Mike and Tommy — Kevin is still in Thailand — have the next billion-dollar movie franchise: the Mighty Ducks Universe (MDU). The crew breaks down they can mirror Marvel, and how Phase 1 of the MDU would play out it. It will start with an emotional Gordon Bombay origin story. Can he be our Iron Man?
A closer look at the Marvel and Star Wars movie franchise recipe
Marvel is the most successful movie franchise of all time, with $11.1 billion in revenue as of 2022, according to statista.com. Second place is Star Wars with $5.1 billion. Mighty Ducks is not on list….yet.
We’re using Marvel as a starting point. Here’s a list of all Marvel films. The first phase had six movies.
- Iron Man
- The Incredible Hulk
- Iron Man 2
- Captain America: The First Avenger
- The Avengers
Star Wars did it a little differently. It had:
- Original Trilogy
- Prequel Trilogy
- Sequel Trilogy (starting with The Force Awakens)
Our plan is to follow the Marvel’s move but keep the spirit of Star Wars’ honoring the past but still rebooting things.
- The Conways (working title)
- Bombay 2
- P.S. 118 (working title, but it’s set in the Mighty Ducks’ public school)
- Bombay 3
- The Mighty Ducks, Extended cut and remastered
The synopsis for Bombay:
A young Gordon Bombay bonds over the game of hockey with his dad and becomes a prodigy in the process. But when Bombay’s dad get sick, things fall apart at home and Bombay is left searching for both the spark in his playing career and a father figure. His hockey could might be able to fill the void, but is that a good thing?
