Have Marvel and Her Universe made an alliance?

We know that Her Universe is expecting to announce several new liscensees, and if this Captain America shirt (prematurely?) available for order on ThinkGeek is any indication, Marvel is indeed one of them. Unless Ashley is suddenly modeling other lines… (Via @Shadadukal)

Captain America to challenge Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. Yes Marvel and DC movies will face off directly at the box office on May 6, 2016 with the third Captain America film and the Man of Steel sequel both opening the same weekend.

Marvel, Netflix team up for four series’, mini-series event; Could Star Wars be next?

Marvel (logo)Ahead of this afternoon’s Disney earning call, Marvel and Netflix have announced that they’re teaming up to produce for original 13-episode series’ featuring the characters Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage, that cumulate in a Defenders mini-series.

Disney already has a distribution deal with Netflix that will make them “the exclusive U.S. subscription television service for first-run, live-action and animated movies,” including Lucasfilm. (That deal starts in 2016, which means the 2014 ‘digital library’ hint is still open to interpretation.) Could this Marvel deal foreshadow something similar with Star Wars eventually? It’s early yet, but keep it in mind for the future.
