While Kevin Feige has been the head of Marvel Studios with the MCU films, Marvel TV has been spearheaded by Jeph Loeb, who's given us shows like Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter, and Daredevil. With Disney promoting Feige to oversee every creative outlet of Marvel from comics to television, word has it that Loeb is officially exiting Marvel TV.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Loeb is currently working on a transition plan that would have him out of the network by Thanksgiving. Apparently Loeb had been planning to leave even before it was announced that Feige would be Marvel's chief creative officer.

While the movies have been box office powerhouses, there has always been a clear divide of quality when it comes to Marvel TV. Sure Marvel TV gets to reference the MCU, but the movies have not even once acknowledged the TV universe. If anything, the only Marvel TV character to ever crossover to the films is James D'Arcy, who played the Stark butler Jarvis in both Agent Carter then Avengers: Endgame.

For now, Marvel TV is looking at a clean slate with shows like The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Loki, and WandaVision. We don't have release windows for these, but we should also expect Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, and Moon Knight to hit Disney+ as well.

While Feige has been given a crazy amount of power by Disney, I'm sure he'll open up the brand to some new and exciting things. Hopefully, we get some more mature series that don't have to be so Disney-esque.

The first Marvel miniseries, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, comes out in the fall of 2020. Disney+ launches on Nov. 12.
