I don't see this ending in a healthy competition ... like at all !

Can't believe there were people supporting this kind of monopolistic transaction because of their little MCU. You know that it doesn't mean automatically better quality content for the franchises that they just bought,right ?

Only worry I have is the smaller FOX studios like Searchlight who might get lost in the transition

I have other concerns too, but this is one of them. 

It could mean great things for X-Men and Fantastic Four, and also means we may see that 4K "original" original trilogy release for Star Wars now.

I was also wondering how seemingly no one else is concerned about this.

Meh, there are so many different movies and companies. Each year new ones come and new ones go. The biggest news here is the whole Hulu acquisition I think..

Disney purchase Star Wars and Marvel to get the young male audience, with those 2 franchises they basically have toys sorted. But that 4bil and 2bil respectively and they've already no doubt made back their money. This deal is nothing compared to hose, was this deal just to get a non market leading streaming service? A service not even established outside the US? Yet if it means they limit their work to this service.



Hmm, pie.

The Biggest.

You try telling devout Catholics that they are the same faith as reformist LDS and see how that goes. :P

I remember having a couple of those guys show up at my doorstep.  Intriguing to say the lease.  They came back for a follow up when my wife was home.  She had a very defensive look on her face the whole time they were there.  No, we are not Catholic.

Yay they actually did it! I mean, the only thing I'm actually worried about is Deadpool, I hope Disney leave him alone and don't try to make him child friendly for future films...

Yes, it does.  You cannot get anything worst that that last Fant4stic.

They still need to get the Namor and Hulk distribution rights, along with the Spider-Man film rights, to have complete control of Marvel's films I believe.

So what ? Are you gonna satisfy yourself with only a cameo of a few minutes in their next Avengers movie which will result in absolutely nothing ? Or how about another average formulaic movie "à la" MCU.
