wait whats with the marvel person who replaced war machine cause that is the motherfucking reason i dislike iron man 2
His name’s Ike Perlmutter, and he’s been a thorn in the side of Marvel for quite some time, but let’s just talk about how he’s been messing with the movies for now.
Movie-wise, he’s one of the many reasons War Machine was recast, but he’s done other crap like try to shut down any project with Black Widow or Hawkeye (because they’re not as popular as Cap or Iron Man, or something), and has tried to push the Inhumans film for some time, due to Fox owning the rights to the X-Men film series, and them being the closest things they could use as a substitute. He’s also known for being an angry dick, ‘cause at one point they had to take down any posters or art of the Fantastic Four or X-Men, or else Ike would start having a fit and start tearing down the pictures in a screaming rage, because they reminded of Fox. It doesn’t help that another guy at Fox, Tom Rothman (who’s pretty much responsible for nearly every bad decision made on Fox movies between 2001 and 2012, including screwing over the original X-Men trilogy) was an equally giant douche, and with both of them being big names of their respective companies, and how they both hated each other, it seemed like like a crossover with the Fantastic Four or X-Men with the MCU was pretty much an impossibility.
Thankfully, though, much more rational people have taken their places in the movie department. Rothman resigned from Fox in 2012, and after the Disney buyout, the responsibilities of the Marvel Cinematic Universe were taken out of Perlmutter’s care, and were placed into the hands of Kevin Feige. And while Perlmutter is still head of Marvel Entertainment, the MCU is out of his hands, and Feige doesn’t have to report to him anymore (and it helps that Feige used to work for Fox, and is on pretty good terms with them). It also explains why there’s been better quality control with movies than with the comics, but that’s a whole other can of worms I don’t wish to open.
So yeah, the short of it is that Perlmutter’s a douce who I’d like to see step down or get sacked (along with Joe Quesada and Jeph Loeb), but he’s thankfully not in charge of the movies anymore.
