Disney Marvel Merger - The Movies
y'all. It's your ol' drinkin' buddy, JDobbs here. I know
that the news of the Disney acquisition of Marvel caught
a whole lot of us by surprise, yours truly included, but
there is a silver lining to all of this. In my newly found
capacity as The Peacemaker
I would like the opportunity to quell the angst of my fellow
nerds everywhere with the new possibilities this corporate
gerrymandering brings to some of each company's more staid
and forgotten cinematic franchises.
To begin with I could not be more stoked
for the upcoming:
only that, but word on the street is that Nicky Cage and
a CG reanimated Peter Ustinov will be treating us to a bloody
little something called Blackbeard's Ghost Rider.
of CG, light a candle on the water because PIXAR is working
on an amazingly lifelike Lockheed and Kitty to star in in
the remake/re-imagining entitled Pryde's Dragon.
Bliss and Wednesday might not be around, but Summer 2011
will tell us what's going on with That Black Cat,
starring a white-haired and boobalicious Diora Baird.
in time for McGoohan Fever to hit a crescendo with AMC's
remake of The Prisoner late-Autumn, look for our
lord and savior James Caviezel to star as Dr. Strange,
alias the Scarecrow, with nary a Silly-Anne Murphy
to be seen.
In April 2012 everyone's favourite Canadian
superhero team (The extra "u" is for Canadian
flavour) will beg our compliance when they return after
an absence amidst much confusion in the instant classic:
one is a totally unfounded rumor, but the word from a audio
tech who heard Patrick Stewart practicing for the narration
of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland is that Jean-Luc
is stretching his comedy muscles to try to exorcise the
the demons of Mork for next Summer's The Absent-Minded
That not all folks! If we're lucky we can look forward to
the such projects as Honey, Hank Pym Shrunk The Kids,
Race to Scarlet Witch Mountain, The Apple Dumpling Crazy
Gang, The S.W.O.R.D. and The Stone, and Darby O'Gill
and the Micronauts.
said, I'm not gonna hold my breath for the release of The
Million Dollar Howard the Duck (Now with pants!), but
The Daredevil and Max Devlin, The Journey of Natty Logan,
and The Silver Surfer Meets the Deedles all have
It'll all be worth it once they sign Wallace
you have to ask What If. . . ?
what the merger will do for Disneyland.
