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 Television
# 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.

Maybe this deal will go down like when Disney bought Pixar. They let Pixar do their own thing and in the end Pixar has yet to create a terrible movie. Hopefully, when Disney says that they what to broadcast to a wider audience, I hope they mean adults/teens who are into superheroes. No offense but I do not want to see another kid friendly Wolverine.

So if I understand this correctly, Disney now has oversight of the characters, content, and storylines of all Marvel brand comic book franchises?

Okay. NOW the industry is dead.

dont be stupid just because disney owns marvel it doesnt mean the chars will change or the staff creating the characters. just like Ford owns Landrover but Ford hasnt changed anything on the landrover its still done by landrover. im sure disney knows the fan base likes the work already done so theyll keep that up. plus nobody wants to see a furries; spiderman mixed with a mouse LOL.

That's just Pixar. Pixar has, and will be a company that makes movies targeted towards little kids. So there is no problem with them because that's what Disney expect/ wants from Pixar. Marvel on the other hand produces mature comics. So there is going to be some censoring in the future.

If Disney does end up buying out everyone and taking over the world, I'm perfectly fine with that. Why? Because that would mean they would also buy out FOX.

If you don't switch to Firefox, you are giving yourself over to IE and forcing yourself to live under its evil regime as a soulless zombie. No one wants that. No one.

I don't know if this was brought up, but Disney owns Miramax, the studio that releases Quentin Tarantino's movies. So just because they own a company doesn't mean they'll force their image on it. This way both companies make money and lots of it. Plus there will probably be a rise of new cartoon series for our favorite heroes.
