Marvel’s Kevin Feige is getting more to his name. After a structural shift that’s happening behind the scenes at Marvel in the wake of Disney+’s imminent launch, the current Marvel Studios president is looking to add “Chief Creative Officer” to his resume.
Reported by Deadline, the reporting hierarchy will shift ever-so-slightly with Marvel Entertainment’s president, Dan Buckley, in a dual partnership with Feige. That being said, publishing creative/editorial decisions still need to be run through Feige.
It’s no shock Kevin Feige is going to play a larger part in the creative decisions of Marvel’s franchises. He played a vital role in the formation of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man which snuck its way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After its brief stint with Sony, one that almost seemed as though he’d be leaving the MCU for good, he was able to come back and continue his work with Holland and the rest of the crew.
He also mapped out all the series currently planned to hit Disney+, Disney’s paid subscription service. The series which is hitting Disney+ include Winter Soldier, Loki, She-Hulk, Hawkeye, WandaVision, and more. Feige was also prevalent as he had led Marvel into a financial revolution with many – if not all – of his recent films being financial successes.
Disney+ is launching on November 12, 2019.
