    Yikes... I would say something about the mouse screwing up a bunch of my childhood hero's movies, but Marvel did a pretty good job of that themselves.... :angry_devil: :deadpool: :wolverine: :hulk:

    I'd be slightly pissed if this deal goes through. I mean what does Disney know about MARVEL or even superheros to begin with. do they have any superheroes? Or balls for that matter. Isn't it a tiny kids type shows? YES! Wolverine will be a musical, as well as the next iron man. I'm now becoming more of a DC fan. which is sad for me in that I compared that universe to Disney in so many ways. This is a shame. :ssad:

    The good news is that since many of Marvel's products are geared toward an older audience, perhaps we might see something like Peter Parker getting Hannah Montana's spidey senses all tingly.:shockedevil:

    They know about the same as they did about CGI animation when they bought Pixar and look where that got them.:madaddy:

    $4 BILLION reasons. Iron Man was the first movie that Marvel actually made themselves and that is why they sold for so much. If the Pixar buyout is any indication, the Marvel guys will be staying on. The REAL funny part is that Universal is either going to have to change a number of their big rides in the Islands of Adventure park in Orlando or pay big royalties to their main competitor...lol.

    It's all just business bull anyway, if anything changes it'd screw up their bottom line and that aint what anyone wants. Probably nothing will change, if anything does, Disney will put a bigger CGI budget or better animators behind the Marvel character movies. They may suck in some ways, but Disney hasn't shown themselves to be either stupid or averse to money over the years.

    Disney said they will not interfere with what Marvel produces, just in for the profit I guess.

    Does that surprise you? Disney is not in the "art for art's sake" business and wake up and smell the coffee, kids.........Marvel is a freaking comic book company, not some London academic publishing house. How much could anyone screw it up? You are all 40 years old, so the "I'm a collector" bit doesn't even work any more. Stop reading kiddy literature.:devilzeek:cheesydevil:
