1) completely agree with Mouse re: strategery of BvS release date. Not just about money, but about being "the movie of the moment." It's really juvenile to me to turn it into a DC vs Marvel rant. I'm a DC fan - it's just smart business.
2) this bit about selling Spidey merch rights to Disney makes so much sense now. I was bewildered last week at Disneyland upon seeing Spidey action figures and shirts included in their Avengers and Star Wars merch
