X-Men The Animated Series Production Company CEO Haim Saban Profile

IMDB Credits: 
118 Composer Credits
71 Producer Credits
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0536805/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1
Most well known for the Power Rangers series but had his hand in numerous film, animated series and sitcoms.
Background
Disappointed in the lack of information available on Haim in the form of researched books or articles for the 232nd richest man in america
However, this is what I was able to find:
Born on October 15th, 1944 in Alexandria, Egypt
Immigrated with his family to Israel in 1956
Was a bass player and band manager starting in 1966 at the age of 18
His band was mildly successful but in 1969 focused on music promotion instead
Haim moved to France in 1970 and used the pseudonym Kussa Mahchi for credits in Saban Entertainment productions
When he moved to the United States in 1983 he began work in the soundtracks for children’s television programs and discovered the gold mine that was there
1988 he founded Saban Entertainment which became best known for Power Rangers but was a juggernaut in children’s programs including X-Men the animated Series
In 1996 Haim merged Saban Entertainment and Fox Kids into Fox Kids Worldwide and made his fortune there
In 1998 he was accused of not actually composing his total 3,700 credits and settled out of court with 10 composers
Haim has gone on to control international television and music distribution and has become a huge political supporter as a one issue interested part (pro-Isreal)

MARVEL STUDIOS WEEKLY NEWS [46:09]

MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE – OTHER STUDIOS

Marvel's Second MCU Film, The Incredible Hulk, Is Finally Streaming - But Not On Disney+
https://www.cbr.com/mcu-incredible-hulk-streaming-hbo-max/
Over a decade after its original release, The Incredible Hulk, the second film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has at last been made available to stream -- only not on the platform many fans might have expected.
While nearly every other MCU movie has found a streaming home on Disney+, HBO Max recently announced that The Incredible Hulk starring Ed Norton, Liv Tyler and Tim Roth will start streaming on its service beginning April 8. The Incredible Hulk now joins Spider-Man: Homecoming, Far From Home and No Way Home as the only MCU films not currently available on Disney+.

Marvel Scrubbed Netflix Credits From Defenders Shows on Disney+… And Fans Noticed
https://www.cbr.com/netflix-disney-plus-defenders-credits-marvel/
A Disney+ viewer notices that the streaming platform has edited out the Netflix logo from the opening credits of Marvel series like Jessica Jones.
Earlier in March, all of Netflix's Marvel shows were removed from the streaming platform, eventually landing on Disney+ on March 16. While watching the Jessica Jones Season 1 episode "A.K.Arrrr. Crush Syndrome" on Disney+, one fan caught that the Netflix name had not been entirely removed from the opening credit sequence, posting it on Reddit. For other episodes of the series and shows like Daredevil and Luke Cage though, these credits have been removed entirely without a trace.

Marvel Studios Developing New Cosmic Project
https://www.cbr.com/marvel-studios-developing-new-cosmic-project/
According to the latest issue of Production Weekly, a trustworthy industry publication that tracks and chronicles films and series in various stages of development, Marvel Studios is beginning work on a new cosmic project. The entry is simply listed as, "Untitled Marvel Space Project" and sports the status of "Development." As can be expected, Marvel Studios President Kevin Fiege is currently listed as the only producer attached to the project. Beyond its existence, nothing else is known about what this mysterious chapter in the MCU will entail.

MARVEL TELEVISION

Avengers: Endgame Almost Featured an Agents of SHIELD Character (Photo)
https://thedirect.com/article/avengers-endgame-agents-of-shield-character-photo
Avengers Endgame Almost Included Marvel TV
Marvel Studios made its first major reference to the television side in Avengers: Endgame. Agent Carter's Edwin Jarvis made a brief cameo as Howard Stark's butler during the 1970s Tesseract segment of the Time Heist, tying those two projects together.
But it seems the same sequence came close to bringing Agents of SHIELD into the picture through Season 2 antagonist Daniel Whitehall. The Hydra boss spent the early days of his career recovering powerful artifacts under the Red Skull before joining him to work on the Tesseract, explaining his link to the Time Heist plans.
Despite being born in 1904, Whitehall retained his middle-aged appearance in the modern-day after using harvesting the DNA and organs of an Inhuman to de-age himself. After causing half a season of trouble for the Agents of SHIELD team, Whitehall was finally shot and killed by Phil Coulson in 2014, meaning he was still alive during the Avengers' first attempt to recover the Tesseract for 2012.
Reed Diamond must have been shocked to receive a call from Marvel to check his availability, given his Hydra villain had been killed off years earlier. Since Whitehall was alive throughout the entire Time Heist, it's anyone's guess where he may have appeared. The Hydra Boss was captured by the SSR in 1945 and held until 1989, meaning he may have been considered for the 1970s SHIELD base scene with the young Peggy Carter, Hank Pym, and Howard Stark.
The scrapped Agents of SHIELD crossover would have left Runaways, Cloak and Dagger, and all five heroes of "The Defenders Saga" as the only major omissions from Avengers: Endgame. Since the blockbuster event was already so packed with heroes, perhaps it was for the best that Marvel didn't try to integrate its many TV fan-favorites into the mix.
Despite Agents of SHIELD's many references to the MCU, Marvel Studios has yet to reference any characters or events from the seven-season epic, leading some to justifiably call its canon status into question. But with the series having just recently made the jump to Disney+, speculation is rife that the SHIELD team could be in for a comeback in the near future.
