A former Marvel Studios lawyer has suspiciously declined to touch upon a query about who owns the rights to Hulk.
Paul Sarker is an leisure lawyer who has represented producers, artists, manufacturers and studios. He beforehand labored as a lead manufacturing lawyer for Marvel and shared some perception into the function in an AMA on the Marvel Studios subreddit.
Sarker mentioned his function included overseeing contracts for MCU movies, finalising actor and director offers, managing the visitor lists of premieres and afterparties in addition to engaged on offers to license Marvel characters in leisure facilities and theme parks.
It’s price noting he didn’t make clear when he left the corporate. However he talked about being round throughout San Diego Comedian-Con in 2013 and dealing on movies from Section Two.
A fan within the Reddit AMA requested him which studio owns the rights to the Hulk and Namor characters. In case you weren’t acquainted, Marvel hasn’t made a standalone film for Mark Ruffalo’s imply and inexperienced preventing machine as a result of it doesn’t personal the manufacturing rights, Common Studios does.
So this subsequent tidbit is slightly fascinating: Sarker mentioned he wasn’t positive if he might reply the query, jokingly attributing it to a “concern of getting sniped” by a Marvel government.
One fan famous the very fact Sarker couldn’t reply the query might imply Marvel was in the course of a deal to safe the rights to the characters.
