What Marvel Characters Are Eligible for Marvel Films? (UPDATED)

Visual Guide to Marvel Character Movie Rights

I wrote this a few months ago, but The Geek Twins just game out with a graphic that perfectly accompanies it, so all credit to them for the visual.  Since we’re in the middle of summer superhero season, I thought it worth posting again.

Long, long ago (ten years) the thought of Marvel having a film studio backed by Disney was ludicrous.  Marvel  movies were Spider-Man and X-Men movies and that was that.  Then Iron Man started what has been come to be known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe: a shared film world where ANYONE could pop up.  Except everyone can’t pop up.

What Marvel Characters Are Eligible for Marvel Films?

Marvel Comics, Marvel, Marvel Entertainment

UPDATE: 8/6/2017
Much of what is below is still accurate, but Looper just did an excellent video on the topic so I thought I would include it as an addendum, since a few things have changed (most notably Spider-Man tricky legal arrangement).

Marvel Has Got a Mega-Load of New Comics Coming!

First and foremost, check out Henchman’s site. One of my favorite comic blogs. I was so dubious on Marvel Now but the overall quality of the books has been stellar.

I will check the reviews though because I thought All New X-Men was the dumbest idea I’d ever heard and now its one of my favorite books.

I’ve only mentioned All-New X-Factor and New Warriors so far, because I’m a big X-Factor and Scarlet Spider fan. But at New York Comic-Con, Marvel has announced a whole pile of brand new comics they’ll be putting out in the next couple of months! If I was more on the ball – and not playing the new Pokemon X – I would have already posted about all of them. Instead, I decided to just bunch’em all up on our Monday. Sounds like a fun way to start the week to me. A lot of these sound pretty amazing. And of course they’re coming out just when I told myself I was going to lighten my weekly comic book budget.


Silver Surfer

Dan Slott is apparently a huge Silver Surfer fan, and even though she’s been spear-heading Spider-Man for years, he’s now snatched up the…
