Company Men...


Men in tights are all the rage in Tinsel Town right now...

There's a nice article in the Los Angeles Times about Marvel Studios and the new relationship with the Walt Disney Company now that the Mouse owns them. Interesting read.

Give it a glance...

I hear the Blue Sky Marvel domain is still available. Perhaps you should buy it. After all, you expect us to buy this as Disney news.

That was low.

It amazes me how many whiners complain about the content Honor publishes on his blog yet they continue to keep coming back and reading what he has to say.

1. Marvel is owned by Disney. Disney's president is quoted in the article. The article is about how Iron Man 2 and Marvel SPECIFICALLY impact Disney. This is Disney news.

2. I'm not saying it's a good movie, but calling Ghost Rider an "outright flop" is misleading. It debuted at #1 in the theaters and went on to garner $115M domestically and nearly $230M worldwide. They're in talks for a sequel. That's no flop.

Bingo.

If you surf on over to Box Office Mojo, the attitude towards Iron Man 2 seems to be somewhat different. It's looked upon as disappointment. Myself, I think the LA Times article is a puff piece meant to justify Disney's purchase of Marvel. I think the jury is very much out about that.

55 years ago these idiots would have complaining about "Davy Crockett" not being real "Disney news".

to anonymous just above, how does a movie (Iron Man 2) that has already grossed a half a billion dollars worldwide (and still going) how is that a failure?!? MAYBE it won't do as well as Iron Man 1, but so what!! It's still one of the MOST successful Marvel movies of all time (only succeed by the Spiderman movies).
Stop being such a negative Marvel hater!
