Shareholders have agreed to approve Disney’s buyout of 21st Century Fox’s major assets. This came after a drawn out battle with Comcast to purchase the studio, though it was decided that Disney was a better fit for fox’ needs. Fox Broadcasting Co. and Fox’s TV station group, including Fox Sports, Fox News, as well as nearly a dozen sports stations, will not be a part of the buyout, and will be rebranded as New Fox.
This news obviously has fanboys in a tither, as it opens the door for the ultimate big screen Marvel crossover, with nearly all of the Marvel characters under one roof (many characters of the extended Spidy-verse is still exclusive to Sony, and Universal has its hands on a couple of characters that are off limits, like She-Hulk). It will likely be quite some time before we see any kind of George Perez-like character money shot on the big screen.
