No, Pixar, we are — Disney has been great. Bob Iger is phenomenal. I’m Chief Creative Officer of Disney Animation as well, and with Pixar it’s like, “Keep doing what you’re doing, guys.” It’s a filmmaker-driven studio.

Eight superheroes could lead to some speculation, as the cast is sure to include Hemsworth as Thor, Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Samuel L.

The below image, snapped by Twitter user @claimo, shows off an exterior sign from the city’s Hearst Tower. In the comic books, Oscorp is the company run by Norman Osborn, AKA the villainous Green Goblin (played by Willem Dafoe in Spider-Man and, briefly, in Spider-Man 2). Its relevance to the reboot is unknown and could mark anything from a surprise twist of who the villain is or, simply, a background gag.
Hope it comes with a good power source.
