Marvel Studios Chairman David Maisel to Step Down
The studio head will step down after the Disney acquisitions complete, leaving Kevin Feige as Marvel’s main guy in Disney relations.
Maisel was the guy who helped Marvel raise the money between 2004 and 2007 to start producing their own movies, and is a huge factor behind the success of movies like Iron Man and plans for the Avengers franchise. He was also instrumental in the Disney deal, being a former Disney executive and getting talks started between the companies. Maisel will remain as executive producer on Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America while he pursues other opportunities.
