Marvel TV Boss Jeph Loeb Reportedly Leaving The Company
This has apparently been a long time coming.
Jeph Loeb, the head of Marvel TV for almost a decade, is reportedly exiting his position at the company in the upcoming weeks. The man helped put his mark on TV series like Agents of SHIELD, so we're at the end of an era.
After almost a decade with the company, Loeb is planning his exit according to Variety, 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+ coming down the road--which includes numerous original series that exist within the MCU--this news may come as a bit of a disappointment to fans who know Loeb's work at the company.
