Default Re: Now that Disney has acquired Lucas films...

The best thing about this is that now ILM will be Marvel's in-house FX team. Better graphics, lower budgets. That counts as a total win.

Beyond that, while I wish that this meant that Disney was going to buy back the Fantastic Four and other Marvel properties, realistically I don't see that happening. Fox is run by some cutthroat *******s, no doubt about that, so the asking price is likely to be far more than the true value of the property. And there is no chance that they will ever let go of X-Men, no matter that they have failed to maximize the franchise's profit potential thus far. The X universe isn't something I really care that much about, but it's a crying shame that the FF can't come home again.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
