Disney CEO Bob Iger shared some pricing details on their upcoming direct-to-consumer streaming service during the company’s earnings call today.
Disney’s direct-to-consumer streaming service is expected to launch late next year and will feature content from Marvel, Lucasfilm, and Pixar. While the pricing for the service is currently unknown, it has been said it will cost less than Netflix due to the amount of content. Iger revealed during the conference call with investors that Disney’s newly launched ESPN Plus and their co-owned Hulu could be apart of a package:
“If a consumer wants all three, ultimately we see an opportunity to bundle them from a pricing perspective. The price will reflect a lower volume of product, as will the cost of producing and owning that content”
Disney’s streaming service will feature Jon Favreau’s live-action Star Wars series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, a new Marvel original series, a live-action Lady and the Tramp film, TV adaptations of Monsters Inc. and High School Musical, and more.

20 Marvel Movies That Could Be Made After Disney’s Fox Acquisition
So the impossible has happened: Fox and Disney have recently agreed to a major deal, one which means that — aside from a few limitations with the Hulk and Spider-Man, who have their rights wrapped up with Universal Pictures and Sony Pictures — every major Marvel property will soon be able to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the plans for the remainder of Phase 3 likely won’t change that much, barring possible post-credits scenes showing major cameos being added on short notice, this development certainly gives Marvel an embarrassment of riches to work with for future film adaptations.
Since Marvel Studios had previously claimed that they have an outline for the next 20 movies they’ll make without the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, or any of their associated characters, I thought it would be best to similarly go all-out and suggest 20 more for the heck of it.
Here are, in no particular order, 20 movies that Marvel should think about making with a complete MCU at their fingertips. Click Next to get started!
