Marvel and Disney

I recently heard that Disney had purchased Marvel a few years back. At first I was pretty excited about it. They have clearly upped the game regarding the MCU. They have also done a great job with the more recently acquired Lukas Films.

Here is the big draw back from having the MCU part of the larger Disney world. Disney does not want to release movies that will conflict with other movies release dates. So Marvel doesn’t only have to consider their own conflicts, they have to consider all Disney conflicts. This has potentially caused one of the highly anticipated MCU movies to be killed off, The Inhumans. This movie would have been the culmination of the whole Shield TV series that is currently playing on ABC. It would have given us a better chance for seeing Vin Diesel in a real Marvel role, not only an unrecognizable voice of Groot on Guardians of the Galaxy.

All this is to say Disney needs to not worry so much about the conflicts. If a movie I really want to see is coming out this weekend, and then another the following weekend, I’ll go to both. Just keep focused on turning out great products for us and we will keep coming as often as they come out. By worrying so much about conflicts you will only be cutting yourselves short for even larger profits.

  1. If Marvel wants to make an Inhumans movie, they will make an Inhumans movie. Just a year later or so, in Phase 4. Even if it weren’t the same company, Marvel might have moved to side-step Indiana Jones either way. The big advantage of being part of Disney is that there is no risk that Disney will start competing with the early May release date Marvel has pretty much blocked for their most promising movies.

    Plus, it is entirely possible that other factors played into this decision too…like the confidence that Doctor strange, Black Panther aso will be good enough to warrant a sequel, or perhaps even the chance that the Fantastic 4 right might revert back to Marvel

    1. My point is simply that they can put out Indiana Jones, The Inhumans, The Fantastic Four, and anything else without needing to worry if they will get amazing turnouts.

      It seems that they have been going to so much trouble to build the story line with the Agents of Shield to not make the movie would be crazy. I am writing under the assumption that it is likely not going to be made now after a recent article I read where a Marvel executive said as much.

      Thank you for your reply.

      1. I doubt that the Inhumans in AoS will have any connections to the one in the movie. And Marvel is currently really busy with building up the Inhumans, so I am pretty sure the movie will be back on schedule for Phase 4.
