Here’s a breakdown of the changes:

  • Movies: The annual film output will be capped at three, potentially dropping to two in some years.
  • TV Series: The number of series will be significantly reduced to two per year.

This streamlining aims to ensure each project receives the necessary focus and resources to meet high-quality standards.


Looking Ahead:

  • Iger expressed excitement for upcoming movies in 2025, followed by a renewed emphasis on Avengers-centric projects.
  • He acknowledged the existing TV series scheduled for release as remnants of a previous volume-focused approach.

Despite the decrease in output, Iger remains confident in Marvel’s future. He highlighted the team’s talent, the strength of existing intellectual property, and the potential of upcoming sequels.


Message from Disney CEO Bob Iger

“Our strong performance in Q2, with adjusted EPS up 30% compared to the prior year, demonstrates we are delivering on our strategic priorities and building for the future,” said Robert A. Iger, Chief Executive Officer, The Walt Disney Company. “Our results were driven in large part by our Experiences segment as well as our streaming business. Importantly, entertainment streaming was profitable for the quarter, and we remain on track to achieve profitability in our combined streaming businesses in Q4.

“Looking at our company as a whole, it’s clear that the turnaround and growth initiatives we set in motion last year have continued to yield positive results. We have a number of highly anticipated theatrical releases arriving over the next few months; our television shows are resonating with audiences and critics alike; ESPN continues to break ratings records as we further its evolution into the preeminent digital sports platform; and we are turbocharging growth in our Experiences business with a number of near- and long-term strategic investments.”

In essence, Marvel Studios is gearing up for a new chapter, prioritizing impactful storytelling over sheer volume.
