Marvel Studios, AVENGERS: ENDGAME, and the best franchise ever?

Writer-producer-director, Robert Meyer Burnett, explains how Marvel Studios has been able to put together a 22-0 record when it comes to making hit movies and, quite possibly, the most successful IP franchise in the history of filmmaking. Also in today’s Robservation, RMB covers a number of other subjects, including …

  • Why the success or failure of the Marvel Studios depends on Kevin Fiege.
  • The importance of putting your characters ahead of your universe.
  • What does it mean if CAPTAIN MARVEL brings in $1B at the box office?
  • Should we separate the art from the artist once it’s been created?
  • RMB swears off speculating on AVENGERS: ENDGAME – yet he’s willing to offer his opinion as to who is going to die in the movie.
  • Why isn’t there a blu-ray disc of STAR WARS: THE MOTION PICTURE (Director’s Cut)?
  • Doesn’t Mr. Spock have enough of a personal struggle? Does he really NEED to have a learning disability (like he does in STAR TREK: DISCOVERY)?
  • Why haven’t the directors of the STAR WARS movies succeeded like the directors selected to direct the MCU films?
  • What was wrong with STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE JEDI

… plus super-chat questions from viewers and more!
