Fans might finally get what they’ve been dreaming of for the longest time. According to CNBC, The Walt Disney Company is reportedly in talks to purchase most of 21st Century Fox. That means the X-Men might finally be part of the MCU.
The potential deal would exclude a number of Fox assets, like the Fox broadcast network, Fox News, Fox Business, and Fox Sports. It would, however, include the 20th Century Fox studio, which is home to Fantastic Four, X-Men, Deadpool, the Alien film franchise, Avatar and the original Star Wars film.
Of course, this deal would shake up the industry. Following the news, shares in 21st Century Fox already spiked on Monday. Of course, both Disney and Fox have yet to comment on the supposed deal.
