I despise Rupert Murdoch. This would only give him more money and power, so I hope it doesn't happen. I don't know how it would affect WB's DC properties... but regardless, I don't want Murdoch to have any more reach than he already does.

Could the FF and X-Men be FOX's version of the Power Rangers, which Disney sold off after acquiring Marvel?

If Disney enters talks with FOX/WB to buy CNN, my guess is that Iger and company will at least mention the other properties FOX is holding that the Mouse wants to get their hands on. Post merger, Murdoch may be open to listening.
FOX does own the film production and distribution rights to X-Men and FF and as long as there is still a way to make a profit from them they will keep those until they expire. Just for the record, the agreement with FOX gives them the right to produce and distribute the two Marvel franchises at their expense in exchange for a licensing fee to Disney/Marvel. Now, I could see Disney/Marvel asking for the rights to the Marvel properties back in a deal with CNN, but I think that Time Warner (TWX) would just as well spin off the network as a separate public company, just like they did with Time Magazine, Time Warner Cable, and AOL.

Time Warner Inc. Rejects Unsolicited Proposal from Twenty-First Century Fox

Board Confident in Time Warner Strategy to Continue Delivering Stockholder Value
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Time Warner Inc. (NYSE:TWX) today confirmed that it rejected a proposal from Twenty-First Century Fox (NASDAQ:FOXA) to acquire all of the outstanding shares of the Company for a combination of 1.531 of Twenty-First Century Fox Class A non-voting common shares and $32.42 in cash per share (the " Proposal").
The Time Warner Board, after consultation with its financial and legal advisors, determined that it was not in the best interests of Time Warner or its stockholders to accept the Proposal or to pursue any discussions with Twenty-First Century Fox. The Board is confident that continuing to execute its strategic plan will create significantly more value for the Company and its stockholders and is superior to any proposal that Twenty-First Century Fox is in a position to offer.
In making its determination, the Time Warner Board considered, among other things, that:
The execution of Time Warner’s strategic plan will continue to drive significant and sustainable value for Time Warner stockholders;
The unique value of Time Warner’s industry-leading businesses including its portfolio of networks and its film studio and television production business is only going to increase;
There is significant risk and uncertainty as to the valuation of Twenty-First Century Fox’s non-voting stock and Twenty-First Century Fox’s ability to govern and manage a combination of the size and scale of Twenty-First Century Fox and Time Warner; and
There are considerable strategic, operational, and regulatory risks to executing a combination with Twenty-First Century Fox.
Time Warner’s Board also noted the consistent track record of Time Warner’s proven management team in achieving superior returns as well as completing a series of transactions to unlock value in related businesses, including the separation of AOL, Time Warner Cable, and Time Inc. Under its strategic plan, Time Warner has delivered a total shareholder return of more than 150% since 2008, almost tripling the return of the S&P 500 over the same period, as management has pursued a disciplined approach to position the Company as a global leader in media and entertainment while managing its operations and capital structure to maximize shareholder returns.
Citigroup Global Markets Inc. is acting as financial advisor to Time Warner. Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP is acting as legal advisor to Time Warner.
ABOUT TIME WARNER INC.
Time Warner Inc., a global leader in media and entertainment with businesses in television networks and film and TV entertainment, uses its industry-leading operating scale and brands to create, package and deliver high-quality content worldwide on a multi-platform basis.

If Murdoch pursues this, it would be deeply unfortunate for DC Comics, I suspect. I would weep.

I wouldn't offer any more than what FOX offered to purchase TWX. Both companies have very similar balance sheets. In fact, I would offer slightly less.

They haven't given up yet:

This could also trigger sale of their 39% stake in British BSkyB as well.

Time Warner sending a clear message: http://www.deadline.com/2014/07/time...fense-murdoch/

Quote:
Time Warner Changes By-Laws To Help Block A Hostile Takeover

This is the first concrete sign that Time Warner is determined to fight Fox CEO Rupert Murdoch if he decides to do an end run around the board in an effort to acquire the company. Directors adopted an amendment to TW’s by-laws, which took effect immediately, that makes it harder for a small group of shareholders to call a Business Leaders Gather For B20 Summit In Sydneyspecial meeting, Time Warner says in an SEC filing. Previously investors holding at least 15% of the total votes could demand a meeting. The change limits that right to “the Chief Executive Officer or a majority of the entire Board.” The fear was that Murdoch — or anyone — could have tried to stampede short-term investors into accepting a deal even if the board concluded that it would not serve their long-term interests.

I highly doubt they would merge the two studios. They would most likely just let Fox and WB operate separately with no crossover action, unless of course Murdoch is a fan boy and wants something like a crossover to happen on the big screen.
