    Agreed, but Japanese companies don't tend to sell to foreigners. Additionally, the one asset Disney had that might have offset that, John Lasseter and his close relationship with Hayao Miyazaki and...

    Yes, it was released in 2000. However, it never had an official U.S. video or dvd release because Disney owned the distribution rights and Time-Warner had just bought Wildstorm. I would love for it...

    CBS and Viacom trying to remerge is old news. They couldn't work out a deal and lawsuits have been filed so it's not likely they will remerge anytime soon.

    Yep. Networks like Nickelodeon and MTV should be of some interest to Comcast. I think other assets would as well, like Star Trek movie rights, the Mission: Impossible franchise, and the Teenage...

    CBS doesn't own Viacom. National Amusements owns both CBS and Viacom. Considering merging CBS and Viacom doesn't seem likely in the foreseeable future, selling Viacom makes sense.

    As far as...
  6. I say they should try to acquire all of Viacom or...

    I say they should try to acquire all of Viacom or at least as much as regulators will allow. Another option might be Hasbro. Also, they aren't giving up on acquiring Sky yet.

    I would argue that the high level of competition is what is driving consolidation. In other words, to stay competitive media companies have to consolidate or they'll go defunct. Yes, media...

    Comcast is competing with Disney as is AT&T and Netflix. Comcast's acquisition of DreamWorks Animation, AT&T's just completed acquisition of TimeWarner (now WarnerMedia), and the rise of Netflix all...

    I respectfully disagree. The media industry is getting extremely competitive which is pushing companies to buy or sell. Disney and Comcast are just trying to remain competitive which isn't bad or...

    You have a point. However, I don't see such a deal being approved by federal regulators and honestly I don't see Comcast being willing to let DreamWorks Animation go. They might be willing to let...

    I agree that Comcast hasn't done itself any favors by alienating Disney. That being said, I don't think Disney would just toss away an opportunity to get more rights back so rashly. It's true they...

    I agree with your assessment. Sky is almost certainly where the next action will be. I would add to your brilliant insight that if Comcast is able to acquire the majority of Sky, they have some...

    Apple buying Disney seems quite possible. I do think it won't happen right away though. Disney is unlikely to want to be bought out at this time. However, in about five years, that will probably...

    Now, that the Disney-Fox merger is academic, what's Comcast's next step? How do other companies respond? What media mergers are likely now?

    After Fox merges, what happens?

    After Fox merges with Disney (which unless something changes seems likely to get government approval soon), what happens next? What will companies like Comcast, Viacom, Netflix, et cetera do to...

    I hope they do return. I feel that because of the advent of New 52 that an amazing opportunity was missed to build on the legacy of the Flash and the ability to create a new stable for young legacy...

    My best guess is Bart Allen will return at or by the end of Flash War. As far as Conner Kent goes, I'm not sure, but I suspect fairly soon.

    Disney is still in the catbird seat because Fox is unlikely to take the Comcast deal no matter what they offer. The reasons being that a) they already have a deal with Disney and b) a Comcast deal...

    The Wildstorm occurring in an universe of its own doesn't preclude the possibility of Wildstorm characters existing on Prime Earth still. In fact, I believe Midnighter and Apollo exist on Prime...

    I don't think it would take generations. Image Comics was able to become competitive very fast. Unfortunately, they weren't able to stay competitive with Marvel and DC.

    If Comcast especially to...

    I admit I gave bad examples of comic companies to buy, at least, from an IP standpoint, but the basic concept of Comcast and/or Sony buying up comic companies as a means of competing with Disney and...

    I don't think it would necessarily would suck. It might, but if done right it could be incredibly cool and mark the beginning of a renaissance of creativity. Beyond the various potential...

    Yes, but in the current age of acquisitions and media consolidation, it's possible, perhaps even likely, that at some point within the next 10-20 years DC or Marvel will be for sale. It seems...

    I think a Disney buyout of DC isn't impossible, but it won't happen soon. An Avengers/JLA movie would be cool, other crossovers would be cool.

    Well, if Disney were to acquire DC Entertainment, there would still be other publishers. Honestly, I think such a buyout could lead to some very interesting and creative comics, but it would help if...
