No word yet from Bob Iger about who might run Walt Disney Studios after Rich Ross was pushed aside as chairman last month. But the CEO told the Sanford C. Bernstein Strategic Decisions Conference today that his film strategy is “clear.” It includes two animated films a year, one from Pixar and the other from Disney. Soon it could increase to two Pixars and one Disney. In addition, “we intend to make two Marvel films a year and that slate is well defined” for the next few years. Iger says that while “we’ve got a business that has done well on the animated and Marvel front,” the live-action films “have been inconsistent, this year in particular” with a disaster in John Carter and mega-hit with The Avengers. He’ll want the studio’s new management to address that. But Iger’s still keeping expectations modest. “We’re not in the business of making 24 films a year, or more than that.”
