But subscribers are hoping that changes once Marvel Studios starts to roll out their first superhero shows set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Not too long ago, Disney put up their awards consideration pages for the films they hope will land some nominations from the Oscars, Golden Globes and other important Hollywood organizations. When it came to Avengers: Endgame, the usual ambition was there for Best Picture, Best Director, and a slew of technical awards. But there was one surprising exclusion.
