Young man goes from producer’s assistant on The Avengers to Marvel’s Creative Exec for Iron Man 3.
What’s your role on Iron Man 3 that you’re currently working on?
My prior job on The Avengers, I was assistant to the Executive Producer, but now I’m a Creative Executive. What’s hard to explain about the Creative Exec role is that it’s so different at Marvel, in a good way, than at other studios because Marvel is so tied in with the comics, and the toys, and the merchandise, and Comicon…Part of [my job] is script revisions and keeping the script pages up-to-date. But I love it when I find myself on the phone with Creative Executives from Marvel’s other films, and we’re comparing notes about elements of our scripts — making sure they are honoring the overall Marvel Universe and timeline, keeping each other honest in that way (…).
