New Mutants

It’s going to be a while before Marvel Studios can find a way to incorporate the X-Men films and characters into the MCU properly. So for the time being, Fox will be releasing their current slate of X-Men films as is. That slate included three films that were to be released this year. They were The New Mutants, Deadpool 2, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

However, it looks like Fox has done some scheduling shifts for at least two of the films. Deadpool 2 is getting bumped up to an earlier release, while The New Mutants is getting pushed back, way back to next year. Gambit is also getting a new release date, but who knows if that film will ever get made. Check out when these films will be released in the full story below.

Deadpool 2 Teaser: Ryan Reynolds As Bob Ross

Yes, Disney has bought 21st Century Fox. So most of their entertainment assets will belong to the mouse. That means that X-Men and Fantastic Four can now play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s sandbox. Whether or not they will remains to be seen.

But for those who were worried that Disney would tone down some of the more adult comic movies such as Deadpool, you can relax. Disney CEO Bob Iger says he intends to keep Deadpool as an R-rated movie. More on what he had to say about that and the future of rated-R Marvel movies below.

Deadpool

We’ve been hearing whispers that the mega-deal between The Walt Disney Company and 21st Century Fox could happen as soon as Thursday, and this morning it became official: Disney has purchased Fox for around $52.4 billion. Disney is also inheriting around $13.7 billion of debt, making the total cost of the deal about $66 billion. In the deal Disney is acquiring all entertainment properties and more, while the Fox Broadcasting news and sports assets will be spun off to shareholders under a new company.

On the entertainment side of things, this now means Disney owns and controls all of Fox’s brands and titles including the X-Men and Deadpool franchises, the Avatar movies, the original Star Wars trilogy, The Simpsons and other Fox shows as well as all of the FX Network series, and even Fox’s stake in Hulu, which now gives Disney controlling interest in the streaming service (making their own planned streaming service even more interesting).

You can find more details below.

In the last few days, Bohemian Rhapsody, the Freddie Mercury biopic, has been looking for a new director since Fox fired Bryan Singer (X-Men: Apocalypse) after reports of constant absences and on-set clashes with the cast started to surface. Singer claims that he was absent to address a family matter. However, the studio promised that they would find a director to finish the job, which had two weeks of production left on the schedule.

Now it appears that they have found him. Reports confirm that Eddie The Eagle director Dexter Fletcher will be Singer’s replacement. More on the story below.

X-Men and Avengers crossover

It has been a few weeks since we first heard about the possibility of The Walt Disney Company acquiring 20th Century Fox. Though details were slim, if Disney were to buy Fox it would mean that the studio would acquire their entertainment division, which includes film properties, TV properties, Nat Geo, and more.

At first, it appeared that there was a fallout between the two when the then-rumored deal leaked. However, talks started again, and much of the deal remained the same with Fox continuing to retain their sports and news media outlets. Now the deal that looked like it would take months to complete could be done as soon as next week. More on the story below.

Avengers and X-Men

When there was word that Disney was entertaining the idea of buying out the 20th Century Fox film and TV properties, fans got excited at the idea that X-Men and Fantastic Four could finally come into the MCU fold. Avatar land made more sense, too. And the idea that Disney could possibly release more mature material under the Fox banner became a possibility. But as soon as that news broke, the deal was off.

Now it appears that the deal may not be as dead as we first thought. There are reports that X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner is becoming one of the key players to make this deal happen. More on the story below.

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.
