  • Apparently a Mouse can eat a Fox! (aka Disney/Fox buyout)

    So how long until the X-Men & Deadpool join the MCU? Do we see the Fantastic Four actually get a GOOD movie for once? Enquiring minds want to know.

    I'm mostly happy. For one, the thought of Disney utilizing X-Men and Fantastic Four properties has me excited. I'm also hopeful that with the firing of Axel Alonso, Marvel Comics can go back to pumping out good stories again--hopefully with the FF and X-Men at the forefront, and not the Inhumans.

    Coindedences do happen.

    Yeah, I don't mind the government looking into this. Of course, since unlike the AT&T Time Warner merger, Trump already called Rupert Murdoch to congratulate him on the Fox/Disney merger, I don't think the government is going to pursue this merger too hard.

    Welp. It's happening. The various anti-trust committees want to launch an investigation into the Disney-Fox merger.

    Thorgi has some thoughts. I particularly like his comparison between the implications of this deal vs the implications of net neutrality being repealed. One is much more cyberpunk monopoly than the other.

If Disney were to buy Amazon, then I might have some concerns, but this gets a whole lot of properties I like out of the hands of Rupert Murdoch, particularly National Geographic. So I'm kinda cool with it. Its now a really big and powerful company, more so than in the past, but its still not a monopoly by any stretch and frankly, they've been doing good work.
    Episode 7 was awful, but Lucas did worse with Episode 2. Rogue One, though, was very well done and I think Disney might have some high potential in developing Marvel's brands. They already showed us that they know how to kill characters when it's due, so let's not believe they're only going to make carebear movies.

    Even more important (to me, at least XD): now Firefly is owned by Disney! God knows what kind of asshole would leave such a franchise on the shelves for over ten years, but if Disney specifically bought it then it means they must have some plan to cash it out. I can't WAIT to see Malcom Reynolds again, I've been waiting for so long. ç_ç

    Frankly, I'd really like it if they used Bob Chipman's pitch for the inevitable Fantastic Four movie.

    The Inhumans TV series was... disappointing, but I DO think Marvel's efforts to promote some of their lesser-known characters is a good thing. DC's biggest weakness has always been a lack of support for for anyone outside of the "Trinity".

    Oh don't be silly there's more to cyberpunk then *just* the augmentations!

    ...seriously. We already live in a world where computers and the internet has become an ubiquitous part of our everyday life. Work on robotics and drones are progressing at a rapid pace. And the aforementioned growth in power of corporations that...seemingly no one can stop.

    At this point cybernetic augmentations would just be the cherry on top of this chrome-plate ice cream.

    But now that the xmen are back to disney we can put the Inhumans where they belong......in a dumpster fire (except lockjaw)

    This is very important.

    I want my cyber six-pack. Maybe a cyber leg(or two). And finally, the X-Men can take back the throne they never rightfully lost.

    Adios, Inhumans.

    Yes to the first (this has been explicitly mentioned in several news articles), maybe to the second. Stranger things have happened.
