Walt Disney's (NYSE:DIS) Marvel Entertainment is entering phase two of the rollout if its cinematic universe with next month's Iron Man 3. Time Warner (NYSE:TWX) is exciting audiences with June's Superman reboot, Man of Steel. At least one of these films has the potential to earn $1 billion at the box office.
But there's also more than growth at work in these stock stories. Disney and Time Warner are also outstanding dividend stocks, having upped their payouts 25% and 11%, respectively, last year. Time Warner is also preparing to spin off Time to existing shareholders as a distinct, publicly traded entity.
