  1. Is Marvel reaching the edge of its own universe, over the past few years Marvel have created a nexus of shows and movies spread across commercial TV, Pay TV and now SVOD, after Disney effectively gained control of the worlds most watched franchises like Star Wars and Marvel it quickly used its commercial muscle to fully diversify itself into marketing more consumer products, the characters of the shows and movies became no more than promos to sell things in stores. Disney has demonstrated its intent to protect it’s creative control when it ended its partnership with Netflix, but their is a risk for Disney as the recent criticisms by Star Wars fans have shown, that if you lose the faith of the fans you will eventually lose everything.
