Apparently, Disney weren't happy with its $1.4 billion haul. That's a lot of money, but not enough, and not what many expected after the success of the first instalment and the Phase 2 releases which preceded it. The site adds that, "as a result, at Disney, it has been dubbed a failure. Which enabled Kevin Feige to use it leverage to push out Isaac Perlmutter."

A few years ago after Eddie Murphy did Coming to America. The writer Buck Henry sued for stealing his idea (he wrote a story similar to the film) and won a suit against Murphy and the film company. Even though the film made a huge profit and was a success, they managed to get out of the law suit decision by having the gall to say that the film did not make a profit. Thus not pay Buck Henry. The studio got away buy saying stock holders need to get paid, and talent ha back end deals. All Fuzzy Chinese math. So it quite possible this was done on purpose to do god knows what. Fire this guy, didn't meet Wall Street expectations, keep Disney stock down for a buy back, who knows.

I think you are right... if Disney aren't happy with the critical reception and the "$1.4 billion and counting" takings then they should get out of the movie making buisiness.

Absurd claim.

I have a flat on the market. I have paid off part of the capital and due to inflation, it means I could sell it for a profit quite easily.

However, if I make £20k on it (compared to all my outgoings), it would still be a failure if I could have realistically got £30k profit.

As a publicly traded company Disney's earnings are forecasted far in advance. Since the film fell short of those expectations, and they would have already been figured into the stock price by speculators, the $1.4 billion had a negative impact on shares of Disney and was a disappointment.

That's what they get for being greedy.

Forest Gump, the Harry Potter films, and Lord of the Rings films all made a tremendous amount of money. All were one way or another dubbed to have lost money. It is why any major star signing a contract has to have both their lawyer and accountant look over it and be prepared to sue of the studio tries to pull this.
