This is shocking news to me, considering that Marvel Comics has a huge agreement with Universal Studios for the Marvel Island at their Islands of Adventure in Orlando.  And what will this mean for the future of the Marvel movie properties?

Will we see Iron Man teaming up with goofy?  Donald Duck assisting Spider-man?  Pluto being The Punisher’s guard dog?

Weirder things have happened though, so just keep an open mind.

  1. The best thing that has come out of this so far is all the silly lists of Marvel/Disney crossovers.

    Its too bad Hasbro is getting screwed on this. They have a new kids channel coming out and they probably just lost a good hefty chunk of it.
