After years of unhappiness under Marvel Entertainment CEO Issac “Ike” Permutter, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige will now report to Disney studio chief Alan Horn. A recognizable name to all geeks and Marvel fanatics, Feige is the man many charge with the critical and commercial success Disney and Marvel have been enjoying since 2008’s Iron Man.
Sources claim the Disney shake-up occured last week after Feige expressed his discontent to both Alan Horn and Disney CEO Bob Iger. This comes after “several years of frustration,” under the notorius Perlmutter.
While Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel’s TV Division will still report to Perlmutter, this move proves how trusted and powerful Kevin Feige really is at Disney. Being the producer of all of Marvel’s films since Iron Man, Feige is an industry giant, who is now big enough to finally break free from Perlmutter’s controlling ways.
