    Marvel and Disney are once again courting controversy by casting a female actress to take on the typically male “Fantastic Four” role of the Silver Surfer in the upcoming reboot. Actress Julia Garner has been picked to play a female version of the iconic comic book character and Herald of Galactus, Deadline magazine reported. Sources told the outlet that the Emmy-winning “Ozark” star will play the Shalla-Bal version of the Silver Surfer from the comics. Bounding Into Comics reported that Marvel Studios dived deep into the comic book lore to find justification to not use the Norrin-Radd version of the...

    Aug 14 (Reuters) - Hollywood's favorite parlor game of the week: What will Bob Iger do next? From Culver City to New York City, the U.S. media and entertainment industry's powerbrokers are spinning scenarios about the future and the possible breakup of the industry's most powerful conglomerate. Walt Disney (DIS.N) chief executive Iger, who returned to the company in November for a second stint, triggered the vigorous industry chatter in mid-July when he suggested during a CNBC interview that the company's television businesses, including its stations and cable channels, "may not be core to Disney."
  • Disney Already Knows Who to Blame for Its Next Massive Flop

    The live-action, woke-AF remake of “Snow White” looks like it’s going to be Disney’s next big-budget flop — and it also looks like the struggling studio already has someone primed to take the fall. To give you an idea of how insane Hollywood budgets are, even a blockbuster success can lose money. The new Indiana Jones drove this lifelong, diehard fan away — and I wasn’t the only one. “Indiana Jones and the Diaper of Dysentery” needed to earn nearly ONE BILLION DOLLARS before showing a profit (as the Critical Drinker explained last month) but after seven weeks is still...

    Disney is proud to push PRIDE.Pride is the code word for the alphabet people. It used to be reserved for gays and lesbians but now has become the all-purpose umbrella ideology for everything from doggy fetishists to people pretending to be infants. Sex workers have their own symbol on the new pride flag, and every paraphilia imaginable is being celebrated.The argument for gay marriage that finally worked, changing the attitude of the whole country, was that by opening up marriage to gays and lesbians they would become integrated into the larger society and adopt the norms and traditions of heterosexuals....

    In Disney’s latest effort to smuggle transgender ideology into its entertainment for kids, the new animated Disney+ series Baymax features a transgender “man” who menstruates and gives advice on which maxi pad to buy — “the one with wings.” Baymax, which began streaming Wednesday on Disney+, follows the adventures of the balloon-like robot from the 2014 movie Big Hero 6 who is on a mission to serve as good samaritan to the residents of the fictional city San Fransokyo. The transgender character appears in episode three titled “Sofia,” in which Baymax assists a 12-year-old girl who experiences her first period....

    Disney parks are axing gendered language such as "boys and girls" in their park greetings to promote gender inclusivity, according to video of a company executive. "We’ve provided training for all of our cast members in relationship to that. So now they know it's ‘Hello, everyone,’ or ‘Hello, friends,'" Disney's diversity and inclusion manager Vivian Ware was heard saying in a video conference call recorded by City Journal's Christopher Rufo. Parkgoers will no longer hear "ladies and gentlemen" and "boys and girls" in park greetings, according to the video.

    Disney has been facing both internal and external backlash for CEO Bob Chapek not doing enough to fight Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill, which blocks educators from discussing gender identity or sexual orientation with students in third grade or below. On Monday, Chapek told employees about the company’s plan for the task force. “We know the moment requires urgency – and words are not enough,” said Chapek, according to a recording of his remarks obtained by Reuters. “So we are taking some actions right now.” According to Reuters, “The company said the task force will enlist the help of...

On Friday, reports emerged that Disney was reinstating a kissing scene between two women in the upcoming 'Toy Story' spinoff 'Lightyear' - after Pixar employees accused the parent company of cutting gay characters from films.

    One of the dumbest stories currently happening in the country involves the Parental Rights in Education bill, which recently made it through the Florida legislature. It is now headed to Gov. Ron DeSantis’ desk, and he’s promised to sign it into law.So, why is a bill that simply provides more power to parents and more accountability to educators being so maligned? The answer is that it dares to disallow teaching sexual and gender ideology to Pre-K through third-grade students (that translates to ages 3-7). I know — the absolute horror of small children not being exposed to such things without...

    Going back to the late 1920s, every single child raised in America has intersected in some way with products from Walt Disney: we've watched the movies and TV shows, sung the songs, worn the clothes, and visited the theme parks. Through it all, Disney stood for wholesome family entertainment. That is no longer the case. Disney is a hardcore leftists corporation that is pushing its politics on children and training its employees to be white-hating racists or self-loathing white people. It's time to give up Disney. During Walt Disney's tenure, his company also generated propaganda. Behind all the wonderful entertainment,...

    Goya Foods CEO Bob Unanue’s support for President Trump can only mean he’s a racial sell-out who poisons his own people, according to a bigoted and small-minded columnist at NBC News. The only old, white, male privilege I’m aware of is that we old, white males can still vote for whomever we wish without having our identities questioned. Whether we vote Democrat or Republican, Green or Libertarian, everyone shrugs… Old, white guys being old, white guys just isn’t news. Everyone, else, though… Wow. Times are tough. If blacks don’t vote Democrat, they “ain’t black,” as one infamous, white racist recently...

    Star of the upcoming film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Daisy Ridley asserted that "everyone has an issue with Trump — every sane person anyway." Speaking with The Guardian in an interview published over the weekend, the English actress took aim at both President Trump and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. When asked if she finds it difficult to speak out about politics given that the Star Wars franchise is owned by family-friendly Disney, Ridley said, "No. I don’t feel I have to edit what I say — the things that make me angry are the things that make...
