Disney Buys Marvel Entertainment! 3 Billion and An Army of Characters to Animate. Read More!

The biggest media deal of 2009 has just been announced by the Disney Corporation.  They are acquiring Marvel Entertainment for $4 Billion.  This gives Disney access to over 5,000 characters since 1939 and believe me, they will use them every chance they get.  These include Iron Man, the X-Men, the Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four, and even Captain America.  Each character serves to make a box office smash with the right production team, managed by Disney.  Marvel is powerful as well in other fields Disney is not.  The industry of comic books and graphic novels are 40% Marvel’s.  Overall, this deal sounds a little weird, as Marvel has made alotta money on some great movies over the last years.  So now, Iron Man 2 and even Spiderman are now part of Disney.  These movies have seen hundreds of millions and the company has net $3 billion just last year.  I guess they want to get stable and think even more is possible with the help of the Disney group.  Check out some mainstream media articles listed below:


  • Spiderman 4 in  2011
  • Thor
  • Avengers
