No disrespect meant, but I think the reason Marvel is doing this because AFM rates just aren't favorable. Then add in the union re-use fees... if AFM wants Hollywood to do more work with them, they'll have to restructure some.
These unions need to get over it since it's a global economy now. Sounds more like the want the big payday from Marvel than actually caring about their craft. They aren't the only game in town anymore and Marvel has found using musicians in England to be both better in rates and, in some cases, quality. Plus, there are still plenty of movies being made in the US that can use them.
