Marvel canceled a Thanos miniseries

A planned miniseries spotlighting the Mad Titan of the MCU that was scheduled to be published next winter has been canceled by Marvel. They haven't explained why, but it's my guess that they're not going through with it because Jim Starlin wants the royalties he's been denied for his famous creation, and Digital Spy confirms there's speculation over that.

I can't understand why they don't just try to reach some out-of-court, behind-the-scenes settlement with him to just straighten out the mess they're causing. Or maybe I can, and the problem is that the people overseeing Marvel affairs are consumed by chilling greed? What is apparent is that they have not handled these matters well at all, and it is certainly having an effect on their publishing arm.

Labels: ,

These people have no common sense. The next year or two is the perfect time, marketing-wise, to do a Thanos book.

I've heard that's why they didn't identify Thanos in the Avengers film: so they could deny it was him and not pay up.

If they had common sense in the first place, the Big Two wouldn't be the awful storytelling mess they are today. It's all about ego and power trips.
