    Disney to buy Marvel for $4 billion
    Associated Press
    Aug. 31, 2009, 8:11AM

    LOS ANGELES — The Walt Disney Co. says it is acquiring Marvel Entertainment Inc. for $4 billion in cash and stock, bringing characters like Iron Man and Spider-Man into the Disney family.

    Under the deal, Disney will acquire ownership of 5,000 Marvel characters.

    Disney said Monday that Marvel shareholders will receive $30 per share in cash plus 0.745 Disney shares for every Marvel share they own.

    It said the boards of Disney and Marvel have both approved the transaction, but it requires an antitrust review and the approval of Marvel shareholders.

    i wouldn't be too afraid Salah. Pixar has maintained their integrity after their buyout so far. Muppets haven't been messed up in their situation as well.

    This could be my fault though. When i went to Disneyland Paris, my fashion sense dictated i wear a Marvel shirt:

    The last Spiderman movie was shit, and I don't read comic books, so I say let Disney do what it wants... but the Iron Man movies should happen as the first did. That was a cool movie.

    I'm interested in what this could mean for Kingdom Hearts.

    So, what does this mean to Universal Island of Adventures? The spider man ride, fantastic 4 shit and the Hulk Coaster?

    i would think only Universal could make the call to take those out. An investment like those has to have a lock on being in their park for the long haul.

    i'm hoping this means some kind of Marvel rides for CA Adventure or Disney World. They'd never make it because it would be a single rider ride, but an Iron Man flight simulator suit would be seriously bad ass.

    This is pretty interesting

    John Lasseter met with Marvel last week about a possible team-up between Marvel and Pixar and got "pretty excited, pretty fast."

    I don't see how Disney is going to do any worse with Marvel than Fox did with Fantastic Four and X-Men and Universal did with the Hulk(twice), not to mention the terrible Punisher and Daredevil movies. Oh yeah and Blade 2 and 3 (I kinda dug the first one)

    So does this mean Norman Osborn's dark reign as director of S.H.I.E.L.D. (now called H.A.M.M.E.R.) will come to a premature, family-friendly end soon?

    I can only hope this means we'll see an X-Men/Miley Cyrus crossover issue, where they team up to fight the unwholesome specter of pre-marital sex.

    Wolverine is the best there is at what he does, and what he does is run around with rapping, anthropomorphic dinosaurs.

    all i ask from this deal, if it goes through, is that Disney casts Zac Efron as some Marvel superhero in especially tight tights.

    It's so boggling to me that he's famous. I went to school with that kid.

    OMG, what's his type? i had the pleasure of bumping into him @ the Phoenix gig in June - he's not as tall or built as he's on celluloid. but he's still darn pretty.

    thank you for being a bully in real life, Corinna. those taunts were probably the catalyst behind his desire to become a teen heartthrob. i owe it all to you.
