Disney has been acquiring some major properties in the past few years. They’ve purchased the rights to Pixar, which has given them not only a box office smash animation studio but an Academy Award-winning one as well. They’ve also purchased the rights to Marvel, which has led to the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Lucasfilm, their latest major acquisition, has already given way to two successful hits.

But now they are looking to make their biggest acquisition yet. According to a new report, Disney is looking into purchasing 20th Century Fox – which includes their film division and television division. This could be a huge game-changer for the entertainment industry as it shrinks the competition and also makes a studio much bigger. More on the story below.

Bob's Burgers Image

If an animated TV series becomes successful, chances of it eventually getting its own movie are fairly high. We’ve seen it happen over and over again—sometimes as theatrical releases (South Park, The Simpsons) and sometimes as straight-to-video or TV movies (Family Guy, Futurama). And now it’s happening with FOX’s hit animated title Bob’s Burgers.

A release date for the animated feature has also been reserved, but fans will have a little bit of waiting to do. The movie is scheduled for release on July 17, 2020.

X-Men

In just a couple of weeks Fox will air their quasi-X-Men spinoff TV series, Legion. The show, starring Dan Stevens and Aubrey Plaza, does not take place in the same universe as the one seen in the film franchise.

However, the one being created by Matt Nix (Burn Notice) does. The untitled show will center on a world where people hate mutants and sentinels exist. Now it’s been announced that a pilot for that show has been ordered, and more details are coming out about it along with confirmation that longtime X-Men film director Bryan Singer will helm the pilot. Check it out below.

FX's X-Men Spinoff TV Series Legion

Unlike their Marvel Cinematic Universe competitors, Fox’s X-Men film universe is a bit limited. This is due to the fact that they do not have access to any of the Marvel characters other than their own. However, that hasn’t stopped them from expanding it with reboots, spinoffs, and TV series.

Legion, Fox’s first new X-Men series, will premiere in just a couple of weeks. Many have speculated that it will take place some time after the events of the X-Men film universe. With that formula working so well for Disney and Marvel, it only makes sense that Fox try to replicate it. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case. In fact, it will not take place in the film universe at all, according to producer Lauren Shuler Donner. A different X-Men TV series, however, will. Find out what Donner had to say about the show and its place within the film universe below.

Starz's Camelot - Sword in the Stone

King Arthur is going through a bit of a renaissance. The character will appear in three separate films in the next few years in Guy Richie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Michael Bay’s Transformers: The Last Knight, and Disney’s live-action reimagining of the The Sword in the Stone.

Each of these films will tell a different story of the legendary character, and being such a legend, his story also deserves to be told on the small screen. A new report confirms that Fox is currently developing a King Arthur procedural series called Camelot. Yup. TV is at that point of scraping the bottom of the barrel. More on the story below.

HellFire Club X-Men

In August, during the TCAs, Fox was negotiating a deal with Marvel to produce X-Men TV shows, following Marvel’s success with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter, and The CW’s Arrow and The Flash for Warner Bros. Television.

Fox currently has Gotham, the Batman prequel that centers on James Gordon’s early career as a Gotham City detective and a young Bruce Wayne’s journey to becoming the Dark Knight. But it appears the studio wants more, and is going to dip into a Marvel property that they already own. A new report says that Fox has made some in-house hires to work on two TV series: one centered on Professor X’s son called Legion, and another on the villainous Hellfire Club called Hellfire. They will also be working with Marvel on these two X-Men shows. More on the story below.
