Excited for all three to a degree.

But also very worried that the stories about Kit Harrington joining the MCU are him being wildly miscast as Marc Spector.

Wolverine maybe?

He'd probably do better than Richard Armitage's run.

"Rawr, I'm Logan, a drunk, verbally abusive felon and now I'm murdering you with these claws that come out of my hands! Rawr rawr!"
"Oh no, I have been murdered by the Weapon X mutant, Wolverine!"

Marvel and Stitcher's Wolverine - The Show in which other Characters Talk about Wolverine - is brought to you by Squarespace.

Kit Harington is Black Knight
Feel free to make your own type casting jokes here.

Should have been Martin Lawrence.

So that's two GoT actors in that movie (Richard Madden being the other). It's turning into Xmen

Apparently they're converting/merging the Marvel accounts (like for Marvel Unlimited) with Disney accounts. I wonder if there's going to be some Disney+-gives-Marvel-Unlimited kinda thing.

30 minutes talking about the upcoming Phase 4 movies.

Last day for the three years of Disney Plus for $140. Go to D23.com if interested.

Normally $7 a month.

My initial thoughts were that is stupid to lock in a future service I've not ever used, but then I thought how much we'd spend on Star Wars and Marvel movies (not to mention Pixar) over the next three years, and inevitably we'll want to watch the tie in shows. One trip to the movies probably costs us $70 for the three of us (IMAX add probably $10-$15 more).

My only reservation is that there might be another type of deal. They've already talked about Hulu bundles, etc. So not sure how this will affect it.

I think Disney is also going to work like CBS in that they'll release episodes over weeks instead of in the Netflix style where they dump whole series/seasons at once. Probably because the episodic conflict will be limited compared with Netflix, at least initially.

I'm tempted, but if we can't do downloads to iPad or similar like I can with Netflix or Amazon Prime or movies bought through Amazon, if loses value to me.

Just saw that.
I'm now trying to redeem the deal, but failing.

Takes awhile for it to show up on your account. I got an email when it was there.

I'm just not convinced that these Disney/Marvel shows are going to be on par with the Netflix shows (hell, even the Netflix shows weren't really on par with the Netflix shows). My suspicion is that its going to be far closer to Agents of SHIELD quality, or more likely, Arrowverse stuff. And while enjoyed all of that stuff, I wouldn't be super-motivated to jump on to yet another subscription service to get it.

I'm in for the movie access.
I did get it working, so tithing to Disney again.

The Mandalorian trailer alone is better quality than AoS or anything done on the CW.

I get locking yourself in for a low price; it especially makes sense if you've got kids who'll use it. I just strongly suspect I'll end up paying Disney less than $50/year for their online service. I'll see the movies in theaters for the zeitgeist so no savings there and the television shows aren't all that tempting for me, surprisingly.

I liked a lot of what they did with the Netflix roster, and with Legion and with a lot of the other more experimental bits of Agents of Shield. I strongly suspect we'll not be getting anything remotely experimental or new with the Disney+ series.

As far as the other bits, I was never a Disney kid and Gargoyles isn't on there. Modern shows like 2018 Duck Tales has only the first season and isn't simulcast as far as I can tell.

I think the Disney+ Marvel and Star Wars shows won't be edgy like the Netflix shows. If they want to do shows like those, they'll be on Hulu.

That said, I've enjoyed SHIELD, The Runaways, and Cloak and Dagger. Don't love them, but feel they've been worth my time overall. I suspect the new Marvel Disney+ shows will at least exceed those on acting and directing, so if we watch a half dozen of those in my household, the 3 years is worth it to us.

Amazon has 4K Into the Spiderverse for $4. Movies Anywhere I think, so will work across all the stores once bought.

(Make sure you pick the UHD option for this price)

Wow rent for $8 or buy for $4? Tough choice.

Maybe you have a minimalist lifestyle and don't want to be burdened by possessions?

It's all good. You don't technically own digital content anyway.

No you don't, Sony. I don't care how funny that is, it won't distract me from hating you.

You hate Sony?

He hates not starting Sony Michel in fantasy football over the weekend. Wait, that's actually me...

For pulling Spider-Man out of the MCU.

So do you also hate Disney in equal measure? Because from what I've read they're both massive, soulless corporate entities playing hardball with one another in an attempt to get as much money as they can.

Disney makes the content we like, so they’re good.

I honestly think Disney is the villain in this scenario. It seemed they went into negotiations with no intention of negotiating. They cut off their Spider-Man to spite their MCU.

Disney is absolutely the villain in this scenario.

Of course, Sony is an evil corporation too, but not the 'villain' in the Spider-Man situation.

And Disney is one of the most genuinely evil corporations in the world.
