Now that Disney has acquired Marvel Comics, it would be interesting to see how they would match up to DC Comics which has Warner Brothers, Time Warner and CNN on its corner. Hope they can produce an animated Avengers series similar to the Justice League series on Cartoon Network. I just hope they don't cross over Mickey Mouse with Spider-Man. It's tough enough for Marvel to have to resort to something like the "Super Hero Squad" just to reach new younger fans. Okay, maybe Mickey Mouse can cross over into "Super Hero Squad."
that's a very good question. however, from looking at marvel entertainment's track record, it seems they're on the right track. as long as everything goes according to plan for them with the Avengers movie coming up, then they should be just fine. All it means is that now they'll have more marketing power behind them now. as that was one of the problems for the last "incredible hulk" film. marvel spent so much money to advertise for "iron man", they didn't have enough to promote the "incredible hulk" as much. sure there was other factors involved as to why it wasn't as much of a hit, but that did play a major part of it. however, with disney's financial backing, it should allow marvel to have the resources necessary to market all their films properly now.
i doubt seriously disney will become too hands on with marvel unless they start producing flops. besides, you have to remember disney also owns miramax, touch stone, espn, abc, and vivid videos (porn company). however, do you ever see disney intervening with any of them? trying to make their products more kid friendly? no, they don't because they know when not to mess with a good thing. that's why as long as marvel doesn't start to produce a series of flops, then I'm sure this could only mean nothing but good things for them.
I loved watching Justice League and Justice League Unlimited on Cartoon Network! Awesome shows.
I think that its a good thing that Disney has bought Marvel, they can bring all of their skillz into making big budget Marvel movies.
So... Superhero Squad is a real show, then? I stumbled across it one early morning and thought my friend slipped something into my water.
That being said, Marvel does have some properties that I think would suit Disney, like... Power Pack.
Don't think I want to see Mickey Mouse as Spidey or Minnie Mouse as Wonder Woman that will be a bit too over the top I think, lol. Hey, that Brandon Routh pic is nice, he's very babelicious looks great in Chuck too, sigh.
Maybe Disney can get Miley Cyrus to play the Scarlet Witch in an Avengers movie. If that works, they can get Miley to put on the Hannah Montana wig and play the Invisible Woman in a new version of Fantastic Four.
Seriously, I don't have a clue. When I first read about the acquisition, the question for Disney became one of how far can they go? It was reported that Disney was thinking of movies for lesser Marvel characters, such as Ant-Man or Luke Cage.
I think the major hurdle for them is how to handle the transition--for example, Iron Man II is not a Disney project, and the plans for an Avengers movie might end up being something different than originally intended.
If they do a Howard the Duck movie, well--why not cast Donald Duck?
I know very little about this, but it seems like "brands" are crossing into whatever is making money.
It's a business decision which is all fine.
Still it seems a little sad that the Disney name, which always stood for high quality "family entertainment" may not mean quite the same thing we always used to expect. Too bad, because there should be a big market for movies that people feel their kids can watch.
