Walt Disney is to buy comic book giant Marvel Entertainment in a £2.5billion deal. It means Disney will own 5,000 characters, including Spider-Man, the X-Men and the Incredible Hulk.

The boards of both companies approved the deal.

Disney president Robert Iger said: "We are pleased to bring this talent and these great assets to Disney.

"Disney is the perfect home for Marvel's fantastic library of characters."

The deal comes ahead of the release of Marvel's Iron Man 2 and Spider-Man 4 next year.
