The Walt Disney Co. is looking to avenge the loss it took on the blockbuster bomb "John Carter." What better way than to ramp up its investment in the superhero franchise "The Avengers."
How do you sum up the work of songwriter Robert B. Sherman? Try one word: "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."
The Walt Disney Co. said Friday that it agreed to sell its Miramax Films to an investor group for about $660 million, ending a 17-year association with the studio and a six-month bidding process.
"We are hard at work replenishing stuff on our shelves," Chief Executive Robert A. Iger said.
"We fully intend to continue to fuel the marketplace with Marvel's 'Avengers'-related stories and characters so that the momentum continues," Mr. Iger said.
