Ryan Reynolds, James L. Brooks, James Gunn React To Disney-Fox Merger

This morning saw Disney acquiring nearly all of 21st Century Fox. With it, the House of Mouse brought in huge properties like the X-Men, Fantastic Four, The Simpsons, Deadpool, Avatar, and God knows how many other deeply embedded properties that we haven’t thought about.

Needless to say, when this acquisition became official, some folks in Hollywood had some things to say about it.

First up is Ryan Reynolds, who is best known for playing Deadpool. Ironically enough, the family friendly Disney will now own the not-so-family-friendly Deadpool brand, and Reynolds responded with a fitting tweet.

James L. Brooks, one of the producers of The Simpsons tweeted out a brand new drawing from Matt Groening, showing Homer choking out Mickey — in a loving way, of course!

The most genuine response likely comes from James Gunn — the filmmaker behind Guardians of the Galaxy, and the guy who is set to usher the Marvel Cinematic Universe into a more galaxy-oriented direction (can you say Galactus?). With that in mind, Gunn expressed his excitement.

Needless to say, Disney has acquired more than a few huge brands that will serve them incredibly well in their years to come. Which brand has you most excited for Disney to take on, and which response do you like best? Let us know your thoughts down below!
