I TOLD YOU ALL MARVEL/DISNEY NEEDED TO BUY 20TH CENTURY FOX TO GET THE FANTASTIC FOUR.

I told you all back in JANUARY: “I’m starting to think that the only real solution here is to have Marvel and/or Disney invade Fox, conquer it, and annex outright the F4 and X-Men properties.”  And, do you know what happened?  I WAS RIGHT.  It’s looking like a done deal (Via Allahpundit): Marvel/Disney is going to acquire 20th Century Fox as soon as the lawyers finish doing… whatever it is that they do.

And after that, geez, Marvel/Disney gets the one thing that they needed to keep the MCU interesting for the next ten years: new superheroes and villains that aren’t derivative of the original ones. They’re not going to have to scrape the bottom of the barrel; in fact, they already have.  Marvel did the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Freaking-Man because the Fantastic Four and the X-Men had already been sold.  Funny how that worked out, huh?

    Unless they’re gonna delay “Infinity War” ..or have more cameos / easter-eggs on it than ornaments on a tree, the spectre of retcon looms *large*…

    So… 20th Century Fox added back to the Star Wars intro now?

    Just be prepared for lots of moaning about Disney having a monopoly on entertainment/childhoods/etc.

    The jokes being circulated about xenomorphs being Disney princesses amuses me, though.
