Disney has introduced that Captain Marvel, scheduled to premiere in theaters on March 8, would be the first of the corporate’s movies to not come to Netflix. Instead, someday after exiting theaters, Captain Marvel will debut on the upcoming Disney+ streaming service.
According to Deadline, Disney CFO Christine McCarthy predicts the choice to maintain Captain Marvel, and all different 2019 Disney films, off of Netflix will reduce the corporate’s working revenue for the yr by about $150 million USD. “What we’re basically trying to do here is invest in our future,” Disney CEO Bob Iger mentioned. “It’s almost the equivalent of deploying capital to build out our theme parks. This is a bet on the future of this business.”
No precise launch date has been confirmed for Disney+ as of but, however the service is scheduled to launch someday in 2019. Disney+ will turn into the brand new streaming residence for all the firm’s current films and TV sequence, in addition to the platform that hosts new content. Disney already has three new sequence scheduled for the service. All three might be stay motion, with one starring Tom Hiddleston reprising his MCU position of Loki, one other focusing on Scarlet Witch and Vision, and the third appearing as a prequel to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story that stars Diego Luna reprising his position as Cassian Andor.
Captain Marvel is much from the one Disney film scheduled for 2019, nor will it in all probability be the most important. After Captain Marvel, Disney sees the debut of Toy Story 4, The Lion King, Avengers: Endgame, and some different movies. Avengers: Endgame will in all probability be the most important superhero movie of the last decade, which concludes the overarching Infinity Stones-focused arc that started in 2008’s Iron Man. Avengers: Endgame is scheduled to premiere April 26.
