Break fee in place if US regulators scupper merger

Break fee in place if US regulators scupper merger

Sort of. Over the years.

With the Fantastic Four and X-Men film rights presumably coming back to Marvel as part of the Walt Disney Company acquisition of 21st-Century Fox, the House of Ideas is one step closer to having full control of all of its characters.

But there are still some Marvel properties outside the ever-growing Disney bubble.

And while some execs are already relishing rebooting (and recasting) Wolverine, a Logan spinoff centering on Wolverine's daughter X-23 is likely not going to go far at this stage.

Many analysts consider further consolidation simply a matter of time.

The Disney-branded streaming service that's set to launch in 2019 would be aimed at families, with Disney's Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm brands at the center.

Fox is bigger, though.

Yet Sky News, in which Murdoch's company owns a 39 percent stake, asked an inconvenient question: How has the sexual harassment scandal at Fox News affected the company? The studio has generally ranked either third or fourth in market share.

Oh, and The Simpsons has always really despised Disney.

Fox isn't necessarily disappearing. Mind you, Hulu is just in the US, while Netflix is global. Only time will tell what those stories will be! "[Deadpool] clearly has been and will be Marvel-branded", he explained.

"We're disappointed in the decision to gut Net Neutrality protections that ushered in an unprecedented era of innovation, creativity and civic engagement", the statement on Twitter reads. Disney has plans to run three, stand-alone streaming services and could benefit from net neutrality being repealed.

The ECB now expects the eurozone's economy to grow 2.4 per cent this year, but admitted it would not hit its inflation target by 2020.

The combination of sensibilities between Disney and Fox, has intrigued others.

This is basically a given, as the Disney press release announcing Thursday's deal specifically mentions "the opportunity to reunite the X-Men" with the rest of their fellow Marvel Comics characters.

A REAL Fantastic Four movie!

Describing the deal as "Good for Disney, bad for Fox", Millar stated that there was "zero upside" to deal as he believed risky projects such Deadpool will never be developed at Disney.

It's finally happening, and a lot of nerd dreams may come true in the near future.

Tom Holland scene in the movie Spider-Man, Homecoming. "We fully intend to stay in those businesses".

"For some advertisers Fox News is an important way to reach their customers", said Barry Lowenthal, president of The Media Kitchen, a New York-based media buyer.

"If Disney is an NFL team, then every movie on the calendar is like a Heisman Trophy winner", says one insider.

That's a component of the deal that will strike fear in the hearts of exhibitors. Now, Disney CEO Bob Iger has stepped up and confirmed the supposition (via Deadline). Well, now that's changed. Last week on CNBC, Adam Aron, AMC chief executive, applauded Disney's track record.

Rupert Murdoch made himself a whole boatload of money today. For Fox, this deal means a rather hefty payday but for Marvel, it's more of a long-overdue homecoming.

Hollywood may have shrunk into not the Big Five, but the Big One.
