Marvel Comics?

Take a quick look here...

Basically this means that Comics is third in line of what the overall company does. They have Marvel Entertainment (the movies and DVDs), Toy Biz and bringing up the rear - Marvel Comics...

Back in the 40s and 50s, Republic Pictures used to crank out Saturday afternoon serials featuring many comic book-style heros. I've long thought that there was such a market today with Marvel and DC's lesser-known heros. I think D2DVD is the perfect outlet for such a franchise.

Obviously Marvel agrees with you as they are doing a series of animated features with LionsGate and then this pack of movies with Paramount. The unique thing about this deal is that it is independent of studio financing - Marvel is its own studio now with the $ to make pictures the way they want to make them.

I've always wanted to see an ANT-MAN movie (with the old Kirby helmet) a NIGHTHAWK with him as a reformed jewel thief turned reluctant superhero, and of course a LEGION OF MONSTERS movie...

And a Kirbyesque THOR, THE GARGOYLE (done as a horror movie) MORBIUS, THE LIVING VAMPIRE (same reason), ROM... a plethora of the 2nd string heroes.
