Kevin Feige Named Chief Creative Officer of Marvel
It is crazy to think that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has steered the biggest cinematic universe of all-time, and the Walt Disney Company plans on keeping him around a little longer, with a new title.
According to Deadline, Feige will now take on the title of Chief Creative Officer. That means not only will Feige oversee Marvel on the big screen but Marvel TV and animation generator Marvel Family Entertainment will move under Feige’s Marvel Studios banner.
Feige will continue to report to Walt Disney Studios co-chairman and chief creative officer Alan Horn and co-chairman Alan Bergman. Dan Buckley will remain president of Marvel Entertainment and will report to Feige as well as overseeing publishing operations, sales, creative services, games, licensing and events.
Joe Quesada will remain as executive vice president and creative director for Marvel Entertainment and will report to Buckley. The outlet notes that Feige and his team are currently evaluating current projects as well as those in development on an “individual basis” moving forward.
Along with the cinematic Phase Four and beyond films on the way such as Black Widow, Eternals, Shang-Chi, Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2, Blade, and the soon to be developed X-Men and Fantastic Four, Feige is currently collaborating with Disney+ on multiple live-action shows centering around Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, Vision, and Scarlet Witch, and Hawkeye, with Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel, and She-Hulk all in early development. Marvel Television will seemingly be focused on animated for the immediate future, which includes four adult animated series, namely Howard the Duck, MODOK, Hit-Monkey, and Tigra the Dazzler for Hulu. The four series will then crossover in The Offenders.
Feige is staying busy with the Walt Disney Company as he is also producing a mysterious Star Wars film with Lucasfilm and President Kathleen Kennedy.
