BREAKING: Disney to Buy Marvel for $4 Billion
And the beast grows...
dunno if this is a good thing or bad thing.
Fuck fuck fuck. I read about this earlier this morning.
Marvel made Ironman, right? I'm sure Disney's influence won't ruin such gritty, adult character development at all... :roll:
They didn't worry too much about Jack Sparrow, it was heavily marketed and full of innuendos. I would hope that they are smart enough to know not to isolate their key consumers.
wow this is quite the acquisition. i really hope disney doesn't screw this up...
Wonder why Marvel sold. Seems like they were doing ok.
I hope disney doesn't either, but for 4 billion dollars...I'm sure someone that was doing ok is doing MUCH better now.
Admittedly, they didn't fuck up Pirate of the Caribbean. I'll be guardedly optimistic...
I got paid! I love stock market.
It's a Livejournal post, but he's got a damn good point:
I bend to the wall of text's will.
Basically Disney is good at buying a winner and not changing it to suite it's needs. Disney bought Pixar and let them do business as usual because if it aint broke don't fix it.
