Fans hope Marvel will regain their biggest properties, but maybe it’s better they don’t.

Disney Marvel Disney and Marvel Studios are absolutely crushing it lately with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Guardians of the Galaxy, which was perhaps the riskiest picture from Marvel to date, has proven to be a very smart move, coming out as the clear winner of the summer.
