Hmmm.....a tri-branded Kingdom Hearts 3. it would take a hell of a lot of discs to fit Disney,Final Fantasy, and Marvel characters in one game.

It's funny how people think Disney is so family friendly but really Disney is the root of all evil there just a money hungry power house that doesnt care what mindless crap they produce as long as they get paid.



Walt would be spinning in his grave.

I have a family friend whose aunt worked for Walt in the early days. She was one of the artists who worked on darkening the outlines of the characters and wanted to be one of the actual cartoonists. She met Disney in his office when she purposed this, and he laughed and told her that women just didn't do that.

She didn't have a lot of great things to say about he himself, but this was also in a different age.

Why do you guys hate Disney so much?

They've given people so much over the years, so many great movies, set alight the imaginations of millions of children and adults, and it seems everyone just wants to tear them down?

I mean even in recent years, they've created Kingdom Hearts, they've created Lilo & Stitch, Finding Nemo, Pirates of the Carribean, WALL-E, they've even got a great traditional 2D movie coming out this year, along with some really cool movies in the near future.

There's more to Disney, both now and in the past, than High School Musical. And kids like it. We shouldn't be so judgmental, since I'm sure a lot of the things we liked as little kids, older kids thought were stupid at the time.

They're one of the greatest companies out there, imo, and one of my favorite and I think they'll do a good job with Marvel.

Lets not forget the Disney Afternoon that aired in the 90's. Showing cartoons such as Gargoyles, Tale Spin and Rescue Rangers.

I think Raiders112390 is right Disney has created marvelys movies, i for one enjoys the animated Disney Tarzan film, enfact i download Tarzan to my PSP. There is nothing wrong with Disney Raven fans. That's what Disney was made for familys.

Thank you very much Raiders11239. You've just given a priceless message in your post and I'm very appreciative.

BTW you people really have nothing to fear from Disney. I think now that Disney and Marvel are together you can expect to see X-Men become like Twilight. After doing a little research I think with Disney and Marvel together like this it might mean that Wolverine might become more like Edward Cullen. I mean after all in X-Men 1, 2 and 3 look at his interaction with Rogue and the people around him. Plus, the new Alice in Wonderland that Disney and Tim Burton are bringing is simply splendid. So no Disney is of no danger to Marvel, only a benefit. Long live Walt Disney.

I doubt Marvel will become like twilight. Did you know that Pulp Fiction or BKill Bill wasn't rated PG-13 or G? Miramax is owned by Disney. I didn't see "Wholesome family fun" in those films.

Disney is just owning Marvel. No changes, no wholesome familyness. No changes in the next Iron Movie. there will still be swearsi n it. However, swears are part of life. Live with 'em or leave.

I read Marvel Previews ($1.25 a month!) always hoping to catch a flicker of Indy comic news, and to see everything they're throwing at the wall these days. I often wonder who reads this stuff and how many. Here's a site with some answers, and terminology (I guess I'm a "trade-waiter" if anything.) Meet Marvel Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing David Gabriel.

https://icv2.com/articles/news/view/...r-summit-day-1
https://icv2.com/articles/news/view/...r-summit-day-1
https://icv2.com/articles/news/view/...6-market-shift
Quote:
"I'm going to tell you, the limited series is the death knell,” Gabriel said of the current market environment. "The only place that it hasn't been a death knell, which is amazing, is on the Star Wars stuff. Anytime we've called something a limited series, it did not hurt the sales at all. You call anything else in the Marvel Universe a limited series, it's dead on arrival."
Hopefully this applies to Indy if they do 4 parters. On reboots and restarts:
Quote:
"Over the past three years while we've been doing this, we've been seeing, time and time again, phenomenal, phenomenal numbers going from 100,000 to 300,000 when we've done some of these launches. Once you get to issues 15, and 16, and 17 what in the world do you do to get those numbers from a 40,000, 60,000 unit book to 150,000 unit book even for one month?"
This is the pattern I've seen, few titles getting past 15 or 20, just starting over. But the October "Marvel Now 2.0" relaunch apparently fell flat and tons of comics were returned to Diamond. And here's how David Gabriel made headlines:
Quote:
What we heard was that people didn't want any more diversity. They didn't want female characters out there. That's what we heard, whether we believe that or not. I don't know that that's really true, but that's what we saw in sales. We saw the sales of any character that was diverse, any character that was new, our female characters, anything that was not a core Marvel character, people were turning their nose up against. That was difficult for us because we had a lot of fresh, new, exciting ideas that we were trying to get out and nothing new really worked.
It's amended by some PR spin that claims the opposite. Nearly every Marvel character has experienced race and gender bending at some point (though they never get short or fat). Hopefully they re-find their groove in this digital world.
