Can I get some of this money!?! Walt Disney just acquired the 21st Century Fox for $52.4 billion!
Disney is a POWERHOUSE!
This brings many intellectual property names which were owned by Fox under the banner of Disney...This includes X-Men, Fantastic Four & Deadpool, which could now all join the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
Fox Chairman Rupert Murdoch said:
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.
Furthermore, I’m convinced that this combination, under Bob Iger’s leadership, will be one of the greatest companies in the world.
I’m grateful and encouraged that Bob has agreed to stay on, and is committed to succeeding with a combined team that is second to none.
