Out ahead of “Captain Marvel” ‘s opening weekend, Jim Hill & Aaron Adams talk about how Rotten Tomatoes dealt with the online trolls who were trying to artificially drive down the audience score for this Marvel Cinematic Universe film. They then take about how Disney’s attempt to take advantage of certain tax laws is impacting what’s been going on down on the construction site for Disney California Adventure’s new Spider-Man ride.


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

How a court’s ruling in the 1950s in regards to how Captain Marvel infringed on Superman’s copyright impacted Marvel Comics’ ability to launch a character with a similar name in the 1960s

What it was actually like to be aboard the Disney Magic in October of 2017 for DCL’s inaugural “Marvel Day at Sea”

How the Dole Food Company & Disney have teamed up to promote the release of “Captain Marvel” in a very unlikely spot: The produce section of your local grocery store

How WDI’s operational concerns with that living-character-initiative version of WALL-E that they build back in 2009 foreshadowed many of the problems that Disney Parks & Resorts is now facing with all of the droids that were supposed to wander the streets of Black Spire Outpost

What Aaron’s grandfather’s house has in common with “Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid” at WDW’s Magic Kingdom AND DCA’s Spider-Man shooter attraction (which just finished its site prep phase)
