Finally, we have a discussion about why 52 percent of Disney shareholders think Bob Iger makes too much money.
This week we look at why in the world Marvel would move up the debut of Avengers: Infinity War. Disney pushes the live-action Mulan back to 2020 and made several other changes to its larger slate.
