Disney’s Marvelous Adventure

Disney buys Marvel. That came out of nowhere. Since Marvel wasn’t in any financial trouble and under no pressure to make any deal at all, it’s certain the terms are quite fair to Marvel and its properties. So, no, we are not going to see Amazing Spider-Man turn into Chip ‘n’ Spidey’s Rescue Rangers. All signs point to Business As Usual at Marvel Comics and they probably have better leverage for film and animation projects beyond those currently in the works, so they can make more money. Meanwhile, Disney is probably looking to grab exclusive distribution rights to those movies, getting them more money. By all accounts, this whole thing sounds like a very Pixar-ish kind of deal, and I think that’s worked out rather well for everyone involved, audiences most certainly included.
