Looking back at Bob Iger’s Disney

Looking back at Bob Iger’s Disney

The man behind Disney’s meteoric rise over the past decade stepped down from the throne at the end of February. Disney was massive long before, but in his 15 years at the helm, former CEO Bob Iger, 69, brought the House of Mouse to astronomical heights. He was behind key acquisitions that helped Disney to increase its annual revenue by over 200% since he took over in 2005. Few industry leaders have made quite a mark as Iger, and his successor (conveniently, another Bob), Disney parks chairman Bob Chapek, has big shoes to fill. Read on as we outline his success, what brought him there, and what lies ahead for the world’s most unstoppable movie studio.

Bob Chapek named Disney CEO: The 7th in 97 years

Disney just announced their 7th new CEO in the past 97 years. Bob Chapek is the newest CEO at Disney, while former CEO Bob Iger moves to executive chairman. Robert A. Iger was the CEO of Disney from 2005 until 2020, and before Iger was Michael Eisner, who ruled Disney from 1984 to 2005 - at which point he was effectively ousted by a shareholder uprising led by Roy E. Disney.

Deadpool 2 release date update with Han Solo, Gambit, New Mutants

Deadpool 2 release date update with Han Solo, Gambit, New Mutants

A selection of superhero movies previously set for different dates will now be set in their own individual weekends. This includes Deadpool 2, The New Mutants, and Gambit too. The first film to get a bit of a change is Deadpool 2, which will now be set just one week before the opening of Disney/Lucasfilm's Han Solo film: "Solo: A Star Wars Story." That means the tail end of May 2018 is going to be the best couple of weekends of superhero/sci-fi action movies of the year - if not the entire history of the world.

Deadpool 2 Trailer: Bob Ross, Cable, Domino

Deadpool 2 is the second Deadpool movie and it has a trailer that makes Deadpool look like Bob Ross! It's so magnimoniously absurd, you won't even be able to handle it. This next film doesn't actually have a full title yet, and can be found on IMDB with the name "Untitled Deadpool Sequel." Negasonic Teenage Warhead is in this one, too!

You’re going to Mars, I went to NASA

You’re going to Mars, I went to NASA

I woke up at 5:30 AM after a string of nightmares about being left alone on a dusty red planet. Like a fool I'd eaten a gigantic piece of chocolate cake the night before while watching a set of tiny teaser clips of "The Martian" to mentally prepare for the next day. "It's OK," I told myself. "Stay calm. You're in Houston. You're on East NASA Parkway in the same hotel you'd checked in to the day before. Today you're going to go on a brief ride in a Mars rover and talk to an astronaut."

Mega Man movie in the works from Fox and Capcom

It looks like The Blue Bomber himself is gearing up to hit the big screen. It's been revealed that game developer Capcom is working with 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment to develop a Mega Man movie. While gamers should long know by now to be cautiously optimistic at best when it comes to video games being adapted into movies, the fact that the owners of the Mega Man franchise are involved could be interpreted as a positive sign.

ZAGG partnership brings Fantastic 4 to Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6

The ZAGG team have announced that they're teaming up with 20th Century Fox for a super delivery of super-protective cases for the next superhero movie. The film is the Fantastic Four, and the product is a rather unique piece of hardware.

X-Men Days of Future Past: Rogue Cut detailed

X-Men Days of Future Past: Rogue Cut detailed

Through Periscope, of all places, X-Men Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer announced the "Rogue Cut" of his most recent sci-fi film. This version of the movie will include a relatively major sub-plot that includes Rogue, one of the main characters in the first X-Men film. Anna Paquin will be featured in scenes that were filmed and produced to final-feature quality and (originally) cut at the last minute - or due to it being a bit of extraneous information, depending on who you believe, really.
