More Marvel Coming to Disney Streaming Service Thanks to Fox Acquisition?


According to Disney CEO Bob Iger, the Fox acquisition will create more opportunities for Marvel properties like the Fantastic Four and X-Men to come to Disney streaming service in late 2019.


During the Walt Disney Studios Third Quarter 2018 financial result conference call on Tuesday, Disney CEO Bob Iger teased the early original programming that is expected to appear on the upcoming Disney streaming service. As Iger pointed out, the Disney/Fox deal will give the company more storytelling opportunities for the streaming service —particularly with Marvel Comics-inspired programming.

Seeing as the Disney/Fox deal is expected to bring the Fantastic Four, X-Men, Deadpool, and other franchises under the Marvel Studios umbrella, fans will certainly take this as a sign of good news. While the nerd world assumed Marvel Studios had plans in place for these characters, the notion that they could become a reality will surely be something positive.

There are currently no plans for a Fantastic Four or X-Men movie reboot. However with the MCU getting increasingly more crowded, it’s possible that Disney could create new television series based on those properties instead.

Fox is currently producing two X-Men series on FX, Legion and The Gifted.

Disney-owned content will be leaving Netflix by the end of the year, leaving a big question mark hanging over the long-term futures of joint venture series like Daredevil and Luke Cage. Currently there are no plans to move those shows.

I've loved Disney as long as I can remember. As a former newspaper editor, web developer, and Disney comics freelancer, I'm able to combine that experience into writing about Disney online. I'm also the co-host of a Disney fan podcast called 'Pirates & Princesses.' Opinions mine.
