During the filming of Captain America: Civil War in 2015, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige & Marvel Entertainment CEO Isaac "Ike" Perlmutter had many disagreements. Some of them had to do with differences between the creative committee, while others had to do with the film's budget. It was reported by THR late last year that it was "several years of frustration" between the two, before Kevin Feige finally decided to break free from Ike's control. A close source stated the following about the situation. "Everybody knows Ike is difficult. This has been a long time coming. Kevin has grown his entire career under Ike and now it just makes sense."

Since the tension came to head during the filming of the third Captain America film, you'd only expect Feige and Ike's "Civil War" to affect the Russo Brothers in some way. During a new interview with THR, Joe Russo elaborated on the dispute, and revealed how Feige was absorbing the pain. "We've been on that [Marvel] journey from Winter Soldier, and it may have been some story points from Civil War that caused the civil war within Marvel. I think that there were years when Kevin was absorbing the pain inflicted on the company." Since the split, Joe says that the company is "much healthier, happier," and it allowed them to make "really compelling choices." 

With the success of Captain America: Civil War, we all look ahead to Marvel's next film Dr. Strange (directed by Scott Derrickson), which is set to hit theaters on November 4, 2016. Following that is James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which will blast on to the big screen on May 5, 2017. What do you think about the Civil War between the execs at Marvel Studios? Do you think it was the best move to separate? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
