Disney Is In Early Talks To Buyout Fox

Published

on

Walt Disney Company is trying to continue their dominance in film and television with their latest power move. CNBC is reporting that Disney is early talks to buy a portion of Fox. The two companies have been in talks for several weeks.

Fox would change its growth strategy and focus on news and sports, according to people familiar with the situation. The talks have taken place over the last few weeks and there is no certainty they will lead to a deal. The two sides are not currently talking at this very moment, but given the on again, off again nature of the talks, they could be revisited.

Disney already owns a large portion of the biggest media companies, Lucasfilm, Marvel Studios, ABC, ESPN, and they even own 47% of Amazon. Disney is interested in 21st Century Fox, which includes FX, Nat Geo, and the 20th Century Fox movie studio. The company has also announced plans to launch their own digital service to compete with Netflix and Hulu.

The potential deal would not include the Fox broadcast network.“Fox’s sports programming assets in the belief that combining them with ESPN could be seen as anti-competitive from an antitrust standpoint,” and the sale would not include Fox News or Fox’s business channel.

For comic book fans, this can be the beginning of a new era with Disney taking back the rights to many of Marvel’s characters. The Avengers movies could refer to mutants, Wolverine could become an Avenger, and Deadpool could team up with Spider Man. Ok. Maybe not the last one, but you get the point.

Published

El-P and Killer Mike are ready for an alien invasion in their lastest video.

The clip opens with a comical RTJ3 news report teasing “strange weather patterns” throughout the city. From there, it cuts to Killer Mike and El-P walking backstage at the Garden to rapturous applause. When they walk back out for an encore, they discover that the audience has vanished. Meanwhile, a series of threats – falling meteors, mutant spiders, UFOs – loom outside.

“Call Ticketron” highlights the rap duo’s third LP, 2016’s Run the Jewels 3. The group, which recently concluded a massive 2017 tour, will kick off a leg of Australian dates in January followed by a supporting slot on Lorde’s North American spring tour.

Last week, Run the Jewels earned their first Grammy nomination (for Best Rap Song) with “Chase Me,” a collaboration with Danger Mouse and Big Boi from the Baby Driver soundtrack.

Deadpool Will Continue To Be Rated R

Published

on

The merch with the mouth will continue to be the same character. Disney CEO Bob Iger has addressed the future of Deadpool, confirming Fox’s film franchise will remain R-rated following Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox.

“It [Deadpool] clearly has been and will be Marvel branded. But we think there might be an opportunity for a Marvel-R brand for something like Deadpool,” Iger said in a call with investors following the news that Disney will purchase 21st Century Fox  “As long as we let the audiences know what’s coming, we think we can manage that fine,” he added.

Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld also chimed in on the decision.

[Disney CEO] Bob Iger didn’t deliver this unprecedented level of historic success for Disney by accident. This man gets it. He understands the culture and more importantly, he understands the concerns of the fans. Addressing the Deadpool issue right out of the gate gets high marks and in all honesty, why would they mess with the success that Ryan Reynolds has achieved as Deadpool?
