A Last Minute Deal with Kirby Saves Marvel from the Supreme Court

Added on by Gamal Hennessy.

Deadline Hollywood is reporting a settlement between Disney/ Marvel and the Kirby estate for the ownership and control of many of Marvel's flagship characters. I'll have a more in depth article about this next week, but my initial thought is the 11th hour deal might have saved Marvel and many other companies who rely on work for hire artists from the risk of costly re-negotiations and payouts down the road. 

Have fun.
