Confirmation That Disney WILL NOT Interfere In Marvel's Character Development
I was worried for a little while as were the rest of you are now. But after reading this article you all will feel much better about the Disney/Marvel merger.
Before reading the following paragraph from Niki Finke, you need to know whom she is talking about. Bob Iger is the head honcho at Disney and has been after Marvel for quite awhile. Ike Perlmutter is the head honcho CEO at Marvel. These were the two guys responsible for the merger. Now you may read this from Niki Finke:
"Content-wise, the two moguls agreed that Marvel would continue to operate independently of the notoriously micro-managing Disney in the same way that Miramax did under the Weinstein Brothers. Though that probably won't make even hardcore fanboys feel better about the deal they're pissing on all over the Internet yesterday and today. (Given what Iger likes to refer to as the "combustion of digital word of mouth" that operates these days, Iger and Perlmutter have their work cut out for them trying to get skeptical fanboys to believe that Disney has no intention of altering the creative approach which Marvel takes to its comic books and movies. Of course, it helps the corporate confluence between the two companies that Marvel's movie fare has been and will be "PG-13".)
This means that Disney will leave all the character developments to Marvel and not Mickey Mouse them all to hell. This is a marvelous thing. That being said, the future looks pretty bright for comic book movies and it looks like we all will have a generation of them to look forward to.
