Re: Now that Disney has acquired Lucas films...
The average viewer isn't aware of the dynamic shifts though. No one went "God, That Wolverine is too handsome!" or "That Rogue is too young!" Except for the comic buyers who maybe made up 1% of the film's audience.
To answer the original question? The purchase of Lucasfilms makes Spider-Man, X-Men and Fantastic 4 less essential to Disney's portfolio than they have ever been. Between Star Wars, possible Indiana Jones films, the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Pixar, Disney has a slate of tent poles for the next 5 years.
