X-men 100%. Fantastic Four rights are with some german company that Fox has a deal with to make movies. With Fox out of the way it would be easy to implement the same deal assuming it isnt part and parcel with the acquisitions already.

...but then, they are already in charge of Punisher, no? I know it's not the same (crudeness), but violence-wise?

IMO, the biggest parts of the deal are X-Men going to Marvel Studios and the publishing rights to all Star Wars movies before Episode VII to distribute in theaters, as well as home video rights.

Despite The Walt Disney Company's 2012purchase of Lucasfilm Ltd. and the release rights to all future Star Wars films, Fox still retains original distribution rights to Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which they co-produced and co-financed, in perpetuity in all media worldwide. Fox also retains theatrical, nontheatrical, and home video rights worldwide for the franchise's five subsequent films, which Lucasfilm produced and financed independently, through May 2020, at which time ownership will transfer to Disney. This complex relationship between Fox and Disney, particularly in regards to Fox's perpetual rights to Episode IV, creates an obstacle for any future boxed set comprising all nine films.

In my mind Fox’s X-Men ended with Logan and I was happy with that ending. I can’t wait to see what Disney does with X-Men.

Deadpool is $$$ and Kevin Feige (the Phil Spencer of Marvel) said he respects the movies success because it did what the fans wanted. It can be stand alone or cross over into Xmen and never interfere with the avengers if need be.

They should do a 1 man show of Cable vs Thanos.

(And Johnny Storm vs Captain America)

Logan actor Hugh Jackman would have kept playing Wolverine if X-Men crossed over with Avengers. Logan may be Hugh Jackman's final hurrah as Wolverine, but the actor has revealed the one thing that may have convinced him to keep on playing the popular X-Men character

Say goodbye to a lot of your Netflix content. They also now own a majority stake in Hulu now. Disney will charge a premium for their streaming service.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Hulu became Disney’s new streaming network with a new name or tier :’( which I’ll be ok with it, got Hulu, Netflix, Crunchyroll and Prime.

Now we need Disney to buyout a few anime studios, eastern and western. Maybe just Funimation to keep dubs on a steady flow of production.
