Tim Connors has ankled his post as chief operating officer of Legendary Entertainment, a year after being hired for the slot from Marvel Studios.

Connors was key in launching the film division of Marvel and was brought on to manage day-to-day operations and business affairs at Legendary, working closely with company president and chief creative officer Jon Jashni.
