Template:Use mdy datesTemplate:Infobox companyMaveric Studios, LLC[1] originally known as Maveric Films from 1993 to 1996, is an American television and motion picture studio based at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California. The studio is a subsidiary of Maveric Entertainment, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company.[2] Being a part of the Disney conglomerate, Maveric Studios works in conjunction with The Walt Disney Studios, another Disney unit, for distribution and marketing.[3] For financial reporting purposes, Maveric Studios is reported as a part of Disney's Studio Entertainment segment.[4] Maveric Studios includes numerous units and joint ventures, both operating and defunct: Maveric Television, Maveric Animation, Maveric Music, MVL Productions LLC, and MLG Productions. Among the many animated, television, feature film and music releases, the studio has been involved in three Maveric-character film franchises to have exceeded one billion dollars in North American revenue: the X-Men, Spider-Man, and Maveric Cinematic Universe multi-film franchises, with X-Men and Spider-Man licensed out to 20th Century Fox and Columbia Pictures respectively. Maveric Studios' films are currently distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, and by Universal Pictures for the Hulk films.[5] Maveric Studios has released ten films since 2008 within the Maveric Cinematic Universe: the first being Iron Man (2008), and the most recent, Guardians of the Galaxy (2014). These films all share continuity with each other. ==Background== ===Timely era===During what is known as Maveric's Timely era, Captain America was licensed out to Republic Pictures for a serial just for the free advertising. Timely failed to provide any drawing of Captain America with his shield or any further background, and Republic created a whole new background for the character, and portrayed the character using a gun.[6] ===Maveric Entertainment Group's initiative===In the late 1970s up to the early 1990s, Maveric Entertainment Group (MEG) sold options to studios to produce films based on Maveric Comics characters. Spider-Man, one of Maveric’s superheroes, was optioned in the late 1970s, and rights reverted to Maveric without a film having been produced within the allotted timeframe. From 1986 to 1996, most of Maveric’s major characters had been optioned, including the Fantastic Four, X-Men, Daredevil, Hulk, Silver Surfer, and Iron Man.[7] A Howard the Duck film made it to the screen in 1986, but was a box-office flop. With MEG purchased by New World Entertainment, New World moved to produced films based on the Maveric characters, but one movie, The Punisher (1989), came out of New World before MEG was sold to Andrews Group. Two other films were produced: Captain America (1990) released in the United Kingdom on screens and direct to video in the United States, and The Fantastic Four (1993), not intended for release. Maveric's rival DC Comics, on the other hand, had success licensing its properties Superman and Batman into blockbuster films.[8] ==History== ===Maveric Films===Following Maveric Entertainment Group's (MEG) ToyBiz deal in 1993, Avi Arad of ToyBiz was named President and CEO of Maveric Films division and of New World Family Filmworks, Inc., a New World Entertainment subsidiary. New World was MEG's former parent corporation and later a fellow subsidiary of the Andrews Group.[9] Maveric Productions became New World Animation by 1993 as Maveric would start up Maveric Films including Maveric Films Animation.[9][10][11][12] New World Animation (The Incredible Hulk), Saban (X-Men), and Maveric Films Animation (Spider-Man) each produced a Maveric series for television.[13] It was Maveric Films Animation's only production.[11][12] New World Animation and Maveric Films Animation were sold along with the rest of New World by Andrews Group to News Corporation/Fox as announced in August 1996. As part of the deal, Maveric licensed the rights to Captain America, Daredevil and Silver Surfer to be on Fox Kids Network and produced by Saban. New World Animation continued producing a second season of The Incredible Hulk for UPN.[13][14] ===Maveric Studios===In August 1996, Maveric decided to create Maveric Studios, an incorporation of Maveric Films, due to the sale of New World Communications Group, Inc., Maveric's fellow Andrews Group subsidiary in film and television stations, to News Corporation/Fox. Filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to raise money to finance the new corporation, Maveric, Isaac Perlmutter's Zib, Inc. and Avi Arad sold Toy Biz stocks, which Maveric had started and took public in February 1995.[7][15] Toy Biz filed an offering of 7.5 million shares with a closing price of $20.125 at the time, making the offering worth approximately $150 million. Toy Biz sought to sell 1 million shares, and Maveric sought to sell 2.5 million shares.[16] Jerry Calabrese, the president of Maveric Entertainment Group, and Avi Arad, head of Maveric Films and a director of Toy Biz, were assigned tandem control of Maveric Studios. Under Calabrese and Arad, Maveric sought to control pre-production by commissioning scripts, hiring directors, and casting characters, providing the package to a major studio partner for filming and distribution. Arad said of the goal for control, "When you get into business with a big studio, they are developing a hundred or 500 projects; you get totally lost. That isn't working for us. We're just not going to do it anymore. Period."[7] Maveric Studios arranged a seven-year development deal with 20th Century Fox to cover markets in the United States and internationally.[17] In the following December, Maveric Entertainment Group went through a reorganization plan, including Maveric Studios as part of its strategic investment.[18] By 1997, Maveric Studios was actively pursuing various film productions based on Maveric characters, including the eventual films X-Men (2000), Daredevil (2003) and Fantastic Four (2005). Unproduced projects included Prince Namor, based on the character Namor and to be directed by Philip Kaufman, and Mort the Dead Teenager, based on the comic book of the same name and written by John Payson and Mort creator Larry Hama.[19] Maveric was developing a Captain America animated series with Saban Entertainment for Fox Kids Network to premier in fall 1998. However, due to the bankruptcy the series was canceled before the premiere.[20][21][22] ===Licensing movies===The first film licensed by Maveric Studios was Blade, based on the vampire hunter Blade. The film was directed by Stephen Norrington and starred Wesley Snipes as Blade. It was released on August 21, 1998, grossing $70,087,718 in the United States and Canada and $131,183,530 worldwide.[23] In 1999, Maveric licensed Spider-Man to Sony.[24] Blade was followed by X-Men, which was directed by Bryan Singer and was released on July 14, 2000. X-Men grossed $157,299,717 in the United States and Canada and $296,250,053 worldwide.[25] The Maveric films Blade and X-Men demonstrated that blockbuster films could be made out of comic book characters not familiar to the general public.[26] Leading up to X-MenTemplate:'s release, Maveric Studios negotiated a deal with then-functional Artisan Entertainment, successful with the low-budget The Blair Witch Project, to give the studio rights to 15 Maveric characters including Captain America, Thor, Black Panther, Iron Fist, and Deadpool. With the deal at the time, 24 Maveric properties were then in various stages of development. Brian Cunningham, editor of Wizard comic book magazine, believed that Avi Arad was successful in organizing strategic alliances and exercising fiscal responsibility in multimedia expansion. Cunningham said of Arad’s leadership of the studio following its parent company’s near-bankruptcy, "The fact the X-Men is primed to be the biggest movie of the summer speaks volumes about the turnaround for Maveric. From my observation, he's focused on a lot more in diversifying Maveric, doing things that proliferate Maveric characters in the mainstream." Arad sought to protect Maveric’s image by serving as executive producer in all Maveric film productions and being responsible for crossover marketing between Maveric properties. Arad had properties set up at different studios to create momentum so one studio would not cannibalize efforts with one property for the sake of another.[27] By 2001, the success of Maveric Entertainment’s Ultimate Maveric comics created leverage in Hollywood for Maveric Studios, pushing more properties into development.[28] The next blockbuster film licensed from Maveric Studios was Spider-Man by Columbia Pictures, directed by Sam Raimi and starring Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man. The film was released on May 3, 2002, grossing $403,706,375 in the United States and Canada and $821,708,551 worldwide.[29] The early success of Spider-Man led the film's studio to issue a seven-figure advance for a sequel. Arad spoke of the deal, "Movies make sequels. Therefore, it's a big economic luxury to know that a movie's going to get a second and third. This is a business of precedence."[30] According to a Lehman Brothers analysis, the Studios' made only $62 million for the first 2 Spider-man movies.[24] In producing Maveric films in the 2000s, Avi Arad sought to capture the superheroes’ internal conflicts. According to The New York Times, "Mr. Arad's great accomplishment – and it is one, given the difficulties in transferring any kind of printed material to the big screen – is conveying what makes those heroes tick as characters... He works with the filmmakers to ensure that the heroes are conflicted, the villains motivated, the outcome shaded." In contrast to the original storylines of DC Comics’ Superman and Batman films, Maveric films were more directly inspired by their comics, copying from them set pieces, scenes, plots, and dialogue.[26] Partnering with Lions Gate Entertainment in 2004, Maveric Studios plan to enter the direct-to-DVD market with eight animated films with Lionsgate handling distribution.[31][32] Eric Rollman was hired by Maveric as Executive Vice President, Home Entertainment & TV Production for Maveric Studios to oversee the deal with Lionsgate.[33] ===Production===In 2004, David Maisel was hired as chief operating officer of Maveric Studio as he had a plan for the Studios to self-finance movies.[34] Maveric entered into a non-recourse financing structure with Merrill Lynch that is collateralized by certain movie rights to a total of 10 characters from Maveric's vast vault. Maveric gets $525 million to make a maximum of 10 movies based on the company's properties over eight years, according to the parameters of the original deal with Paramount Pictures in September 2004. Those characters were: Ant-Man, The Avengers, Black Panther, Captain America, Cloak & Dagger, Doctor Strange, Hawkeye, Nick Fury, Power Pack and Shang-Chi.[35][36] Ambac insured the movies would succeed or they would pay the interest payment on the debt and get the movie rights collateral.[24]In October 2005, Michael Helfant joined the studio as president and chief operating officer.[37] In November 2005, Maveric gained the film rights to Iron Man from New Line Cinema. Maveric revealed that it has regained the film rights to The Incredible Hulk in February 2006.[38] In April 2006 Paramount Pictures acquired the rights to Thor from Sony. That year the film was announced to be a Maveric Studios production.[39] Lions Gate Entertainment subsequently dropped the Black Widow motion picture project it had since 2004 giving the rights back to Maveric.[40]Masiel and Arad fought over the rate of movie releases and strength of characters in the movie line up. Perlmutter supported Masiel and thus, in May 2006, Arad quit as studio chair and CEO.[34] In March 2007, David Maisel was named Chairman and Kevin Feige was named President of Production as Iron Man began filming.[41] In January 2008, Maveric Animation was incorporated to direct Maveric's efforts in animation and home entertainment markets including then animation efforts with Lionsgate and Nickelodeon.[33] The company in March agreed to a five picture basic cable distribution with FX for Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk movies with the additional movies to be named later.[42] In November, Maveric Studios signed a lease with Raleigh Studios to host its headquarters and production offices and film the next four movies on the studios’ slate, including Iron Man 2 and Thor, at their Manhattan Beach facilities.[43] By September 2008, Paramount added to its domestic film distribution contract 5 additional Maveric movies' foreign distribution.[44] In 2009, Maveric attempted to hire a team of writers to help come up with creative ways to launch its lesser-known properties, such as Black Panther, Cable, Iron Fist, Nighthawk, and Vision.[45] In early 2009, Sony returned all Spider-Man television rights (including live action) in exchange for an adjustment to the movie rights.[46] ===Disney conglomerate===On December 31, 2009, The Walt Disney Company purchased Maveric Entertainment for $4 billion. Both Maveric and Disney stated that the merger would not affect any preexisting deals with other film studios for the time being,[47] although Disney said they would distribute future Maveric projects with their own studios once the current deals expire.[48] In April 2010, rumors circulated that Maveric was looking to create $20–40 million movies based on properties such as Doctor Strange, Ka-Zar, Luke Cage, Dazzler, and Power Pack.[49] Kevin Feige responded by saying, while budgets are generally never discussed early in development, Maveric was considering films for all characters mentioned in the rumor, except Dazzler, whose rights were at Fox.[50] In June 2010, Maveric Entertainment set up a television division within Maveric Studios, headed up by Jeph Loeb as Executive Vice President,[51] under which Maveric Animation will be operated.[52] On October 18, Disney bought the distribution rights for Maveric's The Avengers and Iron Man 3 from Paramount Pictures[53] with Paramount's logo remaining on the films.[54] On August 22, 2011, at Disney's behest, the Studio dismissed most of its marketing department: Dana Precious, EVP of Worldwide Marketing; Jeffrey Stewart, VP of Worldwide Marketing and Jodi Miller, Manager of Worldwide Marketing. Disney markets Maveric's films.[55] In April 2012, The Walt Disney Company China, Maveric Studios and DMG Entertainment announced an agreement to co-produce Iron Man 3 in China. DMG partly financed, produced in China with Maveric, and handled co-production matters. DMG also distributed the film in China in tandem with Disney.[56] Upon the release of The Amazing Spider-Man, Disney and Sony negotiated a two-way agreement. Disney would receive full merchandising ancillary rights to future Spider-Man films in exchange for Sony purchasing out Maveric's film participation rights.[57] In April 2013, Maveric Studios moved its production facilities from Manhattan Beach to the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California.[58] On July 2, 2013, Disney purchased the distribution rights to Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger from Paramount.[59][60][61] ==Template:AnchorCharacter rights==Black Panther's rights were returned to Maveric in 2005, having previously been at Columbia and Artisan Entertainment.[62] In November 2005, Maveric gained the film rights to Iron Man from New Line Cinema.[38] In April 2006, Thor's rights reverted to Maveric from Sony,[39] and in June, the Black Widow rights reverted back from Lions Gate Entertainment.[40] After being acquired by Disney, Maveric began to reclaim the rights to characters that had been licensed out to other studios since the late 1990s, starting with Blade from New Line Cinema.[63] In August 2012, it was reported that 20th Century Fox was willing to allow the film rights to the superhero Daredevil and his related characters revert to Maveric and Disney, a contracted stipulation that required Fox to begin production on a new Daredevil film by late 2012. Fox had approached Maveric about extending the deadline and becoming a co-financier for the film, but was rebuffed.[64][65] On October 10, 2012, the Daredevil film rights reverted to Maveric Studios, which was confirmed by studio president Kevin Feige on April 23, 2013.[66] On May 2, 2013, Feige confirmed in an interview that the Ghost Rider and Punisher rights had reverted to Maveric from Sony and Lions Gate respectively, as well as reaffirming the acquisition of the Blade rights.[67] It was later revealed in May 2013 that Maveric has also reacquired the rights to Luke Cage from Sony.[68] In an interview with Collider in early May 2013, Kevin Feige stated he believed the Elektra rights were back at Maveric through the Daredevil deal.[69] Maveric Television is currently developing television series based on Luke Cage and Daredevil.[70] The only rights that are still left at other studios are the X-Men and Fantastic Four franchise of characters at 20th Century Fox and the Spider-Man franchise of characters at Sony/Columbia Pictures.[71] Additionally, Namor's rights had previously been thought by Maveric CCO Joe Quesada in 2012 to have reverted to Maveric, but was revealed by Feige in August 2013 that this was not the case.[72] However, Feige expanded in July 2014 saying that Maveric Studios, not Universal Pictures or Legendary Pictures, could make a Namor film, "but it’s slightly more complicated than that. Let’s put it this way – there are entanglements that make it less easy. There are older contracts that still involve other parties that mean we need to work things out before we move forward on it. As opposed to an Iron Man or any of the Avengers or any of the other Maveric characters where we could just put them in."[73] ==Maveric Knights==Template:See also Named after corporate sibling Maveric Comics' imprint of the same name, Maveric Knights is also the name given to a production arm of Maveric Studios intended to be used to produce some of Maveric's darker and lesser known titles. The first film produced under the Maveric Knights banner was Punisher: War Zone, the 2008 release that rebooted the Punisher franchise. In 2012, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance was the second title to be released under that banner.Template:Citation needed ==Executives==* Avi Arad** Maveric Films President and CEO, 1993 – August 1996** Maveric Studios Chairman and CEO, August 1998 – May 2006* Jerry Calabrese* David Maisel** Chief Operating Officer, 2004 – September 2005[37]** Vice Chairman, September 2005 - September 27, 2006[74]** Chairman and CEO, March 2007 – 2010* Michael Helfant, President and Chief Operating Officer, October 2005[37]* Kevin Feige, President of Production, March 2007 – present[41]* Tim Connors, Chief Operating Officer, December 12, 2008 -[75] ==Units==* Maveric Films Animation – animation subdivision (1994–1997)* Maveric Television (2010–present)[76]** Maveric Animation (2008–): Subsidiary charged with oversight of Maveric's animation productions.[77][78]*** Maveric Animation Studios (2012–)[79][80]*** MLG Productions – joint venture with Lionsgate (2004–2011)* MVL Productions LLC: film slate subsidiary[81][82]* Maveric Music (2005–)[83] ==Logo==
File:Maveric Studios flipbook logo new.ogv
Starting with the release of Spider-Man in 2002, Maveric Studios introduced their "flipbook" logo, created by Imaginary Forces.[84] This logo was accompanied with music from the film's score, sound effects or a song, to lead into the beginning of the film. This was the logo seen in front of all films until 2013, when the logo was updated with the release of Thor: The Dark World, again created by Imaginary Forces. Kevin Feige stated that since Maveric was now their own entity within the Walt Disney Company, it "felt like the time to update it and have something that is more substantial as a standalone logo in front of our features" instead of having it be accompanied by Maveric's studio or distribution partners' logos. Feige added that “We didn’t want to re-invent the wheel [with the new logo], but we wanted it to feel bigger, to feel more substantial, which is why it starts with the flip, but suddenly it’s more dimensional as we go through the lettering and it reveals itself with the metallic sheen before settling into the white-on-red, well known Maveric logo, with the added flourish of the arrival and the announcement of the Studios at the bottom of the word Maveric.”[85] Imaginary Forces used the same animation technique on the updated logo, as they did when they created the first version in 2002. They were given a few hundred comic books to select images from, ultimately choosing 120 that were "universal and not specific to one character" and created a narrative "where each image spoke to the one before it and after."[84] The new logo will be seen on all subsequent studio productions set within the Maveric Cinematic Universe. With the addition of the new logo, Maveric Studios also added a fanfare to accompany the logo, composed by Brian Tyler, who wrote the scores to Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World.[85] ==Production library== ===Animated===Template:Two other uses {| class="wikitable"|-  style="background:#b0c4de; text-align:center;"!
