Well we know his reasons are ridiculous (Disney put grills in muh Star Wars) but he is right about it being sad. I don't think anyone should celebration mega corporations.

The Marvel angle doesn't make this a good thing. It just probably makes it better than Comcast who is just awful altogether. That is probably the bottom line as it was going to be one of the other. So go with the lesser of two evils.

Exactly. The fact is, Fox was essentially on the auction block. It was going to go somewhere where there was a lot of cash. Pick your poison! Comcast reeaaaaly wanted SkyTV! Eff them right in the A. They don't deserve to be any bigger. They deserve to go the way of the Blockbuster... Video, that is.

Also, I should mention that I think Universal Studios has been pretty atrocious under Comcast. NBC, I don't really know much or care about. It's just obvious that they want to own everything on your TV. They certainly should never be able to acquire Fox AND still own NBC. Just saying.

You’ll only see hulk in an mcu movie if he’s in an avengers or costar/buddy in another like he did in Thor. So maybe in the next wolverine movie he (hulk) could help guide her.

no Disney will keep fox as is so those kinds of movies keep rolling. Those rated R movies can stay at FOX and HULU away from Disney. Smart move

Or Mirmax, movies like Armageddon and Pearl Harbor were under that wing. Not quite rated R but not really Disney family friendly flicks.

Dang, that would be sad. I’ll be honest I’d be ok if they closed or consolidated their animation studio into theirs...wait or am I thinking of Sony’s, either way neither have a memorable portfolio, even though I love Anastasia and Iron Giant.

It’s all just talk though, so hopefully they don’t. I know there will be wave of people losing their jobs that have overlap, sadly. But we all know it, whoever buys them, their new parent company will let go of many.

Good luck to all those people.

They should have a spin off studio that handles their harder PG-13 and Rated R films.

Val are you actually a fan of those films from Fox or you just riding the bash Disney train?

Who isn't a fan of Aliens and Predator?

Of course it was me. You read my post but have to pretend you didn't because you keep getting triggered by them.

But yeah most people think Alien and Predator haven't been good in 25+ years. Hardly a controversial opinion.

The newer stuff I see a lot of hate.
Predators,Prometheus and Alien Covenant are great and I am sure the next in the Alien prequels will be great if it releases(thx Disney)

I liked them as well, but quit acting like they are universally loved. They’re not.Oh wait.. I fell into your trap... I’m done.

Who cares if everyone likes them? They have enough fans that are concerned about the future of those franchises.
Not sure what your rebuttal is exactly as it just seems like your odd fanboy love for Disney brings out the no point a****** in you.

Disney should just keep Fox as their own separate thing and release the more mature content through them.

Also Predator has been crap since the first movie and I've never liked the Alien series. ;)

New Predator was dumb fun.
