It could be Clea, who is the niece of Dormammu, which is one of Doctor Strange’s greatest enemies. Clea later betrays her uncle and joins forces with Doctor Strange and became his love interest.

Big Shakeup At Marvel Entertainment


There was a big shake up within Marvel Entertainment. Kevin Feige who has produced all of the Marvel movies and is the President of Marvel met with Disney and made it known that he was not happy reporting directly to the current CEO of Marvel Isaac Perlmutter. Now Feige is reporting directly to Disney Pictures President, Alan Horn.It seems that Perlmutter was a thorn in Feige’s side and it sounds like it came to the point where Feige was even considering leaving Marvel. Perlmutter is notorious for being a cheapskate and not providing enough dough for the movies. “Captain America: Civil War” was apparently the breaking point since they were going over budget and Perlmutter didn’t want to release any additional funds to support the movie.

Then there was also the disbandment of the Marvel Creative Team which some are saying was responsible for Edgar Wright leaving Ant-Man. It has Brian Michael Bendis and Joe Quesueda. The following list show the movies that the Creative Team had some input in:

Movies they worked on: Iron Man, Avengers, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Captain America: Civil War.

Movies somewhere in the middle: Hulk, Ant Man, Thor, and Thor: The Dark World.

Movies with little to no input
: Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3, and Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

What is weird about these movies is that it seems that the Creative Team was heavily involved with the best Marvel movies and barely had any input with the lesser ones. What does this mean for the future? We dont know right now but we’ll see what happens after “Captain America: Civil War”.

That’s it for this time!
