The year is 2025. Disney own everything. You eat your cereal in a Mickey Mouse bowl, with a Star Wars spoon, drinking from your Avengers mug as you prepare yourself to board the Spider-Train to get to your office.

Silently, you weep.
This sounds amazing!
You say this now. There are no theme parks but Disney and there is mandatory attendance at least once a year, or you end up on the business end of the Malificent Murder Squad.

Now that I’ve seen her as the voice of Spider-Gwen...Dove Cameron should definitely play the live action Gwen Stacy

Yeah, agreed on that one - she's a really good fit. A lot of the voice cast look like excellent fits

They are saying she might show up on AoS. (The character in any case).

The more I think about the potential Disney/Fox deal the more I'm excited less about the movies and more about the X-Men not being treated like the hated stepchildren.

Here's my question of the day, if after I declare interest in a job, a generated reply says they will contact me shortly, how long is this "shortly"?

Depends entirely on the job. Our company’s vacancy system keeps a vacancy active for two weeks to gather applications before it closes down. It could be similar, but then again, we’re free to contact anyone at any point during the life-span of the listing. I’d assume it’s when they have enough applicants to sift through and invite to interview, however.

Wonder Woman is listed as one of the Top 10 Films of the year by the AFI, and I get it. But it was half the movie Logan was. And let's not forget Logan featured a pretty "Strong, independent woman" of it's own.

Sadly, I don't think it will, it got shut out from the Golden Globes (so did Wonder Woman though.)

Here's what you can do for Net Neutrality - takes less than a minute.
1. Go to www.gofccyourself.com
(the shortcut John Oliver made to the hard-to-find FCC comment page)
2. Next to the 17-108 link (Restoring Internet Freedom), click on "express"
3. Be sure to hit "ENTER" after you put in your name & info so it registers. (use your laptop instead of your phone)
4. In the comment section write, "I strongly support net neutrality backed by Title 2 oversight of ISPs."
5. Click to submit, done. - Make sure you hit submit at the end!

The problem with those is that enforcement efforts to block bad actors, sometimes pick up those “fill in the blank” responses as negative too...

WSJ is reporting Disney has made a renewed offer to buy Fox's media assets and an announcement could come as early as next week. But it also says Comcast is making an offer and might get it instead.
Comcast has announced it is dropping its bid. It is all Disney's for the taking

Unfortunately though the Russian spambots, which the FCC refuses to investigate, have thrown the comments system all out of whack this time around. "Internet Freedom" is going to pass this time because the GOP are a bunch of spineless cretins, and it will be up to the courts to do their job and protect the people.

As a nerd I have been a part of many fandoms in my time and the Walking Dead fandom is the absolute worst at spoilers (the show, not the comics). They make GoT fans look like saints. I don't like to watch shows weekly but I basically have to for Walking Dead because the fans throw spoilers right in your face immediately on social media.

My thoughts exactly. It'll just feel so cool seeing Marvel acknowledge the X-Men instead of... this...

Alabama voted for Doug Jones.

This is a bigger shocker than a Trump presidency to be honest.
