With the Disney buyout, Lucas can rest assured that the company he started will live on in perpetuity.
At any rate, let's move on. I still don't think FOX would ever agree to a deal to 'cross-pollinate' its X-Men universe with the MCU.
Edited to add:
Tony Stark, you said above that Mark Webb posted the motorcycle pic thing on his Twitter feed. Would you mind offering proof of that?
