Default Re: Disney to Acquire 21st Century Fox

Both Marvel and Lucasfilm have been allowed to make their own creative decisions and be almost independent from Disney as a whole. Sure, everytime they do something that fans don't like, everyone blames Disney, but to date there has been no proven case of Disney actually pushing any serious demands on them. Not to mention, the content has been great. YMMV, but most of the best movies from Marvel came after Disney bought them and Star Wars has been doing great so far.
I think in this case there is legitimate cause for concern. X-Men isn't just some new property Disney is picking up. It's more likely than not going to be folded into an existing film universe and considering that Spider-Man Homecoming was very much an MCU style film we could see the same thing happen again. I'm not expecting a tragedy or anything, Homecoming is a perfectly fine movie, but I think we're running the risk of losing out on the possibility of more gambles like Logan or the first Deadpool.

You ever just... think about life?
