Marvel Studios (and Kevin Feige) is absorbing Marvel TV but reportedly it will not have any effect on the shows. Subsequently, the Studios will now be running the (few) Supe shows.
Marvel Studios has officially closed Marvel TV and absorbed it. The Television division ‘was’ the part of Marvel that gave shows like Agents of SHIELD and Daredevil. While this changes the on-screen future of Marvel, it will also change the off-screen one.
A move like this does not come without layoffs.
What’s Scrapped, What’s Staying
Now that Marvel TV is closed, all the shows that are already in production will be absorbed in Marvel Studios. But any future plans that were still taking shape are all scrapped. The television division of Marvel quoted, “The decision has been made to complete Marvel TV projects that are currently in production, but not continue with any further development.”
So, this leaves
- Four adult animated projects (MODOK, Tigra and Dazzler, Howard the Duck and Hit Monkey)
- The very last season (seventh) on Agents of SHIELD
Apart from taking charge of Marvel TV as it’s closed, Marvel Studios has given some of the most amazing TV Series ideas to Disney Plus. TV Series like WandaVision, Loki and Hawkeye could have changed the face of Marvel TV. But Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios chose Disney Plus to move forward in Phase 4.
A Deadline report quoted that “a significant portion of” Marvel TV’s “staff are being laid off” after it is closed. In fact, the report also names some names, “Cort Lane, Marsha Griffin, Mark Ambrose, Tom Lieber, and Aimee Carlson”.
