    Default Did marvel lose the rest of the Microns they owned to hasbro?

    Marvel as you know sometimes keeps some things from ip books. Machine man in 2001. Pilots in shogun warriors. Stuntmen in team america. Main hero in us1. Red ronin in godzilla. Death's head and circuit breaker in transformers and gijoe. Roms human form and wife in rom.

    And the marvel made microns, microverse, captain universe from micronauts. In fact micron city is in ant-man and wasp. (but microverse renamed)

    Well gunn says he tried to get bug for all three gotg films and he was stopped--by hasbro! Gunn says hasbro owns bug and he can't use him.

    So when did marvel lose bug? Or does marvel still own him but still have to get a ok from hasbro? Also what does this mean for captain universe and other marvel owned from ip books like deaths head and machine man?

    Marvel lost the rom bad guys a few years ago also.

    comic run that largely inspired the Marvel Studios' franchise, the character technically belongs to Hasbro's Micronauts property. At one point, Paramount also had a Micronauts film on its release slate, but it's since been removed.
    Marvel is not allowed to use Bug in films. I have tried to use him in all three movies, and was not able. I hope this settles your argument.

    I thought Arcturus Rann, Mari, and Bug were Marvel.

    Disney/Marvel should buy Micronauts.

    Not even going to pretend to understand how this all works but, according to this…

    …Marvel owns the comic book rights to Bug (and it’s other original Micronauts characters), but not the film rights.

    That does suck. I would love to see Bug in a Guardians movie. It is weird that a character created and owned fully by Marvel would still have the film rights owned by another company even though they never sold the rights to the characters. I wish Marvel would just use some of papa Disneys money and buy Rom and Micronauts in full from Hasbro. No matter what Hasbro thinks it was the comic versions of the characters the people loved.

    So hasbro can use bug, micronette and others in a movie just not comics? Marvel can use them in comics but not movie and tv.

    That's confusing.
