    Yeah, Disney is not going to overbid that.

    Disney has also been facing backlash in the past for their heavy-handedness with the fanbase (they may ben even WORSE than Lucasfilm ever was in that regard).
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    Ron White says you can't fix stupid. I beg to differ. Stupid will usually sort itself out, it's just a matter of making sure you're not close enough to become collateral damage.

    I read somewhere that the rights to Marvel characters that Fox owned would transfer back to Marvel upon the completion of the sale. Is that true?

    That's what I asked in the OP. I'd love to know because that's all we really care about anyway. X-Men and FF.

    Worse, they fought a Trumpian war with a critical media publication last year.

    No, because 20th Century Fox owns the rights (which is just changing parent companies), not 21st Century Fox.

    Jeez that's A LOT of money. But Disney has too much riding on this deal not to make a counter-offer. Should be an interesting next couple of weeks.

    So Disney/Marvel Studios would need to negotiate a Sony-like deal with Comcast.

    It depends on how much autonomy Fox is granted under Comcast. It's not like Rupert Murdoch was in charge of those negotiations up until now.

    After Dark Phoenix who knows. I think it's relatively safe to say that will be coming out. The deal, even if approved, won't be enacted until next summer from what I gather from the sources I've read. Disney has already brought up keeping Deadpool in much the same way, so Deadpool 3 will be fine. New Mutants I'm more concerned about, I think it's very possible that, given timing, that could end up being taken off the theater route but at very least we'd see a home release. Once Disney has the rights they will want some time to prepare the X-Men films and how continuity will cross over, if at all. My guess? Avengers Phase 4 will be in full swing in 2020, but will also have the Avengers/New Avengers (I'm calling it now) going in their downswing. Just in time for the X-Men films to become the highlight and focus of the Disney MCU. I would expect a movie no earlier than 2021 and no later than 2022 - not including Deadpool 3 of course which is its own unique situation.

    All this takes into the assumption that Disney will end up owning the rights. If Comcast gets the right it's a lot less clear what would likely happen. Could the series continue on or be rebooted? To be honest, I wouldn't even attempt to guess at this point, and that even includes Deadpool 3. Granted Comcast execs would likely know that's a solid commercial success right there and would keep the film planned to come out, but that's not official of course.

    Media analyst Michael Nathanson seems to think they will.

    “We continue to believe that Disney has the superior balance sheet, cost of debt, equity and rationale to emerge victorious over Comcast in a bidding war,” Nathanson writes. “The question is will Disney’s board and management go to the mat on this transaction? We think the answer is yes.”

    Ryan Reynolds is more focused on X-Force than Deadpool 3. I don’t see them making X-Men films for sometime if Disney owns Fox.

    Yeah keep holding your breath on that one. People have been predicting that since X-3. Twelve years later they’re still predicting it. Superheroes are too adaptable for that dress it in the trappings of a new genre and its fresh again. Just like Sci Fi which was going to die after Return of the Jedi in 83. 35 years later Sci Fi is still going strong too.
