This is rather unsurprising letting the two big partnerships launch at a disney event- It would have gone over pretty big at the comic con this year

Step one of the Disnification of Marvel; Force all enthusiasts of the original product to leave their traditional places of worship to be indoctrinated by the Mouse at a properly sanctioned (monopolized) tent revival where they will hear only the Mouse's truth and be sold only that which is licensed by the Mouse.   The FIRST COMMANDMENT: There can be no free thinking fanboys, only followers of the Mouse

You can hate on Disney all you want, but in the end, a few years from now, when the Disney Store turns into the Marvel Store (and it will), you'll all start shopping there.

raynardmuldrake 7/8/2011 3:04:47 PM

I go to the Disney Store every weekend hoping its turned into a Marvel Store.

reek 7/8/2011 4:38:22 PM

Samurai, you're fooling yourself if you think Marvel's brand power is going to overtake Disney's.  Sure, in a couple years you'll only be able to buy your faux aged 70's retro spider-man T shirt in a Disney store (if you're actually in to that sort of thing) but that seems like a good thing to you?  Look, I'm not retarded, I know that having the marketing muscle of the Mouse can get the properties we all want to see made get done faster but at what cost to the integrity of the source material.  Right now we are neck deep in the golden age of comic movies,  Even the ones nobody goes to (Priest, The Losers, even Dylan Dog) aren't too bad.  If the material starts getting homoginized or the internet savy fans who are, frankly, mostly responsible for this golden age get minimalized by giants like Disney (which is what this article is all about) what do you think will happen to the quality of the movies?  Disney sure as hell didn't buy Marvel to get into comic book production.

I only have one question:

WIll Disney freeze Stan Lee's head when he dies?

reek 7/9/2011 11:23:26 AM

Way to cut through the garbage and go right to the important stuff doubleRdiner!  Not only will they freeze Stan's noggin they'll constantly use the phrase "Stan would have wanted it that way" as the develop the new Avengers Babies cartoon (or would that be superhero squad?)

 Disney fans are going to be as enamoured with a Marvel panel as Comic Con goers are with a Disney panel. In other words, not so much. Disney and Marvel are experimenting right now to see if they can cross-pollinate these two markets into an even bigger market. My bet is that it will be as empty as Hall H during a Disney panel at Comic Con. The markets are too disimiliar to mesh, and doing it less than a month after Comic Con, for the same price as Comic Con, means you're not going to draw the geeks that you normally would.

Not to mention that I can wait until April of next year when they'll be presenting at Wondercon here in SF anyway. So no big loss.

Wiseguy 7/10/2011 4:22:18 PM

Being on the East coast and never been to any of these 2 Cons I say good for Marvel and Disney. The SDCC is so crowded that I think doing their own thing is the best way to go. Sure they won't have the same amount of fans at hand but it'll be a show that concentrates on them and gives them the spotlight all to themselves as oppose to SDCC which has so much shit that really shouldn't even be in the show. And the media will still report on this D23 anyway.

As far as Disney taking over Marvel, they're not going to spend 4 billion on a property to fukk it up and "disneyfy" it. Just like WB didn't mess with DC, Disney is smart enough to leave it alone while pumping out the merchandising for the brand and making it more relevant worldwide.

reek 7/10/2011 7:30:45 PM

From your lips to God's ears Wiseguy. I hope that's true. I'm not sure you can compare WB and Disney, their respective histories are just too different despite both gaining their fame as cartoon producers. Do you really see Disneyl bankrolling Marvel Studios projects on what should be "R" rated titles? Punisher, Blade et.al. I know they ran Touchstone back in the day which did do a few edgy projects so maybe I'm just being cynical.
