THOR promo goes Viral

I’ve been resisting promoting the movie “Thor” from Marvel on this blog because in my mind it’s not really a Disney film. I’m willing to give it a chance. Take for instance, this really fun video parodying the Darth Vader VW ad which has gone viral. It’s great and I’m very happy to share it with you.

Cute, right?

What do you think? Am I right by not covering Marvel movie releases here? Or is it time to get on board?

  3. Admittingly I am a comic book nerd so I am biased, but I would love it if you covered Marvel’s movies, especially if there was a decidedly Disney angle to them (whatever that looks like).

  4. It depends on the studio producing/releasing it.

    In this case, I believe Paramount is releasing Thor, and although Disney owns Marvel now, this movie was in production before that deal was done.

    So, you’re in the right by not covering these films unless they have a Disney label on them (besides Marvel).

  9. If i wanted to read more about comic book characters mingled with Disney stuff, there’s a hundred other blogs I’d turn to.

    I’m really glad you typically don’t cover anything involved, its a nice breath of fresh air.

  11. From what I’ve read, the deal with Paramount was for distribution only, with compensation set at around 10% of the box-office take. The rest of the profit and the copyright on the film all are retained by Marvel, which is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Disney. Marvel/Disney also retains all sequel and merchandising rights. Merchandise is already starting to show up at the Disney Store and in the parks. My instinct is that the film is more Disney than Paramount.
