You’ve seen the box office numbers, right? Marvel’s Black Panther is a record-breaking, massive success — so it shouldn’t come as any surprise to learn that the King of Wakanda is getting his very own sequel. At this point, it would only really be news if Marvel lost their damn minds and decided not to make a Black Panther sequel. I mean, it’d basically be definitive proof that we live in the Bad Place.
Netflix’s scramble to cut some kind of deal with Disney after the company announced their own Disney-exclusive streaming service last month seems to have come to naught, as CEO Bob Iger announced that Marvel and Star Wars movies would also be among the films appearing exclusively on the new app Disney hopes to launch by 2019. Better get those Moana viewings in fast, folks.
These days, it'd take at least two years to watch only only one season's worth of #PeakTV, a quarter of which won't even be around a second year. You’d need some sort of absurd television guidance periodical to navigate it all, but because we love you' we've put together an in-depth look at 30 major must-see premieres kicking off as early as August 31.
Come, wrap some barbed wire around your bats and grab a coffee in Stars Hollow, as we descend into the madness that is Fall TV 2016!
Acquiring Lucasfilm and Marvel were just two minor steps in Disney’s grand plan to eventually own everything you love and control your life as Entertainment Overlord Supreme of the Planet Earth. But to be fair, they are a benevolent god. A caring god. A god that wants to make its riches available to you, should you want to indulge yourself. So prepare thyself: TV channels based entire on Marvel and Star Wars content may be coming.
Before Marvel's Thor finally hit theaters in 2011, there were multiple attempts from directors to make a movie based on the popular comic character. Way back in 1991, Sam Raimi (who had just directed Darkman) pitched both Stan Lee and Marvel his take on the Norse god, but the studio “didn’t get it” according to the director. Probably a good thing, because if they did, we might not have the Avengers movies. This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which heads to Asgard with Thor!
