Wow. According to the New York Times, Disney has acquired Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion. Robert Iger  said “We believe that adding Marvel to Disney’s unique portfolio of brands provides significant opportunities for long-term growth and value creation.”  Ike Perlmutter believes that “Disney is the perfect home for Marvel’s fantastic library of characters given its proven ability to expand content creation and licensing businesses.”

You know what that means, a Mickey Mouse Spider-Man.

Its happened to me more than once. Check out our Essential 7 Movies, that were a total let down after their trailer was so awesome.

7. Mission Impossible


Oh man I had high hopes for this one. You have computer hackery (which was cool validation to us 1990’s BBS users), laser scanners, hot chicks, death defying stunts, Emilio, explosions, and Tom Cruise being blasted off of an exploding helicopter onto a moving train…. in a tunnel. I watched the (80’s update) Mission:Impossible on TV with my dad, and I duh-duh-dum-dum’d the theme song as I ran around our backyard ducking behind picnic tables for countless hours… so I was really excited for this movie. But afterwards I was confused… do I announce that I was completely lost/not impressed with all the double crossing, or did something go over my head? Am I an idiot for not understanding it? Am I an idiot for paying for a ticket?
