It'll be interesting to see if Disney tanks Marvel now. My bet is it will inside 5 years.
No more real violence and dark morality tales. Wolverine's claws will be made of NERF foam, and so on.

Well duh.
I mean, Marvel has been doing so well, with comic book sales declining year after year, and hasn't become mostly a stable of characters being licensed out to film production companies.

And Disney is notorious for neutering everything. I mean, look how Lost has no violence and no death. And that new Bruce Willis movie, Surrogates, will likely be as family friendly as Life Aquatic, Clerks and No Country for Old Men.

And damn, isn't it annoying how often they have Mickey and Donald announcing games on ESPN?
