Early this morning, every fanboy and fangirl woke up to some shocking news…the Walt Disney company announced they were buying Marvel Entertainment for $4 Billion in cash and stock. Yes, $4 Billion. While some immediately thought this was the worst thing they’ve ever heard, others were excited by the possibilities of a merger between these two entertainment juggernauts. After all, combining all the characters of the Marvel universe with a company that owns theme parks, cable channels, and makes movies, the potential for even more Marvel characters getting a shot at prime time or a movie screen just increased.

Since this news was the type that Peter (Slashfilm) and I would talk about on the phone, we decided to record one of our video blogs to share our conversation online. So if you’d like to watch what Peter and I think about the deal and why we both think this could be a good thing…take a look after the jump:
