It’s official. Disney now owns 21st Century Fox and its high-profile film franchises after concluding a deal worth $52.4 billion. It’s a monumental and game-changing piece of business that’s set to change the landscape of cinema and comic book movies forever. Heck, this means that Disney now owns 27% of the entire film industry. Subsequently, it means that Marvel holds the rights for the likes of the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool again.
With these characters back in Marvel’s playpen, anything is truly possible in the MCU now and we should start seeing it expanding and including all these new players in the not-too-distant future. That said, due to the nature and pace of the industry, some of them might take a little while to enter the fray, while others could be primed and ready to make their MCU debuts as soon as possible.
Either way, we’ve gone through the list of characters that have made the migration from Fox to Disney and looked at who has the best chance of fitting right in without causing any major issues.
