Disney Acquires Marvel Comics
In shocking news, the Walt Disney Company has released statements revealing an unknown deal with Marvel Comics. Disney will be purchasing Marvel Comics for $4 billion, but there’s no telling what that means for either company. The speculation is that business will go on as usual.
I think this was a deal that has been waiting to happen for years. Warner Bros. already owns DC Comics, so it was only a matter of time before the rival animation studio in Disney would acquire Marvel. Marvel shows have been airing on Disney 😄 for the last couple of years already, so maybe this was all being discussed for the past while.
Know what I think? I think this is a major opportunity to create some amazing comic book shows on TV, not to mention the movie possibilities. Disney Animation could create a beautiful Iron Man TV series, as well as the Hulk. Now imagine Pixar animating the Runaways, or the eXiles, or a home video companion to the Deadpool movie. It doesn’t sound like this is going to happen, but it should.
