Don't Worry, Disney Will Keep Deadpool For Adults

DEADPOOL 2

"We do believe there is room for the Fox properties to exist without significant Disney influence over the nature of the content, meaning that we see that there is certainly popularity amongst Marvel fans for the R-rated Deadpool films, as a for instance", he said. In addition to Deadpool, Disney is getting The Simpsons and Family Guy, which are known to be edgier and less family friendly.

During yesterday's earnings call, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced (as reported by Deadline) that Captain Marvel would be the first Marvel film exclusively available to watch on Disney+ after its initial release in theatres on March 7. "We've bought companies, we've sold companies, we've bought developers, we've closed developers", Iger said in comments grabbed by Variety.

While Iger said that Captain Marvel will be the first Disney film that the company will withhold from licensing partners, it's unclear what will happen with Marvel's biggest movie this year, Avengers: Endgame, which launches just over a month after Captain Marvel. The branding tactic is also meant to ensure that parents don't accidentally expose their children to something "R-Rate", due to a mislabelled product.

Miami Heat agree to trade Tyler Johnson to Phoenix Suns
He will make just over $20 million this season and just over $21 million next season before becoming an unrestricted free agent. Johnson, 26, is averaging 10.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game in 44 games this season, 10 of them starts.

He also revealed that all content departments and brands, including Pixar, as well as Lucasfilm and Marvel, are working on shows and films with Disney+ in mind.

This suggests that, should Disney follow through on this tease of potential R-rated pics outside of the Deadpool series, the films won't feel like standard Disney fare such as Frozen or Aladdin or The Lion King (not that anyone was really expecting a violent new take on an animated classic). "As long as we let the audiences know what's coming, we think we can manage that fine".
