For a brief moment in time, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) seemed like it was in trouble. This is because due to an inability to negotiate a deal, both Sony and Marvel announced that they would no longer be working together, meaning that the third Spider-Man film would not be part of the MCU.
Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. franchise contains video game characters from a variety of games and publishers. Now, we imagine that Nintendo probably has a ton of ideas as to what kind of characters they want in the game, and that they might not necessarily be successful with all their requests.
Disney Plus’ The Mandalorian proved to be a huge hit. The series was highly entertaining and we’re sure that many are eagerly anticipating the release of the second season. However, one of the aspects of the show was actually the appearance of what has become affectionately known as “Baby Yoda”.
Apple TV+ is fairly new to the scene having launched just last year, but according to a report from the Wall Street Journal, it seems to be doing pretty well because in terms of subscribers, Apple TV+ is reported to have more subscribers compared to the likes of Hulu, who has been around for a while, and the recently-launched Disney Plus.
From time to time, streaming services such as Netflix remove shows from its catalog. This is normal as licenses expire and as such, shows are dropped. However, it seems that Disney Plus, which has only been around for a few months, is already removing some shows from its catalog, which definitely isn’t a good sign for subscribers.
Many have been wondering about the fate of the Deadpool franchise ever since Disney acquired Fox. This is because of Disney’s approach of movies in which they try to keep them as family-friendly as possible to cater to a larger audience, and obviously Deadpool is not your family-friendly movie.
Earlier this year, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk had hinted that video streaming platforms such as Netflix and YouTube would soon be coming to Tesla vehicles. Given that you can already play games on Tesla’s infotainment system, we suppose it’s not a stretch to think that you would also be able to stream video as well.
While Disney might have been late to the streaming game, they certainly have managed to capture the attention of many with its flagship Star Wars series, The Mandalorian. The reviews of the series have been fantastic and the first season just ended rather amazingly (if you’ve seen it, you can probably agree).
This month, we will be seeing the last Star Wars movie involving the current storyline and characters. It is quite an epic series that initially started out as a trilogy, but has since expanded to nine movies over the past few decades. As such, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said that in the future, Star Wars films will be moving away from the trilogy structure.
Movie scripts are precious because it essentially tells the whole story of the movie. As such, movie studios are very protective of these scripts where in some cases, certain actors are only given parts of the script that are related to them. This helps to prevent leaks and also spoilers as the actor in question won’t know too much about what’s going on.
So Disney Plus was only just launched but it seems that in less than a week, the service has since been hacked where thousands of Disney customers have had their accounts compromised and stolen, where they have appeared on the dark web where they are available for purchase.
With there being so many streaming services available in the market today, you might think that customers who be apprehensive when it comes to signing up for yet another streaming service. Now, Disney is kind of late to the game, but it seems that despite them being late, they are racking up customers at breakneck speeds.
Password sharing is when users of a service share a single account. This is usually frowned upon and is typically not allowed under the terms of service agreement, but people do it anyway because it saves them from having multiple subscriptions. We’ve seen some companies attempt to clamp down on this behavior, but Disney seems to be OK with it, for now.
While streaming services are exciting, the problem is that in terms of availability, they can be limited. Take for example with Hulu, the service is still not available in many parts of the world, leaving some users frustrated and turning to piracy in order to watch certain shows. However, Disney seems to be working to prevent that from happening.
