James Murdoch tipped as potential Disney boss as Fox deal nears sign-off

The Walt Disney Company is giving serious thought to appointing James Murdoch as its next CEO, providing the Mouse House closes a deal for 21 Century Fox's entertainment arm.

The Fantastic Four was never done right by Fox, so it's likely Disney/Marvel will reboot the characters to make them more likeable.

According to CNBC, much of the deal remains the same.

The special apex court bench is hearing a total of 14 appeals filed against the high court judgment in four civil suits. Addressing a press conference in Ahmedabad, Amit Shah said: "The SC has started hearing the Ram Janma Bhoomi case".

According to CNBC, talks resumed shortly after word of the acquisition surfaced last month, and Disney and Fox are "getting closer to a deal".

Comcast is also thought to be in talks with Fox, but has not progressed as far as Disney, say sources.

This could potentially have huge repercussions throughout all of media, but it would be a really big deal for fans of comic book movies.

As a result, people have the opportunity of sending and receiving small and large amounts of cryptocurrencies wherever they are. Breakaways like Bitcoin Gold and Bitcoin Cash have proved hugely controversial due to their potential to dilute the brand.

There is some worry that if Disney does acquire Fox, everything that Fox had and now owns would be Disneyfied, meaning it would be watered down.

Sadly, the Marvel film universe was never complete with the X-Men and Fantastic Four owned by a rival film studio. Cats and dogs living together. Besides giving it a virtual stranglehold over local sports (the Fox RSNs now are home base for 44 MLB, NBA and National Hockey League franchises), the acquisition of the rights to an additional 5,500 live events per year would sweeten the pot for fans who may be thinking of signing up for ESPN's upcoming direct-to-consumer streaming service. If this actually happens, the entire movie and TV landscape could change.
