I spent my “executive time” last night watching The Avengers (2012) on the cable. I haven’t seen it since a midnight screening opening night, but I remembered a few things from it; most of it I’d forgotten, though, and I did nod off in act 2…but I do that almost every night. I was entertained […]

Do you like a mystery? I thought so! Here’s a good one. If you ask anyone around the Hollywood water cooler about who is the envy of tinsel town, most people would say it’s Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige. His handling of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been little short of genius from a box office perspective, taking obscure properties like Guardians of the Galaxy and making them household names, and boosting even mediocre material like Ant-Man to “Hey that was really fun!” reactions. But is this true?
A few weeks back, Kevin Feige had told Collider that Inhumans, last scheduled for 2019, would get shuffled back due to the impact the acquisition of Spider-Man had on Marvel’s plans, along with a sequel to Ant-Man. Now, it’s official, Inhumans is off the release calendar, and there’s no replacement date in sight. This leads […]
Since the announcement of Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige’s move to report to Alan Horn and away from Ike Perlmutter, there’s been talk of little else in the comics movie hot stove league. Now Kim Masters and Borys Kit, two of the best entertainment reporters out there, add a few more fact logs to the […]
While the films under the Marvel Studios banner have proven to be enormously popular with moviegoers (even in what’s presumed to be an “off” year for the studio, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man are both currently in the Top 10 grossing films of 2015), there’s no doubt that there are certain creative difficulties behind the […]
Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige will no longer report to the notoriously difficult Isaac Perlmutter, but instead will report directly to Disney Studios head Alan Horn, a move that will give him much more freedom.
I’m not at D23 this weekend, and I’ll reserve any of the “on the scene” impressions for Beat contributors Alex Jones and Victor Van Scoit, who are both there in person. But that doesn’t mean I won’t report on the biggest announcements that are worthy of attention and discussion, and when it comes to Disney […]
