Sm Spidey MouseWhile the aftereffects of 10 Days That Shook The World™ have been rather muted of late while Warner figures out what to do with DC and folks were waiting for Marvel’s shareholders to approve the Disney purchase, at least one of those things is set to take place. Marvel has announced that the merger will be completed by December 31st. A special shareholders meeting has been set up, at 9:00 AM.

At the special meeting, stockholders will consider and vote on the adoption of the Agreement and Plan of Merger entered into by Marvel and The Walt Disney Company (“Disney”), which provides for a merger in which Marvel will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Disney. Stockholders who owned Marvel common stock at the close of business on November 23, 2009 are entitled to vote at the special meeting.

And then it’s DAZZLER: THE HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL all the way!


  1. I was told at my job interview at the Disney XD network for a TV Research Associate (sorry I didn’t get the gig, sigh) that all the new Marvel animation series such as Iron Man: Armored Adventures and Wolverine & The X-Men are losing their licenses to run on the Nicktoons network and are headed straight to the XD network.



  2. Lady Gaga would be perfect for the role. But really, we need John Lasseter to get involved with Marvel! Frozone needs his own book, set in the ’70’s with some Gil Kane/Johnny Romita Sr. inspired cityscapes.

  3. I want MAR-ney [Dis-VEL?] to hire Harlan Ellison for that NC-17 reboot of “Howard the Duck”… and I hear he does a spot-on Mickey for a cameo!

  4. Is Kylie too old to play Dazzler?

    That’s who I thought she was supposed to be when I reading some of the recent Fraction issues of UXM.

  5. is there going to be a third season of the spectacular spiderman? there needs to be! the fans of this great and excellent show want to see the scorpion and the Hobgoblin!
