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.

During a new interview for the sequel, the filmmaker also confirmed there will be about 20 minutes of deleted scenes for fans to pore over when this superhero sequel debuts on Blu-ray, DVD and digital formats.

“This is just ballpark, but I’d say there’s an additional 20 minutes of stuff. I am actually putting it together now. We’re taking sort of it slow. There’s a lot of alts we want to play with. I want to get Ryan in there so we’re making sure we’re all on the same page of like the comedy we want to do and the narrative. There are some great scenes in there that have been just lifted and it would be fun to be back in.”

The director also clarified that his first cut for the studio, his director’s cut, was between two hours and 12 minutes and two hours and 15 minutes

Zombieland 2 Plot Details Leaked Online

Published

on

Zombieland 2 will finally start filming in October. Details of the sequel have already been leaked online.

According to sources, Sony’s follow up to the 2009 film will focus on the aftermath of the first zombie outbreak.

Zombieland Too opens with a question. What would happen if we ran out of zombies? An interesting concept, one that hasn’t been explored in any film of the genre thus far. The way the film approaches answering the question is both hilarious and depressing. The change from ‘zombies’ to ‘no zombies’ can be considered as big as the change from ‘no zombies’ to ‘zombies.’ It’s such a dramatic transformation to one’s routine, what they consider normal, that it fundamentally alters their mentality. Boredom and apathy seep into each person’s psyche, slowly growing discontent with one another until they reach an inevitable boiling point.”

Splash Report also posted news on the potential plot for the sequel.

“The main plot of Zombieland Too follows the gang as they attempt to find Little Rock after she ran away with an individual (unnamed due to spoilers). Columbus, Tallahassee, and Wichita embark on a journey that takes them all the way across the country to hopefully save LR from certain death. You know how earlier I mentioned zombies were now extinct in Zombieland? I lied. You see, while the regular, lumbering creatures from the first film have no interest in humans anymore, rendering them essentially extinct, they have been replaced by Super Zombies, giant, muscular, incredibly tough beings that are only able to be killed through a headshot. A horde of these super-zombies has been migrating from city to city, destroying everything in its wake. And it’s up to the gang to finally put an end to this bloodshed, or face extinction themselves.”
