Fox Selling FF and X-MEN Movie Rights to Disney

Recommended Posts

The FANTASTIC FOUR And X-MEN May Finally Come To The MCU As Fox Looks To Sell Movie Studio To Disney
 
Well, it's fair to say none of us saw this coming! 21st Century Fox has been in talks with Disney to sell its movie studio and that means the Fantastic Four and X-Men characters would return to Marvel.

I have to say, that's too bad. Aside from an inability to make F4 work, Fox did right by their Marvel properties.

And I'm not in love with the idea of, potentially, DisneyMovieCo owning most of Hollywood.

Disney is already fleecing theater owners over Star Wars showings.  Demanding bigger takes and prime screens for long windows.  Consumers loose out in the end because those costs will be ultimately be passed on to theater goers.  Seen the price of a Disney animation movie bluray lately?  Out of control.  Competition is our friend.

Yup.

For TFA, they want 65% of ticket sales upfront and a guarantee that TFA holds their largest screens for 4 weeks minimum.

And those are just the terms that have leaked.

it's not actually a done deal according to io9:

Even so, seems like a likelihood. I mean, if they really want rid of it, who else to sell to? 

 

Still, I'd like to see it fall through.

I agree. Too much power concentrated in one place.
