Claim/Rumor: Woke Disney Orders Marvel To Re-Evaluate Its Production of Shit Sandwiches, Demands More Quality In Endless Production of Undifferentiated Shit Sandwiches Over Sheer Quantity of Shit Sandwiches

I would file this more under "a good guess" than a "rumor."

There's a legitimate SEC filing advising that Disney's going to do some restructuring under Iger. It's that vague.

The rumor takes off from that and proposes slightly less vague specifics, which is where the "Good Guess" comes in: It's what Disney should do.

They should stop making crap movies, is what they should do.

Will they?

Doubt it!



New Rumor Claims Marvel Studios Is "Re-Evaluating Its Release Lineup For Phases 5 & 6" Over Concerns About Poor Quality

By John F. Trent

A new rumor claims that The Walt Disney Company and Marvel Studios are looking at changing their release lineup for their upcoming Phase 5 and Phase 6 films and television shows over internal concerns about the poor quality of shows and movies in Phase 4.

This rumor comes on the heels of The Walt Disney Company announcing that Bob Iger returned to the company as CEO and replaced Bob Chapek. Along with the announcement of Iger's return, The Walt Disney Company revealed in a SEC filing that they would be making significant changes to the company's structure and specifically how it approaches distributing its content.

The SEC document states, "As contemplated by the leadership change announcement, we anticipate that within the coming months Mr. Iger will initiate organizational and operating changes within the Company to address the Board's goals. While the plans are in early stages, changes in our structure and operations, including within DMED (and including possibly our distribution approach and the businesses/distribution platforms selected for the initial distribution of content), can be expected."

"The restructuring and change in business strategy, once determined, could result in impairment charges," it adds.

DMED is the division that oversees Disney's parks and movies.

...

Following this confirmation that The Walt Disney Company will be making significant changes to the way it does business and specifically the way it distributes its content, a rumor from The Cosmic Circus claims "Marvel Studios is currently re-evaluating its release lineup for Phases 5 & 6."

The site adds, "As Phase 4 comes to a close, we've been informed of internal negative feedback about how Phase 4 was handled regarding product distribution and quality."

In order to correct the poor performance and quality of the Phase 4 films and television series, Marvel Studios will be implementing "a quality-over-quantity approach to these phases."

One of the changes that the site claims Marvel Studios will implement is a change in the release schedule as well as changes in format of various projects.

As you probably know, Bob Iger has doubled down on woke content. He has claimed Disney wouldn't be embroiled in political fights, but only because, when properly understood -- when understood the way a coastal lifestyle progressive understands it -- Disney's nonstop groomer programming isn't "political" at all.

It's just "making the world a better place."

And you thick-skulled low-browed God-Bothering deplorable scumbags had better just accept that.

As seen in video obtained by independent journalist Christopher F. Rufo, the CEO would offer his first thoughts on the subject after being asked whether or not Disney will "stay out of making political statements" under his tenure.

"I think there's a misperception here about wat politics is," answered Iger. "I think that some of the subjects that have proven to be 'controversial' as it relates to Disney have been branded political, and I don't necessarily believe they are."

"I don't think that when you are telling stories and attempting to be a good citizen of the world, that that's political," he affirmed. "It's just not how I view it."

The Groomer material isn't "political." He'll stay out of politics because none of Disney's never-ending slate of Gay Teenager Groomer Cartoons ever were political in the first place.

"Do I like the company being embroiled in controversy?" he then asked rhetorically of the crowd. "Of course not, it can be distracting, and it can have a negative impact on the company."

"And to the extent that i can work to quiet things down, I'm going to do that," added Iger. "But I think it's important to put in perspective what some of these subjects are and not just simply brand them as political."

The onus is on you to stop lying and calling these Groomer Projects "political."

Later, when asked for his "stance on the 'Don't Say Gay' situation", the CEO would explain, "Well, first of all, our LGBTQ employees are very important to us and we care deeply about them."

"That is a given," he declared. "Secondly, this company has been telling stories for a hundred years, and those stories have had a meaningful, positive impact on the world. And one of the reasons that they've had a meaningful, positive impact is one of our core values is inclusion, acceptance, and tolerance. And we can't lose that. We just can't lose that."


"I think about Black Panther and the impact that had on the world, or a film like Coco," Iger continued. "I could go on and on. How we actually change the world for the good must continue."

"When you tell stories, there's a delicate balance," he said. "You're talking to an audience, but it's also important to listen. It's important to have respect for the people that you're serving and not have disdain for them."

So there's the big sop to his traditionalist customers: He will keep making groomer content, and dismiss your objections that Disney is stepping in as a virtual parent to teach your children about homosexuality before you wish to teach them about it, but he won't have "disdain" for you as he dismisses your desires.

Isn't that swell?

To this end, he then admitted, "that said, we're not going to make everyone happy all the time, and we're not going to try to.

"We're certainly not going to lessen our core values in order to make everyone happy all the time," he then assured his employees. "So, it's complicated, and there's a balance."

Now, Iger gets to the real heart of it: When people ask him, how do you get to decide what propaganda to feed to our children?, he responds: Because I'm a storyteller.

Actually he's a soulless executive who just buys IPs and companies and then destroys them, but apparently he's decided he's "a storyteller" now.

"At one point," the CEO recalled. "I said, 'We do what we believe is right', and then someone criticized me, 'Who are you to say what's right?'"

"When you're in a job like mine, or you are responsible for storytelling, you get paid to have a sense for what is right," concluded Chapek. "Not everybody will agree with you, that's just not the way the world is these days, but that doesn't mean you should stop trying to do the right thing."

One amusing thing from a week or so ago: After attacking everyone who pointed out that the MCU was becoming the M-She-U, leftwing movie reviewers and bloggers are now admitting it is in fact now the M-She-U, and they're even admitting... it's not very good, and it's pretty obnoxious to just replace every male character with a female doppleganger.

And how are the ratings for the woke lesbian teen romance reboot of Willow? In the toilet, of course, as far as audience rating -- 38%.

And also the worst ratings as far as viewership for any show on Disney Plus, according to the partial ratings available from Samba. Disney won't release its ratings, but Samba TV carries Disney, and Samba TV releases its ratings.

According to Samba TV, only 481k households watched Willow in its first five days of release -- and that is with TWO episodes released.

Since Samba TV has been releasing numbers, Willow marks the lowest ratings for a show on Disney Plus, much lower than Marvel's Ms. Marvel series which saw only 775k households tune in during the first five days and lower than She-Hulk's 1.5 million households in the first four days.

And here's one more amusing thing: Bernard Hill, who played King Theoden in the real Lord of the Rings, says he's not going to watch Amazon's fake Lord of the Rings cash-in, because it's obviously a worthless corporate cash-in.



Hill spoke with British outlet Metro where he made it abundantly clear he had no interested in watching Prime Video's The Rings of Power. He told the outlet, "No, not interested."

Hill then elaborated as to why, "It's a money-making venture and I'm not interested in watching that or being in it. Good luck to them and all that stuff but it's not like the real thing."

Hill was then asked if Tolkien's work would have been better left to Jackson's original trilogy. He responded, "Completely, yes."

He went on, "I think they were pushing it when they made The Hobbit. The Hobbit's a tiny book."

Viggo Mortensen was asked the same question and also had little interest in the Amazon/Asylum brand Lord of the Rings knockoff.

Oh, by the way: Jennifer Lawrence says, You're welcome.


Unless that was edited in, then even MSNBC sees that as a self-aggrandizing b***shit.
