TLDR
Deal will be officially announced as soon as this week
Comcast is no longer in the picture
Deal would give Disney control over Fox's tv and movie studio, the majority of the cable networks (excluding Fox News and Sports), National Geographic and international assets
The murdochs would control 5% of Disney and still own the Broadcast networks as well as Fox News and Fox Sports

Disney will have a monopoly and there is nothing we can do to stop it.

So now Disney comes even closer to being a monopoly. Alien, Predator, X-Men, Avatar, McFarlane cartoons, X-Men, Simpsons, Futurama, alll Fox tv shows, and whatever else Fox owns will be Disney now. What else is there left that could compete? WB? Everything else is a small fry and will likely be swallowed by Disney next.

The average person is only thinking about the small, short-term implications like having the X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool in the MCU.

I wonder how mainstream culture will look when Disney dies off and all their subsidiaries get lost or sold off.

Of course its getting government subsidies up the but.

Sony Pictures or Universal. They are in a pretty bad shape. Sony has been run into the ground by idiots and ideologues. Universal had issues for quite a while. They are in especially bad situation now that new Mummy bombed and likely killed their plans of making a shared universe out of their monster movies. All they had to do is star Brendan.

WB might try to buy them or at least invest in it to prevent Disney taking over even more more of the industry. Especially Universal, since WB has more ties to them. Sony might be Disney's next target.

Things I'm going to take away from this:
1. Netflix Original Futurama Reboot Series a given. Matt Groening confirmed to Ghost Write it.

2. With Seth's general disinterest with Family Guy, we might finally get a new season that's… Tolerable. Probably.

3. Nintendo needs to get its ass into gear and start buying out other companies in Japan, otherwise they'll never be able to compete with Sony, Disney, and Microsoft during the Cyberpunk Age of City-Nation-Business conglomerates ruling over us while government becomes a mere formality.

Josiah Miller

I'm either banking on the Native Americans after they complete their World-altering Shamanic Ritual, or the Dragons once they awaken from their ancient slumber. Or maybe the Replicants.

Henry Murphy

Netflix Original Futurama Reboot Series a given
Except Disney are pulling out of Netflix
Nintendo needs to get its ass into gear and start buying out other companies in Japan
Except Nintendo have no desire to become a multimedia conglomerate. In addition every part of Sony's business other than the Vidya part is doing fucking awful so chances are they will sell those off at some point down the line

Everything you said was complete bullshit

Nicholas Perry

Matt Groening is already doing a Netflix Original too

I believe that was already a given when I said I support Dragons or Native Americans as the next Secret Jew Society.
Still, we're dangerously close to a Cyberpunk future. Hell, even VR is slowly worming its way forward.

That will be phase 4 of the MCU:
- X-Men movies made by Disney
- Fantastic 4 movie made by Disney
- Silver Surfer
- Deadpool / Spider-Man
- Avengers vs X-Men: House of M
- Avengers (with the X-Men and the Guardians of the Galaxy) against Galactus

Xmen
Honestly, it doesn't sound like that would work out well. Its already a problem with discrimination in the comics since they get feared yet the other heroes are well liked. That and I dunno how the Inhumans are going to react to the X men.

Ian Ramirez

Charles Adams

Marvel call that series of movies as phases, sorry if that triggered you

Of course it won't, (considering the two Quicksilvers) And the Inhumans will be introduced into the fantastic 4

Gavin Kelly

The only thing you should care about it that entertainment will be lazier and messier. Creativity will be dead, just rehashing franchises.

I'm a foreigner, isn't that a case for an anti-trust suit because Disney is on track to owning fucking everything?

Josiah Martinez

It should be, but because it's Disney most will turn a blind eye.

I don't know, man. This shit can't keep going on forever.

If we can get the idea that "Disney is not a divine force of good because it made your childhood entertainment" into normalfags then maybe we would have a chance of stopping them.

<So now Disney comes even closer to being a monopoly
Disney is a fucking monopoly now, more so than it has ever been. I wonder what the fuck they plan on doing with the Simpsons and McFarlane toons. They they getting shitcanned or just milked in a new terrifying way?
Disney is great at sucking politician dick.

Christian Thomas

It doesn't work because Dinsney doesn't actually come close to owning "everything in hollywood," but what they do own are lots of very culturally significant IPs.

Benjamin Jones

You're forgetting what makes the real money for these shows. Moichandisin. The Simpsons sells like ten times more for licensing fees than for its own show.

God no, Disney's tv people are abject filth. Remember when they decided making Miss Piggy aborting her kid with Kermit a plot point in that Muppet show they did?

Someone mentioning Predator and Alien. Wasn't Alien and Predator part of the DC universe? or at least a big property of Warner bros.

How long until Disney buys DC and the big two will have the same universe?

Ayden Edwards

They never will, They'll probably just do more JLA Avengers All Star events, because there'll be less Lawyer talk.

Since it's such an obvious joke, more so than even Trump?

Benjamin Phillips
Benjamin Phillips

Why would they retool it?
You don't understand how Disney does business. They leave everything as it is for the immediate future. Most people keep their jobs. It's only a couple years in that they start leaning on their acquisitions. In which case, Disney is less likely to toy with The Orville, seeing as it's kicking STD's ass. What they're likely to do is milk it long past the point that MacFarlane has any interest in still doing it.

Adam Diaz
Adam Diaz

I wonder what the fuck they plan on doing with the Simpsons and McFarlane toons.
Probably leave them be for now. However, they might pull them from Adult Swim, so to fuck with Warner. This might either cripple Adult Swim or force it to create something new.

What does that mean for King of the Hill revival?

World Peace was shit.

Ryder Johnson
Ryder Johnson

Did they get Bob's Burgers in this deal? If not, AS would likely roll that out instead. Honestly, if AS is forced to create something new to replace family guy, it would likely be cheap liveaction garbage or something on the level those various fox shows that get canned after a season.
<What does that mean for King of the Hill revival?
Hopefully dead.

Nice utilization of a hyper-cynical social media platform to cope with your own personal unhappiness by using it to vent about things you have no control over to hide the fact that you're unwilling to go through the effort to improve your own life, both of you.

No, I'm FagFagging. I'm deliberately matching the shitty behavior of people in the thread in order to propagate it further, eventually sending the thread into a spiral of shitposting and faggotry, because I'm stressed about events in my life I'm not willing to go through the effort to fix.

Isaiah Adams

So you're backseat modding?

Brayden Lee

All you.

Grayson Perry

Exactly! I'm only as pathetic as the worst person in the thread, I'm a mirror of their shittiness. The fact that I was hired to do this by a panel of Holla Forumsmrades tired of the incessant political discussion within every thread in order to associate political discussion with Shitposting is also notable.
OR
I'm just saying this in order to convince myself it's actually true because it would actually give me a modicum of control and an ego boost in my life. Who knows?

Kevin Thomas

Or you're just a shitposter.

Michael Carter

That's a given, but am I shitposting ironically? Satirically? Jingoistically? Religiously? That's the real question.

Joshua Flores

Ah, this guy again. Talk about trying too hard.

Cameron Howard

Or maybe I simply understand that a stupid comment with the tones of someone who thinks they're being clever is one of the more effective ways to derail a thread because the image board mentality refuses to let you NOT reply to my bullshit, even if I point it out.
And maybe, just maybe, there really is a JewTube embedded in the code of YouTube, and one of the top-grossing comedy channels is me reading aloud the insane anti-semitic theories that the goyim on the Chans spout, and laughing at how wrong, and how right, you are.

It's official. Disney Bought Fox.

Apparently X-Men, F4 will join Marvel Cinematic Universe.

[as] might go back to their roots and get rights to something cheap but well-liked. Duckman, Dan vs., and Dilbert are all decent candidates.

Elijah Barnes

Apparently X-Men, F4 will join Marvel Cinematic Universe.

I wonder how are they going to do it without a massive retcon and restart.

Jaxson Miller
Jaxson Miller

So Spider-Man was a different story?

Luke Smith
Luke Smith

Spider-Man is Sony. By buying FOX, they regained rights to X-Men and Fantastic Four properties.
Spider-Man is still with Sony, Hulk is murky because Marvel are allowed to use him, but to make a film with Hulk in the title they need to share profits with Universal (hence why they aren't making Hulk films).
I believe Namor is in a similar position to Hulk, but not entirely sure.
In summary, Marvel basically have cinematic/TV rights to all non-Spidey characters.

Zachary Watson

Lincoln Diaz

Spiderman doesn't actually fuck over all the lore stablished in the cinematic universe for the last… 10 years? I don't remember when Iron Man came out.

Jonathan Baker
Jonathan Baker

9 years, you were close.
To be fair, X-Men fucks over Marvel lore by default because they're somehow oppressed minorities everyone hates but they're totally fine with every other superpowered guy as long as they aren't a DANG DIRTY MUTIE (except Spidey who kind of gets the short end of the stick).
I like X-Men as much as the next guy, but it's really difficult to make them work in conjunction with the rest of the Marvel universe.

Thomas Lee
Thomas Lee

Well, I guess the fear is having some random child be a nuke. For all the shitty behavior Marvel citizens have, being wary of mutants is the only slightly understandable.

Christopher Miller
Christopher Miller

Being wary of mutants isn't the issue, that's perfectly fine, it's that they're not at all wary as long as someone says "oh don't worry, I can destroy planets, but I'm not a mutant".
It's impossible to justify why Human Torch, who is brash and irresponsible and has incredibly destructive potential gets raised to the skies and is beloved everywhere while Cyclops who can basically punch people from a distance gets treated like a leper.
I think fearing mutants is logical, for sure, but it's illogical when forced into the Marvel unvierse as a whole.

Colton Scott
Colton Scott

But user, everyone hates heroes in the Marvel universe. The only ones who get away are Iron man because he was one of the originals, and he is still hated for the shitty Civil War, Captain America because he is… well, Captain America, and the Fantastic Four because they are, by all means, government funded and promoted heroes.

Julian Davis
Julian Davis

I don't recall Thor, Dr. Strange, Daredevil, Carol Danvers or the vast majority of Avengers gigantic roster being hated by the public. Sure, many of them have instances where they run into trouble, but I'd say the only characters generally hated by the public in Marvel are X-Men, Spidey (because of #FakeNews), The Punisher and sometimes Hulk.

Hudson Nguyen
Hudson Nguyen

Thor
Oh yeah, I forgot Thor, but he is a god.

Dr. Strange
Nobody knows him enouth and he tries to be on low profile.

Daredevil
But user, Daredevil IS hater like Spiderman, or at least in some many issues.

Carol Danvers
Oh… you are talking about SJW Marvel where noone is human nor behaves like a human being.

or the vast majority of Avengers gigantic roster being hated by the public.
There was an Avengers/JLA crossover where the Avengers got into the DC universe and was susprised their citizens loved their heroes, even believing they were brainwashed.

Ryan Murphy
Ryan Murphy

Carol Danvers
current year
Its funny because even in the comics they can't decide if she's loved or hated. In Champions it's stated that all adult heroes are hated for Civil War 2 yet in Carol's book she's beloved by landwhales that go all "Yass queen slay".

Blake Garcia

X-Men should have their own universe. M-Day or whatever that even was called, should just result in a mirror X-Universe getting created and all X-Men getting transferred there from the Earth 616 and stay there for good.
