This article presents information on Avi Arad, chief executive officer of the company Marvel Studios. Arad is the recipient of the Robert W. Selig Showmanship Award for achievement in filmmaking, as of March 23, 2004. Arad's enthusiasm has proven infectious in Hollywood. Marvel Studios has dozens of projects in various stages of development and has been riding a string of box office successes that began with 1998's "Blade" and looks likely to continue with next month's "The Punisher" and summer releases "Spider-Man 2" and "Blade Trinity."
