Default Re: "Merging of Brands"?

GOTG/Avengers isn't even remotely a "merging of brands." Nor is it "something really big that people have been talking about for a long time." Trying to say GOTG is a separate "brand" from Avengers is like saying Captain America is a separate "brand" from Iron Man, or Hulk, or Thor; in which case we've already had a "merging of 'brands'" in 2012, making that point totally moot.

Separate titles under the Marvel Studios heading is *not* the same thing as separate brands that would require a "merger."

Examples of separate brands, as far as Marvel Studios is concerned: Spider-Man. X-Men. Fantastic Four. Namor (currently still farmed out to Universal). Star Wars. Disney/Pixar properties. Riddick, or other Vin properties. Hell....even *DC Comics.*

Same thing I keep saying:
Vin Diesel as Kingpin.
Marvel Studios reboots Daredevil; puts Vin as Kingpin as the main villain; shares Kingpin with TASM in a crossover story, and officially shares the MCU with Sony's Spider-Man (sub-)universe.

Plug all that into Vin's comments, and it makes perfect sense.
