A bad day for the Marvel Studios Marketing Department as Deadline is reporting the entire department has been let go.  This includes Dana Precious, EVP of Worldwide Marketing for Marvel’s LA Studios, Jeffrey Stewart, VP of Worldwide Marketing, and Jodi Miller, Manager of Worldwide Marketing.

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.

Bonk! Seems like someone has had enough of someone’s “stuff” and decided to make a clean break while the studio was in between major projects.
