: "For the English cricketer, see Bob Gale (cricketer)"Michael Robert "Bob" Gale (May 25, 1951, University City, Missouri, United States), is an Academy Award-nominated screenwriter who co-wrote the science fiction film "Back to the Future" with writing partner Robert Zemeckis, and the screen plays for the film's two sequels. Gale also coproduced all three films. He is married and although he considers himself a St. Louisan at heart, he currently lives in the Los Angeles area. As a teen, he created his own comic books ("The Green Vomit") using spirit duplication, and also co-founded a popular comic book club in St. Louis. Later, he made his own amateur three-film series with his brother Charles Gale, parodies of the Republic Pictures Commando Cody serials (using the character name "Commando Cus"), the last two of which also in collaboration with his friend the late Richard Rosenberg. (Rosenberg had taken over the series with the third, "Commando Cus vs. Kung Fu Killers" ((1973)), in which Gale made a cameo appearance as the title character without his face-covering helmet, and was working on a fourth at the time of his death.) A reference to these was included in the "Back to the Future" films, as "Cusco Industries", the employer of the future Marty McFly. Gale received a B.A. in Cinema from the University of Southern California in 1973, where he wrote fanzine reviews for classmate Mike Glyer's first fanzine, and met classmate Zemeckis. As scriptwriters, the two have collaborated on films including "1941", "I Wanna Hold Your Hand", "Used Cars", and "Trespass", the last set in East St. Louis, Illinois near Gale's home town. In 2002, Gale debuted as a feature-film director with "Interstate 60". He had previously directed, as well as written, the 45-minute theatrical release "Mr. Payback: An Interactive Movie" Gale has also written for comics, including Marvel Comics' "Ant-Man"'s Big Christmas and DC Comics' "Batman", and wrote the novelization for his movie "1941" plus helped develop the arcade game Tattoo Assassins.

In 2001, he had a short run on Marvel Comics' Daredevil, writing issues #20-25 of Volume 2. Working with artists Phil Winslade and David Ross, they created the story arc "Playing to the Camera." Writer-painter David Mack contributed covers to the run.

Gale is currently one of the four writers on the Amazing Spider-Man by Marvel Comics. The title ships three times a month and features rotating writer/artist teams. Phil Jiminez will be the artist teamed up with Gale.
