These changes come at a time when Disney CEO, Bob Iger, has expressed concerns that Marvel’s overproduction of series has “diluted” the overall quality, suggesting that there will be a reduction in the number of annual titles from the company. A few months ago, the executive declared at the Sun Valley Conference (via Variety)
(Marvel) hadn’t been in the TV business at any significant level. Not only did they increase their film output, but they ended up doing several TV series and, frankly, they diluted the focus and attention. I think that is more the cause (of failure) than anything else.
When did Marvel Studios start producing TV series?
Originally, Marvel’s film and television productions were more interconnected, but over time, the two divisions began to operate more independently, leading to a more conspicuous separation. The TV division, Marvel Television, created several series that were theoretically part of the UCM, such as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 100%, Daredevil- 76%, Jessica Jones- 69%, Luke Cage- 78%, Iron Fist – fifty%, The Punisher- 60% and The Defenders – 74%. Although these referenced events and characters from the films, the reciprocity was minimal to non-existent, leading fans to question their canonicity.
This separation became even clearer when Kevin Feige, the architect of the MCU in cinema, was named Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer in 2019, taking control of all divisions of the company, including television. Shortly thereafter, Marvel Television was absorbed into Marvel Studios, marking the reunification of the film and television divisions.
Since this structural change, new television series have been produced directly by Marvel Studios and are firmly anchored in continuity. strings like WandaVision – 95%, Falcon and the Winter Soldier – 97%, Lokiand hawkeye Not only are they canon, but they also have a direct impact on the MCU movies. The reunification of the divisions has allowed for stronger narrative coherence and established future television series as relevant to the overall plot of the franchise as the movies. Now, instead of being an add-on or some kind of ‘parallel universe’, the Marvel Studios TV series are central to understanding the full arc of the MCU.
