Longtime fans of Marvel comics will recall seeing Craig Kyle's name as writer on beloved series such as X-FORCE and NEW X-MEN, but more recently Kyle has devoted his time to producing Thor's first two big screen adventures in Marvel's "Thor" and "Thor: The Dark World." Now, Kyle will return to writing once more as he transitions from his role as SVP of Production and Development at Marvel Studios to become a fulltime screenwriter, beginning by co-writing the script to the next installment of Thor with longtime collaborator Christopher Yost.
"I am proud of Craig and have enjoyed working with him over these past years," said Kevin Feige, Producer of "Thor: The Dark World." "His creative instincts have helped shape 'Thor' and 'Thor: The Dark World' at every level of the filmmaking process. The entire team at Marvel is very happy to continue collaborating with Craig as he continues as a screenwriter working with Christopher on the forthcoming chapter of Thor's adventure."
Kyle began his career at Marvel Studios in 2001 as the sole Creative Executive for the company's animation division. In 2003, he co-created the character X-23, an adolescent female clone of Marvel's popular character Wolverine. She was introduced into the comic book mainstream a year later, becoming one of the most popular new characters from Marvel over the last decade. Craig has developed, produced and written numerous animated series and oversaw the development and production of Marvel's original animated direct-to-DVD projects including "Ultimate Avengers: I & II," "Invincible Iron Man," "Hulk VS," "Next Avengers," "Doctor Strange," "Planet Hulk" and "Thor: Tales of Asgard." During his many years with Marvel, Craig co-wrote a series of top selling X-Men comics including NEW X-MEN, X-23: INNOCENCE LOST and X-FORCE with Christopher Yost. Kyle was promoted to SVP of Production and Development of Marvel Studios' live-action division five years ago.
