The always fantastic “Super Punch” blog offers some artistic responses to the hook-up – my own thoughts on this, for what they are worth, is that this deal allows Disney to have a movie slate that skews towards the cash-rich, hard-to-reach teen boy demo which always seems to have eluded them – if that kind of synergy (Theme Park Rides! Video Games! Toys! Lovely, lovely money!) isn’t what this deal was about, then I don’t know why it came about.
Indeed, Topless Robot reports that Fox have announced a “Fantastic Four” reboot to prevent their movie rights reverting back to Marvel/Disney (Misney?).
