The Disney/Marvel relationship

leave a comment »

Here is some informed speculation that goes beyond the ‘Spiderman with mouse ears’ chatter that seems to be about at the moment. Head over to ICV2 to read up on the implications for movies, television, retail, licensing, games, theme parks, live entertainment, conventions and, uh, oh yeah! Comics!

It’d be naive to assume that the merger is more about a creative strengthening than making money, but this is starting to feel to me like finding more ways to saturate more media more completely with characters (not comics, don’t confuse the two). My worry is that this saturation is going to get pretty old pretty quickly. I’d like to echo the sentiments of ICV2;

Let’s hope Disney on Ice is one of the divisions where they look for Marvel synergies last.
