As reported by multiple sources, Disney has bought Marvel Entertainment, including the comics and the movie divisions for about $4 billion.
Though Marvel has distribution deals with about a half dozen studios right now (Fox (X-Men), Sony (Spider-Man), Paramount (Iron Man/Avengers), etc), Disney seems unconcerned about this and is apparently in it for the long haul.
I personally think that the Marvel U could stand a little Disney-style lightnening-up.
Looking forward to the Fantastic Four Pixar movie... oh wait. That was already done...
