Changes at the top

Well, that’s interesting timing.

On the heels of the blockbuster first weekend for “X-Men: The Last Stand,” Marvel Entertainment announced today that Avi Arad is resigning as chairman and CEO of Marvel Studios. But he’ll still be involved in Marvel’s upcoming films, independently producing films for Marvel under his own production company banner, Avi Arad Productions.

I view his continuing connection with Marvel as good news. I’ve talked to him a few times over the years, including way back before the first “X-Men” movie was released. He’s always been a cheerleader for Marvel’s movies, but more importantly, he understands how important it is to remain faithful to the core of a character.
