After rumors surfaced that Disney “compelled” ABC to give Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. this, their 5th season, we were all pretty sure it would be the original MCU tie-in show’s last. All year long, people involved in the show kept saying they wrote this season as if it would be the last. Expectations were minimum. Thank goodness the fans showed up.
Announced just a minutes ago, AoS will be returning for a 6th season! Next year will bring back Coulson (we hope) and his crew for another 13 episodes. Thirteen is a far cry from the massive 24 episode run they had just a season ago, but at this point, we’ll take what we can get. Will we get more tie-ins to the half-genocided larger MCU? Will events of Avengers 4 play a role? Contact us and share your thoughts! Also, don’t forget to tune into the podcast we’ll be releasing later today to discuss it – we may bring up your question or opinion!

In a move that comes straight out of left field, Fox made an announcement tonight that multiple movies are changing dates, including both X-Men: Dark Phoenix and New Mutants (again!) The studio that may soon be falling into Disney’s hands has pushed up Bohemian Rhapsody (starring Rami Malek,) to November 2 of this year from it’s original, Christmas Day slot.
That was the original release date for Dark Phoenix, but it has now been moved back to February 14th of next year. If February of next year sounds familiar, that’s because New Mutants, which was initially scheduled to open next month, had been pushed to February 22nd, 2019. With Dark Phoenix taking over February, the Josh Boone directed hero/horror movie is sliding all the way back to August 2nd!
All of this, plus their other moves would give the appearance that Disney is far more involved with what’s going on at Fox than we might think. Rhapsody, a smaller scale, more Oscar worthy pic, clears the way for Disney’s The Nutcracker And The Four Realms to clean up on the opening weekend in November. Fox made a handful of other moves to it’s non-superhero slate as well.
There’s a large speculation that New Mutants may end up on Disney’s new streaming service, but considering they’re eschewing the darker material, Hulu would be the place it would likely land if it falls out of theatrical release. That would be a shame for such a daring concept. What do you think about all the moves? Let us know!
As you can hear on our latest podcast, dropped this morning (go to the podcast tab on this site,) your Trusty Sidekicks told you that an announcement was likely coming this morning and this morning it did come! In a massive buyout, Disney and Fox have agreed on a $52 billion deal for the Mouse House to take over the reigns on the entire film rights of 21st Century.
If you’re somehow unfamiliar to what this means (and honestly, if you’re reading this, I’m sure you are not,) Fox has had control over a number of Marvel comic book characters for a very long time, with the most obvious being the X-Men and Fantastic Four. With Disney’s acquisition, the potential to either spin currently successful and/or promising franchises like Deadpool, Legion, The New Mutants and The Gifted, into the current Marvel universe somehow, or to retool them along with other franchises that could possibly benefit from the awfully successful Marvel Studios touch.
There are some potential hold-ups in this deal as it would be the largest movie studio merger of all-time, and a reduction from what was already only 6 major studios. Large media mergers are always a subject of FCC approval, and considering the current ruling delivered today on net neutrality, there’s no telling how something like this might go. We also discuss some additional difficulties that Marvel itself may have regarding some of it’s new properties, on our latest episode (#74,) however, just like you, we’re already imagining who will end up fighting who when the eventual Secret Wars crossover happens! Are you excited about the merger? Tell us what you think!
