Disney and Marvel

I wish I had something intelligent to add to the whole Disney buying Marvel discussion, but all I can think is:

PLEASE, PLEASE don't mess with the Avengers-related movies. Iron Man and Incredible Hulk were so GOOD.

At least wait until us Cap fans finally have ONE good movie before you fuck it all up.

Thank you.

    If this has any impact on those movies, Your Obedient Serpent predicts that it's just going to be to knock up their budget and accelerate their production schedule. Word is that Disney plans to leave the creative side up to Marvel's current CEO, the guy who pulled the company out of bankruptcy over the last ten years.

    Remember, movies like Kill Bill and No Country for Old Men were produced by Disney subsidiaries, so I doubt Iron Man II is suddenly going to have Tony breaking out into a musical number while happy little animated MODOKs dance around behind him.

    (...which is kinda too bad, when you think about it.)

    The hypothesis bouncing around my LJ is that it was Marvel's "creative financing" for those movies that set the stage for this deal -- that Disney was one of the mystery creditors.

    (I'm also updating Kirby Dots and Ditko Ribbons again, sneaking a new post in every week or two.)

    That's an interesting thought! Would make a lot of sense.

    And yay for updating!

    But...but what about "Wolverine and the Buttercup Princess"?

    Yeah, I think the Disney brass knows that messing with those deals will hurt them more than help them. You do not mess with a good thing.
