A Visual Guide to Marvel Character Movie Rights — GeekTyrant

I’ve come to learn that there are still a lot of people and fans out there who don’t know what exactly is going on with the rights of certain Marvel characters, and which studios own what characters. To make things incredibly easy for you, we have a visual guide to check out that was created by artist and writer Maurice Mitchell of the The Geek Twins.I already knew about most of these, but the one bit of information I was unfamiliar with was the fact that Lionsgate only owns the right to one character, and that character is Man-Thing. I wonder if they will actually ever do anything with it. If they do ever do anything with it, I’m sure it will bomb, but if Marvel ever did anything with it, I bet it would be box-office gold.My question is…what prompted them to acquire the rights to Man-Thing?!

We’ve known for some time that Google Photos would be broken away from Google+ into an app of its own, and as someone who uses Google Photos to backup photos from my phone, I’m very happy with the results.

The app will make a clean break from Google+ and give you a ton more editing, sharing, and privacy controls.
