Thanks to the advent of Marvel Studios and its in-house cinematic universe, not to mention Disney’s acquisition of Fox and the increasingly collaborative creative partnership with Sony, the comic book company has slowly but surely amassed the rights to many of its high-profile characters.
That being said, we’re still a long way from having the entire back catalog available to Kevin Feige, something James Gunn knows all too well. Having previously explained why MCU cannot use the cult favorite character Rome the Space Knight, the filmmaker has now revealed that he has been denied another unsung hero on three occasions.
Takes to Twitter to settle a quarrel among fans, the Guardians of the Galaxy the director dropped the bomb that he wanted Bug to be a part of all three cosmic superhero blockbusters, but Hasbro owns the rights.
It’s an almost identical situation with Rome, where Hasbro controls the intellectual property rights of the character, while Marvel owns the stories he appeared in, which is enough to make your head spin. Unless something changes between the two parties, we will never see Bug join the rest of the intergalactic maladaptations in the MCU, for there are still some things even the almighty Feige cannot get his hands on.
