Officially Official – X-Men and Fantastic Four Move To Disney In Sale Of Fox!

As you can hear on our latest podcast, dropped this morning (go to the podcast tab on this site,) your Trusty Sidekicks told you that an announcement was likely coming this morning and this morning it did come! In a massive buyout, Disney and Fox have agreed on a $52 billion deal for the Mouse House to take over the reigns on the entire film rights of 21st Century.

If you’re somehow unfamiliar to what this means (and honestly, if you’re reading this, I’m sure you are not,) Fox has had control over a number of Marvel comic book characters for a very long time, with the most obvious being the X-Men and Fantastic Four. With Disney’s acquisition, the potential to either spin currently successful and/or promising franchises like Deadpool, Legion, The New Mutants and The Gifted, into the current Marvel universe somehow, or to retool them along with other franchises that could possibly benefit from the awfully successful Marvel Studios touch.

There are some potential hold-ups in this deal as it would be the largest movie studio merger of all-time, and a reduction from what was already only 6 major studios. Large media mergers are always a subject of FCC approval, and considering the current ruling delivered today on net neutrality, there’s no telling how something like this might go. We also discuss some additional difficulties that Marvel itself may have regarding some of it’s new properties, on our latest episode (#74,) however, just like you, we’re already imagining who will end up fighting who when the eventual Secret Wars crossover happens! Are you excited about the merger? Tell us what you think!

When the world was introduced to the first trailer for the finale in the Wolverine trilogy many eyes were opened, interest peaked and the world was ready to see how edgy this closing chapter was going to be.

The first trailer gave us a more violent and gritty look but still much was not given away…until the newest trailer which has just been released.

This new trailer shows us more brutality but this time not just from the titular character but his counterpart in Laura Kinney a.k.a X-23 played by Dafne Keen.

Check out the trailer below and let us know your thoughts.
