No Marvel/Pixar Movie Planned, Says Pixar's Lasseter


     Since Disney now owns Marvel, there has been much speculation about Pixar Animation Studios possibly rendering Marvel characters in a film a la THE INCREDIBLES. Unfortunately for those of us who would love to see something like that happen, Pixar Chief Creative Office John Lasseter recently told IGN that it's not going to happen.

Disney has been great. Bob Iger is phenomenal. I'm Chief Creative Officer of Disney Animation as well, and with Pixar it's like, "Keep doing what you're doing, guys." It's a filmmaker-driven studio. All of the ideas come from the filmmakers themselves. Working with the filmmakers on ideas. 

IGN: So there probably wouldn't be any kind of chance of seeing that kind of team-up then? 

No, not at Pixar. We have The Incredibles, so we've done superheroes here ourselves and so we have that kind of history with Brad Bird doing The Incredibles.
