At 12:02am ET on Wednesday, March 20th, the Walt Disney Company’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox will be officially complete.
The multi-billion dollar deal was first announced in December of 2017. After much consideration and negotiation, Disney will absorb the rights to all 21st Century Fox movie and TV divisions. This includes rights to entities like the X-Men, Deadpool, Fantastic Four, the Avatar franchise, the distributor Fox Searchlight, The X-Files, and Empire.
Fans are anxiously awaiting to hear what will happen to beloved characters after the merger. Will the X-Men characters join the Avengers’ Universe? What’s in store for Deadpool? Will the previously Fox-developed content end up on the upcoming streaming service Disney+?
According to Lauren Schuler Donner, X-Men franchise producer, “It’s all in Disney’s playground and they get to decide.”
In the meantime, at least Ryan Reynolds is excited for what the future has in store! He recently posted this photo with the caption, “Feels like the first day of ‘Pool”. The image shows his character, Deadpool, on a school bus heading to Disney.
