Disney Fires Marvel’s Marketing Department?

Deadline is reporting that Disney has let Marvel's marketing department go. The people affected are Dana Precious, EVP of Worldwide Marketing for Marvel Studios, Jeffrey Stewart, VP of Worldwide Marketing and Jodi Miller, Manager of Worldwide Marketing.

The site says: "The official line on why Marvel’s marketing team was let go is that Disney will be taking over that function and handling the releases of The Avengers and future Marvel movies themselves. In fact I’ve learned that Marvel will bring in someone in a “project management role”. But Kevin Feige’s continued supervision of all things Marvel should resolve any doubts by fanboys that Disney will screw around or screw up the comic book films."

Marvel Studios' relationship with Paramount Pictures ended after the release of Captain America: The First Avenger, though we're still trying to get an answer as to why this teaser poster for The Avengers has the Paramount logo.
