Comic Book Jobs: Marvel Studios Interns

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Movies, Marvel Comics,

Deadpool Team UpMarvel Studios, the movie-and-TV division of the vast Marvel Comics empire, is on the prowl for a new season’s worth of interns.

These are part-time, unpaid positions, 20-30 hours per week and involve things like script coverage, internet and comic book research, “typical office duties,” and quick errands (I’m guessing coffee, dry cleaning and picking up comics at the LCS on Wednesdays).

But since this is part of Marvel, you’ll be reading early scripts for Marvel’s upcoming movies and shows, reading comic books and surfing the interwebs. How bad can any of that be?

Marvel Studios is responsible for for the Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four movies, as well as the upcoming Avengers and Thor so there's really no cooler place to want to work right now. Departments looking for interns include: Film Development, Marketing, Legal, Animation and Interactive.

The offices are located in beautiful (and sunny) Beverly Hills, California and you “must be living in the area during their internship.”

Marvel expects a “proficiency in the Adobe Suite (Acrobat, Photoshop, Illustrator) and Microsoft Office (Word, Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint)” but then who doesn’t these days?

There’s no mention of college credit, but it’s pretty standard to get something like that out of an unpaid internship.

Good luck, internshippers!
