Marvel Studios, LLC is a movie studio within Walt Disney Studios. It was founded in 1993, as Marvel Films, by Avi Arad, ToyBiz, and Marvel Entertainment Group. In 1996, the name was changed to its current one. Arad stayed president until 2006, when Kevin Feige took over.

Paramount Pictures had been contracted for distribution for the films from 2008-2013, when Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures took over due to The Walt Disney Company having bought Marvel Entertainment in 2009. Marvel Studios marked the end of this partnership by designing a new logo for itself and accompanying fanfare for the first time (Disney is always acknowledged quietly by the end credits), by Brian Tyler, introduced in Thor: The Dark World. By 2016, the logo was redesigned a second time with a new fanfare by Michael Giacchino. Also in 2016, the traditional fanfare was replaced with a rearranged score of the 1967 Spider-Man cartoon theme song, again by Giacchino, for Spider-Man: Homecoming.

From 2008-2015, there was a Marvel Creative Committee created to keep integrity to its movies, but actually ended up being a roadblock for filmmakers, and Fiege had "frustration" over having to get all major decisions approved by Marvel Entertainment CEO Ike Perlmutter. Disney announced that Fiege would answer to the chairman of Walt Disney Studios Pictures, Alan Horn, wanting all film divisions (including Pixar and Lucasfilm) to be under their oversight. Although Perlmutter still has approval over Marvel Television.
