Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb, the man behind shows like Agents of SHIELD, is reportedly exiting his position and the company in the coming weeks.
After almost a decade with the company, Loeb is planning his exit according to Variety (https://variety.com/2019/biz/news/kevin-feige-ike-perlmutter-marvel-disney-1203377802/), which broke the news Tuesday morning. Reports state that it's expected he will leave Marvel in the upcoming weeks, looking to make a deal with a new company.
Loeb got his start as the writer for movies like Teen Wolf and Commando before a transition into comic book writing, with his most notable story being Batman: The Long Halloween. From there, Loeb became an executive producer on many Marvel TV shows such as Runaways, Daredevil, Legion, and plenty of the Marvel animated series.
The writer/producer has left his mark on Marvel TV as a whole, even if said shows didn't have a larger tie to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With Disney+ (https://www.cnet.com/news/disney-plus-streaming-service-release-date-price-shows-and-movies-to-expect-hulu-espn-plus-d23/) coming down the road--which includes numerous original series that exist within the MCU (https://www.gamespot.com/gallery/marvel-phase-4-movies-and-tv-shows-all-release-dat/2900-2644/)--this news may come as a bit of a disappointment to fans who know Loeb's work at the company.
