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.
