Removing Wolverine From The Australian NRL

imageLast year, the Australian National Ruby League issued some of the team shirts in Marvel Super Heroes variants. Thr, Wolverine, Captain America, Iron Man and Hulk.


Well they are doing it again this year. But dropping Wolverine…


And adding Daredevil, Spider-Man and War Machine.

Bleeding Cool has been commenting for some time on the reduction of X-Men and Fantastif Four licenses, as Marvel seemingly seems to reduce the prominence of such licences as part of their ongoing and fractious negotiation with Fox Studios who own the film rights to the characters (but not merchandise rights based on the comic or animated properties). Looks like Manley Rugby fans will have to get used to Daredevil instead….
