Marvel Goes Disney
WOW! Can I just say wow! Did I say wow? Disney buys Marvel Comics for $4 Billion, wow that is actually not as much as I would have expected. Personally I love Marvel and believe that Disney got it just in time. I mean Marvel has just started making movies without the likes of Fox or Sony and they already put out blockbuster smashes like Iron Man. I hope this doesn't mean we will see Tony Stark in a Mickey t-shirt around his mansion (maybe a rebirth of Dark Wing Duck through Marvel would work, although I wouldn't get Lucas to direct since "Howard the Duck" was such a flop). Seeing a Marvel park at Disney World would be an amazing fruit of this new venture, can we say "Mr. Fantastic Roller Coaster", Cerebro 3D, or Punisher the Musical (ok maybe not the last one). I guess this move was to be expected though. Disney used to be on the forefront of imagination, now if they can't think of it they buy it (i.e. "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and "Power Rangers"). I will say that Disney has it's finger on the pulse, that is why they did not even consider a D.C. Comics buyout. Ha! Take that Aquaman!
