I doubt it will have any effect on this title, but kinda scary for future titles if Disney decides to create and distribute in house.

Disney said that they will honour all current contracts, which includes activisions that runs until 2017. They also ended with saying "If it's not broke, don't fix it...", so as long as thing like this and the deadpool movie do well, it will stay with the same developers. Same goes for Sony with Spider-man, and so on.

In sum, I wouldn't worry too much ;) I think it is a good thing actually, because Disney can do whatever they want and the sky is the limit with them.

Exactly, no more well this studio has rights to this character and this studio has the rights to that character. I expect to see a lot of great films coming in the future.

I agree. i think this is a really good thing and i know this highly improbable, but i think i would be sweet if there was a Disney character DLC..maybe im the only one who thinks that'd be kool

I was pretty heartbroken when I heard that, I hope this doesn't make them start censoring the comics or something.

The minute Miley Cyrus shows up in one of the comics or they censor out Tony Stark's alcohol addiction to be something stupid like candy I'm probably going to put a bullet between my eyes.

This could go either way. If Disney realizes the success of the books/movies/games, and leaves them alone and backs it financially then it will be good. If I see Jonas Brothers vs The Brotherhood I think i'll puke.

I agree with Midnight, as long as Disney keeps with the whole money machine mentality and doesn't F up our comics, it should be pretty transparent that anything has changed...and you know Stan the Man (a Jew) was just tickled pink to cash that $4 Billion dollar check from Disney (often cited as anti-semitic).

I don't know...I just don't like Disney buying Marvel.
I feel something badass and awesome subtly moving away frome the comics.

Means nothing in the terms of dumbing it down or making marvel less violent. I mean Disney are not going to effect Marvel's work itself they are just the lease holders or another division to make Disney more money.

I mean Miramax is a division under Disney and they have made some very violent and 18 rated + films.

Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Gangs Of New York and many more.

I doubt disney will do anything that will change the marvel universe. It has a pretty strong fan base that could hurt their profit if they messed it up. I do think it would be cool though if they came out with a game similar to kingdom hearts but with marvel characters. It might sound odd but so did mixing disney with final fantasy and that turned out good.

ESPN is owned by Disney.

Seriously though I'm fine with Disney owning Marvel. No company would want to purposely lose money.

That is a very strong point, I can honestly say that I don't know what the outcome will be, but I trust Disney with this, I just pray to God I don't see a Hannah Montana or Zack and Cody make a Porno rip off featuring Fantastic Four Singing, or The Avengers helping out in the hotel.

stan sold his shares when marvel went bankrupt a few years back, he got little to nothing for this purchase.

5.Galactius is defeated by Pluto.
6.The return of Darkwing Duck.
7.We finally discover who the Red Hulk is........
8.The Marvel Zombie universe collides with the Fantasia universe. Finally Mickey and that gay hat are taken out for good.
9.Gambit beats the queen in a card game and takes over Wonder Land.

10. Hannah Montana and Blackbolt have a singing contest 10,0000 miles away from civilization, Blackbolt sang his heart out, unfortunately the world would never know about it.


That's just my theory of how it would go down =P

To warr1or, and any others who may have misinterpreted my post: Definitely NOT anti-Semitic on my end, am married to a lovely Jewish woman, what I wrote NOT anti-Semitic, I in fact thought it was wonderful that Stan and crew got paid HUGE for their creation....definitely not a Walt fan. Don't want to start a religious war on x360a either, just had to clear that up....definitely not anti-Semitic, totally anti-Nazi bigot. (great now all the Nazi bigots are gonna be pissed....oh wait, F#ck them and the Blitzkrieg they rode in on)
