    On a side note about corporate politics, I hope people who support Mulan and Disney despite this issue also support Sony for taking out Spider-Man in the MCU.

    What does one have to do with the other or how are they similar situations?

    The common thread is of course Disney. The past few days have basically affirmed my long standing view that MCU fans are extremely rabid. Buy Sony so that Spider-Man can return to the MCU and basically enlarge another competitor that is historically the largest any studio has been? Wishing Sony crumbles as a studio? Sony is absolutely in the right about the Spider-Man issue because it is their only solid money making franchise, whatever your feelings about the prospect about its future critical reception may be. Yet I see people (not all) support Disney for making the right financial and PR decision by keeping quiet about this for now. Gross and **** Disney.

    Disney probably is making the right financial and PR decision by staying quiet about this, and I don’t like Sony going back to running Spider-Man by itself because Sony has earned zero benefit of the doubt about its ability to run its own properties competently.

    Much like Fox, Sony has lost the ability to properly run it's own franchises. I can't think of a Sony property offhand they haven't screwed up in the past few years.

    Venom was a bumbling hot mess that felt like it belonged in the 1990s, and beneath the MCU. I wouldn't blame Feige for not wanting it incorporated.

    Even with Venom's success it could have been so much better.

    Jumanji 2 was a surprising hit and the sequel looks like it could do the same.

    According to John Campea, the footage they showed at D23, looked beautiful. Really praised the cinematography.

    You're right. It's odd how people's response to this situation isn't this conglomerate playing unfair to a studio who was just trying to do the same thing, it was "****ing Sony always ****ing this up."

    It kind of goes to show how people respond to these brands. Because one is so beloved right now, even an unfair negotiating tactic is ignored in favor is bashing a studio whose movies we don't like.

    And I'm sick of people praising Disney as this progressive studio. Stop aligning personal politics with a ****ing conglomerate that owns over 40% of the market place. They don't give a flying **** about any of it.

    Yeah I said it before but some people seem truly obsessed with this. Wishing for a studio to fail / get bought is petty and awful. Sony is a much smaller studio than Disney and of course they are not going to want to give up control of their flagship franchise. And I don't think that Disney was gonna stop at 25% or 30%. They want the character back.

    Going back to the main topic. Unlike the Gunn firing, which is pretty harmless and something which is common among artists this Mulan **** show is actually relevant politically not just in Hong Kong but in other countries as well. People's live are at stake, not just money.

    As a film nerd, the world revolves around me and what I want in my movies and characters so that is irrelevant.

    I don't have any kind of idyllic view of Disney, I just don't think Sony knows how to handle **** on its own.

    Also this. I don't believe in judging movies by outside factors.
