Marvel Entertainment Chairman Isaac Perlmutter’s relationship with Donald Trump includes serving a member of the United States president’s Inauguration committee and reportedly being named one of three individuals authorized to direct policy at the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
After The Walt Disney Company acquired Marvel, Isaac Perlmutter remained the CEO of Marvel Entertainment and continued to oversee the development of Marvel Studios projects until 2015. According to reports, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige grew frustrated working with Isaac Perlmutter, who was alleged to be the principal reason behind the studios’ lack of diversity, and restructuring resulted in Feige reporting directly to Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn.
