The Walt Disney Company shocked the world with the news that Bob Chapek is succeeding Bob Iger as CEO, effective immediately. We break down the key details from this story, including Iger’s continued role as Executive Chairman leading Disney’s creative endeavors, why Chapek was chosen as CEO, and why this is happening earlier than expected. We also examine what all of this means for Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige, and whether there could be some additional restructuring that might impact Marvel.
