Disney CEO Bob Iger spoke with CNBC in the following video (via NY Times) discussing how well Marvel has performed for them, and how Disney will keep performing up to par.

Iger mentions movies like Frozen and Maleficient, but also mentions that the Marvel Brand has arrived as evidenced by Guardians of the Galaxy, which he notes was a good movie, but also feels Disney's promotion of the movie was a major factor in its success.
