Marvel Studios, LLC (originally known as Marvel Films from 1993 to 1996) is an American motion picture studio based at The Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California and is a subsidiary of Walt Disney Studios, itself a wholly owned division of The Walt Disney Company, with film producer Kevin Feige serving as president. Previously, the studio was a subsidiary of Marvel Entertainment until The Walt Disney Company reorganized the companies in August 2015 to be separate entities.

Dedicated to producing films based on Marvel Comics characters, the studio has been involved in three Marvel-character film franchises to have exceeded one billion dollars in North American revenue: the X-Men, Spider-Man, and Marvel Cinematic Universe multi-film franchises. Spider-Man is licensed out to Sony Pictures, however; while Sony underwrites and distributes Spider-Man movies in the MCU, creative input is handled by Marvel Studios. Marvel Studios' films are currently distributed theatrically by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, originally Paramount Pictures from 2008 to 2011. Universal Pictures distributed The Incredible Hulk; and Sony distributed Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home.

In December 2017, Disney made a commitment to acquire the majority of Twenty-First Century Fox's entertainment assets, which include the Fantastic Four and X-Men film rights; the deal closed on March 20, 2019. Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed that there are plans for future for these characters within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Kevin Feige has claimed that they won't commit to any plans until the deal is officially approved by regulators. While Disney has received approval from multiple territories, Marvel will not announce any plans until the deal is approved.


Marvel Studios has released 20 films since 2008 within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, starting with Iron Man in 2008, and two films under the "Marvel Knights" banner for darker and lesser known titles, Punisher: War Zone and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance in 2008 and 2012, respectively. All films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe share continuity with each other, along with the One-Shots produced by the studio and the television shows produced by Marvel Television.
