News broke yesterday that Marvel Films was being reorganized within the Disney company so that President Kevin Feige would report directly to Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn.  While news of a studio reorganization is usually the stuff for entertainment industry publications, this involves beloved geek properties in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and actually has some fantastic consequences for fans of the Marvel films.  Marvel Studios is now free to go after bigger talent for their main roles–we might even have a chance to see Jennifer Lawrence as Captain Marvel!  Jump after the break to find out why it’s now possible!

This week on the podcast, I couldn’t listen to the whole thing because I’m only nine and a half episodes into Daredevil and need to finish it before I finish the podcast.  It happens.  I’m not overly concerned about spoilers, but some geeks are.  Ryan beat me atop the head with a length of rubber hose for mentioning a character in passing appears prominently in one episode, and he needed to be avoided until the red haze of rage passed from his face.  It was the most fun editorial meeting we’ve ever had.

So, it’s time to tell Jenny to pay her Fantastic Four bet.
