Which 20th Century Fox Franchise Should Disney Prioritize?

Fox News and Fox Business are now part of the newly created Fox Corporation

The deal is worth a reported $71.3 billion with assets such as Fox film and TV studios, National Geographic, FX Networks, a number of worldwide channels, and a third of Hulu.

They also get stock in the new Fox, led by Murdoch's older son Lachlan.

"The spinoff comes amid high anxiety on the Fox lot in Los Angeles because of the anticipation that more than 3,000 jobs will eventually be eliminated as part of Disney's consolidation of the remaining Fox assets, two people familiar with the matter said". This merger is nothing short of historic, as it's one of the biggest deals the industry has ever seen and will see Disney take control of all of Fox's movie and TV assets.

If the deal has occurred as these details suggest, there is theoretically no reason why The Simpsons can't continue to be shown on Fox; not every company broadcasts its own programming on its own networks.

The Disney-Fox deal has now officially been completed and is due to take effect at 12.02am Eastern Time on Wednesday, with the Mouse House shelling out $71.3bn (£54.3bn) to complete the takeover.

With the current Avengers franchise drawing to a close in next month's Endgame and Disney's new streaming platform gearing up for launch later this year, it looks like a new era of Marvel superheroes is upon us. As for New Mutants, it is now being mulled over according to the report, with it possibly avoiding theaters at all and just being released on Disney+, Disney's upcoming streaming service. Fox Corporation was established in its place. It is though Dark Phoenix will be released in June, but New Mutants may get a streaming service release.

Did you know we have a YouTube Channel?

Keep in mind Disney already owned most of the rest of Marvel superhero characters, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and its own classic cartoon characters.

In movies, Disney and Fox combined to win 11 awards - almost half of those presented - at the Oscars in February, including honors for "Black Panther", 20th Century Fox's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and Fox Searchlight's "The Favourite". The deal will also give Disney 60% ownership of Hulu.
