Disney Might Lose Rights to Mickey Mouse

Published

on

It has been revealed that Disney may be set to lose the rights to its most well-known and adored figure. According to reports, Republican Senator Josh Hawley has presented a bill that would strip Disney of the copyright on the original Mickey Mouse if it passes.

Not All Fun and Games

If passed, the law would reduce copyright protections from 95 to 56 years, meaning Disney would lose some of its older copyrights immediately.

As Big as It Gets

Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks came up with the idea for Mickey Mouse in 1928. The character has since become Disney’s mascot and one of the world’s most recognizable cartoon characters.

Hawley’s bill is unlikely to pass, according to Deadline, citing a Democrat-controlled Senate as one of the reasons. Senator Patrick Leahy, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on intellectual property, is described as a “major supporter for the film business when it comes to fighting piracy and improving copyright rights,” according to the report.

By

Many people would have shrugged at the prospect of Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch starring in her own solo film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe this time last year, which is reasonable given that she spent most of her time in the franchise on the periphery of the Infinity Saga. But ever since Marvel’s latest movie, it seems that she is finally getting her own movie.

After Such Success

The Scarlet Witch has gone from a modest background character to one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most beloved heroes since the critically acclaimed WandaVision premiered in 2021, and it appears she may finally be getting the major superhero attention she deserves. The internet was ablaze with reports that Marvel Studios was working on a Scarlet Witch solo feature.

What’s to Offer

While Wanda will share center stage with Stephen Strange in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, it is evident from WandaVision that the Scarlet Witch has so much more to offer than a supporting position can allow.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will undoubtedly further her personal story, reveal more of her talents, and confirm her position as one of the Avengers’ most formidable and powerful characters. And with the recent movie released, fans have already guessed what’s to come and all we would be needing is an official statement on when and what the movie would be about with Scarlet Witch.
