Imagine Matt Damon, Christian Bale and Ryan Reynolds bursting into Osama bin Laden's Pakistani compound and taking out the Al-Qaeda leader.

Well now, that scene is one step closer to reality, as Walt Disney moved to trademark the name "Seal Team 6."

Disney has filed three trademark applications to claim the rights to the name of the Virginia-based team that killed bin Laden.   

The applications are for "entertainment and education services", "toys and games", and "clothing, footwear and headwear."

No word yet on what Disney is planning, but expect Seal Team 6 pajamas, lunchboxes and of course a movie sometime soon.

Disney is not the only entertainment company looking to capitalize on elite Virginia counter-terror unit.  There are currently 3 Navy-SEAL related films in the works, including one by Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow.
