Aaron Adams & Jim Hill start off Episode 32 by talking about how the limited series that Marvel Studios is producing for Disney’s soon-to-launch subscription streaming service will be different from “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” & “Agent Carter.” Jim then does a deep dive on Disney’s August 2009 acquisition of Marvel Entertainment and reveals that – given the weird way that Hollywood does its books – it’s entirely possible that the Mouse has yet to recover the full $4.2 billion that it spent to buy that comic book company.


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

How “Avengers: Endgame” Joe Russo thinks that it’s entirely appropriate that Stan Lee’s very last cameo in a Marvel Cinematic Universe film appears in the very last installment of the Infinity Saga

The very-cool Peggy Carter / Steve Rogers-related story that Marvel Animation has chosen to be the kick-off episode for Disney +’s “What If” series

How Marvel Television helped ABC save a few bucks by shooting Season 6 & Season 7 of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” back-to-back.

How The Walt Disney Company – especially when it comes to high profile blockbusters like “The Last Jedi” & “Infinity War” – can strong-arm exhibitors into forking over 65% of every dollar that people spend on tickets for those films

How Marvel Studios spent more money on the global promotion of “Captain Marvel” (i.e., an estimated $160 million) than it spent on actually producing this Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck movie (i.e., a reported $152 million).
