  1. ^Netflix vs. Disney escalating:ABC exec Chinning Dungey’s move to the streamer signals a new front in Reed Hastings’ battle with Bob Iger in the run-up to the Mouse House digital competitor’s debut next year, Paul Bond reports:

    + Spending projection: Analyst Todd Juenger of Bernstein figures that Netflix will spend $11.9 billion in 2019 on content and $14.5 billion in 2020. But the 22 percent year-over-year increase will be easily manageable because Netflix adds more than 25 million subscribers worldwide each year, for an additional $3 billion in revenue annually.

+ Imitation is flattering: Following Disney’s live-action Jungle Book, which grossed $966 million globally in 2016, Netflix picked up Mowgli, Andy Serkis’ film based on the same Rudyard Kipling story that was made at Warner Bros, for example. Netflix also invested in developing comic book universes to lessen reliance on Marvel by paying $30 million to $50 million for Mark Millar’s Millarworld while also nabbing rights to Rob Liefeld’s Extreme Universe.

+ Uphill battle: Netflix will grow from its current 132.9 million U.S. users (as opposed to subscribers) to 169.3 million in 2022, per an eMarketer forecast. Amazon Video at No. 2 also has been at it for a lot longer than Disney, and it lags Netflix by about 53.5 million users stateside

However, notes eMarketer analyst Paul Verna, “If any company is in the position to catch up to Netflix, it’s Disney, not Amazon.”

Transmedia guru Jeff Gomez shared so many insider nuggets as our guest this past week. He even dropped the rumored FIRST Marvel/FOX film post merger. You won’t believe who’s in it and who will be playing the role of a certain Canadian-clawed mutant.

Spider-Man/Wolverine Crossover In The Works?

Will Hugh Jackman Reprise the role of Wolverine in a crossover with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man?

“The muscles were flexing to take these third and fourth tier characters and lift them,” Gomez revealed when asked how the Disney/Fox merger would impact the MCU going forward. “It’s going to be a little easier with X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool.”

But then Gomez dropped the “inside baseball” bombshell of exactly what the bigwigs at Disney were planning to unveil

“The big win is a Hugh Jackman Wolverine with Spider-Man. Why? Spider-Man is the number one superhero merchandise generator ever. So combining those two characters…and Hugh is willing to do it.”

There’s been some debate on Secrets of the Sire as to whether Hugh Jackman needs to hang up the claws. Co-hosts Michael Dolce and Hassan Godwin have debated back and forth whether this merger, combined with he storyline in Logan, is the perfect opportunity to cast someone new in Jackman’s iconic role. But Gomez revealed the thought of Jackman reprising the role is just too good an opportunity to pass up at this point.

“[Wolverine] will have to evolve into another actor at some point, but there are a number of opportunities in the [Marvel] cinematic universe [waiting] to happen.”

Spider-Man/Wolverine Crossover

Hugh Jackman’s turn as Wolverine may not be over

About This Clip: Disney/Fox Merger
Jeff Gomez gives insight into a potential Disney/Fox merger saying it’ll be “huge for fanboys” and how that might dictate Marvel’s plans for the MCU in the coming years. With a bunch of movies getting new release dates including Deadpool and The New Mutants, what does this say about the direction Fox is heading?

“In the twilight of Fox they are doing interesting things with the franchises.”
