Just a few days ago we reported that the deal between Disney & 21st Century Fox were still in the works; now, we have an update from The Wall Street Journal that suggests a decision to pursue the sale could possibly be made by the end of the year! If you’ve been under a rock these past few weeks, Fox is looking to sell their entertainment rights and Disney is rumored to be extremely interested.
This would mean that The Simpsons, Avatar, and the original six Star Wars movie properties would belong to Disney and of course X-Men, Deadpool, & the Fantastic Four would officially be in the MCU. Sony was rumored to be interested in acquiring the entertainment rights as well, but those talks have since died down. It’ll be interesting to see my favorite superheroes (the X-Men) be apart of the MCU officially but I am a bit worried that some of these characters could get lost in the mix. Tell us what you think! Could the likes of Deadpool truly exist in the MCU?
