Disney-Fox Deal Approved: The X-Men & FF Are Coming Home - Report
  • In a meeting Friday morning, shareholders of 21st Century Fox and the Walt Disney Company approved Disney's $71.3 billion bid to tak eover a large portion of Fox's assets, including 20th Century Fox's movie and TV studio, according to Variety.

    The U.S. Department of Justice has already approved the transaction.

    In separate meetings, shareholders reportedly approved the transaction in sessions that lasted less than 15 minutes each.

    According to Variety, 21st Century Fox CFO John Nallen reportedly told shareholders the merger is expected to be completed in the first half of 2019.

    Here's how Disney described how the transaction would affect the Marvel Cinematic Universe when the proposed takeover was officially announced last year:

    “The agreement also provides Disney with the opportunity to reunite the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool with the Marvel family under one roof and create richer, more complex worlds of inter-related characters and stories that audiences have shown they love...”

It continues to scare me how so few owners control everything we see and hear in the media.

It was scary when it was just a merger of Time-Warner.
Then it was Time-Warner-CNN.
Then it was Time-Warner-CNN-AOL!

Now you have groups like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter who are suppressing the conservative side of the political dialogue. In really devious and secret ways. Like algorithms that weed out conservative opinion and news. And "shadow-banning" users so they're not officially banned, but no one can read material they post. Including the ONLY members of congress (U.S. Representatives Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan, Devin Nunes, and Matt Goetz, just the "freedom caucus" core of those holding the Meuller investigation to account for falsified evidence the investigate the president! Nothing the nation should discuss! )

To me, that's a larger issue than being able to make a movie uniting all the Marvel characters.
