In an exclusive interview with Empire, Louis D’Esposito, Co-President of Marvel Studios, admitted,

“If we just stayed on top, that would have been the worst thing that could have happened to us. We took a little hit, we’re coming back strong.”

Recognizing the need for a course correction, D’Esposito revealed Marvel’s plans to limit future projects.

“Maybe when you do too much, you dilute yourself a little bit. We’re not going to do that anymore. We learned our lesson. Maybe two to three films a year and one or two shows, as opposed to doing four films and four shows.”
