Disney studio head fired on eve of Avengers debut
Rich Ross, the head of Disney Studios since October 2009, has just been removed from his post. We can’t hope to know what it means—although lots of theories will be floated very soon—but flops like MARS NEEDS MOMS and JOHN CARTER are probably part of it. “Mars killed Rich Ross.” Even the impending mega-colossal worldwide superhit AVENGERS couldn’t save Ross.
We don’t know what this means, exactly, but it’s sure to mean something for Marvel head Kevin Feige and Pixar’s John Lasseter.
