Disney Acquires Marvel Comics

If Pixar animated the X-Force and it looked like this, I'd still see it thrice in theatres 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.

About Gospel X

I am a major mediaphile as well as a social researcher. My ultimate belief is that the media can be used to teach children prosocial behaviors and teach adults how to access paradigms. And I think that Mega Man is an amazing example of proteanism. Add me on Google : https://plus.google.com/u/0/113795848855477334599
