Disney Has Plans For X-Men Characters For Marvel Shows

But when Disney announced the launch of its own streaming service, it effectively severed ties with Netflix.

A recent report implied that Disney was in talks to reacquire the cable rights for the original trilogy and the prequels.

Disney exec Ricky Strauss is in charge of the new streaming service, as president of content and marketing.

This was the biggie and while things may start out somewhat slow, Disney is going to have a massive library on its streaming service over time.

James Anderson's golf swing goes horribly wrong
India will now look to bounce back when they take on England in the second match of the series, beginning August 9 at the Lord's. Anderson recoils from the impact, whilst Broad can be heard to exclaim, "Oh no!"

What exactly all this means for the Marvel movies now on Netflix is a little unclear. Every MCU movie now hosted on Netflix will be leaving the site, and the next film in the franchise, next March's Captain Marvel, will be the first to head directly to Disney's site instead of Netflix. And if that's the case, then Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther will also be on the streaming service through all of 2019 as well.

During the company's quarterly earnings call this afternoon, Iger acknowledged that the Fox acquisition gives the company more Marvel Comics related opportunities for its streaming service which is expected to launch by the end of 2019, in addition to the live-action original Marvel series that is already in development.

The report also details other Disney movies destined to debut on the service, including the $45 million Timmy Failure being directed by Spotlight's Tom McCarthy, remakes of Lady and the Tramp and The Sword in the Stone, Noelle starring Anna Kendrick, the sled dog movie Togo, a remake of Three Men and a Baby, The Paper Magician and Stargirl.

Overall, Disney posted earnings of $1.87 per share excluding certain items, an increase from a year earlier, but below Wall Street's average forecast of $1.95, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Barcelona will be hard pressed to convince United to part with Pogba with the English transfer window set to shut on Thursday. It is understood that the hard relationship between Mourinho and his 25-year-old star has become tense once again, however.

Due to prior licensing deals, Disney's initial offerings will pale in comparison to those of Netflix.

Net attributable income rose 23% to $2.92bn (£2.25bn), or $1.95 per share, in the period ended 30 June, from $2.37bn (£1.83bn), or $1.51 per share, a year ago.

Total revenue rose 7% to $15.23bn, driven by box office successes as well as theme parks and resort visits, but missed analysts' $15.34bn forecast.
