Marvel today released its Q2 2005 numbers, seeing slides downward across the board, resulting in an overall drop of 11% in its profits from this time last year. The biggest losers for the company during the quarter, a decline in the licensing net sales (though for the year, 2005 is still outpacing 2004), a sharp decline in toy sales, largely due to decreased demand (last year at this time, Spider-Man 2 toys were still fueling the company’s toy segment), and a slight decline in publishing.

As is common with Marvel’s quarterly reports, the company listed its upcoming film slate. No shockers were named in the report, though The Punisher 2 was listed as being targeted for 2006, and Namor for 2007. Other films on Marvel’s slate: X-Men 3, Spider-Man 3, Iron Man, Luke Cage, Deathlok, The Hulk 2 and Wolverine. Projects in development, as listed by Marvel: Ant-Man, Black Panther, Captain America, Killraven, Nick Fury, Silver Surfer, and Thor.
