Marvel seeks to deny Supreme Court hearing in Kirby case

17 July 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Marvel Entertainment has requested that the Us Supreme Court deny the petition by the heirs of Jack Kirby.

The company has insisted that the ongoing case over the rights to many of its classic characters does not "remotely merit" a review, according to Deadline.

The Kirby heirs have recently received backing from Hollywood guilds, trademark experts and comics veterans, who filed friend-of-the-court (amici curiae) briefs petitioning that the highest authority of the Us judicial system judge on the case.

The case concerns many of Marvel's best-known characters - including the X-Men, Avengers and Fantastic Four - which Kirby co-created with Stan Lee.

The case hangs on the reading of the ambiguous term 'work for hire' in relation to whether Kirby's family can terminate the rights to the characters.

Marvel claims the situation is such that there is no reason the Supreme Court should take a hearing on the rights case, »

How Buffy The Vampire Slayer predicted Joss Whedon's Marvel work

16 July 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

How did Marvel's comic book mythologies and storytelling influence Joss Whedon's first big creation, Buffy The Vampire Slayer?

Feature

Before 2012's The Avengers (or Avengers Assemble for us in good ol' Blighty), Joss Whedon had already made his mark on comic books, with his acclaimed run on Astonishing X-Men and his own ongoing Buffy The Vampire Slayer series with Dark Horse. And for many fans – myself included – his step into the world of comic books and superheroes made perfect sense. Why? Not just because he's an exceptional writer, but because Buffy was a flat-out superhero show with plenty of nods to various comic books.

Looking back on Buffy now, after The Avengers and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, these comic-book influences are even more fascinating. Not only was he writing or overseeing a weekly superhero story in a time when such characters were still viewed »

Marvel Wants Scotus To Reject Jack Kirby Heirs’ “Bizarre” Rights Petition

Exclusive: No big surprise that today Marvel and Disney asked the Supreme Court to deny a petition from the heirs of Captain America, The Avengers and X-Men co-creator Jack Kirby. “This case presents a factbound application of a test uniformly adopted by the lower courts under a statute that does not apply to works created after 1978,” said a response filed today (read it here). “It implicates no circuit split, no judicial taking, no due process violation, and no grave matter of separation of powers. It does not remotely merit this Court’s review,” added the media giant’s main attorney in the matter, R. Bruce Rich. In case, Marvel’s rejection of the […] »

Stan Lee: 'DC should ask me to do cameo in Batman vs Superman'

11 July 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Stan Lee has joked that DC Comics should ask him to cameo in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to ensure the film's success.

The former Marvel Comics chairman teased during a press conference at the London Film and Comic Con event today (July 11) that he is very proud of the expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, which will soon include Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man.

"All it can do is make it better for Marvel if we do these movies and the movies are successful. There are people reading Marvel comic books that would have never thought to read a comic book before," Lee explained.

"It helps the comic book business. The movie business has been unbelievably incredible. The Marvel movies are about the biggest money-making movies of all."

Lee then quipped: "DC could probably make a lot more money with Superman and Batman if they announced that I'd have a cameo in it! »

Shuster estate petition to bring Superman to Supreme Court

30 June 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The heirs of Superman co-creator Joe Shuster are seeking to bring their legal battle to the Supreme Court.

They have delivered a petition to the Us judicial body asking that a ruling in favour of Warner Bros/DC Entertainment be overturned, reports Law360.

They maintain their argument that sister Jean Peavy and brother Frank Shuster were not in the legal position to turn over the rights to the Man of Steel to the publisher in 1992.

The Ninth Circuit Court previously rejected the same appeal, declaring that Shuster's siblings gave up the family's right to terminate the copyright on the legendary superhero in return for a payout of $600,000 and an annual salary of $25,000 each.

"The court of appeals' decisions cast a pall over the ownership of billions of dollars in copyrights," reads the petition.

"Other grantees, inspired by the rulings of the courts of appeals, will no doubt opt to litigate »

Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear Solid trailer praised by Hollywood

27 June 2014 6:16 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Hideo Kojima's recent Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain trailer has been praised by Hollywood actors and directors.

X-Men and Spider-Man producer Avi Arad, Pan's Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro and Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus are just a few people to react positively to Kojima's E3 trailer.

In a post on the game's official website, Avi Arad writes: "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a stunning presentation.

"The trailer is full of symbolism and philosophy that we come to expect from Mr. Kojima.

"Although cleverly disguising the story and therefore making the trailer enticing, Mr. Kojima makes sure to include enough visuals to make us comfortable that we are in for a new Metal Gear experience."

Arad praises Kiefer Sutherland as Snake, as well as the use of 'Nuclear' by Mike Oldfield for the trailer's soundtrack.

Marvel Changes Movies Part 2: Building an Empire

25 June 2014 9:23 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

After over sixty years of ups and downs, Marvel was poised to begin building its film empire right at the start of the new millennium.  Blade had released in 1999 and showed that a Marvel character could be successful on screen for the first time, and Marvel Studios was licensing its characters to production companies after their comic book successes in the 90s.  At that point, no one knew what a huge success Marvel movies would be and few companies were willing to give a Marvel property the budget it needed to be done well.  No one would have believed that in a little over a decade, Marvel would be at the forefront of Hollywood.  Today we’ll look at the movies Marvel released from 2000 on and analyze what it took to build an empire.

Marvel could lose rights to The Avengers as lawsuit gathers support

25 June 2014 7:56 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Marvel Studios and other studios are at risk of losing control over comic book characters including the Avengers, Spider-Man and X-Men.

An appeal filed by the heirs of Jack Kirby, aimed at terminating the studios' rights to the iconic characters he co-created, has gathered support this week from Hollywood guilds.

An amicus brief delivered by the Writers Guild of America, the Directors Guild of America and SAG-aftra urges the Us Supreme Court to hear the appeal.

In August last year, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed a lower court's ruling that Kirby's heirs could not terminate Marvel's rights to the iconic character, because Kirby's work as a freelancer was considered "work for hire".

This ruling makes Marvel the statutory author of his characters, meaning that Kirby and his estate have no termination rights.

The guilds state that the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals ruling "jeopardises the statutory termination rights »
