"Marvel Enterprises has met with Pixar – and nearly every producer – about translating more of its comic book characters into filmed entertainment, said Marvel vice chairman Peter Cunio on Tuesday.
Cunio, speaking at Emerald Asset Management’s 11th annual Groundhog Day Investment Forum in Philadelphia, said Marvel and Pixar have something in common in terms of their track records in film.
“Pixar has an incredible record,” said Cunio, referring to the company’s five blockbusters in five tries in partnership with The Walt Disney Co.
“We’re seven for seven right now,” Cunio said, referring to movies including “Hulk” and “Spider-Man” made in partnership with various studios. “As long as we continue to make good films, we’ll be successful. It has nothing to do with the genre wearing out.” "
