Spider-Man: Far From Home

Though it started to look like Spider-Man would be going back to Sony after their partnership with Disney came to a crashing end, a surprising deal was able to save the webslinger from the corporate snap that would have dusted the character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Though both parties agreed on new terms, it was who brought them together that made it all happen. According to new reports, it was Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home star Tom Holland‘s last-minute heroics that were able to save Spidey from being lost to the MCU. More on the report below.

Jojo Rabbit

Last week’s reports that Disney would stop 20th Century Fox’s film development and focus more on key franchises like Avatar didn’t come as a huge surprise. The studio was bound to cut back on some of the smaller lesser-known properties. And the news comes in the wake of Fox Studios films operating at a loss of $170 million for the quarter.

And now we are getting a new idea of how Disney might determine which films will be a part of the release slate, and which ones might fall by the wayside. We’re also learning that Disney is worried about edgier upcoming titles like Taika Waititi‘s Jojo Rabbit. More on all of this below.

Avengers: Endgame

There was a point in time when it looked like Avengers: Endgame wasn’t going to make it past James Cameron‘s Avatar as the highest-grossing movie of all-time. Though it was a pretty arbitrary milestone that is practically meaningless, because we all know which is the better of the two films.

Not that the title would have given Avengers: Endgame any more validation it needs, but it has happened, as confirmed by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, who announced the news to a packed Hall H at the San Diego Comic-Con. More on all of this below.

We’ve always expected that Disney would be making some major cuts to Fox since they acquired the entertainment assets back in March.

Among the first things to go were some employees. At the time, some 4,000 employees were to be affected by this merger, which also included Disney shutting down Fox 2000, a branch of Fox that released films like The Devil Wears Prada, The Fault in Our Stars, and The Hate U Give. Now Disney is moving on to other projects by cutting out even more titles. More on this below.

Dave Bautista Says He May Not Return For ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3’

Dave Bautista May Not Return For Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Many have been vocal about how James Gunn was unjustly fired after years old obscene tweets resurfaced because of an alt-right ultra conservative hit job. But none have been more vocal than Dave Bautista. The actor who plays Drax has gone on record saying he would consider not returning to reprise his role. That was followed by an ultimatum that if they did not use Gunn’s script, he would walk out on the project entirely, regardless of contractual obligations. Since then, Disney and Marvel Studios have decided to put the sequel on hold until they can figure out the next move.

While it’s still not clear if the studio will use Gunn’s script – he had finished an early draft before he was fired – it appears Bautista may not return at all. More on the story below.

Disney Stands By Decision To Fire James Gunn

It has been weeks since Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn was fired over years-old tweets unearthed by alt-right personalities with a vendetta. Since that time, there has been an overwhelming amount of support from fans and the cast to get the former director rehired so that he could direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

However, it’s being reported that Disney will be standing by its decision to fire the director. And in a surprising turn of events, Marvel Studios supports their parent company’s decision. More on the story below.

The Avengers Post-Credits Scene

This week marked big changes for Marvel Studios. Marvel Entertainment CEO Isaac “Ike” Perlmutter lost his power over the superhero studio that has grossed over $7 billion dollars in seven years, leaving Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige to report to Disney Head Of Live-Action Movies Alan Horn. Perlmutter will retain oversight on Marvel Television, but the restructuring meant that Kevin Feige would have more control over budgets, casting, etc when it comes to everything Marvel Studios. It’s not clear what this could mean for the overall shared universe with the films being connected with TV. But I’ve heard that there isn’t much of a connection between the two parties at all. But that is besides the point.

Now it appears that the shake-up isn’t over yet, and this could be a big one. There are two reports coming out saying that Marvel’s Creative Committee – their version of the Pixar Brain Trust – will now dissolve. More on this story below.

Kevin Feige

While most would think that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is the top man who reports to Disney CEO Bob Iger, that really isn’t the case. He actually reports to Marvel Entertainment CEO Isaac “Ike” Perlmutter, a reclusive executive who is known for micromanaging the superhero entertainment giant. However, Feige has expressed frustration at the working relationship. So after venting said frustration to Iger and Disney live-action head Alan Horn, the company did some corporate restructuring, which gives Perlmutter less control over Marvel Studios and more to Feige.

More on the story below.
