It’s a huge weekend for Marvel as ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron” hits the big screen on Friday, May 1.
With so many superheroes all on the screen together at once, it’s a great time to take a step back and look at what movie studios own the rights to what characters.
Information like this can have major movie ramifications. For example, we recently learned that Sony and Marvel are teaming up for a brand new incarnation of Spider-Man, and that opens up the flood gates for Spidey to appear in other Marvel movies.
This news shows how important studio rights are in the world of comic book characters. But it can certainly be confusing.
The Geek Twins have solved all our heroic problems with this awesome infographic that shows who owns the rights to every Marvel character. Take a look.
Here’s a more detailed breakdown of some of the specific characters, not all, owned by each studio via The Geek Twins:
