Stan Lee Speaks Out On Disney's Acquisition Of Fox

Now that it's been made official, opinion has been fairly divided over Walt Disney's acquisition of 21st Century Fox's media assets. However, the Godfather of Marvel Comics, Stan Lee, couldn't be happier.

This week saw Disney acquire the vast majority of 21st Century Fox's assets including The X-Men, Deadpool, and The Fantastic Four. This deal has been met with a lot of excitement from comic book fans while others are a bit wary of the momentous deal. One Marvel creator who is absolutely delighted with these developments is the man involved with concieving these characters to begin with, Stan Lee. 

In an interview with Newsarama, Lee provided a statement expressing his excitement "A truly great piece of news! Now Characters such as The X-Men and The Fantastic Four can come home to the place where they belong!" Lee went on to talk about the importance of Marvel retaining all there characters under one creative banner "It's vitally important to have the Marvel characters under one roof. And now, as great as they were before, I can't wait to see the wonders that will unfold!"

Incidentally, Stan "The Man" also made a bold prediction that Disney would eventually acquire the rights for all the Marvel character and it looks like his claim has come to fruition, perhaps sooner than even he expected.
