Honestly? I can do without. The older I get, with some niche movies aside like Godzilla, the more I like smaller, simpler films. The Sisters Brothers was a treat, for example, so was Knives Out. As much as I love the characters, I don't remember Iron Man or Captain America making a cameo on either. Besides, in regards to marketshare and screenshare and releases, at this point boycotting Disney is like boycotting theaters in general.

I surmised about a year ago that movies and television are a 'boomer phenomenon that will vanish into the sand as they sundown into oblivion. But I also have agreed with everyone saying how precarious the economy is and what a catastrophic implosion we've been due and it's one thing to know something and quite another to see it happen. It's like understanding that global warming is going to kill us all but still being shocked when the glacier falls into the ocean.
