Disney purchases rights to Marvel Movies

26 Oct

For approximately $4 billion, Disney now possesses the rights to distribute all movies based on Marvel Comics characters, starting with 2012’s the Avengers and 2013’s Iron Man 3. The rights were previously owned by Paramount, who will still snag the cash for next summer’s Marvel movies Thor and Captain America.

Not sure how I feel about this. Disney isn’t well know for channeling the gritty dark themes that have made recent superhero movies successful (ex. the Batman series reboot and Iron Man). I’m a little worried they’ll get trapped in the “how much money can we make off this” thing and all subsequent Marvel movies will be cheesy expensive flops (ex. Prince of Persia). I’ll probably ignore all of this however if they give me a whole lot more of this:

I love ScarJo!!!

    Hmm this worries me. Hopefully they don’t try to totally dominate the Avengers movie or ay other future Marvel movies and they just sit back and let the creative teams behind them. I aslo agree about Scarlet, as long as she is in a tight leather suit I wont really care what they do.
