<font color="red">OFFICIAL:</font> The X-MEN & FANTASTIC FOUR Are Coming Home As Walt Disney Announces Acquisition Of 20th Century Fox

The Walt Disney Company has formally announced that they have officially acquired 21st Century Fox's film and TV assets, meaning the X-Men and Fantastic Four are coming home! Come take a look!

After years and years of clamoring, the X-Men and the Fantastic Four are finally coming home to Marvel Studios, so let the celebration begin! 

In an early morning announcement, The Walt Disney Company has officially announced that they have acquired 21st Century Fox's film and television studios, cable entertainment networks, and international TV businesses for $52.4 billion dollars. They've also confirmed that Bob Iger will remain as Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company through 2021. 

As for the big additions to their illustrious portfolio, Disney's announcement specifically namedrops the X-Men, Deadpool, and Fantastic Four franchises, meaning we should start to see Xavier's mutants and the Richards family make their way into Kevin Feige's Marvel Cinematic Universe sooner rather than later, barring any unforeseen setbacks. "The agreement also provides Disney with the opportunity to reunite the X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool with the Marvel family under one roof and create richer, more complex worlds of inter-related characters and stories that audiences have shown they love."

James Cameron's Avatar, The Simpsons, and Modern Family, amongst other things, will all also now join the House of Mouse's ever-expanding catalog.

While it remains unclear exactly how or when the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool will join the Avengers and Spider-Man, fans can still expect to see The New Mutants, Deadpool 2, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix meet their theatrical release dates in 2018. However, as for their other upcoming productions, which include at least Gambit, X-Force, and a potential Dark Phoenix sequel, the future has just gotten a whole lot murkier. Also, with Avengers 4 wrapping up within the next month or so, it's unlikely we see their introduction into the MCU until at least mid-to-late 2019, at the earliest, unless Feige has a major surprise in store for us. Regardless, all this uncertainty should make for a pretty interesting panel at San Diego Comic-Con next summer.
