    Ummm, check the date on that article. It's from 2009. Since then we've had a few Marvel movies (The Avengers for one) that have come out under the new management.

    Yeah... news is just a bit old.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Agreed, old news. Thou Disney didn't get every thing.

    Fox owns;
    Daredevil, Elektra, Fantastic Four, X-Men, Deadpool,.

    Sony owns;
    Ghost Rider, Spider-Man,

    Disney got every thing else and is working on returning the rest.

    Now interesting note, for the Avengers movie fans, Spiderman and the Fantastic Four are both originally part of the Thanos story line used in the Avengers. And there was word that in the Avengers, they were going to include shots of Oscorp Tower. A signal of co-op. between the companies.

    Also Sony and Fox are looking at doing their version Avengers style movie using their respective properties. Fox has a better shot with X-men, while Spider-man is more limiting. Some discussion is maybe doing some thing similar to the Shattered Dimensions game with different eras fight together.

    That article might be old, but the completion of the sale didn't happen until 6/30: http://www.deadline.com/2013/07/disn...rom-paramount/

    So, since 2009, Paramount was still producing the movies. Disney hasn't produced one yet.

    Marvel Studios was producing the movies. Paramount was their distributor prior to the deal, but Disney bought them out for The Avengers and Iron Man 3 after purchasing the rights from Paramount. They deal for other projects just closed out with Paramount, but the lions share of cash projects has been with Disney for years now.
