The Legion disambig sounds like a good idea.

A Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019) article has been created (I'll expand it later), and a trailer is out. But is the "2019" disambiguator necessary? The original Modern Warfare game was called Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, with a numeral, while the reboot has no numeral.

Dunkirk will need to be added because of Dunkirk (1958)

(maybe we need a page like Hyphenated Titles that anyone can edit to add that they find)

There is a new ""Charlie's Angels'' film coming out with the same title so the old one should probably be moved

I have found cases of fanfics sharing their names with works that are completely unrelated to them.

I'm pretty sure there are many more out there; those are just the ones I can recall on top of my head.

I think most my edits are me adding the proper numbers of - to quotes.

[up]If there is an actual risk of a subpage collision, the fanfiction is disambiguated by fandom or author, while the other work's page usually doesn't move. Since apparently fanfics are less "official works" or whatever.

(I'm not saying what should happen here, just what is already happening. I'm not trying to start an argument.)

On that note, Fanfic.Emergence (RWBY) should be disambiguated to make room for future work Series.Emergence. I'll take care of that one myself, probably tomorrow.

Misspelled trope names dealt with... for now. Moving back to the Understatement project soon?
