Doing something on TV, would be an orange contract. So broker a separate deal for TV.
Clearly it must be more complicated than that though.
Yeah, I don't get it.
Why would his contract prevent him from appearing in tie-in material set in the same universe?
Because TV and movies usually require different contracts. And the rights/license for a TV series are separate from the movies. Even the animated TV rights can be separate from live action and film.
