Warrior News: Disney buys Marvel!
Disney buys Marvel! Disney held a conference call with investors that just finished to discuss the deal and while much of it was focused on the financial aspect of the deal – with regards to both current and future opportunities – there were a number of comments concerning publishing and Marvel’s film slate that are of interest.
With a $4 billion dollar price tag I think they got every penny's worth.
"A good way to judge this would be looking at DC and Warner Bros. As far as I can remember, Warner Bros. has never interfered too much with DC and really does let them manage their own business. But then Warner Bros. wants to be the only one making their movies and that is why we haven't seen tons of DC movies because Warner Bros. has no time limit to make films so they really drag their feet.
But at the same time the possibility of Marvel popping up in Disneyland makes me really excited. Plus if Pixar did do something with Marvel then awesome."
"So I got this phone call from Joe Quesada and it was just the sound of him rubbing himself with money and now I am confused."
