Spider-Man is Back in the MCU

Put the torches and pitchforks away, my friends. Spidey is staying with the MCU.

Whatever money issues between Sony and Disney that were an impasse have, apparently, been sorted out. So we can look forward to seeing Spider-Man in other MCU movies as well as MCU characters appearing in Spider-Man films.

Happy Friday everyone!

Disney-Fox Merger Approved By Shareholders

Variety has more details, but the short version is that the film rights to X-Men, Fantastic Four, and their related characters now go to Disney (who owns Marvel comics). The price tag? Just $71.3 Billion. No big deal.

Let the wild speculation begin! Doctor Doom as the next “Big Bad?” Magneto? Galactus?

Personally, I’m just holding out for a Firefly/Serenity ride at Disneyland (“Oh God, oh God, We’re All Gonna Die: The Ride”). Fingers crossed.

In 2016, It was good to be Disney

The final box office tallies are in for 2016, and Disney made six of the top ten grossing films of the year. Of course, it helps to have Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel in your inventory. Disney’s performance this past year is the first time a movie studio broke $1 billion in ticket sales.

  1. Finding Dory ($486 million)
  2. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ($451 million)
  3. Captain America: Civil War ($408 million)
  4. The Secret Life of Pets ($368 million)
  5. The Jungle Book ($364 million)
  6. Deadpool ($363 million)
  7. Zootopia ($341 million)
  8. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($330 million)
  9. Suicide Squad ($325 million)
  10. Doctor Strange ($230 million)
