    I’m wanting to do a binge-a-thon on the MCU movies before watching Endgame, in order. I don’t care going to the movies so Captain Marvel is holding me up. But I’ve been thinking.

    With Disney+ on the horizon, what benefit is there to buying movies on iTunes? Other than the extras, I can pay $7/month and watch them all. It looks like the cheapest iTunes goes is $15/movie. $330 for all 22.

    That's a LOT of movies and a lot of hours to binge on
    I'd just check out a couple of the recaps and overviews that are available on YouTube :)

    As a Apple shareholder, I’d prefer you rent them on iTunes.

    Oh. I’ve seen them all. And own some of them. But I just wanted to enjoy the story as it unfolds in order.

    I was watching all the Star Wars movies each time a new one came out. But that wasn’t as big an investment.

    Did I miss something that stayed that every movie offered on iTunes will be available on Disney+?

    I just meant these Disney movies. But I think I saw another studio was considering launching their own streaming service.

    Rent rather than purchase. If renting is $2.99 per movie, the total for 21 movies is about $60.
