It’s been revealed that Kevin Feige will no longer be the head of Marvel’s TV shows on Disney Plus, which sounds bad, but really, it isn’t.
It was revealed by The Hollywood Reporter that Brad Winderbaum has been promoted to the position of Head of Streaming, Television, and Animation at Marvel Studios.
Winderbaum has actually been around Marvel for quite some time.
He’s been part of Marvel since 2007 and that’s a good thing.
Winderbaum is now the executive producer on the new What If…? series and that’s proven to be quite the success.
I really loved the first episode of the show, and it sounds like the next two will also be really good.

Here’s what Brad Winderbaum had to say about What If…?:
We prioritized performance over sound-alikes. We were trying to find people who could deliver some real depth to the voice acting beyond just sounding like an emulation.
The show did come under some criticism for not asking Dave Bautista to voice Drax in the series.
Dave Bautista revealed this fact via Twitter and he sounded pretty pissed off about the whole thing.
Also, the news that Winderbaum has been promoted does not mean that Kevin Feige is on his way out.
It’s actually the opposite.
