Deadpool and the X-Men are about to join the MCU?

From CNBC:
  • Talks have progressed and a deal could be announced as early as next week, sources tell CNBC.
  • The enterprise value of the Fox assets in the deal is seen as more than $60 billion.
  • Fox would sell movie and television production assets and keep its news, sports and broadcast network.

I'd rather see Deadpool 2 spoofing X-Men. I don't know if X-Men is a good fit to be a part of the MCU universe.

I'd assume they'll keep them mostly separate from the usual MCU crew for a while and slowly build up until some serious shit happens (ala GOTG)

Hmmm. I guess they could do that, but they should almost start over. A long time for now. Logan finished Wolverines story really well. And with Bryan Singer having disturbing rumors about him sodomizing young boy assistants, I wonder if they should reboot X-Men.

Maybe after MCU is ended.


MCU is ending in 2020 right?

I wonder if Fox is also attempting to sell off the remainder in piecemeal fashion as well. Iím not sure if traditional news is a moneymaker these days but I suppose Fox News has its particular audience.

This is the biggest problem.

There is no way Disney would have green lit an R-rated foul mouthed Deadpool or an R-rated super violent Logan. What about the upcoming horror themed New Mutants? Definitely don't want this to effect future planned movies like X-Force or the Logan follow up with Dafne Keen by James Mangold.

It is confusing indeed:

A billion is a number with two distinct definitions:
1,000,000,000, i.e. one thousand million, or 109 (ten to the ninth power), as defined on the short scale. This is now generally the meaning in both British and American English.

1,000,000,000,000, i.e. one million million, or 1012 (ten to the twelfth power), as defined on the long scale. This is one thousand times larger than the short scale billion, and equivalent to the short scale trillion.
American English always uses the short scale definition but British English has employed both versions. Historically, the United Kingdom used the long scale billion but since 1974 official UK statistics have used the short scale. Since the 1950s the short scale has been increasingly used in technical writing and journalism, although the long scale definition still enjoys common usage.

If X-Men (it wont) did appear in MCU, I wonder how they would address the whole issue of mutant oppression given... the Avengers. Oh, and who they would cast as Human Torch if FF joined.

Does this mean well finally get to see the Dr Doom that we deserve Finally!!

Honestly I would love to see the X-Men and FF and Avengers all in the shared Universe. They could always pull of some pocket universe stuff if they decide to keep them separate and only have them team share the screen when it is convenient I guess. I just want to have Disney redo what the Xmen and especially what the FF have become and give them the casting and budget that they deserve (not all Casting are bad but most of them could be better I think) . I'm actually hyped and glad that this can happen in my lifetime lol.

Bring it on!!

Also, when they reboot the MCU and put x-men in i hope they do a proper Civil War next time along with a proper Old Man Logan. I'm glad Disney/Marvel is getting the X-men universe back. If you don't like Comic Book films don't watch them, i have been waiting my whole life to see the avengers and the x-men together on screen and to see the full universe together in film.

I'm fucking excited.
