Marvel sues Disney; Singer on Superman

by on Jul.19, 2004, under General News

The comics-to-movie/tv business is all up in arms. Marvel, having sued Sony over Spider-Man licensing (since settled), is now suing Disney – claiming it is owed royalties from the airing of several made-fo-TV episodes of animated versions of Marvel properties (Spider-Man, The Hulk, etc.) on ABC Family, where the contract actually dates back to when Fox owned the channel. In other news, the planned Superman remake gets another director (I think this is #6) – this time X-Men master Brian Singer. This puts plans for his Logan’s Run remake and X-Men 3 in question.
