That's true. One of the Chinese members of the BO forum pointed out that by partnering with DMG, Marvel has pioneered a way to market all of its characters and merchandise in China. DMG is cranking up the marketing machine across platforms, which will benefit Marvel in myriad ways in years to come. Just having a partner who is able to finesse the tricky Chinese film distribution system is a major boon for Marvel. All of Marvel's films and other projects will benefit from this.

The Avengers made $84 million in China. Some are predicting that Iron Man 3 can better that total due to DMG's expert promotion. That would be incredible.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
