They're Going Going, Back Back, To Marvel. The X-Men and Fantastic Four Are Coming Home To The MCU!
A few weeks ago, we told you about a potential deal between Walt Disney Co. and 21st Century Fox that would see the House of Mouse take control of Fox's movie and TV studio, which would completely re-unite all of the Marvel characters. I believe the phrase, "Fuck yeah!", was used. Well, after a few weeks of zen-like patience, it seems the deal is just about done.
According to another report from CNBC, Disney and Fox could close the deal pretty damn soon. So soon in fact, the ink should be very dry by Christmas. Unlike our collective jeans.
Holy shit! The Fantastic Four and X-Men are finally coming home to the Marvel Cinematic Universe aaaannnnnddd just in time for the next phase of Marvel movies, following Avengers 4. Fingers crossed they manage to sneak a few of these characters in at some point in Avengers 4. A lovely little post-credits scene featuring Marvel's first family or Wolverine's claws would do nicely.
