Deal Between Disney, Fox May be Back On
The nerd world was sent into a frenzy when it was rumored Disney tried to buy 21st Century Fox’s entertainment properties.
Ultimately, the talks stopped and it seemed the dream of finally uniting the Avengers and X-Men under the same company had died.
However, Deadline’s Mike Fleming is reporting that the talks are heading toward Disney buying Fox’s TV and movie assets. Fox would retain its news and sports entities.
“I just want to start with a juicy rumor that is fast gaining steam in town today, that Disney is progressing speedily toward that rumored acquisition of Fox. The version I heard has the Murdoch clan keeping possession of sports and news properties, and the rest of TV and the film studio going to Disney,” Fleming explained.
In addition to the X-Men and associated characters like Deadpool, Fox also owns the rights to the Fantastic Four.
The other layer of this story is that Hugh Jackman has said he would play Wolverine again in an Avengers movie.
Of course, these are still just rumors, but Geeks of Color will keep you updated as the story progresses.
