If Universal isn't interested in selling there's not much Disney can do (plus they get a percentage from merchandise sales anyways!)While I am not a fan of Marvel attractions being forced into Disney parks, I find it odd that Disney purchased Marvel knowing that they would be limited in what they could use in their parks. I get that the movies are huge money makers, but the fact that they cannot use some of the most iconic Marvel characters at WDW while their direct competitor can freely use them is kind of annoying. I feel as though they should have spent the money it would have cost to buy the rights from Universal so that Disney can freely use their own properties as they want to.
Again, I'm not really a fan of the way Marvel has been shoved into the parks, but I almost feel as though it would have been better in the long run if they could use whatever they want. I doubt we would have seen GotG shoved into EPCOT and DCA. Does anybody know how much it would cost for Disney to buy out the Marvel theme park rights from Universal?
