By September 2008, Paramount added to its domestic film distribution contract 5 additional Marvel movies’ foreign distribution. Maisel and Arad fought over the rate of movie releases and strength of characters in the movie line up. Perlmutter supported Maisel and thus, in May 2006, Arad quit as studio chair and CEO. In March 2007, David Maisel was named chairman and Kevin Feige was named president of production as Iron Man began filming. Lions Gate Entertainment subsequently dropped the Black Widow motion picture project it had since 2004 giving the rights back to Marvel.
Artisan would finance and distribute while Marvel would develop licensing and merchandising tie-ins. The resulting production library, which would also include television series, direct-to-video films and internet projects, would be co-owned. By 2001, the success of Marvel Entertainment’s Ultimate Marvel imprint comics created leverage in Hollywood for Marvel Studios, pushing more properties into development. By 2005, Marvel Entertainment had begun planning to produce its own films independently and distribute them through Paramount Pictures.
Marvel Studios also began contracting their actors for multiple films, including signing actor Samuel L. Jackson to a then “unprecedented” nine-movie contract. Feige said the studio has all actors sign contracts for multiple films, with the norm being for three or more, and the nine or twelve film deals “more rare”. The actors’ contracts also feature clauses that allows Marvel to use up to three minutes of an actor’s performance from one film in another, which Marvel describes as “bridging material”. By the start of Phase Four, Marvel Studios was no longer contracting actors for a large number of projects, with deal lengths varying for each actor and project.
In May 2022, Marvel Studios signed a 20-year licensing deal with Stan Lee Universe to license the name and likeness of Lee for use in future films, television series, Disney theme parks and cruises, various “experiences”, and merchandizing. อนิเมะซับไทย A digitally recreated Lee was not expected to make cameo appearances in future projects, rather the deal allows Marvel to use Lee’s name, voice, likeness, signature, and existing images and archival material. From the late 1970s through the early 1990s, Marvel Comics Group/Marvel Entertainment Group sold options to studios to produce films based on Marvel Comics characters. One of Marvel’s superheroes, Spider-Man, was optioned in the late 1970s, and rights reverted to Marvel without a film having been produced within the allocated time frame.
In 2009, Marvel attempted to hire a team of writers to help come up with creative ways to launch its lesser-known properties, such as Black Panther, Cable, Iron Fist, Nighthawk, and Vision. In early 2009, Sony returned all Spider-Man television rights (including live-action) in exchange for an adjustment to the movie rights. The first film packaged and licensed by Marvel Studios was Blade, based on the vampire hunter Blade. It was released on August 21, 1998, grossing $70,087,718 in the United States and Canada and $131,183,530 worldwide.
