Also, I dunno if Marvel would merge X-Men in to the Avengersverse or if they would create a X-Menverse. Imagine how insane that would be to have 2 big universes going at the same time. If so, I'd like the X-Menverse to be Rated R while the Avengersverse is for the family.
The one thing I worry about is what happens to all of the good stuff that fox is doing. I remember when Disney bought Star Wars they killed Clone Wars so would a show like Legion be killed? What would happen to Deadpool?

To this, I say: GOOD RIDDANCE.
Nah, I'm actually sorry for the people who like this thing, but the series just lost me when the second season ended... It just... Gah, I can't even finish this sentence.

That's the crux of the matter. It's bad for monopolies to exist outside of fiction, me thinks.

Fun fact: Comcast is also trying to buy Fox and they own Universal.

Oh yeah, for sure. Fox has soooo many film contracts and business deals with major franchises at the moment.
- They have Blue Sky Studios (their animation team). They do the Ice Age and Rio movies, as well as a few other projects like the recent Peanuts movie.
- 20th Century Fox Animation Studios. An in-house team behind movies like Anastasia and The Prince of Egypt.
- Die Hard
- Planet of the Apes movies
- Basically all of James Cameron's other movies
And on top of this list, we will probably find a much slimmer year in terms of superhero movies. Marvel won't fill in the missing volume of Fox superhero movies. They might slightly bump up production, but not by much. This might be good in the eyes of some lol.
To take things even further, Disney wants to start its own streaming service to compete with Netflix and Hulu, right? Disney owns 30% of Hulu and Fox owns 30%. They will become the majority share holders if they acquire Fox.
So I completely agree. Disney is taking on a company almost as big as itself in terms of controlled franchises. Fox is BIG!

I was actually getting on board with the direction Fox and Co. were going with their newer iterations of superhero movies ala Deadpool, Logan, and New Mutants looks cool. If they get bought by Disney, man my fear that all of X-Men properties and Fantastic 4 stuff will become too samey to Marvel's current brood.
Plus, seems like Disney is becoming a monopoly in a way. But whatever, Merica.
