Paramount ends Marvel relationship

09 Aug 2011

Paramount is to end their Marvel relationship in 2012. Why? You ask. Well lets look back on some of the older stories. Now this story really broke in 2009 when Disney took over Marvel comics. Second Disney payed Paramount $115 Million for distribution rights for the Avengers and Iron Man 3. Paramount still kept the distribution rights for Captain America and Thor movies but in this deal looks like any films made after that will be of Disney's doing.

In October of 2010 there was a press release that explains the deal and states the following:

Following the trail of websites that posted the new design of Capt's costume I discovered there was only  a handful of renditions of what the costume will look like. Mostly the best ones coming from the ones listed from the sources below. Though JoBlo's has a couple of postings including a sketch of the costume and some fan art of what the costume will look like Sci Fi Wire reports Aint it cool got their hands on some of the actual design art of the costume. With out saying to much more then that here they are and they are pretty cool looking if you ask me.

X-Men: First Class Origins is a go

19 Dec 2009

Sci Fi Wire reported on an interview done with Bryan Singer and Variety about his return to the X-men franchise and a prequel that involves some of the key characters.

Bryan Singer reveals the story for his new X-Men

(Read the full article at Sci FI WIRE )

A day after we learned that director Bryan Singer will return to the X-Men franchise with a new prequel, he offered up a few more details about the storyline, which involves Charles Xavier/Professor X, Eric Lensherr/Magneto and the creation of the Xavier Academy.

Now out of curiosity since I thought that there should be more so I went digging around on Google and found the Variety article that was the origin of all the other articles . There is a little more that gets the mouth drooling over the prequel . I doubt we will see Patrick Stewart and sir Ian in this one just because of the following statements made in the article.


Bryan Singer to direct 'X-Men: First Class'

(read full story at Variety)

"This is the formative years of Xavier and Magneto, and the formation of the school and where there relationship took a wrong turn," Singer said. "There is a romantic element, and some of the mutants from 'X-Men' will figure into the plot, though I don't want to say which ones. There will be a lot of new mutants and a great villain."

In the film, Xavier and Magneto will be twentysomething, and the film sounds similar in construct to the J.J. Abrams-directed "Star Trek."

"Whether it's 'Batman,' 'Lord of the Rings' or 'Star Trek,' if the characters are good, you want to see them on their journey even if you know their destiny," Singer said. "I put myself in the fan's position, and I think this story is something I would want to see, and so will they."

Disney to buy Marvel for 4 Billion

08 Dec 2009

Ohhhhhhh noooooooooo. Marvel is now going to be under new management. Disney. According to AP and every single legit news periodical out there. Disney has or will buy Marvel for 4 Billion dollars. That is all their catalog of characters. The whole shabang.

Source: CNN

The Walt Disney Co. announced Monday that it has agreed to purchase comic book and action hero company Marvel Entertainment for about $4 billion.

The deal pairs a comic book publisher that just recently began to produce its own movies with one of the largest international media companies in the world.

"This is perfect from a strategic perspective," Disney Chief Executive Robert Iger told CNNMoney.com. "This treasure trove of over 5,000 characters offers Disney the ability to do what we do best."

Wow. This may be one of those deals that can really wrong in so many ways. All depends on how Disney approaches their purchase of Marvel comics. If they approach it with Hands off then everything will be fine. If they try to interfere and make the comics more goofy like and take the human real life drama out of the equation then it may totally end up sucking big time.

Many questions come to mind like will all those movies being planned based on Marvel characters from other studios be effected. Especially the plan to link all the Marvel characters in the upcoming Iron Man , Thor , Captain America into the Avenger movie.

Or how about other licensing like amusement parks. I wonder if now Universal Studios in Florida will have to get rid of their Marvel attractions or have to bite their lips and pay their arch rival for licensing of the characters.I mean I love the Hulk ride and the Spiderman virtual roller coaster ride is the bomb.
