Unfinished Business: How Disney and Marvel Killed Happily Ever Afters. Our neverending movie franchise culture has many unfortunate byproducts, but none more obvious than the noticeable lack of endings. Seeing as every Marvel and Disney movie has the inherent duty to set up the sequel in the not-so-distant future, no movie can be treated as a discrete unit and can't quite have an ending but rather a stopping point. The Guardian's Nicholas Barber examines how Disney and Marvel killed "happily ever afters. It's not just Han and Leia who aren't being allowed to live happily ever after, either. More and more film franchises are spoiling their heroes' retirements, thus snatching away the simple pleasure we once got from picturing their pipe-and-slippers contentment. Sylvester Stallone had wrapped up the story of his punch-drunk alter ego numerous times over the decades, but 2006's "Rocky Balboa" seemed to be the real deal. But Ryan Coogler's torch-passing drama yanks the champ away from his cosy neighborhood restaurant, inflicts cancer on him, and forces him to watch as his protegé embarks on a series of fights as bloodily punishing as his own. Both Rocky and Han Solo must have been tempted to quote Michael Corleone in "The Godfather: Part III": "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in. " Have we reached the end of endings. In "The Dark Knight Rises," Bruce Wayne turned his back on both Batman and Gotham City so he could swan around Florence with Selina Kyle. Similarly, "Iron Man 3" was the third part of a trilogy, and it was just as valedictory as "The Dark Knight Rises. Like the characters in "Star Wars," "Iron Man" and his buddies are owned by Disney, which means that Iger gets to decide their destiny. "[With] Marvel, you're dealing with thousands and thousands of characters," he said last week. "That will go on for ever. " There are some superhero fans, I know, who will be overjoyed by this promise, but I'd argue that the true fan would prefer his or her idols to have some well-earned downtime. For instance, the last "X-Files" film had Mulder and Scully living together in a secluded cottage, which is just what the pair's devotees had always prayed for. But now a new television series of "The X-Files" has begun, and in it we learn that – surprise surprise – Mulder and Scully have long since split. Source: News
