Fingers crossed. :o

Too bad they couldn't get everything ironed out before Hugh Jackman retired as Wolverine. If it does happen, though, I hope they continue to make (R rated) Deadpool movies. :)

The word on the street is that Fox wants to finalize a deal by the end of the year (the timeline isn't mentioned in the link, but the Wall Street Journal (where it is mentioned) is a paid-subscription site so I won't link to that). Meaning, sometime in the next four weeks.

Also, apparently, the hoped-for price is FIFTY BILLION DOLLARS (Of course, they're not just talking about X-Men/Fantastic Four rights, but everything Fox has except for news & sports. That includes their stake in Hulu, Sky, movie studios/real estate holdings, etc. It would be a pretty big consolidation if it goes though).

We're getting closer, folks. It may even be announced next week!

Apparently Comcast/Universal has all but dropped out of the negotiations, and I haven't heard/seen anything recently about Sony/MGM. It really does sound like it might happen.

They're at the numbers-crunching stage. When the accountants get involved, it's all but official. :)

If this happens, the FF/Human Torch stuff would all be under one roof. We're one step closer to *me* getting a live action Invaders movie! (no one except me is talking about (or probably even hoping for) an Invaders movie; I just really really want to see one. Or three!)
