Marvel movie’s success is has four core principles:

(2) Grasp a stable core.

(3) Need for challenging the formula.

(4) Foster customers’ curiosity. 

Marvel Studios believes in granting directors majority of control in areas where they have the most experience. In order to balance the ideas, new talents and voices which are brought into each movie, the Marvel studio holds on to a tiny percentage of people from one to the next. The support and footing provided by them allows Marvel to maintain continuity among products and to give birth to an attractive community for fresh talent.
