    Normally when a movie based on Marvel Comics is released Marvel Entertainment goes all out promoting the movie. The characters are usually given a higher visibility in the comics while older issues with the characters have prominent re-releases. But that does not seem to be the case with the upcoming Walt Disney Animation Studios-produced Big Hero 6. The movie comes out November 7th, but the details of the company's November releases show no signs of Big Hero 6 or the characters. The Hollywood Reporter points out that not only is there no reprints or new material, but the characters are apparently not appearing in any other titles. A spokesman for Marvel confirmed that there are "no plans" for the property.
