HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles, Hollywood Bureau) – Marvel Studios, LLC, a subsidiary of Walt Disney Studios is suing Otso Diretso, the senatorial slate of the Philippine Opposition for the coming May 13 elections.
The lawusit stems from Otso Diretso’s use of photoshopped images of Marvel’s latest blockbuster film, “The Avengers: Endgame.”
Otso Diretso substituted Marvel’s original images with photos of the eight Senatorial candidates in a political ad spread on social media.
Speaking with The Adobo Chronicles, a Marvel Studios spokesperson said that ‘while the company was honored that Otso Diretso chose its copyrighted images to come up with the political ad, we object to the faces they used in the substitution. We could have ignored the copyright infringement if, say, photos of good-looking actors and personalities like Coco Martin, Pia Wurtzbach and others were used.”
