The statement of the Disney-Fox merger despatched ripples during the leisure business past due ultimate yr. And whilst there is a lot that may be stated concerning the Space of Mouse’s $fifty two.four billion acquisition of twenty first Century Fox’s movie and tv belongings â basically, what does Disney’s large transfer imply for the way forward for leisure as an entire? â for a few it used to be exhausting to not really feel the tiniest bit excited the way forward for the Wonder Cinematic Universe.
As a result of if the Disney-Fox merger is going thru, that suggests Fox superhero homes just like the X-Males and Unbelievable 4 can struggle aspect via aspect with the Avengers at the similar display, no fan-edit required. However consistent with Wonder Studios head Kevin Feige, we are nonetheless “years away” from when you consider that coveted superhero workforce-up play out on display.
“The reality of the problem as I are aware of it is the deal needs to be found out,” Feige advised Vulture at a contemporary press junket for Black Panther. “There is been no communique. We are not eager about it. We are that specialize in the whole thing we have already introduced. If and while the deal if truth be told occurs, we’re going to begin to assume extra approximately it. Till then, we’ve so much to do.”
While pressed for more info, Feige stated, “We’ve got introduced the whole thing thru 2019, so none of the ones can be adjusted.” The untitled fourth Avengers flick will finish the Wonder Cinematic Universe’s ancient Segment three in Would possibly 2019, and the Untitled Spider-Guy: Homecoming sequel has already been introduced for later that yr.
Because the MCU inches nearer to Segment four, and because the actors themselves close to the top in their contracts, it is sensible that Wonder Studios might shake up its superhero roster in a submit-2019 global. Including a few mutants into the combination may unquestionably do the trick.
