  1. Nah, project development time being what it is (usually anywhere from 16 months to three years), there's nothing too out of the ordinary with Marvel's TV plans, except that it's making headlines. Normally, we don't hear much about future TV projects until they're much further along, and closer to release, but with Disney/Marvel/Lucasfilm, the huge fan interest turns minor news like this into a big deal. These shitty pandemic times, and the resulting state of the entertainment industry, which has caused Disney (and other studios) to shift focus to "direct-to-consumer" entertainment (streaming),
  2. Yeah, I can't remember its rating but depending on that, it'll most likely either debut on Disney+ like Artemis Fowl (which is a real shame that flick misses theatres completely) or on Hulu.
  3. Well...it ain't looking good for Black Widow's May 1st release date. I was just informed that Disney has cancelled plans to have the Black Widow standees installed in theatres next week. I think it's still wait and see mode, but Disney is obviously prepping for a release date postponement.
  4. Black Widow is far enough out that it would take things really going south for it to be delayed. And if that happens, we'll all have much bigger concerns to occupy our attention. It wasn't just New Mutants, but Antlers and Mulan (!) that have been postponed, so it's all about writing off this month and at least early April as lost business-wise. It's a wait and see strategy. Onward's disappointing opening was the big signal to Disney to hold off for the time being. In other words, don't freak yet. As for New Mutants, it has apparently been finished for some time...at least, the director's
  5. You maybe need to take a look at Disney's blossoming trend of "diversity" in all facets of their operations. For Disney it's not about being diverse for diversity's sake (or "PC," as some of the brainwashed parrots of conservative news call it), it's about hiring the right person for the job (whether that be executives or film directors or writers or animators) regardless of gender/race/creed. On the pop culture front, what Disney has been trying to do is more accurately represent modern reality in their films. In the real world, we all (including kids) see plenty of colorful faces, strong wom
  6. So much ignorant speculation and weirdness...it doesn't take a genius to suss out what's going on here, just common sense, but that wouldn't fit certain angry pop-culture nerd-boy agendas. EDIT: That came across as an attack on all speculation and fan comments and I apologize for that. I'm just tired of the Disney hate and the lame spin constantly being espoused by a vocal minority of fan-boys who are blindly following and repeating hate rhetoric instead of thinking for themselves. People forget Sony Corp (and not just Sony Pictures) was on the ropes a few short years ago and Disney actually d
  7. Well, never say never--and as stupid as the movies you want sound, GOTG proved Marvel can pull "sounds stupid" off, so I'm game--but I'll also take as many of those established flicks (particularly Ant-man+Wasp) as they want to make. As for Hulk, until Universal gives up/loses/whatever the distribution rights to stand-alone Hulk movies, that ain't gonna happen. Besides, I think Hulk works best when teamed up with another hero/other heroes anyway. All that said, Ruffalo has one more movie on his contract...let the speculation begin!
  8. Good points, but people need to remember that while Marvel Studios knew about the tweets beforehand, Disney did not. Disney expects Marvel Studios (and Lucasfilm and Pixar) to perform due diligence on all hires themselves. Contrary to popular belief, Disney can't micromanage all aspects of each division and subsidiary. Regardless of all that, as we've seen on this thread, this is a no-win situation for Disney. Fire Gunn and get accused of "kowtowing" to the right and overreacting to ancient mistakes; keep him or rehire him and get told they're working with a man capable of disgusti
  9. First, let's leave politics and the stupidity it causes out of this. Second, this actually isn't a complicated matter. Disney has a history of firing/forcing out people who do things that don't jive with Disney's standards/beliefs. More than a decade ago they forced the Weinsteins out of Miramax when Harvey W's crimes came to their attention, and they tried to get someone, anyone, to press charges against him. And last year, they forced John Lasseter out for his abusive transgressions. There are countless other, much lower-profile, examples of this. One additional thing to understand abo
  10. Toy collecting snobbery!? lol Man, anything that isn't an overpriced "collectible" statue is a kid's toys.
  11. Marvel Studios has already gone on record stating Deadpool movies would remain rated-R under Disney. I'm pretty sure they'll have to tone the character down when/if he appears in X-men or other MCU flicks though as they're meant to be more kid-friendly, which makes sense.
  12. Expect Disney+ to be very family friendly and essentially capped at PG/soft PG13. Marvel Studios movies will be on there, but don't expect more violent fare such as the current DD, Punisher, etc. or R-rated content such as the Deadpool flicks. That said, Disney already owns 30% of Hulu, and will own 60% after the Fox acquisition goes through, so I suspect they'll use them for more "adult-oriented" stuff like the current Netflix Marvel shows. BTW, streaming rights for Star Wars flicks are currently held by someone else so, unless Disney buys back those rights, it'll be awhile before they play o
  13. From what I hear, the Disney streaming service will be very family oriented and essentially capped at PG/soft PG-13 rated content, which makes sense. So, if these shows were to move to Disney's service, they'd be toned down considerably. Here's the thing though, Disney currently owns 30% of Hulu and will own 60% after the Fox acquisition goes through, making it entirely possible Disney will use Hulu for more "adult" (read, violent) content. My hunch is we'll see shows of this type end up there. It feels like Disney is done with Netflix, seeing them more as a major competitor now and less as a
  14. Yeah, you don't know what you're talking about, "Pole." Disney lets each division and studio operate with a huge amount of autonomy. Marvel Studios takes care of Marvel Studios business, including hiring and all that goes with it, like background checks. The autonomy they operate with was earned, but it's also given out of necessity; despite what people want to believe, Disney is just too damn busy with their own operations to micro-manage Marvel Studios, Pixar and Lucasfilm. To suggest they all knew about the tweets years ago is pure ignorant speculation. Marvel Studios may have, but Di
  15. Ok, long read ahead. Sorry in advance. I don't get the "OMG DISNEY MONOPOLY!!!" reactions to this. First of all, 20th Century Fox (the studio) will still be around as a subsidiary. Disney has been really great at letting each studio be it's own studio. There's a reason Pixar is still the preeminent animation studio (with Disney Animation nipping at its heels) and Marvel Studios has basically written new rules and set a new standard for blockbuster flicks. Besides, one of the reasons Disney grabbed them is because they need a studio to produce the occasional R-rated film and "prestig
