    I guess stranger things have happened for the house of ideas.
    also, I doubt this will mean much in the way of team ups anyways. But, I love Pooh-Bear, i love Spidey, and is Kingdom Hearts works, so can this XD

    'Great assets'

    "We believe that adding Marvel to Disney's unique portfolio of brands provides significant opportunities for long-term growth and value creation," Disney president and chief executive Robert Iger said.

    "We are pleased to bring this talent and these great assets to Disney."

    Other Marvel's characters include Captain America, the Fantastic Four and Thor.

    "Disney is the perfect home for Marvel's fantastic library of characters given its proven ability to expand content creation and licensing businesses," said Marvel chief executive Ike Perlmutter.

    "This is an unparalleled opportunity for Marvel to build upon its vibrant brand and character properties by accessing Disney's tremendous global organization and infrastructure around the world," he added.

    Brands and growth with international prestige around the world marketing opportunity content creative industry talent sundae with cherries on top...


    Anyone else really fucking tired of this cookie-cutter way of talking?

    It's a corporate press release. It is what it is.

    At the moment there's no reason for them to. Unlike the '90s, today's Marvel is well managed and profitable.
