The potential deal has been the talk of the town as of late, with many Marvel fans dreaming of the day when the X-Men could meet the Avengers on screen. That dream has now become a reality, as Disney just reached a deal to purchase much of 21st Century Fox for a whopping $52.4 billion.
And it was worth every penny.
The Walt Disney Company is now the owner of many Fox divisions, including its movie and television divisions. With the agreement being reached, the company has the rights to X-men, Deadpool, James Cameron’s Avatar, The Simpsons, The X-Files, and basically the rest of the entertainment world as well.
The company will also purchase Fox’s majority stake in Hulu’s video streaming service, which bodes well for their own streaming service, which is soon to come.
This news is huge for the entertainment landscape, but particularly effects fans of comic book films.
