  1. I'd agree that it is, yes. But it's also operating in a relatively empty space left in the wake of one of the more iconic comic books runs. It's a musing on what could have happened afterwards (and a damn good one at that). The MCU is still running on a mishmash formula built on existing source material because there's just so much of it left untapped.
  2. She's courting the Snyder Cut hopefuls. Once you realize she's one of those people who is so deep into Twitter that it skews all of her viewpoints many of her takes and "information" start to ... well, make more sense at least. It trended so she'll see how many subs she can mine from that particular pocket of disaffected fans.
  3. I hope you're taking notes shivampa. This is how you alt with style.
  4. And their "source" is Jay Washington. The same guy that claimed to be in the know on Silver Surfer showing up in Infinity War.
  5. Seems like this came up during the bidding war between Disney and Comcast over Fox as well. The movie rights may not be directly transferable but that generally doesn't apply if company that holds them itself is purchased and not simply dissolved. Unless there's a specific provision in the agreement when Sony acquired the rights in the first place stipulates that (which I doubt anyone at Forbes has seen).
  6. Yeah I think this is probably one of the sticking points. Feige likely wants to maintain full creative control of the character, including any others he would end up playing with like Venom. He'd have to produce those movies as well. Sony would likely be fine with that but they want more than one movie every other year. And that's where it probably becomes a problem for Disney. They see Marvel as a finite creative asset that they have the highest confidence in, and they've already loaded them up with in-house projects. An increase in farm out work essentially means they'd have to sell off some spots in their slate. The 50-50 offer is what they're asking for those slots. It's probably too high (Sony is justified to see it that way) but it's going to take more than a mere doubling of their current 5% for it to be worth it from Disney's perspective as well.
  7. They like using Pablo for the Story Group figure when they cook up these behind the scenes drama porn pieces because he's the only member of the group most of them are aware of. That and he's every bit as stone jawed on social media as Rian Johnson is when dealing with the more absurd breed of irate fans so he's almost as hated as Johnson and KK are by those sorts.
  8. Movie's production budget gets financed through debt, Studio A acquires Studio B, picking up those existing debt obligations in the process.
  9. Older fandoms have a higher troll potential as well. The longer people are invested into a franchise, the greater the sense of ownership and the feeling that they're owed something a certain percentage of those fans tend to develop. Star Wars having been around so long is part of the reason it has such an army of malcontents that follow it. Many of the Marvel characters have been around even longer via the comics, but a high percentage of MCU fans were introduced to them thru the movies and don't read much if any of the source material.
  10. I dunno. The various MCU stans going after one another strikes me as dinner table bickering compared to the all out revolt back when the Star Wars prequels were still burning hot on a lot of people's minds. I haven't heard of any of the MCU actors contemplating suicide because of how any of the movies went over yet either. But give 'em time. Fandoms never age well.
  11.
