The Walt Disney Company (DIS), Time Warner Inc (TWX): This Pop-Culture Sensation Is a Hotbed for Investment Opportunities

More than 130,000 nerds and geeks will mix and mingle with Hollywood elite at San Diego Comic-Con next week. Longtime comics fan and Fool contributor Tim Beyers will also be there looking for investment opportunities hiding amid the panels and parades.

There are plenty to be found, Tim says in the following video. The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS)‘s Marvel Studios will preview two films in development — Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier — at a panel on Saturday, July 20. Another, scheduled for the day prior, will supply details of Marvel’s forthcoming TV drama, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS)

Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX)‘s DC Comics will be just as busy with panels celebrating the 75th anniversary of Superman, its hit TV show Arrow, and other properties in development, including (presumably) a sequel to Man of Steel and related efforts to build out the DC Cinematic Universe.

But there’s also much more than the Big Two to see at Comic-Con. Every major Hollywood studio is looking at new comic book properties as investment opportunities. Sony Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:SNE) is attached to the Valiant Comics character Bloodshot, for example.

The entirety of nerd culture will be front and center as publishers try to find the next transcendent property. A worthy successor to HBO’s Game of Thrones or AMC Networks Inc (NASDAQ:AMCX)‘s The Walking Dead, if you will. Billions are at stake. Not only for the creators, but also for the public company publishers and their investors, Tim says.

Have you explored the investment opportunities in media stocks? Please watch the video to get Tim’s full take, and then let us know whether you plan to attend or follow the news at San Diego Comic-Con.
