Mix Marriage of Marvel and Disney
At first I wasn't going to add to this blog about the merger between Marvel and Disney. But through popular demand, I decided to step up to the plate.
What will this mix marriage bring to the comic book world? How will this effect Marvel's 5,000 characters? What about the video games? All of this seems mind boggling as this family entertainment industry takes on the icon comic book entertainment.
This is what Disney has to say on the matter:
"Disney is the perfect home for Marvel's fantastic library of characters given its proven ability to expand content creation and licensing businesses," said Ike Perlmutter, Marvel's Chief Executive Officer. "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."
For the most part, people are concern more about the quality of comic book heroes. That this merge will give them a soft image, similar to Darkwing Duck. And in the real world we have the saying, "The good guy finishes last."
Another thing to mention is the movie industry. Let's be honest, there's the potential for some awful movies. They both have put out some bad movies recently, now let's combine it!
I really don't like to be negative about this whole thing, but right now, it is hard for me to vision what the outcome will be. I'm sure someone must have a trick up their sleeve to pull this one off. Time will tell!
My parting thought:
Mickey Mouse and the Punisher go on a killing spree ... and by killing I mean "POW! SOCK! BANG! BOOM!" ... take that you bad, bad man!
