“many different distributors”? You mean how it was Paramount first, then Disney after the purchase was made? TWO = many? I guess you can include Lionsgate if we’re counting DTV animated – but I’m betting the kid wasn’t. And if we want to get technical, who owns the Adam West Batman rights, hmmmm?
I remember in the run-up to the Green Lantern movie, how I actually thought they had their act together. Ah, memories.
ADDENDUM: Some of you in comments have brought up Sony’s Spider-Man movies, and Fox’s X-Men/FF. My point is that even if you take those totally out of the equation and focus only on Marvel Studios…DC/WB is still owned. Add them, and it’s even more so, not less.
