Another day, another Disney firing headline. After yesterday’s farewell of Jeffrey R. Epstein, Vice President of Corporate Communications for Disney, a new heavyweight was in the firing line today. Marvel Entertainment Chairman, Ike Perlmutter, has been let go from his position. Isaac “Ike” Perlmutter, who is the 80-year-old Chairman of the division, was reportedly deemed “redundant,” with a New York Times article confirming it would be “folded into larger Disney business units.”

Though Perlmutter has a long-standing history with Marvel and Disney, most recently, he was instrumental in the shakeup with Nelson Peltz, who unsuccessfully challenged The Walt Disney Company for a seat on the board.
