Marvel X-Men and Avengers crossover

Marvel Comics may share one universe, but when it comes to films, that’s a different story.

Sony has their Spider-Man-Less universe, Disney has the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and FOX has X-Men and Fantastic Four. But since Disney acquired Fox earlier this year, for $71 billion, many are hoping things are going to change. And it looks like that may be happening. Just how soon remains to be a question.

Disney CEO Bob Iger recently spoke about what the merger could do for their Marvel properties. But one thing is for sure, Iger believes that there should not be “two Marvels.” Check out the story here below.

RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET

Last month, Disney invited a select group of journalists to Walt Disney Animation Studios in Burbank, CA, where they previewed Ralph Breaks the Internet, the sequel to 2012’s Wreck-It Ralph. This is one of the first major theatrical animated sequels Disney will be releasing. Set in a new world outside of the Mr. Litwak’s arcade, Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) embark on a quest to find a replacement part for Vanellope’s game Sugar Rush on the Internet. On their journey, they will see that the Internet is much larger than anything they’ve ever imagined.

We were able to share with you some of the things we learned about the upcoming sequel. Now I sit down for a one on three interview with Josie Trinidad (head of story), Jason Hand (story artist) and Natalie Nourigat (story artist) to talk about developing a story like Ralph Breaks the Internet, making sure their voices are heard during discussions, what stays on and what gets thrown out, saving the character Knowsmore, and more. Check out our interview with the story team below.

RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET

There is a lot of work that goes into animating a film like Ralph Breaks the Internet. And the highly anticipated Wreck-It Ralph sequel had to bring in something new and fresh to keep fans and audiences interested. So what better way to do that than to take Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) out of Mr. Litwak’s Arcade, and throw them into the Internet. Seriously, how much damage could lovable arcade misfits cause? Well, as the title suggests, quite a lot.

We got a chance to join our fellow journalists to catch a sneak peek of Ralph Breaks the Internet. While a lot of the footage was still rough and unfinished, it looked like the sequel will be a promising follow-up. During our time, we got to talk to different teams who contributed to the film, including the story, environment, and more. So how frequently does the story team have to collaborate with directors Rich Moore and Phil Johnston? How do they create those environments? How do you visualize the Internet? Find out below with 50 Things You Need To Know About Ralph Breaks The Internet.

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.

Walt Disney Studios logo - Disney Play

If you are looking for Disney content on streaming services, you are most likely going to find it either on Hulu or Netflix. At least right now. But that will all change come 2019, when the mega studio will launch its own streaming service that will have not only its back catalog of films, but also new and original content like live-action versions of Lady and The Tramp and a new Star Wars television show.

The upcoming service has been unnamed for almost two years since it was announced in 2017. But now, we can refer to it as Disney Play. And for those who are wondering about pricing, there is also some very good news. According to a new report, it will be cheaper than Netflix. More on the story here below.
