Oh, man. Sucktitude.
From the PR, “This transaction combines Marvel’s strong global brand and world-renowned library of characters … with Disney’s creative skills …” That’s what worries me.
Makes sense, though. I was actually surprised that Marvel wasn’t bought out sooner by a big studio, considering that DC was purchased by Warner Bros. a while ago, who have, IMO, done a marvelous job of putting out really good content.
I would have expected them to go with Fox though (who produced the X-Men movies) instead of Disney. Oh well. Another interesting legacy is going to be flushed down the toilet.
Although, I wouldn’t mind seeing a Mickey Mouse vs. Magneto game.
