    I just read about this too.  For some reason it makes me think that Marvel will become very cheesy but who knows...we will see how it turns out.

      My first reaction was to wonder what Wiley Coyote will have to undergo after he ticks off the Hulk....

    Ms Chievousposted 8 years ago

    Crazdwriterposted 8 years ago

    I'm thinking he would go for...Mulan? she's a fighter and doesn't take crap from anyone

  9. Ms Chievous profile image74
    Ms Chievousposted 8 years ago

    Hmm She is good with a sword too.. I was thinkin Sleeping Beauty and Cindyrella would be too girly for him..
    Oh But no fire breathing dragon would stand a chance against Wolverine

  10. Ms Chievous profile image74
    Ms Chievousposted 8 years ago

    Oh maybe Belle from Beauty and th Beast

    Spiderman could hang out with Jasmine and they could fly on the carpet together. give him a rest..

    Crazdwriterposted 8 years ago

    Oh yea that dragon would go DOWN a lot faster than it did against Prince Philip lmao

    What about Ariel? too girly too? or Belle...maybe Belle she may not know how to fight but she still doesn't take crap from no one lol

  12. Ms Chievous profile image74
    Ms Chievousposted 8 years ago

    I don't think Wolverine would do well with the whole water thing..And I think there might some personality conflict between King Neptune and Wolverine anyway

    Crazdwriterposted 8 years ago

    aaaaaa but Wolverine is such a sweet guy lol. Yea I don't think I could see Wolvering with a fin....creepy!

  14. Ms Chievous profile image74
    Ms Chievousposted 8 years ago

    If we want to hook up ariel why don't we see if aquaman is avaialble.. He may be kind of old for her but I am sure King Neptune would have no objection since he is form the sea..

    Crazdwriterposted 8 years ago

    that is true and shoot aquaman has aged well lol Ariel and Aquaman it is lol

    Wolverin and Mulan

    Ms Chievousposted 8 years ago

    No No Tony Stark would go for cinderella.  He is totally a princess man
    Now alice would be good with the Hulk

  17. profile image0
    Crazdwriterposted 8 years ago

    Okay so Hulk can have Alice

    Maybe Belle can be with Spider-man...two smart book worms togehter?

  18. Ms Chievous profile image74
    Ms Chievousposted 8 years ago

    Now if Belle is with Wolverine then him and Spidey would have to get into a fight.. or maybe belle would like Beast better... We totally discounted the blue furry fella

    I think it is a very strategic acquistion for Disney.  They have a corner on the market for little kids with the typical Disney fair (Mickey, Pooh, etc).  They own Pixar.  They have pre-teen girls with Hannah Montana and Jonas Brothers. 

    However, they lacked exposure to pre-teen boys.  I think this will solidify their position as an entertainment company from 0 to 12 or 13 in both genders.  They also own ESPN so they can get access to the older male demographic as well. 

    Seems to me like they are gradually trying to access every demographic and entertain (and advertise) from cradle to grave.  Seems like a good idea to me.

      All really good points  But what Princess should hook up with which superhero?? big_smile

    Crazdwriterposted 8 years ago

    Yea I think Belle would be more suited for Beast. SPiderman can have Aurora. Wolverine can have Mulan...and they all lived happily ever after LMAO

    Just to set the record straight.

    Aquaman is a DC character. Marvel has Namor the Submariner, and he joneses too much for the Invisible Woman to settle for Ariel.

    As for Disney's relative lack of visibility among pre-teen boys, buying Marvel might not make that much of a difference. Pre-teen boys may play the video games, but they're not the ones buying the comic books or most of the movie tickets.

    I'll tell you what's smart of this. If the X-Men, Spider-Man, and the Fantastic 4 start wandering around the theme parks, older kids and adults will enjoy Disneyland a lot more.

    But I'm not sure the Punisher would fit in well there.

      We can put the Punisher in the Haunted Mansion smile

    Aqua Man was a DC comic s guy?  I have forgotten.  What about Universal Studios?  I thought Spidey was walking around there?

      I'm sure everyone gets a piece of the pie.  In Hollywood Studios (Disney World) they have Star Wars Weekend and Jedi Academy for the kiddies, which is awesome BTW.  Money, money, money...

    Instead of hooking up princesses with super-heroes, how about:

    Super Mermaid (she could throw on an "S" shirt)

    The Incredible Cinderella

    Hulk and The Beast

    Spiderman in Wonderland

    Captain Snow White

    (for starters)

    How about which Disney attractions would suit what Marvel character best?

    Ka-Zar: The Jungle Cruise
    The Fantastic 4 and the Silver Surfer: Space Mountain
    Ghost Rider: the Haunted Mansion
    Namor: Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage
    Vertigo and Riptide: the Mad Tea Party
    Punisher and Domino: Frontierland Shooting Exposition
    Angel: Dumbo the Flying Elephant
    Iceman and Wendigo: Matterhorn
    Forge: Gadget's Go Coaster and Innoventions
    Ant Man and Wasp: Honey, I Shrunk the Audience
    Pixie: Tinkerbell and her Fairy Friends

    Nightcrawler: Pirates of the Caribbean, then Star Tours, then Tom Sawyer's Island, then the Columbia, then Peter Pan's Flight, then King Arthur's Carousel, and back to Pirates of the Caribbean. As a teleporter, he can pull all that off.

    Multiple Man: Everything at once.

    Gambit: Gambit don't do rides. He just hang out at de Blue Bayou and do card tricks.

    Both Marvel and Disney will in fact benefit from this.  Look for Marvel movies, such as Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk (with Edward Norton), Spider-Man and X-Men on ABC very soon, as the rights to those movies now belong to Disney.

    At first, I think that Marvel Studios was hoping to stick with Sony, but something went awry.  Now, Marvel won't ever have to worry about not receiving financial backing since Disney is funding everything, just as long as Disney approves every move! 

    This is actually very good news to hear.  I hope to sweet Maria that they will now make an Avengers movie!  I can't wait big_smile
