Replied to others (Kinja makes it hard to see them) - But if you look at the timestamps, a lot of the folks blaming Sony were from right after the article was placed. BEFORE they updated the article with the actual details. I read it. They updated and added more after I read the original version of the article.
Nah. Not dumb at all. That is crazy that Marvel wanted to go from 5% to 50%.
or...maybe it is common because they updated the article after multiple folks commented. Myself included. They, for some unknown reason, didn’t include their usual [Update] tag.
They updated the article after I commented. When I did it was only the first two paragraphs with no details on the deal.
100% we are the losers here.
Three ways immediately come to mind:
Yup.That is what I was alluding to. Except in my version Sony started the fight instead of Marvel starting it.
I imagine some short sighted Sony executive tried to strongarm Marvel into a greater percentage of profits going Sony’s way. Marvel didn’t budge. Maybe even went the opposite way pointing to Spider-Man profits vs Venom.
Well, there goes any hopes of Spider-Man joining any future MCU films.
To be fair, Fleming returns to Jamaica a lot in the books. So it could be any of them.
I am 100% in the “Bond is a codename” camp. Skyfall screwed with that a bit (and added confusion by throwing in the old cars). but it can still be explained away by some clever backtracking.
I’d be cool if they use this to completely scrap the past. Install a new Bond, while honouring everything that has come before them. Do so by alluding to the last of Craig leads directly into Connery.
Maaaaaaaaaaaaaannn...If they try to pull off some full circle stuff and have this end at Dr. No I will both love it and hate them.
My thinking: If it was not important enough to be included in the original theatrical release, there will not be any major bombshells or essential plot elements in this version.
It is still better than the old method of releasing Extended Editions on DVD a few months after it first hits home video. I hate those so much.
Coming from a family that took 19 hour car trips 2x a year for years, I would have not only adored the extra legroom, but the ability to do something, anything with the others in the car that did not involve a hassle for the kids in the middle seat. I don’t know how many times we tried to play travel games that ended…
I genuinely love the facing seats. Throw a small card table in there and it would make long family trips far more enjoyable.
Yup. I completely stopped bothering looking for anything Disney owned for 4K/Bluray purchases on Amazon. I just go to Walmart or BestBuy and order online from them.
True. This is one reason why I seriously doubt their long haul truck will ever take off. I can’t imagine a single freight line would accept a vehicle that if they ever have to repair it, may be down for months at a time for incredibly simple parts.
I am genuinely surprised that Tesla hasn’t tried to gig Economy their car service. Think roving AAA for Tesla.
