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.*
How would a Pixar/MCU combo work anyway?
