    As long as Disney is smart enough to not try and change Marvel and just use it for what it is, it'll work out fine. But if they start trying to make Marvel comic books and movies more "child friendly" it'll be an absolute disaster.

    I can't see Disney not coming in and Disney-fying everything about Marvel.

    Ugh.

    Good for the shareholders - but not good for Marvel fans, at least I don't think so.

    Also, does this mean that future Marvel movies will be under the Disney banner and distribution?!?

    I think Marvel already has a theme park - or their characters are liscensed to one.

    Also... I hope they're covering Stan Lee in some of this. Disney will own all of Marvel's characters! That seems so wrong.

    Damn... I so see Spider-man meet Shrek direct to DVD in the future.

    My thrice monthly spiderman comics are something I enjoy very much and I take it very seriously when the possibility of disney interfering with them happens and that is what disney BUYING marvel is, in the mid 90s marvel was fucked up because of hyper marketing, specators market and the FREQUENT interference of people whose job was marketing with the comics
    and now theyre being bought by disney I think I'm gonna be sick
    if the worlds gonna end then let's get it over with, i got shit to do

    Yes, Pixar. Worse once Disney got their mitts on it.

    Disney has management issues, they have for years.

    I'm really surprised that with Marvel doing so well ( publishing and films and television ), that the shareholders are buying into this. Granted $50 for a $32 stock is a nice profit, but I suspect a lot of dumping once that goes through.

    Disney is not the super-power it once was.

    An article that might put things in perspective.

    In short, it's quite possible Disney will simply allow Marvel to do their thing.

    Ya know, after reading that article, and calming down from the initial shock of the whole thing, I think I'll just go with the "wait and see" state of mind.

    I don't know - a blog entry doesn't make me feel so great. If it were The Fool or WSJ, I'd feel better about it.

    I just have a bad feeling about this.

    I...don't agree. I think the earliest Pixar films were not as good, and they seem to be getting better over time--I think that's IN SPITE of Disney, not because of it, but I don't think it's gotten worse at all.

    Take some time and see what happens here y'all.

    If Disney does get this through, they'll own Marvel. I wonder what'll happen to Universal's rides since they have an entire theme park (that competes with Disney World I might add) centered around Marvel heroes. That will mean Disney would own stock in one of their biggest competitors (or Universal will have a shitload of painting to do this winter). We shall see what happens from here.

    For my money, I think things will be fine for a little while (several years maybe) then Disney will poke their nose in Marvel's work and force them to be more family oriented. Say good-bye to my favorite The Punisher. Say good-bye to the Max line completely. Say good-bye to the comics fans that have bought for years and years and are no longer kids. Say good-bye to Marvel's profits. Say good-bye to the new Marsney (Disvel?) and close the doors on some very old but very well loved characters. Say hello to the next people to step in and fill the void... DC anyone? Maybe Dynamite?

    In my local comic shop I have already seen comics such as Finding Nemo and Cars! I was wondering why there were these types of comics! Oh well maybe I can give these comics to my 4 year old son and he can start collecting!

    I really hope that Disney does not mess with any of the Stephen King comics! I don't want the Dark Tower Comics or The Stand Comics to be "politically correct" or "kid friendly"

    I feel the end is near for anymore Stephen King comics!(At least from marvel)

    Those releases were nothing to-do with Marvel though. Boom does Incredibles and a few others so they'll just be moved over to Marvel. I expect the Disney comic range will now be expanded.

    Back when Marvel had a Disney license (1994 - 1996) there were series based on Lion King, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast etc as well as books like The Disney Afternoon and Disney Comic Hits that featured loads of characters!. I've not read any of them honest.....


    .......well ok so maybe I am a fan of the Little Mermaid
