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.
