Rumors – and a stock market bump – surround Disney being in talks with 21st Century Fox to buy much of their entertainment side. Fox would retain some properties, mainly Fox News and Fox Sports, while Disney would end up with much of the movie and TV rights…
Wow. The empire of the mouse!
Disney would be able to bring the X-Men franchise and Fantastic Four (oh, PLEASE, make a good FF movie) under the Marvel banner. Disney would also get properties such as The Simpsons and, oh hey, the original prints for Star Wars! Would Star Wars finally get their REAL opener?
Although talks appear to be dead, that doesn’t mean that much. Disney might still steal away some of their properties or even end up with a cable channel or 2 out of the deal. Follow Nerdbot for more breaking entertainment news!
