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.

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?
