Every Marvel & Star Wars Movie Missing from Disney+ at Launch

  • MovieWeb
Disney+ won't launch with every Star Wars movie or everything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The studio released a ridiculous list of every single title available on November 12th. Disney decided to individually tweet out all of these titles on Twitter, one at a time, in a massive thread, clogging up newsfeeds all over the world. But some McU and Star Wars fans noticed certain glaring omissions right of the bat. However, these fans won't have to worry too much longer, except for a few exceptions.

Let's start with the good news. Disney+ will launch with every theatrical Star Wars movie except for The Last Jedi and Solo: A Star Wars Story. Obviously, The Rise of Skywalker won't be available at launch either, but is expected to hit the streamer early in 2020. As for the reasoning behind this decision, Disney still has some titles under contract to Netflix, which is

Gwyneth Paltrow Explains Why She Forgets Which Marvel Movies She's In
Gwyneth Paltrow is sorry she doesn't know too much about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The actress says she hasn't seen many of the movies because she's a "47-year old mother." Paltrow started making headlines over the summer amongst comic book fans when she revealed to Jon Favreau that she had no idea they were in Spider-Man: Homecoming together. She has since revealed she hasn't seen Avengers: Endgame, she didn't know who Sebastian Stan is, and she didn't know Samuel L. Jackson was in the McU, even though they've been in the same movie more than once.

Gwyneth Paltrow has been involved in the McU since the beginning. She has appeared in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame, though she forgets sometimes. As for being aware of the jokes online about her limited McU knowledge, she says, "I never read stuff,

Dominic Cooper Doesn’t Know Why He Wasn’t In Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame featured a major moment for Tony Stark’s character arc when he got to travel to the past and share a heart-to-heart with his late father Howard. It was a moving scene, but it begs the question: why did Marvel go to the trouble of de-aging John Slattery when they could’ve just rehired Dominic Cooper, who’s already played the young Howard Stark in Captain America: The First Avenger and Agent Carter?

Cooper himself was asked this by MTV NewsJosh Horowitz over the summer but didn’t have a good answer. “I don’t know why I wasn’t in it,” he said. The British actor went on to half-admit that he hadn’t actually seen Endgame yet before backtracking on his statement, joking: “I’m trying to get employed by them again, please.”

Ghost Rider’s Cancellation Shows That Marvel Television Is Doomed

The inter-company rivalry between Marvel Studios and Marvel Television continues to fascinate me. Now, with news circulating that Marvel Television won’t be proceeding with their Gabriel Luna-starring Ghost Rider show, insiders are chalking it up to yet another casualty of behind-the-scenes drama between the two Marvel limbs. Theoretically, the two companies should work in harmony, with the idea being that Marvel Studios focuses on big screen McU adventures, while Television spearheads McU TV like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the now-cancelled Netflix shows.

What eventually transpired though were series about Marvel superheroes that were nominally set in the same universe as the movies, and which occasionally made a vague reference to the Battle of New York, but were for the most part entirely separate. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, the Punisher and Iron Fist never stood a chance of making it into any big screen movie, and their isolation

Steve Jobs Called CEO Bob Iger To Tell Him Iron Man 2 Sucked

We’ve got another amusing little tidbit of information to share with you from Disney CEO Bob Iger‘s recently released book, The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons Learned from 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company.

We’ve already shared stories about how Disney almost bought Marvel prior to 2009 but thought it would tarnish the brand. Then there was the story of how George Lucas was disappointed with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Iger also admitted that they were overzealous with Star Wars content.

Now we’ve got an amusing story of how Apple founder Steve Jobs called up Bob Iger just to tell him that Marvel’s Iron Man 2 sucked! The Disney CEO shared:

“When Iron Man 2 came out, Steve [Jobs] took his son to see it and called me the next day. ‘I took Reed to see Iron Man 2 last night,’ he said. ‘It sucked.

Steve Jobs Hated Iron Man 2 & Let Disney CEO Bob Iger Know Directly

  • MovieWeb
Apple founder Steve Jobs was not a big fan of Iron Man 2. He personally called Disney CEO Bob Iger to tell him his review after seeing the movie in theaters. Jon Favreau's Iron Man came out in 2008 and solidified Marvel Studios, while kicking off the Marvel Cinematic Universe at the same time. It was widely praised and it still is to this day. However, 2010's Iron Man 2 was not a critical darling like the first installment, even though it ended up making more money at the box office than its predecessor.

Bob Iger's new memoir, The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons Learned from 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company, sheds some light on his professional relationship with Steve Jobs. The Apple founder did not mince words when it came time to provide Iger with a review of Iron Man 2, which consisted of just two words.

Steve Jobs Personally Called Disney CEO to Say He Hated ‘Iron Man 2’

Steve Jobs Personally Called Disney CEO to Say He Hated ‘Iron Man 2’
Steve Jobs is not a fan of “Iron Man 2.” An excerpt from Bob Iger’s recently-released book “The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons Learned from 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company” has gone viral for revealing that Jobs called Iger personally to complain about the 2010 superhero sequel. Jobs was blunt with Iger, telling the Disney executive that “Iron Man 2” was more or a less a horrible movie.

Iger writes in the novel (via Screen Rant), “When ‘Iron Man 2’ came out, Steve [Jobs] took his son to see it and called me the next day. ‘I took Reed to see ‘Iron Man 2′ last night,’ he said. ‘It sucked.'”

Iron Man 2” opened in theaters nationwide in May 2010 from Paramount Pictures. Although Disney and Iger were not involved with the development or distribution of “Iron Man 2,” the sequel’s release took place less than a year

Disney Executives Originally Feared Marvel Movies Would ‘Tarnish’ the Studio’s Image

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and Marvel Studios make up one of the most profitable partnerships in Hollywood history. This year, the studios released “Avengers: Endgame” and “Captain Marvel” ($1.1 billion), both of which are in the year’s top 5 grossers. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is such an integral part of Disney that it’s strange to think of a time when the House of Mouse was scared to take a chance on Marvel comic book movies.

Disney executive Bob Iger’s new book “The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons Learned from 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company” includes a memorable passage in which he remembers the studio being fearful of buying Marvel (via /Film). Disney acquired Marvel Entertainment on August 31, 2009 in a deal estimated at $4.24 billion. At that point, Marvel had already begun the McU by releasing titles like “Iron Man,” “Thor,” and “Captain America: The First Avenger” through Paramount.

George Lucas Was Disappointed With Lack of Originality in ‘Force Awakens,’ Disney Chief Bob Iger Says
“Star Wars” creator George Lucas wasn’t a fan of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” when he first saw it, Disney CEO Bob Iger claims in his new book, “The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons Learned From 15 Years as CEO of The Walt Disney Company.” The recently published biography includes plenty of juicy tidbits about Iger’s past and current run at Disney, including a number of compelling anecdotes about the many big names and creative types in his orbit. After the purchase of Lucasfilm by Disney in 2012, that list came to include Lucas, whose original space opera has become a driving force for the House of Mouse.

And yet Lucas wasn’t too jazzed about the first film to come from the Disney acquisition, the J.J. Abrams helmed hit “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” In his tell-all (via Screen Rant), Iger writes of Lucas’ first viewing of the film:

Fun Ratatouille Fan Theory Debunked by Director Brad Bird

  • MovieWeb
One particularly heartwarming Ratatouille fan theory has officially been debunked. The Pixar movie is a fan-favorite, so many were on board to watch it again with a brand-new set of eyes. Looking at a movie from another point of view is part of the fun about being a fan in general, especially when it can get one to think outside the box and find hidden connections that may or may not have been done on purpose. Ratatouille director Brad Bird has revealed that the connections from within his movie are not what they seem.

In Ratatouille, Patton Oswalt voices Remy the rat. The animal has an uncanny sense of taste and smell, which brings him into the world of cooking. He begins to cook at Gusteau's Restaurant in Paris through the help of Alfredo Linguini. Notorious food critic Anton Ego has held a grudge against the restaurant and the deceased

Update (4:00pm Et): According to “The Irishman” producers, Jane Rosenthal and Emma Tillinger Koskoff, and casting director Ellen Lewis, “Mickey Rourke was never asked to be in “The Irishman” nor was he ever even thought of, discussed or considered to be in the movie.”

Earlier: “The Irishman” starring Mickey Rourke? It could have happened, at least according to “The Wrestler” Oscar nominee. Rourke told the Italian television program “Live – Non è la D’Urso” (via The Independent) that he could have been considered for a role in Martin Scorsese’s upcoming gangster epic had leading actor Robert De Niro not refused to work with him. Rourke said the two actors had a falling out while working together on Alan Parker’s 1987 psychological horror movie “Angel Heart.”

“Marty Scorsese wanted to meet me for a movie with Al Pacino, Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro,” Rourke said, referencing “The Irishman.
