Bob Iger, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company, has confirmed that some upcoming Disney Plus content will be exhibited during the company’s investor day this April.
This news comes to us from a live investor call which Bob Iger and the Mouse House held earlier today, in which a number of big topics were discussed. This included when company investors will get to lay their eyes for the first time on some of the specific digital content they are actually investing in for the much-anticipated Disney Plus streaming service, which is expected to launch later this year.
In the last year, Bob Iger has been on a mission to accuire as much recognizable properties as possible in order to fill out the upcoming streaming service. This includes buying out a competing major sutio in 21st Century Fox (that deal is expected to officially close by the end of summer this year). Additionally, the Mouse House recently made the purchase of National Geographic.
Bob Iger and company have already confirmed that Disney Plus will feature previously owned Disney content from in-house production companies such as LucasFilm and Marvel Studios.
Disney recently announced Captain Marvel as the first film that is expected to drop exclusively to Disney Plus following its theatrical release next month.
Set in the 1990s, Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom.
Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, Clark Gregg and Jude Law.
The film is slated to hit theaters on March 8, 2019.
