    Default Official: Disney purchase FOX for $60 billion






    CNBC

    Disney and Twenty-First Century Fox are closing in on a deal, and it could come as soon as next week, according to sources familiar with the matter.

    CNBC has been reporting that Disney has held talks with the Rupert Murdoch-controlled media company to acquire its studio and television production assets, leaving Fox with its news and sports assets. Fox is also talking with CNBC parent company Comcast, but the talks with Disney have progressed more significantly.

    The deal contemplates the sale of Fox's Nat Geo, Star, regional sports networks, movie studios and stakes in Sky and Hulu, among other properties. What would remain at Fox includes its news and business news divisions, broadcast network and Fox sports.

    The enterprise value of the Fox assets in the Disney deal is seen as above $60 billion, according to sources. Current Fox shareholders would get one share of the Fox company that remains after the movie and television assets are sold plus shares of Disney in a fixed exchange ratio.

    I don't get the hype. It doesn't matter who owns it it's still going to be screwed up without internal changes at marvel.

    Films=/=Comics

    Marvel comics have been a mess for a while, but films have been a tight ship that have been running smoothly.

    Part of me wants to see this AND for Disney to restore Wanda and Pietro as Magneto's children, just to see how the comics division scrambles to retcon the retcon. (Because, movie synergy.)

    Should be easy. Movie Wanda's dead parents weren't the real parents could be the explanation

    I do not know about movies but the rest would be good news for the mutants.

    Games, Cartoons and Toys will be the end of restrictions.

    How long has it been since we have a cartoon with the mutants?

    If this agreement works and be signed we can have mutants in games like Marvel vs. Capcom again.

    It's just a shame that has not happened before maybe we could have avoided IvX or the stupid retcon involving Magneto, Wanda and Pietro.

    Yeah I think Wolverine & Deadpool are a lock for Marvel vs Capcom next year at least.


    The new cartoon should be out probably 6 months after MCU reboot

    Eaaasy...I doubt they'll halt production of X-Force or end the Deadpool franchise. My guess is they'll keep it because it's working, but retool the X-men proper and integrate them into the MCU. Works for me.

    And one way they could do that is multiverse travel like how DC does on some of their TV programs.
