Disney Buys Marvel

by Joey deVilla on August 31, 2009

Spider-Man, Wolverine and the cast of "High School Musical"

My spider-sense is tingling, and not in a good way: Disney is buying Marvel Entertainment (yup, that Marvel, as in Spider-Man, the X-Men and so on) for $4 billion in stock, acquiring the rights to all their characters. Soon we’ll see the cast of High School Musical as the newest young mutants to join Professor Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters and a Marvel Team-Up featuring Spider-Man and the Jonas Brothers.

I feel like this:

Hahahaha…. we share the same sentiments on this move to buy marvel.

A future grand crossover between the Avengers and the Seven Dwarfs!

I hope Disney doesn’t mess around too much with Marvel, like in this funny parody of the situation.
