With Kevin Feige of Marvel Studios taking an overall leadership approach to Marvel in general, the various divisions are being tightened up and reorganized a bit. The one taking the biggest hit is Marvel Television, which has produced a lot of very memorable animated works over the years but struggled with many of live-action works, particularly once Marvel Studios was underway and there was a bit of a wall between the two entities.
Marvel TV under Jeph Loeb had a lot of projects going on, including the Netflix series that ended recently, and they had recently announced several new projects including animated works for Hulu.
But, as we’ve seen with other properties, they’ve been slowly but surely shuttered over the last few months, with Runaways bringing out its third and final season while Cloak & Dagger didn’t get a third season renewal. The only one that’s really seemingly moving forward is Helstrom after we learned that Ghost Rider wouldn’t move forward. With Marvel Studios working a lot of shows for Disney+, it makes a lot of sense to bring it all under one house and Jeph Loeb was not going to be a part of that. So the remaining projects are largely being shuttered that might show up as one and done things depending on how far along they are.
Some staffing from Marvel TV will head to Marvel Studios to help transition things, which from all appearances is just Helstrom and the final season of Agents of SHIELD that’s coming up.
“The decision has been made to complete Marvel TV projects that are currently in production, but not continue with any further development,” noted the TV division Tuesday.
Essentially, some hard pain in the short term to bring everything under a more singular vision of creative control and interconnectivity that Marvel fans are looking for when it comes to their live-action side.
