Greg Weisman, creator of Gargoyles (and current writer of the comic published by Slave Labor) and executive producer/writer of The Spectacular Spider-Man has commentedÂ about the two particular properties onÂ his blogÂ given the Disney buying Marvel news today. Â Â
Here’s what Weisman has to say on Gargoyles comic that’s currently published by Slave Labor and The Spectacular Spider-Man with Sony (though it currently airs on Disney XD). I highlighted the important bits of what he says:
Okay, in the period of just a few days, I have been rocked by two incredible pieces of news.
1. Last Thursday (8/27/09), Vic Cook and I were informed that in exchange for some concession vis-a-vis the live action Spider-Man features, Sony returned the television rights (including the animated television rights) for Spider-Man to Marvel. This took place the day before ComicCon, I’m told. But I was only informed of it this past week.
2. Today (8/31/09) comes the news that Disney has purchased Marvel outright.
NOW, before you ask — before you post a thousand duplicate and/or overlapping questions to ASK GREG — let me be clear: I have NO IDEA what this means for either Gargoyles or The Spectacular Spider-Man. Neither of these developments are by definition good news or bad news. Shocking news, sure. But how it will play out for either or both properties is a complete mystery to me. As soon as I have ANY information on either property, I will post it here at ASK GREG. Until then, don’t ask. Seriously. Just don’t. There’s just no point in bogging down the queue with questions I have no answer to. Thank you for your cooperation.
