MCU Movies to Move from Netflix to Disney's Streaming Service

MCU Movies to Move from Netflix to Disney's Streaming Service

With the Disney-branded entertainment service, Disney will have more control over its movies and TV shows from creation to distribution. Disney is hoping they can use their Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm libraries, along with NatGeo to build on an already extensive library of shows and movies from Disney.

This deal is getting worse all the time.

This isn't exactly surprising news; we always expected Disney to bring the MCU "home", but it does mean one of the few remaining members of Earth's mightiest heroes who will still be around to protect Netflix from evil is this guy.

The streaming service is set to launch in 2019 with several programs, including a "live-action version" of "Lady and the Tramp", as well as a live-action "Star Wars" series directed by Jon Favreau that will cost about $100 million for 10 episodes.

When Thanos snapped his fingers he halved the universe's population, but that seems like mercy compared to what Disney will be doing to Netflix when the Mouse House launches its very own streaming service next year, because Disney will be moving every movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to its own site.

A recent report implied that Disney was in talks to reacquire the cable rights for the original trilogy and the prequels. This service will rival Netflix, though Iger has said in the past that it will cost "significantly less" than Netflix.

Overall, Disney posted earnings of $1.87 per share excluding certain items, an increase from a year earlier, but below Wall Street's average forecast of $1.95, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. The average estimate of four analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research was for adjusted earnings of $1.97 (roughly Rs. 133) per share.

Comcast is still locked in a bidding war with Fox for control of Sky, the United Kingdom satellite TV distributor.

Shares of Disney, which have climbed almost 9 percent so far this year, slipped 1.1 percent in after-hours trading on Tuesday to $115.45. Gains in products related to the Avengers weren't enough to offset lower revenue from "Spider-Man" and "Cars".
