Reportedly due to “several years of frustration”, the ties between Marvel and Disney are now even tighter as Feige will report directly to Alan Horn, Disney’s studio chief, and bypass having to deal with Perlmutter entirely. This “unhappiness” between Feige and Perlmutter had supposedly been brought straight to both Horn and Disney’s CEO himself, Bob Iger this summer, with the new working arrangement taking effect last week.
