DON’T EXPECT A DISNEY ANIMATED MOVIE SET IN THE MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE ANY TIME SOON
By Mike Sampson
When it was first announced that Disney was purchasing Marvel, the minds of many fans leapt immediately to the possibility of a Disney-Pixar animated Marvel movie. We’re sorta getting that in November with ‘Big Hero 6‘ but as that movie approaches, it’s become very clear that it’s not really much of Marvel movie at all, other than being loosely based on the obscure 90s comic. What fans really want to know is if we’ll ever see a Disney or Pixar animated movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. John Lasseter, who runs both Disney Animation and Pixar, has your answer: no
When asked by Vulture if he or anyone on his team had ever had talks with Marvel about collaborating on a project, Lasseter answered bluntly, “No, we haven’t.” And, it’s this next quote that makes us think those talks will never happen either. “If we went directly into the Marvel Universe, that would mean we’d work more directly with Marvel,” as if that were a bad thing.
