'Kingsman' Creator Mark Millar Weighs In On Disney-Fox Deal

What Disney buying 21st Century Fox may mean for your Hulu habit

Investor sentiment stumbled over potential roadblocks to the Republicans' tax overhaul.

Disney's proposal to buy 21st Century Fox - which in stock and debt is valued at around $66 billion - includes the majority of most of 21st Century Fox's entertainment assets, including its film and television studios, like FX Productions, Fox Searchlight and Twentieth Century Fox Television.

As I'm sure you heard, Disney bought 20th Century Fox for $52 billion today.

The deal is likely to be closely scrutinised by American watchdogs including the Federal Communications Commission, the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Justice's competition division.

That's because Fox News wasn't part of the deal. It's an often-remarked trait of Murdoch's: His love for chasing stories and consulting with editors about the next bombshell. It's an escalating cycle of consolidation.

As part of this announcement, Bob Iger has extended his contract with Disney as chairman and CEO through 2021. Lionsgate and CBS are also frequent sources of speculation. The studio has generally ranked either third or fourth in market share. Disney may just want the syndication rights and will stay happy with Simpsons World.

Fox isn't necessarily disappearing.

Fox's The New Mutants is opening April 13, 2018, and director Josh Boone has a trilogy planned. True, it didn't pan out-and, to his credit, that was the end of it. Well, sort of. "There was a problem with our chief executive, over the year, isolated incidents". Iger said, "To the consumer, not only will they be getting more great content, high-quality content, but they'll be getting it in ways that they demand".

This deal would strengthen Disney's plans to create its own streaming service, potentially making it an even bigger threat to Netflix.

When busted at the rot within their organizations, other media executives have struck apologetic tones equal to the horror of sexual harassment.

This 2005 crossover from writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Olivier Coipel is another iconic clash between the X-Men and the Avengers.

The inbound characters, whether in stand-alone movies or fancy crossovers, are bound to give an injection of freshness to the MCU and the comic book movie genre in general, but fans should know this wish fulfillment is a double-edged sword.

Compare that to "nonsense".

Describing the deal as "Good for Disney, bad for Fox", Millar stated that there was "zero upside" to deal as he believed risky projects such Deadpool will never be developed at Disney. Fox's specialty label, Fox Searchlight, is among the industry's art-house leaders. When the alien conqueror Annihilus invades the Marvel Universe with a seemingly unstoppable army of bug warriors, it forces a ragtag group of unlikely teammates - from Star-Lord and Gamora to Nova and the Silver Surfer - to do what they can to stop the invasion before it reaches Earth.

Iger voiced his support for maintaining those businesses.

Tom Holland scene in the movie Spider-Man, Homecoming. "NBC is in deep trouble". Netflix has said it will spend up to $8 billion on original content next year.

Facebook's bid for the cricket was a "warning shot" that the digital giant was "coming at sport", Murdoch said in an interview on Fox Business Network on Thursday. "Less product just means less revenue in their minds". It also needs to includes lots of jokes about Josh Brolin being both Thanos and Cable.

Hollywood may have shrunk into not the Big Five, but the Big One.
