    No. Sounds like the news networks will be spun off to a new company which will still be owned by Robert Murdoch.

I always thought it was funny the fiercely jingoistic Fox News was run by an Australian.

Federal Regulatory approval and shareholder approval are required.

Neither of those things is a fast process unless a LOT of money greases the wheels, and even then once all the dust settles we'd still have at least a year before any FF/X-men movies in the MCU were to occur.

Also let's remember the "grand success"/sarcasm of the Fantastic Four movies. Just because Marvel can put the FF back into their studio still doesn't automatically mean a quality FF movie will becoming.

Plus the X-men movies will now probably be rebooted...AGAIN, so soon after Days of Future past reset/revised the timeline to eliminate Xmen 3. Hugh Jackman is apparently finished with being Wolverine, good luck on the casting for his replacement.

Patrick Stewart back as Prof. X? Not likely.

A quality X-men movie about the Phoenix/Dark Phoenix Saga? Not likely unless they get smart and make it a TRILOGY

Also it is way too late to pencil in the FF and X-men into Avengers 3 and 4 so the "Dream team" movie of RDJ/Evans/hemsworth as IM/Cap/THOR teaming with FF and/or X-men isn't happening since their contracts tap out with Avengers 4 and at least 2 of the 3 want to move on.

Who could replace RDJ as Tony Stark? Or Evans as Capt America? Hemsworth's brother perhaps as the new THOR since they look similar and he may come cheaper then his brother in terms of money.

So unless they shell out a BOATLOAD of cash to all 3 of them, the "dream team" movie isn't going to we'd need a serious world wide threat like Galactus and his heralds.

So yeah.....I'm not celebrating this. This feels like too little too late as far as recovering the FF and X-men characters.
