Disney to acquire Marvel for 4 billion

Think people might find this interesting. I can't wait to see the day Chip & Dale as part of the Avengers. :P

That's such a mismatch. I wonder if they're just having Warner Brothers envy. Batduck vs Captain Donald. SuperBugs vs Hulk Mickey. I could just see them adding Spiderman's Enchanted Castle to Disneyland. Or incorporating Silver Surfer into It's a Small World.

Best yet, Donald Duck can finally meet Howard the Duck. At least the Incredibles can fit.

I think as fans, we wont even know.

The best thing that can happen is let John Lasseter take a look at all the Marvel films and say "yea" or "nay"... no more Ghost Rider or Daredevil.

I actually think that if anything, this is an amazing opportunity to get more comics in the hands of kids. These are two companies that combined could potentially do something HUGE in the world of comics. I may not be that big a fan of Marvel in general, but anything that gets kids reading comics again is good in my opinion.

That is to say if Disney doesn't just pillage the movie and video game world and leave the comics to die a slow death.

Marvel will be fine. I doubt anyone will see a much of a change. If you look at a list of assets Disney owns, I think you'll be surprised. How obvious is it that Disney owns ABC, ESPN and co-owns Lifetime Entertainment?
