Apple Prepares a Home Invasion as Marvel Beats a Retreat

News reports say that Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) will unveil tools for controlling everything in your home... right from your iPhone. Creepy, or a wicked cool investing opportunity for those who don't yet own Apple stock?

Then, we talk about two high-profile defections from Marvel Studios projects. After eight years, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish have left Ant-Man, while Drew Goddard departs the Netflix original Daredevil to focus on the next big installment in The Amazing Spider-Man franchise. Should Walt Disney (NYSE: DIS  ) investors be worried?

From there, we move on to X-Men: Days of Future Past. A huge opening overseas has the movie tracking nearly as well as Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Is this franchise as big a deal as Twenty-First Century Fox (NASDAQ: FOXA  ) would like us all to believe?

Finally, we look into the Showtime original Penny Dreadful, and its chances of filling the hole left by Dexter before weighing in on Apple's $3 billion purchase of Beats Music. Will the show defy its name and deliver for CBS (NYSE: CBS  ) investors? Will Dr. Dre bring new rhythm to the Mac's daddy?
