Hard to argue with the results.

Time for Marvel fanboys to print some t shirts that say "Perlmutter is my master now."

Stephen Colbert had some director of something at Marvel on his show recently to talk about the new Captain America and my first thought was "Wow, who's basement did he crawl out of".  Seriously, you're going on TV and you can't a single pair of slacks and a decent shirt?  It was weird.

So you were expecting someone who worked at a comic book company to be well dressed and groomed??? These guys spend their off time masturbating to highly sexualized drawings of women pretending that's what their first girlfriend is going to look like. The fact that he was wearing pants is a small miracle.

That just shows he reached the point where his money exceeded the farks he gives about what you think about him or Spider-Man: Brand New Day.

Yah but even video game directors and project managers dress decently for interviews.  Those are the guys you expect to have permanent cheeto stains on their fingers.

I have been pretty pleased with the Marvel films since they started doing them themselves instead of selling the rights. Look at any Iron Man/Thor/Cap movie vs. ANY Hulk movie. If it takes people micro-managing the property to make that happen, then I am all for it.

TFA: He relishes his reputation as secretive and frugal, according to a top executive who has dealt with him: "It's things like, 'Why do you need a new pencil? There's 2 inches left on that one!'"...Perlmutter once complained that journalists at a junket were allowed two sodas each instead of one, and Disney ran out of food at an Avengers media event because of Perlmutter's constraints...

Look, up in the sky -- it's SUPERJEW!

And it was pretty good - but Norton tried to exercise too much control and that pretty much farked any chance of following that line.  I'm happy with the overall direction Marvel is taking with things, and I can't wait for August 1st.

there was an article that came out in 2007 or so that quoted Perlmutter as saying that they are sitting on the most valuable intellectual property in the world and people laughed and laughed, not so much laughing now is there.

Beyond Spider-Man (and maybe Wolverine) the Marvel properties didn't really have the pop culture influence that a lot of other characters carry.  Sure, some people knew who Iron Man is (a guy in a suit of armor) or who Captain America is (he fought Hitler) but probably weren't able to tell you much about them.

The Marvel properties were a massive well of untapped opportunities, but selling people on an Iron Man movie was a big risk.  Getting Robert Downey Jr. into the role was an amazing move that has paid off for them.  Say what you will about some of their methods, but Marvel's casting has been outstanding.

And I'm still impressed at the movie/tv interactions. The lead up to Winter Soldier on AoS was brilliant. AoS was only ok, and then the vision became apparent and everything clicked for a bit. Absolutely genius cross marketing.

Seriously? "Who was Shane Black?"? How old is this talentless rep, 25?

Sounds like the guy is effective, even if he may also be a racist asshole.

I like that the way Marvel Entertainment is handling their franchises pisses off old hollywood though. Cut all the ridiculous spending on bullshiat and pampering and control the vision for your properties. Making an Iron Man movie SHOULD be different than a typical movie.

I had no idea until I looked him up and I'm 28. Look's like he hadn't done much for the better part of 20 years. He's a credited writer on two movies I've seen (lethal weapon and last action hero), and LAH had a ton of credited writers.

So basically you're lampooning a guy for suggesting people might not know the writer of a movie from the late 80s or from a film that grossed $15 million (KKBB). I would bet you $100 that I could go outside and ask the first 100 non-crazy, English speaking people who he was, and no more than 10-15 could identify him and at least 2/3 of those people would say Iron Man.

My first thought. Could this guy be any MORE stereotypically Jewish? Issac Perlmutter from Israel, insanely frugal, xenophobic, and rose to a position of power and influence in the entertainment industry?

My guess is there aren't photos of him because he was the model for "the international Jew" in those white supremacist cartoons.

I was incredibly tempted to get myself a TMNT from there the other day while I was purchasing my step-daughters birthday present.  There wouldn't be a second thought with a Rocket Raccoon. :-)

"Marvel allows itself 24 to 36 months after each movie to exercise its option on actors for additional films. Because of lengthy shoots, actors accustomed to working eight to 12 weeks on a film often are locked in for a year or more. On the TV side, "they not only want a seven-year option deal"


They're trying to return to the old studio contract actor days which Brando supposedly broke up with his methods.
