Marvel Studios. And forced the disbanding of the Marvel Creative Committee a few months ago."
The Hollywood Reporter then chimed in with their sources that say that Feige almost walked away as the President of Marvel Studios over the budget of ‘Captain America: Civil War.’
Leave your thoughts in the comments about how the restructuring of Marvel Studios will affect Marvel Entertainment.
