In a press release sent out this morning, 21st Century Fox announced;

“The Walt Disney Company’s (“Disney”) acquisition of 21CF will become effective at 12:02 a.m. Eastern Time tomorrow, March 20, 2019.”

While the deal is far reaching and complicated, we are a comic book and entertainment-based website so we’ll leave the business implications to the accountants and admit freely that we are only interested in the Fox assets related to Fantastic Four, X-Men and others.

The 20th Century Fox brand and Fox Searchlight brands will remain as well as FX, but there is no news yet on what Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios plan to do with X-Men or Fantastic Four and whether they will make their way into Phase 4 of the MCU or not.

We will continue to follow this story and others until we find out.
