Disney to buy Marvel in $4bn deal
Entertainment giant Walt Disney is to buy Marvel Entertainment in a shares and cash deal valued at $4bn (2.5bn).

The deal means Disney will take over ownership of 5,000 Marvel characters, such as Spider-Man and the X-Men.

Marvel shareholders will get $30 per share in cash plus 0.745 Disney shares for every Marvel share owned.

The boards of Disney and Marvel have both approved the deal, which now needs the backing of Marvel shareholders and competition authorities.

'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.

'Good deal'

Arvind Bhatia, an analyst at Sterne, Agee and Leach, said that the deal appeared to be a "win-win situation for both companies".

"They [Marvel shareholders] are getting a good deal in my opinion. The CEO of the company, Isaac Perlmutter, is also the largest shareholder of the company.

"From that standpoint, we think the chances of this deal going through are pretty high."

Last month, Walt Disney reported a fall in profits of more than a quarter as the downturn hit revenue at its film and theme park divisions.

Net profit between April and June came in at $954m (579m), down 26% on the $1.28bn the entertainment giant made in the same period last year.

Revenues of $8.6bn were down 7% from the $9.2bn recorded a year before.

Or Disney sponsored animated films. Toned down art in comics or completely ignoring past character history in favor of an "all new" version of characters. Which isn't that ridiculous since marvel's been "reinventing/relaunching" almost every year since like 2000.

Well they did improvise but they did it badly, so so badly. Creating a 'plastic' show about a young teen who's probably one of the most annoying actresses I've ever seen on screen, and her adventures as a singer/normal schoolgirl was not a wise decision...

Sure it brings in money, but dignity and respect? I'm afraid Disney lost this. They should go back to making amazing movies and classic stories and forget about all this crap

I just hope Disney will keep the franchises separate. Everyone was saying how they'll treat it as Time Warner did for DC, but Disney is not Time Warner and they are not afraid to put their "kiddie stars" into anything and everything.

This makes me wonder how long Universal can keep the characters in their parks. I understand Disney was afraid since the Harry Potter section was opening this summer in Orlando, and I wonder if they make Universal remove the characters and rides so they can put them in their own parks.

As for the whole anime ruins dreams, I'll give you the moe and harem shows to agree with. That's about it. :ton:

Disney will only get money from Marvel, So disney wont have a say in the movies or comics

MovieWeb has more details about this, one of the things that caught my eye was:

The biggest piece of news to come out of this new deal is that Pixar will be teaming up with Marvel in the very near future for an upcoming project.

:eek:

The Incredibles part 2, maybe?

As you can see by my avatar, I'm a Marvel Fan.
This upsets me.
Forever more Hannah ****ing Montanna is associated with Spider-Man.
God Damn the World.

wait until you see Emma Frost's new outfit :)

Off topic:

one thing that ALWAYS bothered me in the comics (xmen) was that they made a BIG deal over the fact that Psylocke was an "Asian woman with a british accent." Where the :cen: did these writers live? In a cave!? There are millions of Asian women with a British accent because of British colonialism in Asia.

Beign honest, I think people are taking this way too seriously.

I do not read comics (and I prefer DC anyway) but I fail to see why Marvel would become that just because it is owned by Disney. Just sayin'.

If anything, it's going to help Marvel. We may get to see Marvel developments that we wouldn't have otherwise since the pockets for production are much deeper now. Disney has its tenticles in many, many properties that are awesome. Disney does not automatically equal bad.

Your friend obviously knows nothing about business then. That's like saying because Square Enix bought Eidos we are going to see more japanese inspired games and a TR RPG. Oh wait, people already assumed that.:whi:

Ok, I just blacked out half-way through the thread with the Hannah Montana pics.

Anyway, I wouldn't say I like it, but I'm not really REALLY worried. Yes, it is sort of "Oh GOD NOES!!!!!", and I fear they'd make a "Suite life of Wolverine and Cyclops" in which Wolverine and Cyclops are a happy gay couple in Disneyland.

But some people here are making good points. It is about sharing after all, not one of them taking control of the materials and products produced by the other.

I was like "WTH" when I heard this, but it's all good, just the money, nothing else. :cool:

I suppose everyone would just rather see Marvel run out of money and die from all of the superhero movies that end up sucking rather than be taken under the wing of Disney. Because, you know... The Pirates movies flopped as well as all the animated Pixar movies. :whi:

They won't be different. Marvel and Disney aren't stupid enough to let anything change. The biggest change will most likely be a Disney logo on Marvel comics and merchandise.

None of my favourite superhero movies are from Marvel, actually. The two Chris Nolan Batman movies, Watchmen, Hellboy 2... To be honest, the Marvel movies might be ocasionally entertaining but they are already more aimed at kids. Even the Spiderman movies, which to me felt horribly childish, and Iron Man, which was only watchable because of Downey Jr.

And, considering this new deal only affects the movies, it really can't make them any worst!..... I hope :pi:

the xmen movies were crap. The acting was bad, but then the CGI got better so watching X3 made 1 &2 obsolete in terms of what you wanted to see.
