    Anyone know what the mask situation is at Disney theme parks?

    Disney should replace anyone in the Marvel Franchise that thinks they are irreplaceable. No one is irreplaceable, even Kevin Fiege......enough already ! Disney owns the Marvel Franchise, not Fiege or Johansson or anyone else, and is about time that Disney drop the hammer on these folks!

    ‘Black Widow’ Legal Battle: Inside the Fallout After Scarlett Johansson Sues Disney.
    Jul 30, 2021 10:01am PT
    By Brent Lang, Gene Maddaus

    "Left out of the legal wrangling is a growing consensus that Marvel missed the mark with “Black Widow.” The film set a pandemic opening record with it $80 million debut in North America, but grosses have flatlined in the following weeks. Disney initially said that the film had made $60 million in Disney Plus rentals, but it has yet to provide any more transparency into those numbers in subsequent weeks, which could be a sign they were disappointing. The studio believes that the film, which currently has a $320 million global gross, will fall short of making $500 million worldwide, and views the film as more of a single than a home run. By way of context, in pre-pandemic times, many Marvel movies topped $1 billion at the box office. Johansson’s camp is speculating that the cannibalization caused by the Disney Plus launch potentially cost the actress $50 million in backend compensation. Rival studio executives think that’s overly generous, pegging her likely payout in a world without COVID at half that amount. Adding to the melee, the actress’s agency, CAA, is slamming Disney for disclosing that Johansson made $20 million in upfront salary, calling it an attempt to “weaponize her success as an artist and businesswoman.” Everyone is looking to land blows in a dispute that’s growing increasingly acrimonious."

    Johansson's suit may be a problem for Disney's dual platform roll out strategy unless this is just a matter of structuring star's contracts in a different way.

    New lineup on Disney+ looks good. We should at least be at Netflix levels even with pandemic effects.

    To those who argue it's in her contract. How many pandemics have you guys lived through? Scarlett will have made at least $30.0M on Black Widow. Disney's decision to delay its theatrical release helped her a little bit at the Box Office. The contract was negotiated without a pandemic in mind. PLUS, most haven't even seen the contract. Disney believes they're in the right. I'd suspend judgment until you learn more. Frankly, I think Scarlett's decision is disgraceful given how much she's probably made across 9 movies.

    I think people outside India do not know that Disney also own Hotstar in India, the largest streaming service and it’s subscriptions are increasing every month… the potential it has to grow there is immense….

    I think operating cruise ships in a pandemic is not very profitable. Parks overseas too.Streaming will be profitable in 2024 as they say? I doubt it with that content.

    We are going to have a repeat of Boeing. Everyone thinks this will have bad earnings and then pull back.

    This is oversold and has been trading flat. Anyone thinking this pulls back more is in for a rude awakening.

    The Zacks $201.79 PT is too conservative.

    What's more entertaining than "Black Widow" and "Cruella?" Disney getting sued by Johansson and Stone.

    Greed. I can appreciate that Scarlett wanted more, but she's made $20.0 million to date on Black Widow, she earned some form of royalty on Disney+ sales, and let's face it, the movie was never going to make a billion dollars at the box office right now. Lastly, she wasn't very good in it! Florence deserves $20.0 million.

    Forced to vaccinations? How can anyone do business with a company that does not respect individual freedom and the Constitution? I urge all citizens to just say no to Disney.

    Europe and Asia will show the US and the US business what it means to have governments who do not care about business when there is percentage of health risk.

    Yes in the US streaming and parks run fine.Business is incredible. But that is not enough for that valuation.
