Disney to buy Fox?

Avengers and X-Men, unite!!!

From Variety.Com:

Quote:
Disney and Fox are racing towards the finish line.

The two media companies are expected to announce a $60 billion-plus pact this week that will see Disney snap up much of Fox’s television and film holdings. If completed, the deal will dramatically reshape the entertainment landscape, bringing together for the first time two of Hollywood’s “Big Six” studios under common ownership, all to give Disney the bigger arsenal of programming it needs to do battle with Netflix and other new entrants in the content business.

What do you think the ramifications of such a deal would be? Would it really form a monopoly? Or simply a step toward one? How will this impact the movies we watch?

Personally, I'm just excited about the prospect of seeing a united Marvel cinematic universe that includes the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men *AND* the Fantastic Four. Think about all the crossover possibilities! I think Marvel Studios (owned by Disney) does a great job with their superhero movies, much better than Fox does with theirs. A revamped X-Man and Fantastic Four would be great.

I read somewhere that we'd see a lot fewer R-rated films from Sony because of the Disney influence. My opinion is, who cares? Good movies are good movies. You don't need to be R-rated to have a successful film.

I really hope this happens.

About the R-rated movies, I'm not for certain, but I thought Disney had two separate divisions now: one for animation and one for everything else. If that's that she case, I don't that think content would really change.

Wow. Months after I first posted this thread, it seems the Disney-Fox deal is *FINALLY* ready to close. I think this is great!

I would love to see a mega-movie that combines the Avengers, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Spider-Man and Deadpool all in one 2.5-hour film! That would be so awesome! Plus, now Marvel will have access to cool villains like Galactus and Dr. Doom.

I'm not familiar with what comic book storylines could be adapted to film, but why not just write an entirely new plot? Create a crisis that demands that all of these heroes join forces?

The deal is done! Smiley

From newsarama.com:

Quote:
In a meeting Friday morning, shareholders of 21st Century Fox and the Walt Disney Company approved Disney's $71.3 billion bid to tak eover a large portion of Fox's assets, including 20th Century Fox's movie and TV studio.

The U.S. Department of Justice has already approved the transaction.

In separate meetings, shareholders reportedly approved the transaction in sessions that lasted less than 15 minutes each.
