Disney Buys Out Marvel


Okay, this isn't a bad move on Disney or Marvel's part but the news is freaking big. According to the New York Times, it turns out that the people over at Disney have just bought Marvel for 4 BILLION DOLLARS! The Marvel guys must be ecstatic and jumping all over with giddy excitement about this one.

Disney CEO Bob Iger has gone on record to say that Disney probably won't touch certain Marvel properties that are currently being in development on film, however, Disney's plans to exploit lesser known characters within the Marvel universe as well as to be the future sole propierter and distrubtor of any Marvel related movie.

So if Disney owns both Pixar and Marvel; I'm guessing that in the future there will be a Marvel related movie made by Pixar which will be FUCKING BITCHIN! One can only wonder what Disney plan to do with Marvel in the next few years. Perhaps we'll see Marvel theme park rides at Disneyland? Maybe they'll try to interject Disney characters into the comics? Who knows?

The winners of this deal are both parties. Goddamn.

  1. Hmmm but my idea of Disney that they make everything corny and PG-ish... Not that I know anything about film, ha.
