It's not like Disney screwed up stuff from marvel before, like the 90's x-men, spider-man, ironman cartoons,

OH WAIT

:'(

Stan Lee should form a new company.

Ironically, probably Al Qaeda. If there's any group of people that couldn't possibly hate Disney more than most of America's civilians, its them.

As far as Marvel goes... I honestly wish they filed for bankruptcy and liquidated all their assets rather than sell it to Disney. Marvel and all its holdings will never be the same.

Here's some optimism! IBC root beer, by far my favorite drink, is owned by Dr. Pepper/Seven Up, and yet it DOESN'T taste like crap. So maybe, just maybe, it'll be a similar effect with Disney buying Marvel.

We're fucked.

Any idiot would know this isn't gonna affect marvel's products in the least. You know some other things Disney owns? ESPN, USA Weekly, Marimax Films, the list goes on. Are these all child like and filled with fluffy, lovable characters? No.

Disney is a very large corporation that is solely interested in making money. That is what they'll do. They ain't gonna fuck with Marvel.

Bleh, all that's going to happen is that DC will be bought over by Dreamworks, Disney will be bought over by Apple, Dreamworks will be bought over by Microsoft, and both of them will be bought over by Cadbury-Schweppes (the umbrella company that owns Coke, Pepsi, and Doctor Pepper, along with a lot of Alcopops, almost all of the chocolate you can buy, and a fuck-load more things that you probably thought were independent)

Hey, now that I think about it, DC is owned by Warner Bros. I mean, Batman: The Animated Series was cool. Also, Arkham Asylum...

Yeah, but Warner Bros knows how to take a dark series and make it a badass cartoon. Disney probably won't look good having Wolverine say shitty one-liners meant to be funny, a la Pirates of the Caribbean.

god you people are stupid.

no matter how many times anyone says "they're just sharing business assets." you STILL shout "NO NO NO THEY'RE GOING TO MAKE MARVEL ALL KIDDY ITS THE END OF THE WORLD KILL YOURSELF AHH!!!!"

Disney is not going to make any changes to Marvel.

look at Pixar, idiots.

Yeah, I guess you have a point.

Magneto: STAY OFF DRUGS, KIDS!!!
Wolverine: That's right, bro? Ya see, by saying "bro," I'm making myself more relatable to the children, while still retaining my position as a good role model! Ain't I a scamp?
Magneto: Yeah! I'm so glad we've settled our differences to become friends. Hug me!
Wolverine: Aww, okay! *Hugs*
Nightcrawler: Room for one more?
Magneto and Wolverine: Heck yeah!

hey, mooks, shadup and read this:

"Disney executives went to great lengths during the call to make the point that they don't pretend to be more expert than Marvel is in handling their characters, citing the hands-off relationship Disney has had with Pixar since the acquisition of that studio. Disney said Marvel manages the properties from a business perspective very intelligently and trusts them to make the right decisions for these products for a long time to come."

now sit on it. EYYYY!

they didn't do it to:

# Lifetime Movie Network
# Lifetime Real Women
# A&E Network
# The History Channel
# The Biography Channel
# History Channel International

or anything else they took over.

calm the fuck down.

yes, but those channels/companies don't have the disney name on them. MARVEL will.

What a bunch of noise. Marvel's prostituting their characters, many of whom have ideals contradicting this transaction. If Marvel isn't based on the upholding of ideals, what the hell is it based on?

And don't say adamantium.

Needs more comparison to disney's aquisition of pixar for almost twice as much. Since then, Pixar have released Cars, Ratatouille, WALL-E, and up, which have an average rotten tomatoes score of 91.25% and metacritic score of 87.5%. Compare this to their pre-Disney portfolio, with a rotten tomatoes score of 96.8% and metacritic 85.6%. Notice any significant change? No, that's because there isn't.
However, Wall-E and UP had a budget almost six times that of Toy Story, and double that of The Incredibles, Pixar's last pre-Disney film. They've also released a film every year as opposed to six films in the 10 years before disney's acquisition of them.

I foresee no noticeable change because of this acquisition.

I heard this news on the radio yesterday.

I was like "FUCK!"

And then they said "Disney's aim is to bring the comic characters to a wider audience."

And then a little piece of my soul died.


Song of the Firefly is on Steam Greenlight and Facebook. Give them a look and support the project!
