Disney giving Loki and Scarlet Witch their own miniseries.

Interesting, no?  “Marvel Studios will give a solo spotlight to both Tom Hiddleston’s Loki and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, with each getting a TV miniseries to be offered exclusively through the Disney streaming service that is expected to launch in late 2019.”

Looks like MCU’s Phase Four is on track.

Word’s going down that a Marvel Phase 4 flick’s going to start filming in the UK next year.  If I had to guess, from the three possibilities mentioned (Doctor Strange 2, Black Widow, or The Eternals*), I’d say that it’s going to be the Doctor Strange sequel… what’s that?  There was That Thing That Happened?

Strong hints of future Fantastic Four flicks in Disney’s conference call.

A very interesting statement here, from the Mouse’s Q3 2018 earnings conference call:

Our strategy is to give the studio what it needs to continue to do what it does best and to also expand the brand’s high-quality storytelling into the DTC space with original television and film projects. 20th Century Fox Film is yet another example. It gives us the opportunity to be associated with and to expand iconic movie franchises like Avatar, Marvel’s X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Deadpool, Planet of the Apes, Kingsman, and many others. We’re obviously very excited to leverage the Fox assets to enhance and accelerate our DTC strategy. But I want to be clear that we remain incredibly supportive and enthusiastic about the movie theater experience. It’s a vital part of our company and in fact, our studio just crossed $6 billion in global box office for the third year in a row.

Fox-Disney merger: RISE OF THE FOXBAT.

Foxbat‘ is a very obscure gaming reference, which is why I’m taking that particular suggestion. Anyway: “Shareholders of 21st Century Fox and Disney have voted to approve Disney’s $71.3 billion buyout of major Fox assets.  Shareholders gathered Friday morning at the New York Hilton for separate meetings to vote on the historic transaction that the companies first set back in December. Both meetings were brief, lasting less than 15 minutes.”

The deal is finalizing in the first half of 2019, which is Just. Enough. Time. for the MCU to put together a teaser credit of the Fantastic Four at the end of Avengers 4.  Or maybe the X-Men.  But if Disney/Marvel is smart, they’ll take a slap at a F4 movie; if they can make something watchable, then they win.  They just simply win the Comic Book Movie wars, and it’s all just mopping up at that point.  Bet big, win big.

Disney to finally kill off the loose ends in Clone Wars, once and for all.

They’re not putting it that bleakly: “The animated series, which last aired in 2008, will get 12 new episodes on the forthcoming Disney streaming service.” …But let’s be honest, shall we?  There are any number of characters in Clone Wars that need to be given honorable deaths prior to Revenge of the Sith, and a twelve-episode direct-to-streaming final season sounds like it’d do the trick. Especially since Disney wants to hit the ground running with its streaming service, too.  So they might as well go for a Grand Harvesting. (more…)
