Deadline Hollywood has more on the Marvel/Diisney deal. I didn’t know that Iger was so well connected to comics, and that they wanted Marvel as much as 10 years ago.
Anyway, with a new player owning Marvel, I have to wonder if that will make it possible for the Ultraverse characters to come back in some form. The Quesada crew were totally against it for bizarre reasons (he claimed the deal we creators had made it impossible, which is absurd). I wonder if teh Disney people will be more open to the idea. We shall see.
Occasionally, people ask me if there is any chance of the Ultraverse relaunching. I certainly think that could happen if Disney felt there was some potential there. After all, they could afford it. I have no idea why Quesada thought paying us our meager percentages was too much. It would have been no more than 10% to the creators in total, less than some licensing fees.
