It’s ironic that Disney, Marvel’s parent company, was hit so hard by the writers’ strike. Last week, the company made headlines for all the wrong reasons by weeding out a slew of movies and series from its Disney+ streaming platform. This was seen as a way to cut costs – but perhaps more accurately as a way to stop paying the writers and producers on the projects. The Step to Expose flashes And miracle man follows Marvel’s decision to begin filming Dead Pool Threequel, which is arguably one of the franchise’s most improvised titles.

Why are the writers on strike?

The Writers Guild of America argues that due to the proliferation of streaming platforms, its members are not getting their fair share of residual payments. If a TV program is broadcast on regular television and streaming, the latter is remunerated with significantly lower amounts. For streamers, authors are paid a flat fee regardless of success, but broadcast TV uses a reward-for-success model. In layman’s terms, if a series is a hit, the writers can earn more on residuals.

Because of this, for example, everyone can be associated with it Friends, a massive TV giant in the 1990s and 2000s, still makes a handsome buck today thanks to syndication and selling streaming rights. The WGA also advocates for a higher salary floor and for regulation of the use of artificial intelligence in screenwriting, and is demanding a guarantee from the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers that it will not be “used as source material,” eliminating the WGA’s need for living, breathing writing staff.
