Only a few weeks after purchasing animation studio Kombo, Rovio announced that they have hired former Marvel Studios executive vice president David Maisel as a special adviser. Maisel helped launch Marvel Studios which helped lead the way for the company’s purchase by Disney and will be executive producer on all future Angry Birds films.
“I m very honored and excited to join Rovio, and my goal is to help unleash its great potential,” said Maisel. “Rovio has already had amazing success and established a great brand with Angry Birds. The business model, intellectual properties, and the franchise potential of Angry Birds give Rovio the most exciting prospects I have seen in the entertainment business since Marvel in 2003.”
