Disney can handle all of those projects if they just keep buying out studios just to acquire a license they had prior.

Aren't LUCARIO's paws adorable? (MOAR adorable than all of the Eevee'z)

I have a feeling that Disney is going to start having too much to handle in the coming decade, especially with Bob Iger's retirement in 2021.

I already have serious doubts about the future of the MCU without a strong character to really drive it forward. The Kevin Feige approach has both pros and cons, and one of the cons is that a whole lot of the movies feel REALLY formulaic. If they keep pushing the same formula without Iron Man or Captain America, I'm not sure they will be able to continue to grab audiences.

Yes I know Iron Man wasn't a big character when his movie came out, but at that point the Marvel formula wasn't something that had been established. Iron Man managed to be a good movie in its own right for it's time, allowing the character to become lead material. I'm not sure they can do that again.

@Grisinblue Yeah... as a Star Wars fan, I'm also kinda worried about that. In and of themselves, the movies can still be entertaining, but it does indeed seem like there's no (clear) over-arching story line. Or at least not yet.

I was gonna mention that Shang-Chi movie, by the way, but I forgot.
One has to wonder how they're gonna do that: totally ignore the fake Mandarin story, or somehow casually refer back to it, to tie the older Marvel movies in with the next phase. Guess we'll find out next year...
Meanwhile, it has just been announced that Avengers Endgame is the highest grossing movie ever, now already surpassing 800 million euros/dollars. I guess Marvel is doing just fine...

@Tyranexx Thank you ever so much, ma'am, for inadvertently having solved this little riddle I was struggling with, and nobody wanted to help me with...

@Luna_110 Having grown up with the Star Wars books, comics and games, I can't stand anything from the new "canon". It feels like a boring bland underdeveloped snooze fest with admittedly very nice CG and special effects. I get that the old Expanded Universe has some serious misses, but they were the outliers, not the norm. The Thrawn Trilogy will forever be the true sequels for me. And I will always love the X-Wing novels, the NJO books, iJedi, True at Bakura, the Corellian Trilogy, the Han Solo Trilogy, Dark Empire, KOTOR 1+2, Shadows of the Empire, Jedi Academy books and games... Yes Crystal Star and Darksaber were lackluster to cringe. Yes there were early messes like the Marvel comics and Glove of Vader, but overall, there is no comparison.

But all that said, I wont begrudge anyone for liking the new content. But I never will.

Anyway, as for Disney, while I liked the MCU a whole bunch, I have to say that overall, I have come to hate Disney over the last few years. They've become the Comcast or EA or Verizon of Hollywood. The own too much and have too much money and power. As a result they feel like they can do whatever they want to any IP they get their grimy, dirty, untrustworthy, despicable hands on. And with the money they have, that's basically any IP they want. Disney is trying to monopolize the industry and they need to be stopped. No company should be allowed to get this big.

@Heavyarms55 Thrawn Trilogy for life, dood. And the Yuzan Vong (I know I butchered the name) arc is much more exciting than the new films have been.

The new movies remind me of how every few years a new director does their own Batman take. For example, the new Batman trilogy will have Robert Pattinson as Bruce. That batsuit better sparkle, or preorder cancelled.

@HobbitGamer I think Batman is especially bad for reboots. What will this be, the 5th time?

And yeah, Star Wars always had a thing with ridiculous and hard to spell names. lol I only remember Yuuzhan Vong because I recently finished re-reading those books. I actually love how the first half of the series is all the good guys getting their butts kicked left and right to the point that Hoth looked like a win. Something you'd never see now that Disney owns it. And when the EU killed off a main character, it was an epic blaze of glory Chewbacca dying, saving Anakin while a bloody moon fell! Doesn't get more "blaze of Glory" than that! But then in the new canon Han Solo is killed during a hug...

@HobbitGamer I usually enjoy talking about wishlists.

@Morpheel I totally forgot about the CD and didn't catch anything. XD Though to be honest, I've been pretty burned out on PoGo lately.

@Heavyarms55 oh it caught me completely off guard, only realized it was today because I got a notification from the game. And got lucky finding the first two shinies with an incense at home.

I caught five, two of which were fairly decent stat-wise. I also accrued enough candy to fully evolve three Mudkip, so I evolved two decent normies and the best shiny. I'm keeping the rest of the shinies as bartering chips. I might trade the other decent shiny to a friend actually.

I was only out for the last hour and a half though. My local PoGo group was running a competition during the event for who could catch the most shinies. The record was fifteen. O_O

@ThanosReXXX I somehow missed that you had a text riddle, but...you're welcome?

Don't forget about sup as well.

@Morpheel Nice! I keep my phone on silent as a habit from work. Was home all day (yesterday for me here in Japan) and never bothered to check my phone until I plugged it in before bed to make sure it'd be charged for the next day. Can you tell people don't call me? And I can check most other messages on my PC.

@Tyranexx oh I have terrible luck with shiny stats. All four were terrible to mediocre. I did manage to get a good regular mudkip to evolve though.

@Heavyarms55 haha I'm kinda the opposite, since I need to stay alert to messages because of work. I don't really get any calls from anyone besides my mom or brother though...

Well there's always the phone scammers, I guess.

@Morpheel That's one thing I am really glad I don't need to worry about. My weekends are mine. On rare cases they need me on a weekend, I always get plenty of notice.

I normally leave my phone on silent at work unless I'm expecting a call. Sometimes I even shift it into airplane mode to conserve battery when I'm not using it. The problem is, I sometimes forget to kick it out of airplane mode or off silent. XD We're allowed to field personal calls if we get them, but not in excess.

And yes, the spam calls are getting out of hand. That's one of the reasons why I started leaving it on silent again.

@Morpheel My best normal Mudkip was ironically one that hatched from an egg awhile back. I hadn't done anything with it though as they're extremely rare spawns around here, which is why I went a little nuts with Pinap berries. The other decent normie was one that I caught that wasn't quite as good, but still worth it IMO.

I normally don't have much luck with finding decent shinies either, but the two best ones were worth two stars under the new rating system that was pushed in a recent update. Previously, all of my shiny catches either ranged from horrible to mediocre.
