Disney Corporation has made another great stride in its endeavor to control all possible realms of consumer fantasy.
With a buyout of $4 billion in cash and stocks the great Mickey has bought the upstart Marvel Comics franchise, the famous comic book non-conformists who created such legendary neo-mythical figures as the Hulk, Spiderman, Iron Man, the X-Men and other such spandex clad heroes of our childhood.
Having shown real gumption after coming out with independently produced cinematic hits, Marvel has now caved into the great Goofy which is determined to turn the entire world of fantasy into a corporate entity.
Disney has a knack for taking over any cinematic group which is a threat to their Fortress of Fantasy.
A few years ago they gobbled up Pixar, the renegade computer animation wizards who turned the cartooning world inside out with its revolutionary Toy Story and other imaginative films.
Disney has also been known as a miserly company which would pinch a penny to make a film and thereby ruin what could have been masterworks in someone else's hands. How they ever came to make the expensive Pirates of the Caribbean is a mystery. Of course, having Johnny Depp in it was the kicker. How he ever got in a Disney movie is also a mystery however.
Disney already has plans for putting its unique characteristic twists on future Marvel based films. Coming to a theater near you soon will be:
- Spiderman 4- The Revenge Of Goofy
- Iron Man And His Sidekick Donald The Duck Take On The Red Skull
- Snow White And The Hulk- An Impossible Love.
- Xmen 4- Xavier's Apprentice Mickey
- Daredevil And His Seeing Eye Dog Pluto
Other future acquisitions for Disney will include the rights to the entire Grimm's fairy tails, the commandeering of Lucas's Star Wars franchise, the fencing in of Spielberg's film making empire, the buying up of Bill Clinton's fantasy life, and getting the rights to Tim LaHaye's vision of the world's end in his 'Left Behind' book, thus giving the corporation control over the entire realm of fantasy. At some point in the future Disney will simply declare themselves the possessors of all things of the imagination and will fine anyone who conjures up something themselves.
