The Clearance department of Marvel Studios handles many aspects of legal clearances, including those
related to production, marketing and distribution of films and other content released theatrically and
via Disney+. The Clearance department reads and analyzes scripts and research reports to identify
potential clearance issues and ensure appropriate clearance of names and places, dialogue, artwork,
props, costumes, photographs, film/TV clips, mock-up designs, and building/architectural designs. They
negotiate agreements with outside parties controlling rights to artwork, photography, footage, and
other proprietary material used in Marvel Studios content.

The Clearance department advises content production staff (e.g., producers, writers, art departments,
set decorators, prop masters, costumers, editors, visual effects, animators) of clearance procedures. In
connection therewith, they also review dailies, rough and final cuts of films, websites, bonus content,
behind the scenes/EPK materials, interviews, bloopers, deleted scenes, trailers, TV spots and other
marketing materials, commercial tie-ins, print ads, DVD menus and packaging materials.

The Clearance Coordinator will be a vital part of the Marvel Studios Clearances department, providing
day-to-day support to the Director and Manager of the Clearances department, managing workflows
and processes in connection with the production clearance needs of live action theatrical motion
