This is good for the Fantastic Four (and Dr. Doom and Silver Surfer) and the prospect of getting the original Star Wars movies in their theatrical editions, and bad for... everything else. One company shouldn't be in charge of this much of our culture. It's bad bad bad bad bad bad bad.

I mean, I like the Silver Surfer, but this isn't god-dang worth it, guys!

It's a good thing about DreamWorks. had this happened a couple of years ago, they would have been swallowed up. Going from Amblin, to Paramount, to Fox, and fortunately in 2016, now to Universal. DW has produced some great stuff, but they seem to be the orphan that keeps getting passed around form studio to studio. I just wonder whats going to happen to Blue Sky (foxs animation studio). Disney already has 2 animation studios, do they need/want a 3rd? Or are we just going to keep getting endless Ice Age sequels :roll: TBH I like most of Blue Sky's stand alone films. Robots was fun, as was Horton & Epic. The Ice Age franchise however should have gone the straight to DVD route about 3 films ago.
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

Remember when Disney bought the Muppets and it was like, "AWESOME! We'll get a bunch of Muppet stuff now!" and then the two movies didn't do great at the box office and the show got canceled and now Muppets is basically dead?

Do you guys really think DISNEY is gonna sink money into Alien, Predator, Die Hard, Planet of the Apes, and all those ancillary X-Men movies? We'll be lucky if Deadpool keeps going, but other than that, it'll just be X-Men in MCU movies. Say goodbye to any of those smaller characters. Those of you who've gotten sick of just seeing Storm, Wolverine, Cyclops, Jean, and a handful of others, do you think DISNEY is gonna pull deep cuts?

And what about Fox Searchlight? You think that's still gonna be a thing? Disney doesn't care about small little indies, and now there's one less thing for a guy like Guillermo Del Toro to sell a movie like The Shape of Water to.

If you've gotten blockbuster fatigue, it's only gonna get worse. Like Ben just said, Disney only put out 16 movies last year to the tune of $3 billion domestic. WB put out 35. Over twice as many movies, for a third the money. You think Disney is gonna pump out 40 movies? No. They'll keep to a couple of Fox's biggest most hugest big giant huge money makers and everything else will be collecting dust forever.

What's Disney gonna do with a guy like Seth Macfarlane? Or any of the Fox TV shows you might watch? Think beyond a couple of the major franchises, because this includes everything and none of it's gonna be the same.

All for the sake of trying to make the Disney streaming service competitive with Netflix. We're rapidly approaching a time where all entertainment will be owned by Disney, Netflix, WB, Universal (maybe), and then maybe like a couple small little companies with their little niches like Hulu or IFC. That's not a good thing.

Yay! We're gonna get Wolverine in costume in an Avengers movie!!

Huzzah! Let's cheer for the death of dozens of other characters, franchises, styles of movie, filmmakers' dreams, and creativity, because at least we get to see some yellow spandex.

Well said Ben and jelly!

Honestly, one of the first things I thought of a week ago was "What about those two films Guillermo del Toro has in development at Fox Searchlight?"

Disney does great work and has the talents of a lot of amazing people, but I can't help but be frightened of their scale and dominance. They are becoming a kaiju: basically innocent, but destructive due to their size alone.
