The industry publication Variety is reporting that Marvel Studios is leaving Manhattan Beach for office space near the Walt Disney Creative Campus in Glendale -- bringing Spider-Man and Thor closer to their Mickey Mouse counterparts.

Marvel Animation Studios, which is already located in Glendale, has reportedly been beefing up as the two studios begin work on new television projects. As many as 150 staffers will be affected by the company's move to Glendale, which is near some of its other division offices, according to Variety.

Marvel Studios has enjoyed a string of box office successes with the "Iron Man," "Thor," "Captain America" and "The Avengers" film franchises.
