    Default The future of the X-Men on the big screen

    EDIT: *In honor of ChildOfTheAtom's fallen thread*

    With the AT&T/Time Warner merger being approved yesterday, we may see Comcast get a little braver with its bidding despite the judge's warning of the "temptation" to view the AT&T decision as "something more than a resolution of this specific case should be resisted by one and all!"

    http://money.cnn.com/2018/06/12/medi...ing/index.html

    I think going to bat with Disney will be a futile attempt but it's one I expect to happen simply because the Fox shareholders, which are set to vote in July against Murdoch's Disney deal are going to get greedy. They'll probably want to see if they can get the House of Mouse to up their offer before its over.

    That's just my $.02 but something else has been on my mind, if Comcast somehow gets Fox's assets other than Sky, would the X-Men revert back to Marvel and thus Disney? Is that something we are speculating on or is that a very clear yes or no? I would imagine none of us have access to the details of that deal made back in the 90's. I'd love to get an attorney's input and I might try and find one online that can speak to it.

    Folks, one thing is clear. No matter what the outcome is or which side you're on...Bryan Singer and Brett Ratner are done with the X-Men. No matter what happens, I'm looking forward to a MUCH better representation of the X-Men and a much needed reboot on-screen in the future.

    Let the war for the X-Men begin...Comcast isn't going down easy.

    UPDATE: Comcast got pwned, again. - https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/...t-century-fox/

    Honestly I'm disturbed that the Government hasn't been stepping in and shooting down these mega-mergers on anti-trust concerns. We're reaching the point where you have a very few major media conglomerates controlling the entire entertainment industry, and that's not good.
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    Why would Trump's government stop big businesses from getting bigger?

    "With U.S. District Judge Richard Leon shooting down the Trump Justice Department’s antitrust arguments over AT&T’s $85.4 billion acquisition of Time Warner, many expect an open season for the M&A sector — starting with the Fox assets."

    I don't follow politics if I can help it but wouldn't that mean Trump was against the merger?

    Trump was against the merger because Time Warner owns CNN, not because of his opposition to big business.

    Just like his war on the NFL has nothing to do with patriotism, and everything to do with the NFL barring him from team ownership.

    The agreement also provides Disney with the opportunity to reunite the X-Men 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 only makes sense for Marvel to be supervised by one entity. There shouldn't be two Marvels.

    This is excellent news, both for movies and comics. Marvel has a reason to care about X-Men again!!

    Give better depictions of the characters & I'm good.

    A better Storm, with a darker-skinned African actress.

    Sabretooth, who had 2 versions & neither were good, imo.

    Jackman was no Wolverine.

    Rogue could be better.

    Don't hero change Mystique or make her a reptile. Lol

    Not crazy about RyanPool.

    Etc.

    Adaptations will be different & the past films were a different take, which is cool. Now I would like to see a reboot with more similarity to the source & more characters getting exsposure.
