“We are extremely proud of all that we have built at 21st Century Fox, and I firmly believe that this combination with Disney will unlock even more value for shareholders as the new Disney continues to set the pace in what is an exciting and dynamic industry,” – Rupert Murdoch, Executive Chairman of 21st Century Fox
Done deal. The Walt Disney Company has reached an agreement to acquire 21st Century Fox. Under the terms of the agreement, Disney will inherit $52.4 billion in company stock; Fox entities such as their film and television studios. Programming such as The Simpsons and the return of X-Men to the Marvel regime. So we might just see the X-Men and our favorite Marvel characters in a shared cinematic universe.
Times certainly are changing.
