Activision in particular fills out a hefty portion of its portfolio with Marvel games, including Spider-Man, the recent Wolverine and the upcoming Ultimate Alliance 2. These companies may soon be faced with losing these properties altogether.

Not particularly worried about it. People are being very doom and gloom about this but what they don't realize is that Disney bought Marvel because Marvel is successful and Disney wants a piece of it.

To think that Disney will interfere with Marvel is a stretch, although it's a reasonable concern.

I think they just want to restructure Splash Mountain to include Spiderman.

I'm waiting for a Hulk movie with a Jonas Brothers soundtrack. I don't think I've ever actually heard a Jonas Brothers song, but they're white teenage music, so I'm assuming it's something along the lines of "You won't like me when I'm angsty."

Disney loves continuing series to make money with crappy movies.



If ANYTHING, there will be MORE movies like X-Men Origins.

Shit, I liked it. It was a cheesed up, over the top brutal thing of mayhem and murder. That said, I never read the comics so story authenticity isn't a concern of mine, just that I enjoy the movie. Like Crank, that was fun to watch.
