    Disney to buy comic book powerhouse Marvel for $4B

    Ugh! I don't want to see the Disney-fied versions of some of the grittier characters.

    Just think of the possibilities. Frank "The Punisher" Castle could be befriended by a toy astronaut and a sad-eyed robot and turn his life around.

    Or. Not.

    Well, the Punisher has already met Archie and the rest of the Riverdale gang (Archie survived, unfortunately..).. why not have him "meet" Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers as well?

    Actually where I think you will see the difference is in the adds. (Disney everything)

    Ouch, that's probably right. A big ad for High School Musical 4 in The Punisher vs. Werewolf by Night.

    It's a done deal so we'll have to deal with it.

    You all do know that Disney also owns Miramax... and Miramax has such movies like Pulp Fiction.

    By keeping the properties intact and unaltered by Disney, it's just a move for the sake of business and profits. Oh and remember: Pixar + Marvel? You'll probably see 3D CG movies of the likes of X-Men and many other Marvel properties.

    Well, I hope you're right! It is true about the movies.
