After a little over a month of news, rumors, and speculations regarding Disney acquiring Fox assets it looks as though a deal has been made.
Multiple outlets are reporting the studios have come to terms on a deal worth over $70 billion and are waiting for the contracts to get drafted and signed. We have a source at the studio who confirmed these reports.
According to Ain’t It Cool News Hugh Jackman is willing to return to Wolverinve for Avengers 4. Jackman has said in the past that “The Avengers would prove too much to turn down.” The outlet is also reporting that the Disney/Fox deal is complete.
