It has run "Who Framed Roger Rabbit", which has the squeaky-clean, happy-go-lucky company mascot Mickey Mouse appearing in it, along with not only cussing, but this...
...and, yes, HER!!!
Now, THAT'S (family) Entertainment!!
Like I said, if they WANT to do it, they're doing it.
It's not about WANT, Herald. It's about NEED. The majority of Disney Channel content these days was created especially for the channel. It has no NEED to show Iron Man. And as long as it has the ability to pull another Hanna Montana or Phineas and Herb out of its hat, it won't.
As long as XD is profitable doing what it does it won't happen.
I'm sure Toon Disney was pretty profitable, and yet, it is NO MORE!
It has CEASED to BE!!
It has EXPIRED and gone to meet its maker!! [/quote]
And why was that? Because A) Disney wanted a network more aimed at boys, and B) Because it in all probably wasn't profitable enough as Toon Disney.
Trust me, Herald. Things are done more in business that are profit-oriented than just "WANTING" to do them.
F/X is also not a kiddie network.
And yet, "The Matrix" STILL got edited for family viewing!
Otherwise, why edit it at all??
And there's more than cussing that makes most Marvel material not-quite kiddy appropriate.
You mean like... THIS??
Disney's done it before, dude.
What else ya got??
And why doesn't it want to? Because Disney as a brand name is more family oriented (G-rated). It's why Disney created Hollywood and Touchtone because it needed to preserve it's Brand name, while producing the kind of not-quite family material like Splash or Down and Out in Beverly Hills, which were actually more profitable than the G-rated stuff the company had been putting out.
It's why "Blank Check" -- a movie that WAS released under the Disney label -- has the main character's dad compare something to "making love to a woman". DIRECT QUOTE.
It's why even the ANIMATED movies can get a PG rating!
Especially when they have a song all about a purported "righteous man's" naked lust for a Gypsy girl, as her image dances suggestively in flame:
I repeat: Disney's done it before, dude.
What else ya got??
When's the last time THAT was on Disney Channel? Thought so.
When I'm talking about a Marvel cable channel, I'm talking about something more oriented to the Marvel brand, which has a completely different audience that Disney does. More of something to compete with SyFy, if anything.
So this hypothetical channel will churn out crappy SF films with horrible writing and laughable special effects?? That's gonna be a severe downgrade from the Avengers movie...
Not as long as it's not owned by NBC/Universal/Comcast.
Like I said, there is no financial need for Disney Channel to air something like the Iron Man movies. Especially since they've appeared on TV already.
