Do you applaud or are you appalled? Which Marvel comics superhero is your favorite and which would you like to see make it to the silverscreen? For me, it's got to be Thor, son of Odin. Looks like the movie is already set to hit theaters March 20, 2011. Just enough time to perfect my hammer-throwing skills.

Yeah, the X-Men/Rescue Rangers crossover should be amazing.

I'm particularly interested to see what this does to Universal Studios. Within Islands of Adventure they have "Marvel Superhero Island" so will Universal now rename that area? The Hulk roller coaster is one of the staples of the park so it will be fun to see if they have to rename it.

I hope they don't change anything with the Marvel characters. I'd hate to see them get wimpy.
My sentiments, exactly. Disney caters to a certain demography (mostly minors). One can only hope it doesn't try the "...and they lived happily ever after" mantra on the Marvel characters. Turmoil, chaos and flawed personas are what bring out the best about the superheros and anti-superheros.

Disney owns miramax too, and their films aren't exactly sugar-coated.
