Disney Acquires Marvel Entertainment
As Disney creeps closer to global domination, the latest acquisition does not surprise me one bit. Marvel Entertainment has agreed to a deal with Walt Disney, which will give the Mouse house controlling shares of Marvel. The deal is said to be around $4 billion, and gives Disney control of over 5,000 Marvel characters, including Iron Man, Spider-Man, X-Men, Captain America, Fantastic Four and Thor.
The movie rights along for the said characters are worth this deal.
