"We are a content creator," said Iger on Fox Business yesterday. "These new platforms are voracious in terms of their appetite for good content and we can make it."
"There are some interesting opportunities for us to monetize not just our brands, but our ability to create high-quality branded intellectual property," he said.
The suggestion is in line with a recent reconfiguration of Disney's film strategy. The company has decided to shift its focus from tentpole films - such as The Lone Ranger which accrued $89 million at the US box office against its estimated $250 million budget - to franchise films from Disney-owned Lucasfilm and Marvel Entertainment.
Earlier this week, Disney ended its partnership with longtime producer Jerry Bruckheimer, a move it says was unrelated to the box-office failure of Bruckheimer-produced The Lone Ranger.
Though Iger did not mention which of the three platforms Disney would sign with, Netflix has held an exclusive multi-year contract with Disney for the rights to host its catalog of animated and live-action films since late 2012.
On the recent 'Mad Money', Jim Cramer said while analysts are concerned with Disney's growth prospects, he believes it is "poised for solid, long-term growth".
Disney shares were up 0.11% as of 9:50 a.m. EST, after closing yesterday at $64.32. Overall, Disney is leading the S&P 500 which is down 0.15%.
