Disney Is Close To Purchasing Fox For $60 Billion Dollar Deal

Published

on

The MCU is about to get a whole lot bigger.

According to several sources, the Disney is close to buying out 20th Century Fox. Several weeks ago it was first reported that Fox was interested in selling off their entertainment section to focus on news and sports. Disney is interested in 21st Century Fox, which includes FX, Nat Geo, and the 20th Century Fox movie studio. As well as Fox shares in Hulu and Sky to beef up Disney’s digital streaming presence.

Fox was also talking with Comcast and Sony was said to be in the running for the purchase, but the Disney talks “have progressed more significantly,” according to this new report. The other huge part of this new report from CNBC is that it estimates the Fox assets in the Disney deal at more than $60 billion.

If the deal falls through Disney will be able to own the rights for most of the Marvel characters. The Avengers movies could refer to mutants, Wolverine could become an Avenger and bring Hugh Jackman out of retirement.

Back in February Hugh Jackman spoke about the possibility of returning to the role of Wolverine after Logan. Jackman explained that, had there been a chance to appear in an Avengers movie, things might have ended differently

“If that was on the table when I made my decision [to stop playing the character],” Jackman said, “it certainly would have made me pause. That’s for sure. Because I always love the idea of him within that dynamic, with the Hulk obviously, with Iron Man but there’s a lot of smarter people with MBAs who can’t figure that out [laughter]. You never know.”

Well, both companies are close to figuring it out. But it don’t get your hopes up too much. Marvel has their MCU planned out for the next 10 years, so it safe to say that characters from other franchises will likely just have small cameos. Also there is huge chance Disney allows Fox to continue as their own branch of the company.

Christopher Nolan will not follow Dunkirk up with 007.

The final movie starring Daniel Craig as the titular espionage agent is due out in late 2019. A director has yet to be named — but it won’t be Nolan who took his name out of the mix during an interview with BBC Radio 4.

“I won’t be the man,” he said during the segment. “No, categorically. I think every time they hire a new director I’m rumored to be doing it.”

Other directors rumored to get behind the helm include Yann Demange, Denis Villeneuve, David MacKenzie and Paul McGuigan.

The next 007 flick, known for now simply as James Bond 25, opens on November 8, 2019.

Thor: Ragnarok’s extended and deleted scenes show Jeff Goldblum at his best. With the upcoming digital, Blu-Ray, and DVD release of the movie, Marvel Studios has revealed deleted and extended scenes that highlight Goldblum’s character The Grandmaster.

One of the extended scenes features The Grandmaster trying to explain his elaborate hand signals to his bodyguard, Topaz (Rachel Mouse). Another revisits Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) first encounter with The Grandmaster and includes an unruly Saharan bat getting caught in the throne room during the meeting.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jeff Goldblum discusses the editing of Thor: Ragnarok and the choices its director, Taika Waititi made. “Anything that you see in the movie was a version selected by Taika’s tasteful editing from usually ten other choices of stuff that we tried. We just kind of had a growth spurt and creative ecstasy together and what you see is the result of something from that.”

Thor: Ragnarok, the third installment of the Marvel movies involving the titular Asgardian, revolves around Thor getting stuck on the gladiatorial planet of Sakaar (which is ruled by The Grandmaster), after a battle with Hela (Cate Blanchett). Once there, he reunites with Bruce Banner/The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Loki (Tom Hiddleston), and meets a new ally in Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson). Together, they must try and stop Hela from destroying Asgard.

Thor: Ragnarok will be available on digital platforms on Februry 20th. A DVD and Blu-Ray release will be available on March 6th. Watch the extended and deleted scenes below!
