Disney fires Isaac Perlmutter, once an overseer of their Marvel film franchise

Disney's been laying of several thousand employees as a result of the financial disaster they're facing due to their wokeness, and one of the folks they're parting ways with is none other than Isaac Perlmutter, once an overseer of the Marvel movies, as Breitbart reports:
The Walt Disney Co.’s massive round of layoffs has reportedly claimed a high-profile casualty: billionaire Isaac Perlmutter, the chairman of Marvel Entertainment and a major backer of former President Donald Trump.

Isaac “Ike” Perlmutter sold Marvel to Disney in 2009 for $4 billion and stayed on to oversee Marvel’s consumer products division while Kevin Feige headed Marvel Studios, the division that produces blockbuster titles including The Avengers and Black Panther. On Wednesday, 80-year-old Perlmutter was shown the door and will no longer be involved with the Marvel brand, the New York Times first reported.
He may have been a Trump supporter, but he was far from a true fan of Marvel, given how he ran the division over a decade ago, practically enabling the ruination of their comics, and even hiring comic staffers like Brian Bendis, who did much more harm than good to Marvel's creations, to serve on a movie planning committee. For an alleged conservative, Perlmutter did little to win appreciation of the fanbase, and if I'd been simply a moviegoer rather than a comics reader years before, I would've been very embarrassed if I discovered Perlmutter was employing people who sought to devastate the Marvel brand, rather than do their best to keep it entertaining for the right reasons.

So it's hard to feel sorry Perlmutter's been laid off, when he's likely never apologized for granting validity to several of the Marvel writers who brought down the whole comics brand, and producing the movie franchise all at the expense of the comics. It's a terrible shame an alleged conservative did nothing to build confidence of the audience, no matter their political standings. And to think, that Perlmutter was also responsible for selling Marvel to huge conglomerate years before. Some would surely say today that the Marvel publishing arm should've been retired, at least from the kind of format it still goes by in pamphlets, seeing how bad the storytelling became post-2000, and what Perlmutter did was to merely prolong the damage Quesada built up. No wonder Perlmutter's such a letdown.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
