James Gunn has many supporters, but none have been as vocal as Dave Bautista. The WWE wrestler-turned-movie actor has once again criticised Disney’s choice to remove Gunn from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, ‘thanking’ the company in a Tweet while sharing an article castigating their decision. “Thanks Disney!! Making America Great Again,” Bautista wrote alongside an article titled ‘Disney Not Rehiring James Gunn is a Big Mistake for Marvel (And Beyond)’.
It's not often that you look at a photo and get an idea for the next live-action remake. This is precisely what happened when a fan looked at a photo of Cher and Amanda Seyfried together at the London premiere of Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again , though. SEE ALSO: Mamma Mia! Here we go again with the memes. Twitter user @ceredemonials posted the aforementioned photo alongside a pic of Mother Gothel and Rapunzel from Disney's Tangled . The resemblance is uncanny. WHAT THE FUCK pic.twitter.com/HjD0NXjoes — raquel (@ceredemonials) August 13, 2018 WTF indeed. One person was so struck by the resemblance, they called for a Tangled Broadway musical starring Cher as Mother Gothel, and Amanda Seyfried as Rapunzel. Hmmm.....interesting resemblance ya got there...would be a real shame if someone....turNED TANGLED INTO A BROADWAY MUSICAL STARRING CHER AND AMANDA SEYFRIED https://t.co/ZJ6Sa4osnf — Kelly (@kellyblaus) August 14, 2018 Another massive Tangled fan called on Disney to get its act together and make a live action remake of the film post-haste. Hey @DisneyStudios @Disney I'm thinking it's time to get this in motion. I'll be expecting a live action remake of Tangled within the next few years. Please and thank you! Sincerely, a HUGE Tangled Fan 😂💖😍💫🙏🏽😇😘 https://t.co/8UChp1Zti0 — T O R I L Y N 🦄 (@tdizzle_240) August 15, 2018 Then fans got really into the idea, imagining Cher singing "Mother Knows Best." I can imagine Cher singing “Mother knows best” and it’s spectacular https://t.co/eI3ckpoKQm — Goldie 🌞 (@KristenAlexiss) August 15, 2018 In short, the people have spoken, Disney. give the ppl what we want https://t.co/ztLnI9xYTC — ً 🍑 (@Iovesjk) August 15, 2018 Give them what they want!

Despite having less than a handful of queer characters, Disney has had a fanatically devoted gay fanbase. Just take a look at Tumblr (briefly, before you get weirded out). This year, the company has finally decided to embrace their queer following (and profit potentials), releasing a full brand new line of gay pride merchandise. As of Monday, Disney's queer fans and allies can purchase everything from rainbow tank tops to rainbow Mickey Mouse hats. "The most magical place on earth" just got a whole lot gayer, and we're all the better for it. SEE ALSO: Disney introduces rainbow Mickey Mouse ears for LGBTQ Pride, but activists want more Over the past few months, Disney has been slowly introducing rainbow LGBTQ pride Mickey Mouse hats to their parks. They've now expanded that to an entire array of clothing. It appears to be the first year Disney has released a full collection of pride gear. Fans can buy anything from Disney pride pins to fitted tank tops to rainbow Mickey collection travel packs, all available on their website for purchase. Up your queer pin gameImage: store.disney.comFrom now until June 30, the company says they'll donate 10 percent of their profits to GLSEN, which advocates on behalf of LGBTQ students in schools. Obviously, Disney has a long way to go when it comes to representation of the queer community in their films and movies. Kids need more than fawning, gay LeFou to look up to. How about a masc-of-center Elsa, Disney? She can be a Princess and a charming androgynous locksmith. Still, it's a step forward at a time when our culture appears to be taking giant leaps back. I'll take any small, complicated dose of corporate progressivism wherever I can find it.

Comcast Chief Executive Brian Roberts only plans to proceed with the bid if a federal judge allows AT&T Inc's (T.N) planned $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner Inc (TWX.N) to proceed, the sources said. The U.S. Department of Justice has opposed the AT&T-Time Warner deal over antitrust concerns, and a decision from U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon is expected in June. Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger clinched an all-stock deal with Fox Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch in December to acquire Fox's film, television and international businesses, giving the world's largest entertainment company an arsenal of shows and movies to combat growing digital rivals Netflix Inc (NFLX.O) and Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O).
