    Thumbs up Disney in talks to aquire Fox's entertainment division.

    Marvel may finally get the X-Men and Fantastic Four characters back.

    In a shocking turn of events, it's been revealed today that 21st Century Fox is looking to sell the majority of its assets to the Walt Disney Co. The sale would leave the company focusing solely on news and sports and that means the movie studio would also go to the House of Mouse. What does that mean? Well, the
    Fantastic Four
    and
    X-Men
    franchises would once again belong to Marvel Studios!

    Update.



    On Friday, Faber said that although the two companies have not been engaged in conversations "it does appear at the very least that they have not abandoned the idea of that combination."

    I'm not sure letting Disney have all the properties back is good. More variety is inevitable if properties are spread apart, less groupthink. But that's an opinion.
    Keep your stick on the ice.

    Live it.

    Disney having all the properties would've made an MCU Alpha Flight movie easier, though!

    I first heard this rumour in the morning, it was quashed that same afternoon.
