Jeph Loeb Career


Loeb's debut in filmmaking was his coproduction with Matthew Weisman in determining the script for Teen Wolf. Michael J. starred in the film, which was released on August 23, 1985. Fox is a cable television network. Loeb and Weisman then collaborated on writing Commando's script. Arnold Schwarzenegger was the film's first film to be released on October 4, 1985. Burglar, his next screen credit, was released on March 20, 1987. The plot was based on Lawrence Block's book about fictional burglar Bernie Rhodenbarr. Weisman and Hugh Wilson were his collaborators.

The film was atypical for the time, starring actress Whoopi Goldberg in a female comedic role. Teen Wolf Too, a sequel to Teen Wolf that was co-written by Weisman and Tim Kring, was his second film of the year. On November 20, 1987, the film was first released. Jason Bateman and veteran actor John Astin appeared in the film. Loeb will reteam with Kring almost two decades after the television show Heroes. Loeb was working on a script for The Flash as a Warner Bros. Although the script arrangement fell through, Loeb met then publisher Jenette Kahn who asked Loeb to write a comic book for DC Comics.

Jeph Loeb wrote the script for the episode "Red" in 2002, which introduced Red kryptonite to the series. Since being a supervising producer, he has written many episodes since then. He resigned for three years, and although producers Miles Millar and Alfred Gough promised to keep him on for future seasons, Loeb and his son, who had cancer, were left homeless (see Comics careers below).

During the show's second season, Loeb became a writer/producer on ABC's Lost. Loeb left Lost to become a co-executive producer and writer on the NBC drama Heroes, which his colleague Tim Kring had created. Loeb created the teleplay for the first-season episodes "One Giant Leap" and "Unexpected." The show prominently features Tim Sale's artwork, Loeb's long-serving comics collaborator.

The series was nominated for the 2007 Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series and the Best New Series Award by the Writers Guild of America. It was named as the People's Choice Award for Favorite New TV Drama, as well as the Saturn Award for Best Network Television Series. It was also nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Dramatic Television Series.

On April 22, 2007, Loeb and Tim Kring were awarded the Jules Verne Award for Artistic Achievement at the Jules Verne Festival in Paris, France, for their contributions to Heroes. Loeb himself was also honoured with the 2005 Jules Verne Award for his writing on Smallville, which he had not received before because his son's visit to the Festival had been postponed due to his son's ill health.

Loeb and fellow Heroes co-executive producer Jesse Alexander were no longer employed on the series, according to Daily Variety on November 2, 2008. "As of today, Jesse Alexander and I have left Heroes," Loeb said in a Comic Book Resources interview. I'm incredibly proud to have been a part of the success of eight Emmy nods and a win for this year. I will miss the superb cast and writing staff, and I hope everyone has the best of luck." Loeb had completed writing and directing the third season's "Dual" episode at the time.

Loeb was appointed Executive Vice President, Head of Television of Marvel's newly created Marvel Television, in which Loeb will collaborate with publisher Dan Buckley to produce both live-action and animated shows based on Marvel's catalog of characters on June 28, 2010.

In October 2019, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was appointed to Chief Creative Officer of Marvel Entertainment, which also includes Marvel Television, causing Loeb to leave the company after nearly a decade. Loeb had been considering his departure, however, well before Feige's promotion.

Loeb is best known for his extensive use of narration boxes as monologues to reveal characters' inner thoughts, but character interactions in terms of dialogue are sparse.

Challengers of the Unknown vol. 1 was Jeph Loeb's first comic book. Tim Sale's first appearance on the top of the charts (March -October 1991), which was the first of many collaborations with him. The Legends of the Dark Knight Halloween Specials; Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight Halloween Specials; and Batman: The Long Halloween, a 13-issue limited series, was one of the hero's first three collaborations. The Long Halloween was one of three well-known comics that inspired Batman Begins' 2005 release film Batman Begins, the others being Batman: The Man Who Falls and Batman: Year One. The Superman for All Seasons limited series and Catwoman: When in Rome, there are other Loeb-Sale collaborations.

Loeb co-created the X-Man character with artist Steve Skroce at Marvel Comics in 1995 and co-created the X-Man character. In 1996–1997, Loeb created the "Heroe Reborn" version of Captain America. Tim Sale and Daredevil's Daredevil: Blue, and Hulk: Gray were among Marvel's limited series.

Loeb became a writer for Superman, issue #151 (Dec. 1999). The "Emperor Joker" and "Our Worlds at War" crossovers were among Ed McGuinness' tenure on the title, which were largely drawn by Ed McGuinness. He died with issue #83 (August 2002). Loeb and artist Jim Lee co-created the year-long story arc "Batman: Hush," which launched three lines of toys, posters, and calendars, and remained at the top of the charts for eleven of the twelve months it was available. Loeb and McGuinness's 1999 debut as Superman/Batman. Loeb's run on the title inspired a new ongoing Supergirl series and an animated film based on Loeb's "Public Enemies" story arc.

Loeb began the Red Hulk after signing an exclusive deal with Marvel in September 2005.

In the first issue of the Marvel miniseries Civil War, Loeb selected his hometown, Stamford, Connecticut, to be the subject of superhero destruction, according to the central title of the crossover storyline of the same name. Marvel revealed an untitled Spider-Man series by Loeb and J. Scott Campbell in 2006, which will be released "sometime in 2007." In 2010, the series was eventually cancelled and then restored to its original schedule, with a 2011 story announcing that it is "still being worked on." Campbell confirmed that the scheme had been cancelled in 2021 despite having two entirely pencilled problems.

Jeph created Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America in 2007, which used the five stages of grief as a harbinger of many characters of the Marvel Universe in the aftermath of Captain America's assassination of Assassinated Captain America. The first issue was ranked No. 1 in the United States. One of the most popular products for April 2007 was 1,500, and the fifth and final issue, dated July 4, 2007, was titled "Funeral for Captain America," which was covered by the Associated Press and The Washington Post.

Loeb wrote two miniseries for the Ultimate Marvel Universe. Critics also chastised artist Joe Madureira's work on The Ultimates 3 in 2007 for its use of transgressive sexual and violent content for shock value "without the political significance or epic pacing of the first two volumes." Loeb and artist David Finch appeared in the Ultimatum, a critically redesigned five-issue miniseries. Ultimatum's gratuitous murder scenes permanently damaged sales across the entire Ultimate Universe, bringing about its cancellation in a 2015 Vulture retrospective. "Over the course of just five issues, 34 different heroes and villains were killed, many by gruesome means: Doctor Strange was squeezed until his head burst; Magneto was killed; and the Blob ate the Wasp; and, later, "tastes like chicken." Ultimatum was described as "a base and insulting comic book," critic Jason Kerouac wrote, "Ultimatum #5 may very well be the single worst piece of writing ever written."

Captain America: In 2008, a White limited series was released, but only a #0 issue was released. In September 2015, the long-awaited project was supposed to see print for the first time.

Loeb talks to Geoff Johns and Allan Heinberg about his writing studio, The Empath Magic Tree House.
