Kevin Feige Named Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer
From the “House of Ideas” to the “House of Feige.”
Kevin Feige‘s influence within the Marvel world, and Disney, grows as he’s been named the company’s Chief Creative Officer. All of the company’s key creative executives across film and TV will now report to him.
In this role, Feige will be in charge of the creative direction for Marvel’s storytelling. That includes publishing, film, TV, and animation.
Dan Buckley, President of Marvel Entertainment (the comics and more) will report to Feige when it comes to creative/editorial decisions. When it comes to operations, sales, creative services, games, licensing, and events, Buckley will report to Ike Perlmutter who is Marvel’s Chairman. Joe Quesada is expected to remain as the creative lead for Marvel Entertainment and report to Buckley.
In another change, Marvel Television and Marvel Family Entertainment will move under the Marvel Studios banner which Feige runs. That change isn’t unexpected. During recent announcements at San Diego Comic-Con and D23 the television shows, which one would have expected to be under Marvel TV, showed the Marvel Studios banner. This lead to speculation that live-action storytelling as a whole was falling more under Feige’s control.
Fiege will continue to report to Walt Disney Studios co-chairman and chief creative officer Alan Horn and co-chairman Alan Berman.
