At least now we might see Deadpool in Bambi 3.

If I am promised a picture with Kitty Pryde from X-Men, and Marie from Aristocats at the same time, I will be reconsidering the choir trip to Disneyland this Christmas. =|

Disney also owns Miramax, who released Pulp Fiction. I'm not really worried about Disney making Marvel do kiddie stuff; that's what the Disney brand is for. I imagine Marvel will be able to do much like it has been doing, except that maybe the movies will be a little better.

Yeah I dont think anything will change too much, Marvel will continue what they're doing and Disney will make a huge profit in the process.

Well I'll **** in a bucket. That sucks.

I certainly hope it won't make marvel into an ultra kiddish outlet. I'd say get your comics now while they don't bite, just in case. Still I do wonder what changes we'll see at the disneys.

Curiously, will those other theme parks using marvel characters still use them or no? I can see a positive either way for disney:
Allow your competitors to keep using the characters and you get a slice of the profits.
Don't allow your competitors to use the characters anymore and you wreck their profits.

I can't be too sure. What do you guys think will happen?
