Disney’s Ongoing Battle Against Trian And Nelson Peltz Explained

Peltz was able to mount a serious campaign for board seats by pooling his Disney shares with bitter former Marvel Entertainment honcho Ike Perlmutter. Perlmutter oversaw the development of Marvel Studios’ output until 2015, when Disney opted to have the production head Kevin Feige report directly to company chairman Alan Horn. This decision was based in part on Perlmutter’s alleged racially insensitive comments (when Don Cheadle replaced Terrence Howard in the “Iron Man” franchise, Perlmutter reportedly said “black people look the same”). Finally, in 2023, Disney officially fired Perlmutter from Marvel Entertainment altogether.

Peltz is not Perlmutter, but when it comes to how he might’ve lobbied to change the creative direction of Marvel’s movies, he complained about “woke” movies like “Black Panther” and “The Marvels,” and stated the following (via Variety):

“Why do I have to have a Marvel [movie] that’s all women? Not that I have anything against women, but why do I have to do that? Why can’t I have Marvels that are both? Why do I need an all-Black cast?”

It’s worth noting that these movies are not “all women” and “all-Black.” It should also be noted that Peltz and Perlmutter are vociferous supporters of former President Donald Trump, so honesty clearly isn’t high on their list of virtues.
