Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has added Marvel Chief Creative Officer to his title.
In addition to his responsibilities as Marvel Studios president, Deadline reports Feige will now serve as the Chief Creative Officer of Marvel. According to this report, all executives across film and TV will now report directly to Feige, including Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb. He will also have the overall creative direction of Marvel’s storytelling beyond movies and shows, as he’ll oversee comics too.
From a structural standpoint, Feige will continue to report to Walt Disney Co-Chairman and Chief Creative Officer Alan Horn and Co-Chairman Alan Bergman. Meanwhile, Dan Buckley will continue to serve as President of Marvel TV under chairman Ike Perlmutter for publishing operations, sales, creative services, games, licensing and events, while also reporting to Feige in a creative and editorial capacity. Additionally, Joe Quesada, who has served as Marvel CCO since 2010, will stay on board as a creative lead and report directly to Buckley.
Feige began his tenure with Marvel in 2000 as a producer on X-Men. Since then, he has gone on to establish the Marvel Cinematic Universe for Marvel Studios and Disney, and he’s even developing a brand-new Star Wars movie for the Disney-owned Lucasfilm. However, outside of this new promotion, arguably Feige’s biggest achievement of 2019 is overseeing Avengers: Endgame, which surpassed Avatar to become the highest-grossing movie of all-time.
