Last night I picked up the pisspoor Evening Standard as it was 10p. I will get onto Dennis MacShane's poor article on Europe later but I was amused to read Sam Leith's bit on Disney taking over Marvel Comics.

This was the accompanying image...

And the tagline was: "A marketing dream: Kirsten Dunst in the Disney blockbuster Spider-Man 2.

Now I know that sub-editors aren't the brilliant guys of old and are more layout specialists but c'mon.

1) Sony Pictures owns the Spidey film rights

2) Even after Disney's buy, Sony still owns the rights.

Sam also wrote: "The game will be truly up when we are awash with plush toy Wolverines..."

Um, Sam?
