Coming December 15th… Star Wars: The Last Jedi
It sounds as if the potential sale of 21st Century FOX properties to Disney might actually be a done deal. Reports indicate that Disney is buying much of the FOX IPs for somewhere in the 60 billion dollar area. These IPs would include the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four as well as other such treats as the Avatar movies, the original Star Wars trilogy, the Simpsons, the Alien franchise, FX Network, Fox’s share in Hulu among others. Reports indicate that an announcement could be coming as soon as next week or as late as Christmas, but it sounds like an announcement is coming. This could mean that Marvel Studios head Kevin Fiege will be able to see the dream of all Marvel characters together under one roof after years of seeing the rights spread everywhere. What this means for the FOX films such as Deadpool 2, The New Mutants, X-Men: Dark Phoenix is yet to be seen.
Speaking of X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the first official photos from the set were released to Entertainment Weekly and they look solid. Sophie Turner’s cover picture is a considerably stronger picture than usual for Entertainment Weekly.
