Although Disney’s upcoming animated feature Big Hero 6 is based on a Marvel Comics superhero team (and comic book mini-series of the same name), The Hollywood Reporter states that Marvel is not planning any tie-ins to the movie, citing the lack of any Big Hero 6 tie-ins for the November 2014 advance solicitations (when the movie is set to premiere) and adding that a Marvel spokesperson confirmed that it had no plans for the property or the characters in their comics for the foreseeable future. The team’s last appearance was in an October 2012 issue of Amazing Spider-Man, where they assisted in the defeat of Doctor Octopus.
Big Hero 6 has been appearing in comics in a serialized manga published by Kodansha in Japan, focusing on the robotic hero Baymax. Random House will also be publishing Big Hero 6 tie-in material.
Big Hero 6 is set to premiere in the US on November 7, 2014.
