Disney Buys Marvel for $4 Billion

The Walt Disney Company has bought Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion dollars, according to The New York Times. Now, say that with me again, in the voice of Dr. Evil:

Four billllllliiiiiiiiooon dollars!

I’m not really sure what I think about this yet—as evidenced by my initial tweet on the subject—but I think that Ron Richards at iFanboy has made some great points. The key question here is how much corporate oversight will Disney have over the day-to-day operations at Marvel. Will the House of Mouse be domineering or not? What do you think, Fivers?
