Right now, news regarding Disney acquiring 21st Century Fox is reverberating throughout the industry. In one fell swoop, the House of Mouse has made bold steps to acquiring a huge chunk of the film industry, and it’s a move that will have effects for years to come.
We’ve heard countless industry folks give their two cents and reactions to this news, but one man has yet to say anything, until now. Speaking with Newsarama, Stan Lee — the creator of countless superhero icons — gave his own reaction to the news of Disney acquiring Fox.
Here’s what he had to say:
“A truly great piece of news! Now characters such as the X-Men and the Fantastic Four can come home to the place where they belong. It’s vitally important to have the Marvel characters under one roof. And now, as great as they were before, I can’t wait to see the wonders that will unfold!”
Of course, for a man like Lee, an acquisition like this is the stuff of dreams. After seeing his creations separated for as long as he has, seeing them be able to join together in one mondo universe would be a sight to see.
The current status of the Fox Marvel properties is unknown. While Disney CEO Bob Iger did state outright earlier that they would be merged into the MCU, Kevin Feige ultimately has the say as to whether or not it’s worth doing right away.
