Disney buys Marvel!

Post by Octane on Mon Aug 31, 2009 7:31 pm

$4 billion investment from Disney.

Stunned. Brain rebooting due to system error.

OMG the implications on that one...

Other comments?

some interesting points:

Everyone knows that this deal is about the movie business, but what about the rest of the Marvel businesses?

Comics fans, in addition to Marvel CEO Ike Perlmutter keeping his job, Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada checked in to let his Twitter followers know that all is well in the comics biz. “Everybody take a deep breath, all your favorite comics remain unchanged and Tom Brevoort remains grouchy.”
MTV speculates about the video game possibilities. Marvel characters in Kingdom Hearts, anyone?
BudgetTravel notes that this sets up an excellent twist in the Theme Park Wars, since Universal Studios Islands of Adventure, featuring Marvel characters, is DisneyWorld’s biggest competition in Orlando.
And what about the toys? As you might expect, there’s not a single mention that I could find anywhere, but MarketWatch points out what those who already read the fine print already knew – all existing licensing deals will be honored but will be reevaluated when they expire. For those keeping track, that means we still have two more years remaining on the Hasbro / Marvel deal.

Longer on Hasbro isn't it? I thought they re-upped another 5 years on that deal.

So my dreams of Dis-vel saying to Mattel 'You've done such a bang up job on the Toy Story figures, we'd like you to do Marvel figures in the DCUC style' is just that - dreams?

As for the comics though (the only OTHER Marvel thing I am passionate about), I trust Joe Q on this - just as WB tends to leave DC alone, Marvel will operate 99.98% independent of Disney's interference in their catalogue and editing.
In my opinion............

I read on another board, someone said they'd pay money to see a movie focused entirely on the hulk smashing through high school musical. I like his style.

I know, and plus an animal having an animal for a pet is just too weird. Another thing, Mickey has no shirt and Donald doesn't wear any pants....... what kind of example to kids is that?
