If you check your birth certificate, you’ll see that Disney actually owns you, too. Anyway, two things: 1) It’s peculiar that Jessica Jones will get a show before DC’s Wonder Woman, and 2) please, please, please hire Casey Affleck to play Daredevil. Sick one of your hired goons on him, Disney. After all, you own him/all of us.
