$52.4 billion acquisition. Fuck me that's a lot of money!

 

And now, Xmen and Fantastic Four has finally joined MCU. Expect cameos from them, and of course expect Deadpool to question how absurd it all is. ALL HAIL EMPEROR MICKEY MOUSE!!

$52.4 billion, make no mistake even for a entertainment juggernaut like Disney that's ALLOT of money!  Keep in mind this ins't just the Marvel assets but parts Lucas Arts, The Simpsons, Aliens, Family Guy.... literally dozens if not hundreds of IP's and assets.

 

Overall I'm glad because Fox's approach to their Marvel assets in particular were getting increasingly misguided but I'm worried about how much Disney is monopolising everything.

Here is a somewhat more accurate outline of what properties go to who:

Essentially all of the entertainment aspects of Fox are going to Disney, and they're going to remain a "news" network.

So I believe this means that Disney now owns a majority stock in Hulu? Will we be seeing more Disney things there and not in whatever weird stream service they've been pushing?

All I want to know is...did Ryan Reynolds grab his Deadpool outfit and call the director of DP2 as soon as the news came out, or the day after? Because you know they have to put at least a ten second clip of Deadpool wearing mouse ears in Deadpool 2 now! :D
