1. Disney+/Hulu/ESPN+ Bundle to Cost $12.99/Month — But There's a Catch | TV Line

When Disney+ launches on Tuesday, Nov. 12 (for U.S. subscribers; and then rolled out to the rest of the world over two years), the new service’s ad-free content will cost $6.99/month (or $69.99/year).
But Disney CEO Bob Iger announced during a Tuesday earnings call that a bundle that combines the well-stocked Disney+ with Hulu’s ad-supported basic service ($5.99/month) as well as ESPN+ ($4.99/month) will total just $12.99/month.
The “catch” is that, as noted above, you get “Hulu with ads,” and there are no plans to offer a bundle with the ad-free version of Hulu.

2. Disney Specifically Names DARK PHOENIX As Being A Huge Factor In Its Quarterly Losses | Comic Book Movie

Disney posted a $170 million operating loss in its fiscal third quarter, and you'd best believe that a large chunk of that is thanks to the Simon Kinberg-helmed release. This wasn't the only disappointing Fox movie to have come out since the merger, of course, as both The Kid Who Would Be King and Stuber underperformed at the box office in a huge way.

7. DEADPOOL 2 Director Says It's Possible for a Sequel to Find "Happy Ground" Between R and PG-13 Rating | GeekTyrant

“It's rated R so that's not necessarily the [MCU] brand but he doesn't necessarily need to be R and [Disney] don't necessarily need to only make PG-13 movies. I think we'll find a happy ground.” - Deadpool 2 director David Leitch

9. Marvel's NIGHTHAWK Writer Says Cult Series Ended Before It Really Began | Newsarama

"I got the call that the series was cancelled the week the first issue came out (the first issue came out on a Wednesday, and the series was cancelled on the Monday before it debuted)," Walker wrote on his website. "At the time, I had four issues of Nighthawk written, and was working on the fifth. Knowing the book was ending with issue #6, I was able to go back and rewrite #4, and then rework what had been planned for #5 and #6, giving the series a more complete ending (while having to dump a ton of story)."

10. Avengers: Endgame Writer Co-Signs Peggy Carter Funeral Theory | Cinemablend

I love the idea of having two Steve Rogers in the timeline. One who lived a long life with Peggy and is in the background of that funeral scene watching his young self carry his wife’s coffin. Not just for the time travel mumbo-jumbo of it but for the weird personal pain and satisfaction that would be happening between two Steve Rogers there. I kind of love it.
