    Kirby's kids sent out a bunch of notices but nobody is really pointing out what the basis for them is and the only people "talking", disney, say that this is something they knew was coming and was taken in to account when they negotiated with marvel.

    they only added spiderman in as a scare tactic / bargaining point.


    but this whole movement is fucking bullshit.

    This is done by the same attorneys who went after DC for the Siegels. They won that case, turned around and ran right to the Kirbys and told them they can make them gazillionaires.

    Even if they do win, nothing happens until at LEAST 2014. So everything that is in the works is safe.

    So apparently sony, fox, and universal was served these papers too. What does that mean? Spider-man, FF, X-Men, and Hulk sequels aren't getting remade? No. If it comes down to it and marvel does not own 100% of say, the Fantastic Four, then Marvel could get out of its contract with Fox and can possibly get the rights to the movie characters back. So who's to say Marvel isn't going to back this? They might not get 100% profits, but they have all the rights back.

    This is also going to get really interesting, as it's going to legally put to rest some of the most heated debates in comics. Who really created the FF, Spider-Man, etc..

    Spider-Man? I thought he was one of the few Marvel characters that Kirby didn't create.

    he didn't, but it's included it the suit so the estate can use it as a bargaining chip.
