    Marvel's Stock has already jumped to that $50 mark. I was going to buy this a few months back when it was $29 :uh:

    There's so many ways this could go.

    I wonder what Disneyland would feel like if I saw Marvel characters walking around the park?

    It would be weird to see spiderman hanging around the castle...They'd probably make a marvel theme park for the marvel characters...

    All current productions and deals are to proceed as planned.

    The acquisition is more along the lines of the Disney/Pixar purchase years ago. Where Disney has a hands-off approach to Marvel's internal dealings. Inside the Disney family, Marvel has a better shot at reaching a larger audience with it's products; from toys, comics, tv shows, and movies.

    I hope Disney leaves Marvel the hell alone like they've done with Pixar.

    :werd: I'm pretty sure they don't care about the comic division, but as long as they keep off the movie side, things hopefully will continue running well.

    Yeah, this will either suck (ie. Disney imposing any sort of restrictions whatsoever) or be great (ie. Hey look at all these movies we can make with all this f'n cash). I foresee no middle ground.
