    Marvel surprise cancels Dr. Strange title

    What Kevin Feige Taking Over Marvel Means For Comics

    Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige's promotion to Chief Creative Officer of Marvel makes sense for film and TV - but what about Comics?

    Kevin Feige seems determined to prove just how high one Hollywood producer can ascend, with Marvel hitching every one of their entertainment properties to his leadership. That's the new reality and corporate structure governing the Disney brand, with reports claiming Kevin Feige now controls Marvel's creative vision.

    It had previously been reported that Feige's Marvel Studios would be handling TV as well, but in his new role as Chief Creative Officer of Marvel, it seems the creative leads across Marvel's many channels will be reporting to Feige directly. That means Marvel Studios, Marvel Television, and Marvel Comics. While the promotion makes perfect sense given the success of the MCU, and the new Marvel shows coming to Disney+... what the heck does it mean for Marvel Comics? Fans may be surprised, so let's break down just what is changing for comic readers in the near future.
