Lucky devil. Every time I try to go to a con with a guy I like I end up A) never getting a ride B) getting sick and having to miss the event.

I'm going to probably have to kill some one to go to this years Con, James O'Barr (guy who wrote the crow, which as you can guess, the Crow movies were based on) is going to be there. Though its going to be awkward, because Vic Mignogna and other Voice actors are going to be there, so my nerdities will be running rampant.

Is it probable that the Marvel comics will be "framily-friendly" from now on?

Maybe yes, maybe no.


Adult Oriented stuff Disney owns and doesn't mess with: Touchstone, Miramax, Danzigs record label.

Thats right, Disney brought you Jay and Silent Bob strikes back and Danzig 6:66: Satan's Child

I already knew that.

Anyway, i really don't expect much change. I figure Marvel'll just keep doing things the way they always have. The only difference is someone else'll be signing their paychecks.... I think.

I'd assume that aside from cross-overs that other-wise would have never happened, everything will remain the same. Even all of the game/movie licenses are staying with their respective studios for now.

Yeah, I think that everything will remain the same except for money flow, and possibly pushing certain Super Hero products (like movies).

Well they say they won't mess with current contracts. But I have a feeling they'll step in once they expire. Like say, the Avengers/marvel movies. They're contracted right now, won't be messed with. But if Marvel wants to do another thing like that again, Disney can step in and say "We want some one wearing a mickey shirt"

I don't know what you're trying to say, but they definitely want to keep producing movies like Spider-man, Ironman, and the like. The reason Disney bought Marvel is probably because these movies have been doing so well, and now Marvel has the resources of Disney so these movies can actually be made. The only thing that might change is a more business vision controlling decisions, and possibly not making movies that Disney doesn't think is bound for success.

He's saying that all current contracts regarding Marvel properties will remain as they were prior to the buy-out. So Sony still has the rights for three more Spider-Man movies, Paramount still gets Iron Man 2, etc. After the contracts are up though, the properties will be shifted to Disney-owned studios.
