Tweet of the Day, And So It Begins edition.

Although Deadpool in the MCU is… currently unlikely. They need to resolve the status of the X-Men first. Still, this is no longer impossible:

PS: The Deadpool movies brought in almost 800 million apiece worldwide, off of 58 million and 110 million dollar production budgets. The Mouse can do math.

Florence Pugh joins Black Widow movie.

I dunno, I haven’t seen her on the big screen yet.

Rising actress Florence Pugh is in talks to star opposite Scarlett Johansson in Black Widow, Marvel’s stand-alone feature on the Avengers heroine.

Cate Shortland, the Australian filmmaker perhaps best known for the Nazi drama Lore, is directing the project, which is scheduled to shoot in June in London.

Movie of the Week: Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Why? Because I want to push back a little. I had a good time at Age of Ultron. Yeah, yeah, it’s not the best MCU movie, but watching the Avengers go around and group content their way through dungeons was fun. Everybody likes the individual-hero movies better, sure, but I’m down with the ensemble flicks, too.

So there.

Marvel’s What-If? series would do much to justify Disney+.

Oh wow. Big, if true.

[Slashfilm has] exclusively learned that Marvel Studios will be producing a new television series for the Disney+ streaming service based on the popular What If comic book series.

Disney-Fox acquisition date set for 3/20/2019.

March 20, 2019. That’s the day Disney takes possession of Fox. Which means that there’s still a faint, hopeless chance that they will go with my idea for the last Avengers: Endgame Easter egg:

In which I underestimated a MCU movie’s opening weekend. Again.

I said $100-120 million domestic for Captain Marvel: it grossed $154 million domestic, and if it doesn’t beat my $600-800 million total prediction at this point I’d be shocked. That would require, say, everybody who wanted to go see the movie already seeing it last weekend, and that’s even more absurd than apparently my previous guess was. Certainly it’s no longer safe to bet that the movie won’t hit a billion.

My mini-review of Captain Marvel.

Short version: it was fine. Not Winter Soldier fine, but I wasn’t expecting that. I expected popcorn movie, and I got popcorn movie.

Tweet of the Day, You WILL Be Made To Buy Disney+ And Hulu edition.

Disney+ for the cute stuff, Hulu for the edgy stuff. Yeah: Disney now has a majority interest in Hulu. Welcome to the 21st century! Turns megacorps are gonna be a thing, after all.

It’s gonna happen, man. — Sayeth the guy with a blog and no film industry connections. But, seriously, obvious ploy is obvious, no?
