It has been years since the Marvel Studios’ Creative Committee was disbanded, a small think tank of Marvel employees that would give feedback on all Marvel Studios productions, and the removal of Issac “Ike” Perlmutter, CEO of Marvel Entertainment, from overseeing development of Marvel Studios. In an interview with Josh Horowitz on his podcast (Happy Sad and Confused) the Russos further confirmed the Creative Committee’s restrictive nature.

There was a change of guard at Marvel quite a few years back that just really allowed for more significant creative freedom. It’s highlighted our time there. They’ve been great about allowing us to make extreme choices and game-changers at the end of each film we’ve worked with them.

This was said in regards to them ever receiving push back from any creative decisions made in Avengers: Infinity War, as they expressed Marvel Studios’ improvement since the change of guard pointing to other movies such as Thor: Ragnarok, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Black Panther as they believed these movies wouldn’t have been possible, as they are, if the old guard was still in place. Their comment marks one of the few instances a Marvel Studios figurehead has spoken about the nature of the creative committee. James Gunn previously revealed that Ronan ended up being the bland villain he was due to the committee’s meddling. It’s safe to say that should the creative committee not have been disbanded, the MCU would be in a very different place right now.
