Cort Lane has recently taken on a newly-created position at Marvel as Senior Vice President, Animation & Family Entertainment. As a life-long Marvel fan, Lane is thrilled to develop and produce shows within the rich Marvel Universe. Drawing on a wealth of experience in entertainment, interactive media and marketing for children, Lane is well positioned to lead Marvel’s expanding slate of kid and family-targeted productions and co-productions in both animation and live-action. Additionally, he provides story consultation and guidance for programs and products in consumer products, interactive, live events and Disney parks.


Most recently he has developed and co-exec produced ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN, MARVEL’S AVENGERS ASSEMBLE, HULK AND THE AGENTS OF S.M.A.S.H. and the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY animated series and shorts. He has also co-executive produced the animated specials LEGO MARVEL SUPER HEROES: MAXIMUM OVERLOAD and LEGO MARVEL SUPER HEROES: AVENGERS REASSEMBLED. Lane also collaborated with partners on MARVEL DISK WARS: THE AVENGERS (from Toei & Bandai) and the live-action LOS VENGADORES EN ACCION (from Disney Channel Spain). In 2014 he received the Cynopsis Kids Animation Innovator award. 


Previously, Lane served as Vice President, Animation Development & Partnerships (and before that as Director of Animation Development) working on co-productions of IRON MAN: ARMORED ADVENTURES and MARVEL ANIME: IRON MAN, WOLVERINE, X-MEN & BLADE, as well as developing and supervising production on THE SUPER HERO SQUAD SHOW.


Prior to joining Marvel in 2008, Lane spent seven years at Mattel producing animated, live-action and interactive entertainment across brands like Barbie, Hot Wheels and Fisher-Price. His period at Mattel includes several productions, including supervising Universal Home Entertainment’s BARBIE IN A CHRISTMAS CAROL and developing MONSTER HIGH.
