A JUSTICE LEAGUE Vs. X-MEN Movie? It Might Happen Sooner Than You Think...

The Rupert Murdoch owned 21st Century Fox tried and failed today to buy Time Warner for $80 billion. That would put them in control of everything from HBO to Warner Bros. and DC Comics, so perhaps a movie featuring Superman AND Wolverine is now a possibility, especially as they plan on trying again...

21st Century Fox were unsuccessful in their bid to purchase Time Warner for $80 billion today, meaning that for now, they won't be adding CNN, HBO, Warner Bros. and DC Comics to their portfolio of companies which currently includes Fox News, 20th Century Fox and many others. However, despite the fact that their offer of $85 a share was rejected, they do plan on trying again, and if successful...well, Hollywood could be about to change (for example, CNN would have to be sold due to competition laws). Now, taking over a company like Time Warner would obviously be a huge transition, and as with Disney's acquisition of Marvel and Lucasfilm - which are positively tiny in comparison - it doesn't mean that things would suddenly drastically change.

Let's assume for a moment that 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros. are merged into a new movie studio though. If 21st Century Fox held the rights to both a handful of Marvel characters and all of DC's, could they be featured in the same film? There could be a myriad of issues which stop this from ever happening, but if Disney were to buy DC Comics for example, is it so hard to believe that the comic universes would be combined and that we'd see the Avengers and Justice League in the same movie? Well, no! There could of course be other legal issues here which would stop this from happening, but stay tuned, as we may be bringing you news of a Justice League Vs. X-Men movie at some point in the distant future...just don't hold your breath! What do you think?

As hell bent as fox is on ass-raping the Marvel characters they have the movie rights to, i would honestly feel bad for DC fans if they bought DC.
sameoldthing - 7/16/2014, 3:47 PM
Nah,don't want X-Men / Marvel characters mixed with DCU.
Even in the comics it never really blends well. Keep em separate.
TheBeard - 7/16/2014, 3:48 PM
@COREYxYEROC that actually makes sense

$80 billion? Last I heard it was closer to $40 billion. Mr Murdoch must be keen.
NovaCorpsFan - 7/16/2014, 3:50 PM
That's never gonna happen. Waner knoow they can do fine without Fox.

Lol, no. It's extremely unlikely Fox buys WB, and if they do buy WB not much'll happen. Grasping at straws...
Comedian03 - 7/16/2014, 3:52 PM
Doubt it. They'd have to offer a bankrupting amount of money for Time Warner to even consider this offer. HBO, Warner, DC Comics, that's a shit tonne of revenue, revenue that is going to to be reliable for decades.
thunderforce - 7/16/2014, 3:54 PM
Disney should buy them lol .
billnye69 - 7/16/2014, 3:54 PM
I hope this doesn't happen let alone it won't happen.
TheAbaryMan369 - 7/16/2014, 3:55 PM
Yeah, I read this earlier. [frick]ing retards at Fox thinking they can buy WB LMAO.
FordEl - 7/16/2014, 3:55 PM
I would've died if this happened.
FordEl - 7/16/2014, 3:57 PM
But Fox trying to buy Warner Bros is pretty laughable and unlikely.
MrBlackjack - 7/16/2014, 3:58 PM
I wouldn't say it's a bad move on Fox's part, but it's definitely wishful thinking.

Mrcool210 - 7/16/2014, 3:59 PM
Never going to happen, but if it did, that would be really [frick]ing weird, i mean we get a wolverine/superman movie? i wouldn't be against it.
manofmidgard - 7/16/2014, 4:00 PM
lol. never gonna happen. but it would really suck to see the xmen with jla before the xmen with the avengers.

Its a possibility, some reports say Fox is gonna try again with bigger sum of money.
cmay13 - 7/16/2014, 4:05 PM
justice department would never allow this deal
NICKHART - 7/16/2014, 4:06 PM
yeahhhhh not gonna happen
RockBottom - 7/16/2014, 4:07 PM
No. Not gonna happen. You can't make it. Impossible.
BlackestKnight - 7/16/2014, 4:07 PM
As long as Marvel gets back the other properties go ahead
OpticBlastWins - 7/16/2014, 4:07 PM

WayneCEO1 - 7/16/2014, 4:07 PM

What was the point of this article exactly?

I tried to buy DC and Marvel today for $50 but they shot me down. Let's write an entire article about wild and crazy assumptions.

Slow news day I guess
