The Disney/Fox merger is almost complete. According to a media release by Disney on Tuesday morning, the merger should be complete by March 20th. The deadline for Fox shareholders to elect the form of consideration they like to receive is at 5 pm ET.
After everything is done the transaction will be complete by Wednesday, March 20th.
This monumental deal will bring great changes to the entertainment industry. For Marvel Studios, in particular, Kevin Feige will get the green light to start working on integrating the X-Men and the Fantastic 4 into the MCU.
It was also reported that when the studio starts to remake the X-Men and Fantastic 4 movies again they will probably have to recast every cast member from the current franchise.
Deadpool is also a Fox-owned franchise however it seems that Ryan Reynolds may continue to helm the iconic character.
When Once Upon a Deadpool was released last year around Christmas it’s was rated PG13. Many people were speculating that the movie’s re-release as a PG-13 film was a test to see if Deadpool would still be as good with less blood, gore, and obscene profanity.
With Avengers: Endgame coming out late in April fans are hoping to see a Fox/Marvel character appear in the Avengers: Endgame post-credit scene, however, this is most likely not going to happen. (It would be very cool if it did)
Fox is also still releasing Dark Phoenix, their last X-Men movie in June, and it seems that New Mutants is still supposed to be released as well.
