Disney to acquire Marvel for $4 billion

Big news on the entertainment front...Disney is acquiring Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion!  This will bring characters like Spider-Man, Fantastic Four and X-Men into the Disney fold.  I'm curious to see how this will play out for both Disney and also Universal Studios theme parks (which has many Marvel inspired rides).  Disney is a marketing juggernaut in my opinion, so there must be a plan!  I do see big potential for some new things from Pixar with this deal! 

Of course, I'm still having a hard time wrapping my mind around seeing the likes of Spider-Man in a Disney park!  On the other hand, I think it could also breathe some new life into Disney's Hollywood Studios as far as rides.
