(Source: online.wsj.com) Walt Disney Co.’s plan to buy Marvel Entertainment Inc. May deliver a setback to Viacom Inc.’s Paramount Pictures.

Paramount less than a year ago signed an agreement with Marvel Studios to distribute the company’s five next films, including “Iron Man 2,” “The First Avenger: Captain America,” and Marvel’s most-anticipated property, “Thor.”

That deal will remain in place, but a Disney takeover means it won’t get extended. That could pose a problem for Paramount, which leans on revenue garnered by distributing films produced by others.
