Okay so Universal will have to work with what they currently have but it's still of immense value to them. Disney owning Marvel does not legally give them authority to break the contract Marvel and Universal wrote up, lucky for Universal and Marvel fans.Since Disney owns Marvel Entertainment as a whole, Universal cannot build any future Marvel attractions outside of IOA. Pre-2009 Marvel contract stipulated that Universal holds the rights of specific Marvel characters for attractions East of the Mississippi as well as the Marvel name in both West and East of the Mississippi, as Universal never owned Marvel itself. Disney came in and sweep up Marvel, so Universal simply doesn't have the right to build new Marvel attractions outside of IOA.
I think it's nearly impossible to make that argument though considering the upgrades they've made in recent years.If Disney finds that Universal is practicing the Marvel contract in bad faith, with additions that negatively depict characters; I thought that'd be when Disney would try to take it to court, no?
Oh I don't know... You guys remember a year or two ago when one of those fantastic four flags was in tatters.Okay so Universal will have to work with what they currently have but it's still of immense value to them.

They did replace it so certainly credit to them for maintaining the area, but they only did it after basically being called out by bioreconstruct on twitter. A flag doesn't get as torn up as that one was overnight is all i'm saying.And then they replaced it shortly after?
That was quite hilarious how the fandom, disney fandom especially, blew that whole situation out of proportion and made it seem like because there was a ripped flag that meant that Disney should get the rights.They did. I was just poking fun at what a *scandal* it was.
The original 1972 Master of Kung Fu or whatever should be free and clear. However (movie spoilers I guess so I'll tag it)Which universe does Shang-Chi belong to? Avengers?
I remember very little about them, but think mostly they would be free and clear. I could be totally wrong about that, defer to any better informed Marvel zombies on here. That said, various incarnations of Black Knight (who I believe Jon Snow is playing) did do a fair amount of time as an Avenger, so he might be problematic.Might as well ask since we're on the topic of where characters stand. Do we know where The Eternals stand in all of this?
