What Disney owning Fox means and doesn’t mean for Nerds

Disney just bought Fox for a $52.4 Billion dollars which  opens the door to X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool. both the current versions and any MCU takes. This means things like Deadpool can both stay the way they are Disney can’t stop movies all ready in production but they can however reboot or rework for the MCU Deadpool 3/ Deadpool’s ending. Being that Deadpool is a money maker who stole MCU stuff to have in the first movie I’m guessing reworking would be in Disney’s best interest. Disney has also bought Han shooting first as Fox owned the 1977 version of Star Wars. Disney does not hold the rights to things like Gotham however and will must likely be requested to go back to the WB much like the Star Wars The Clone Wars.

Star Wars loses its 2nd director

Just after replacing Lord and Miller on Han Solo due to “creative differences”, Star Wars episode 9’s director, Colin Trevorrow, is being replaced for the same reason. This could be a troubling habit of the new Lucasfilm or because of restructuring the storyline as episode 9’s focus was on Leia (played by Carrie Fisher, who is deceased) therefore the vision had to change. Star Wars fans will never know episode 9’s true story at any rate.
