FOX (ended 1998)
|Yo i want to know if they ever came out or will come out with Spider-man on DVD|
There is a thread somewhere in this forum, where it is explained that the DVD releases for Spider-Man TAS and X-Men TAS are pretty much improbable, purely for legal reasons.
What I remember someone posted here was that (correct me if I'm wrong):
Both shows were produced by SABAN, aired on FOX Kids, and their rights were owned by FOX (the company). SABAN broke years later, and it was absorbed by Disney. FOX Kids turned into Jetix at some point, and it was (as well) owned by Disney. The problem with all this, is that, even though Disney owns both the producing company and the airing channel of both shows, FOX (the company) still owns the rights for both shows, which makes Disney unable to even AIR any of the shows, because of the license.
Disney suited FOX (they are still going at it in the court) because of all this, and only if Disney wins, they're gonna be able to release the DVD's, although I would prefer that they just released all the shows in one set, as they wouldn't feature anything else. But that's just me.
But now that Disney are finally getting off their butts and releasing stuff, maybe they'll try and settle faster.
|No it's between Disney and a part of Marvel. They FF was owned fully by one of them, Spiderman and X-men aren't.|
Awww... DAMN IT!
Oh, c'mon! If they're not gonna release season sets or series sets, at least show it on TV again! I've seen every episode but the final two in season two (the lost episodes)! How hard can this "dispute" be???? Here's the solution: Split it 50-50! I mean, c'mon, box sets would make millions of dollars for this show! And if I had a choice between getting a million dollars or disappointing my fans, I think I'd choose the first one.... So, what's the problem???????
