Here's what's happening today in pop culture:

• Producer Jerry Bruckheimer's long "first look" deal with Disney will end next year — as the studio sticks to its many franchises (Marvel, Muppets, "Star Wars," Pixar) and the action producer aims for more and bigger explosions. That said, we're still getting more "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "National Treasure" movies. [The Hollywood Reporter]

• The NFL has been engaged in a long, and before now under-the-radar, legal battle with rapper M.I.A. — claiming damages to the brand after she flipped the bird during Madonna's Super Bowl halftime show in 2012. And you had forgotten about that, hadn't you? [The Huffington Post]

• A "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" reunion special is in the works at Bravo, 10 years after that show was actually a thing. [Vulture]
