    Curious!

    I wonder if Disney would use much in the parks.
    Universal already has Marvel in theirs.
    I grew up loving Marvel comics but I do not think I would like
    it in the Disney parks. It has a different vibe.

    I agree 100%, right now, unless they can somehow convince me otherwise. I hope they keep them distinctly seperate entities.

    Kinda' makes me chuckle a bit though, thinkin' how Universal will probably be writin' ckecks to The Mouse now...! Heeeheeeeeeeeeee!

    A mod should move the comments for the WDW rumors forum about this to merge with this thread.

    Hmmm wonder if Universal will still be allowed to use the characters in IOA.

    Re: Disney to buy Marvel Entertainment

    No thanks... I don't mind marvel, but they don't exactly seem "disney" in my mind. I really hope they stay out of the parks... I hope ********* (The U word! GASP!! haha just kidding.) keeps their land with the characters, and they stay over there. This will be interesting, and I seem to see some protests in the future...
    The Golden age never was the present age… but with human liberty we can fulfill the promise and meaning of America. To everyone a chance. To all people, regardless of their birth the right to live, to work, to be themselves, and to become whatever their visions can combine to make them. This is the promise of America...And I foresee the American adventure to continue for a long, long time!

    Re: Disney to buy Marvel Entertainment

    I heard this last night - wonder what Universal is going to do about their entire comic book themed area - not to mention in infamous Hulk Coaster - also, anyone have any ideas how Disney might incorporate their new collection of characters into the park? I'm thinking Hollywood Studios will have some sort of montage to them.

    Well thank you.

    As for Wonder Woman and allow my geekness to show itself. Wonder Woman is DC which is owned by Warner Brothers. From Marvel you'd be looking at some of the X-Women like Storm or Jean Grey.

    I think they'd fit in good in Hollywood Studios. There's plenty of IPs there that I would never think of as being "Disney" on the surface, but have fit in great in that park.
