Today is Disney’s 3rd Quarter earnings, and on their normal call to discuss those earnings; Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that all of the Fox Marvel properties are officially home and under Marvel Studios.
Most people expected this, but Bob Iger confirmed on the call that X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool are all now part of Marvel Studios and under the control of Kevin Feige. There have been some people who didn’t want Deadpool to be part of Marvel Studios, and some who even tried to start rumors that the character wouldn’t be; but today Bob Iger put those false rumors to rest.
Meanwhile, Disney’s third quarter earnings were negatively affected by the performance of Dark Phoenix. The Fox movie studio lost $130 partially due to that movie and costs involved with marketing. That means it might be quite a while before the X-Men franchise is rebooted, the taste of that movie will need to dissipate a bit.
