If you're not a MCU fan then this doesn't affect you in any way. If you are an MCU fan then why wouldn't you want this?
Thats my take but people are building artificial walls about how they wont understand if they dont watch everything
If you're not that dedicated to the franchise than you won't have to pay a yearly fee and can pay for one month and get all the relevant content.
The Avengers attack on Hydra at the start was information given to them thru SHIELD via Agent Coulson in Agents of SHIELD.
Then it's a bit overselling to say the shows are necessary innit? Might as well say there will be more references to other media, which isn't all that out of the ordinary with a comic franchise.
But that is what he did say. "Understand everything" just means there will be mentions of what happened in the shows, much like how you don't have to watch every MCU film to understand what is going on in Avengers movies.
Lol I swear I was just typing something else. I mean .. there is a lot of that in everything . Separate art from the artist and all that.
I thought it was something more, I dunno, specific than a couple of offhanded comments, haha. It didn't affect anyone not watching AOS, the events of the movies were only occasionally mentioned in the show when they happened (WS, AOU, etc) and the only real crossovers that were of any consequence were Fury, Sif and... that was it. for some reason y brain is telling me that Maria Hill showed up, yet at the same time that she didn't.The Avengers attack on Hydra at the start was information given to them thru SHIELD via Agent Coulson in Agents of SHIELD.
The carrier Nick Fury has at the end that he "got from a friend" was from Agent Coulson who had SHIELD build it, also in Agents of SHIELD.
IDK why the guy you replied to thinks it sucked tho, IMO this is the perfect kind of its all connected. If you didn't watch AoS you're not really negatively affected, but if you did watch AoS it's just a little bit of clarity.
It really stands out when some of the posters complaining have been in multiple discussion threads for these Disney+ shows already discussing the contents of said shows, but are "surprised" by this announcement somehow.
Because not everyone has the time (or willpower) to watch several bland shows in addition to several bland movies just to keep updated on a single story.
Ok nobody is forcing you now. Not every person that watched endgame watched Ant-Man and the wasp.
There shouldn't be a single doubt that Feigi is over selling this, he's trying to push subs for Disney+ and using his Branch at Disney to hype it up.
He said you’d need it to understand everything.
The first show is more than a year away, I doubt Disney+ won’t be rolled out everywhere by then
lmao I'm sure you're absolutely gutted about not being able to keep up with what you describe as "bland" movies.
Do they have anything of note that looks enticing lined up or announced outside of those properties when it comes to original series? Nope. They've got re-imagined remakes of mediocre properties coming though.
Depends on your definition of "of note" is. They have series that may not entice you personally, but they are definitely not aiming for just MCU or Star Wars audiences.
It's obviously harder to write a film that needs to fit the continuity of 20 previous films and also has to dovetail into the plots of several upcoming future films that other people are simultaneously working on than it is writing a film that's self-contained, what do you mean "where am I getting this?"
The movies do stand on their own. Feige is a fan of movies being able to stand on their own, but having enough there that hardcore fans keep getting something out of it on their 2nd, 3rd, 10th rewatch. IIRC he loved knowing that everyone in the cantina had a name and backstory and whatnot.
That article has such a weird title like it's some risky bet. Disney's "Media Networks" ie TV revenue is 44% of its operating income, it's Parks and Resorts is 34% of the companies revenue. "Studio Entertainment" ie films is only 15%. Of course, Iger is putting a lot into streaming, that's where the company's money is, not the film business.Disney+ leads a wave of billion-dollar Netflix competitors that are transforming the entertainment industry and launching a new age of ambition (and anxiety) as Iger, Kevin Mayer and team explain their all-in strategy: "We're locked and loaded."www.hollywoodreporter.com
