Pixar Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter: No Marvel Disney Movies

Disney Pixar and Marvel Films is a no go.

John Lasseter Chief Creative Officer of Pixar spoke about Pixar adapting Marvel comic books and the possibilty of bringing it to the big screen. In short he said there’s no chance of a team-up happening.


A Shock to us all.

Critically, financially and even aesthetically Pixar is one of the most consistently successful film studios of the era so when Disney bought Marvel Comics for $4 billion it was natural for us fans to think could there actually be the possibility of a Disney-Pixar-Marvel Hybrid? Or have just drank that bottle of cola too fast.

Let’s be honest to see IronMouse 3 even for a animated short before the real deal would be fun to see right? Well, the dreaming can come to an end, my dear readers – because the big cheese up to (no pun intended) Chief Creative Office John Lasseter recently snap us out of that cryogenic dream state saying  that there would be no Pixar/Marvel team-ups, now or in the future.

What John Lasseter had to say.

When IGN Movies discussed the possibility of Pixar/Marvel team-ups with John Lasseter, his response would send a cold shiver down any ones spine.

“No, Pixar, we are — Disney has been great. Bob Iger is phenomenal. I’m Chief Creative Officer of Disney Animation as well, and with Pixar it’s like, ‘Keep doing what you’re doing, guys.’ It’s a filmmaker-driven studio. All of the ideas come from the filmmakers themselves. Working with the filmmakers on ideas.”

Okay that’s a shame but John what about a Pixar/Marvel film? Please, pretty please!

“No, not at Pixar. We have The Incredibles, so we’ve done superheroes here ourselves and so we have that kind of history with Brad Bird doing The Incredibles.”

Incredibles vs Fantastic 4

It needs to be noted the surprising similarities between Marvels Fantastic Four and Pixars Incredibles- Maybe it’s a glimpse of the future.


Pixar are an original franchise

Ah okay, fair enough there. It would have been nice to see that collaboration and maybe years down the line we may see it. The good news is, we are not going to have out eyeballs filled to the rim full of  unoriginal franchise movie plots.

Pixars should remain its own world, Incno criss-crossing, no mish-mashing of other franchises but I’m not going to leave it there.

That wouldn’t be fun so I introduce to you Disney and Marvel Mash Up’s from Worth 1000.
