There's Still Hope For The X-MEN In The MCU: Disney And Comcast Could End Up Splitting Fox's Assets

Things aren't looking good for the Fantastic Four and X-Men arriving in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but a new report points to it being possible for Disney to acquire Fox's movie and television assets.

As we learned last night, Comcast has entered into a bidding war with Disney for Fox's assets. While that doesn't necessarily mean that the Disney/Fox merger is dead, it sounds like the studio will be cancelling its July 10th meeting with stockholders to discuss it and we're now forced to wait and see whether or not Disney will attempt to outbid their rivals and secure the company's core assets. 

There is still some hope, though, as one analyst believes that we could see the two corporations ultimately split Fox's assets with Disney getting the film and television studio and Comcast gaining Sky. 


"We would expect Disney to at least match Comcast by adding cash, and Comcast to appease [Rupert] Murdoch’s tax concerns by offering stock, and some back and forth raising the deal bid," B. Riley analyst Barton Crockett explains when asked about where things go next. "Barring a third entrant (Internet/tech is possible), we would see the most sensible outcome as splitting the baby, with Comcast getting Sky (which we see as its main goal) and Disney getting most of the rest."

Unfortunately, we're going to be stuck waiting and seeing for now but it's good to know there's still at least a chance the X-Men and Fantastic Four will find their way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe...
