Why invest in Marvel?

Marvel was purchased by Disney in 2009 for $4 billion (around £2.9 billion). The studio creates feature films as well as several limited series to be released on Disney+, including WandaVision (2021) and Loki (2021). It’s also recently released two films, Black Widow (2021) and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021). All have been well received by critics and the media.

Disney took a significant hit as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. It was forced to close all of its resorts and theme parks, as well as halt any cruises. The closure of cinemas impacted the release of its films, and forced it to start producing films almost exclusively at crew members’ homes. Despite this, Disney just kept swimming, and its stock has recovered well. The company has several upcoming releases and its streaming service, Disney+ reportedly had 116 million subscribers in July 2021. The question is, will it go to infinity...and beyond?
