The Walt Disney Company To Acquire Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc., After Spinoff Of Certain Businesses, For $52.4 Billion In Stock


The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) and Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc. (“21st Century Fox” —NASDAQ: FOXA, FOX) today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement for Disney to acquire 21st Century Fox, including the Twentieth Century Fox Film and Television studios, along with cable and international TV businesses, for approximately $52.4 billion in stock (subject to adjustment).

Twenty-First Century Fox has owned the rights to comic book characters from Deadpool, Fantastic Four and X-Men, so we may soon see the Avengers with Deadpool, Fantastic Four or even X-Men!!

I wonder what will Disney do to get back Spiderman from Sony?
