    Default Netflix has acquired Millarworld

    Netflix has officially acquired Mark Millarís Millarworld comic book publishing company, with plans to develop its own movies and TV series based on Millarís original content.

    This is really interesting. I hope it's a successful acquisition. Now, I hope even more that Disney will buy or merged with Netflix that way the Millarworld Universe and Marvel Multiverse can be reunited.

    It was, sometime around the end of last year and the beginning of this one. Then there were rumors Apple might use its massive offshore cash stockpile to go on a giant spending spree.

    It'll be funny if they put out Superior before Warner Bros puts out Shazam

    All this dude cares about is making money off of adaptations of his work. He's more of a businessman than storyteller at this point.

    One would think so. But there should be a balance between money and artistry.

    That seems unlikely now:

    I think Netflix bought Millar world, just in case Disney decides to take their Marvel TV shows off the service, this is their back up plan.

    Netflix is supposedly in a massive amount of debt, like to the tune of 20 billion. Companies that fall that far into the red often look for buyouts.

    His work is more enjoyable than 95% of the stuff the Big Two put out.

    The reason the movies are good and do well is the source material is good.

    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Disney starting their own service that's not going to happen. Even if they didn't I don't want Disney buying up more companies.

    Yeah, it seems more unlikely today since Disney just announced they're starting their own service. Still, Disney will need to make more acquisitions to stay competitive, almost all media companies will. AT&T is buying Time Warner. Comcast bought DreamWorks Animation. DHX Media has been on a major buying spree the last seven or eight years. While dominant now, Disney will have to keep moving forward or it will lose it's edge.
