Unless you’ve been spending most of the day under a rock or haven’t gone to any of the comic book sites, you couldn’t have missed that Disney just bought Marvel Entertainment. After the initial shock settled, I decided to take a stance of cautious optimism. Reactions have varied, but most people currently working for Marvel seem to take it all in stride. Paul Cornell brings up some good points on his blog www.paulcornell.com. When I get the chance to find out more about this acquisition, I’ll comment further.
Not surprisingly, people on Twitter have been spending the last few hours coming up with insane ideas for cross-overs between Marvel and Disney characters. I decided to join in with a special Disney version of Hell’s Kitchen, which can be found in the Hell’s Kitchen section of the blog*.
*) The Hell’s Kitchen section will be added to the new site as well, so stay tuned.
