I agree that Disney purchased Marvel for everything that came with it...I was only referring to Marvel Studios specifically with regards to distribution rights of movie/TV properties.

They bought back the distribution rights to some of the "older" films (Iron Man 1 and 2, Thor, and Capt America).

This makes a ton of sense because:

a) It doesn't seem like it was a very expensive purchase

b) It allows them to do some tremendous "boxed sets" going forward..either for specific heroes or for the entire current "universe" of films they're running. Stuff that neither company could have done on it's own.

c) It allows Disney to program those movies on their own networks, going forward (after some existing contracts expire), without having to haggle with Paramount.

I actually think it doesn't make you wonder about Uni/Comcast, at all. It's a completely different kind of thing, under completely different circumstances. Buy hey, that's just me.

Some of the older things they aren't even having to buy. There is a clause in most of the contracts that if you don't do something with a character for a certain amount of time the rights revert back to marvel, and thus to Disney.

My husband has been tracking what they get this way. I believe Ghost Rider recently went back to them and a few others.

Due to this we can expect a new spiderman, Xman, etc themed movie or show every so often now so the companies that have the rights can keep them.

Sometimes it depends on the contract. Ghost Rider reverted even though they released a sequel just last year. I don't know the terms, but likely Sony/Columbia decided not to renew rights.

Daredevil, on the other hand, languished for years at Fox, seemingly coming close to getting a reboot actually made, but then they missed a deadline.

However, I don't believe any of the things that have reverted in the past year are really on the radar for development in the near future...

every thread that has "marvel" in it tries to resurrect the complete wishful thinking "disney might now pursue rides by buying out universal" thought line.

I just can't see that being realistic on any level...none. It's never going to happen. Disney is not going to build a superhero park...and they aren't going to pay their now prime competitor (comcast/nbc/universal and the squirrely Roberts family at the head) in order to then pay to build new rides for their "loyal" customers.

This is a dead duck argument...there really is no argument. The only way anything changes is if universal goes into serious trouble and gets sold off for parts. and that is now impossible based on who their parent company is.

So i guess stop paying your cable bill and you might have a shot
