Dan Buckley Gets Promoted To President Of Marvel Entertainment

Marvel Logo Dan BuckleyIt was revealed today that Dan Buckley, who has been a longtime publisher of Marvel Comics since 2003, has been promoted to the president of Marvel Entertainment. Buckley will still be reporting to Ike Perlmutter who is the CEO of the company.

Buckley began his career with Marvel back in the 90’s when he joined the brand in the international marketing division, later getting promoted to VP of Marketing Services. After a short break with the company, he returned to Marvel in 2003 and became a publisher.

He has also served as an executive producer on multiple animated shows from Marvel such as Avengers Assemble, Guardians of the Galaxy, Ultimate Spider-Man as well as Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.

His TV work also includes live-action shows, with Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage and the upcoming team series, The Defenders. Buckley will also be on the creative team for the upcoming animated series on Disney XD, Marvel’s Spider-Man which will feature Miles Morales and Spider-Gwen along with Peter Parker.

THR states that the promotion is the result of the company wanting to double down on producing more content that isn’t related to the film division. In addition, Buckley’s promotion is the result of his strong multi-tasking management for several platforms.

    No, ’cause why play to your greatest strength?

      Because:

      1) You can’t rely on a one-trick pony. When the luster runs dull on Marvel’s movies (as they are already starting to do in the public’s eyes), then you will need something else to fall back on. Marvel has NEVER had a strong animation product (despite being owned by one of the top animation companies in the world). They have ZERO video game output. Their comics are on the wane. They’re about to lose their 2nd network TV show, & the ones that are coming up do not look like strong replacements. Marvel has never been known for having diverse content, neither in genre, nor in medium.

      2) Probably more importantly, people seem to get amnesia, when it comes to the fact that Marvel is a schismic empire. Even though that demon Perlmutter is still getting his duckies from those Marvel movies (money which he’s sliding directly into Trump’s pocket) despite no longer having any creative say-so in them, his rivalry with Feige is well documented.

      But hey, feel free to ignore all these facts, as you continue to pump all you hard earned salary to Trum–uh, I mean Marvel.
