Disney Fires Controversial Marvel Chairman Ike Perlmutter
Disney has fired Marvel Entertainment’s controversial chairman Ike Perlmutter to cut costs after his failed attempt to shake up the company’s board.
Per The New York Times, Perlmutter learned the news on Wednesday morning by phone. According to the report, Disney decided to fold Marvel Entertainment, a separate entity from Marvel Studios that focuses on consumer products, into larger business units in the company. This comes anonymously from two Disney Executives that agreed to discuss the matter. This comes days after Disney began laying off approximately 7,000 employees to improve Disney’s financial gains with a $5.5 billion cut.
REPORT: Jonathan Majors’ Marvel Studios Future Is Still Undecided
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania star Jonathan Majors’ future within the Marvel Cinematic Universe is currently up in the air, with Marvel Studios reportedly weighing its options following the actor’s recent criminal charges.
According to industry insider Jeff Sneider of The Hot Mic podcast, Marvel Studios executives are deliberating the next steps to take following Majors’ highly-publicized arrest, which led to the actor being arraigned on assault and harassment charges. Evidently, the company has yet to reach a decision on the matter. “I’ve heard that Marvel hasn’t made any decisions regarding Jonathan Majors but they’ve met with or spoken to his agent to discuss potential options going forward,” Sneider said.
