Miramax, acquired by Disney in 1993, is the studio that released Pulp Fiction and the Jay & Silent Bob films. Dimension Films, bought by Disney in 2005, just released Halloween II and is working on Sin City 2. Touchstone? Disney.ABC? Disney.ESPN? Disney. Pixar? Disney.A&E? Disney.Marvel? Disney. It's not the end of the world... even though DC is still better.

I was coming in here to say the same thing you did except I wanted to point out that you have this backwards. Dimension was the division of Mirimax run by Bob Weinstein. When The Weinstein's left in December of 2005, Dimension Films left with them. Disney only owns the Dimension catalog from before that time, so Halloween II is not a Disney property.But Kill Bill is, and we know that's not kid friendly.Your superheroes are fine, people.

Remember WB owns DC Comics, and they didn't Bugs Bunnify Batman or anything..
Co-host of Cat & Fox on AllGames.com!
