Fans with visions of X-Men and the Fantastic Four playing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe saw their dreams dashed almost as quickly as they had been inspired earlier this week. Reports that Disney had spoken with 21st Century Fox about acquiring most of the company were quickly followed by reports that the talks were no longer active. That is still the case, but it doesn’t mean Disney and Fox have given up.
David Faber of CNBC, who originally broke the story of this potential deal on Monday, reported earlier today that both sides are still open to the idea of finishing what they started. As Faber puts it, “Pencils aren’t down.” He continued, “”It does appear at the very least that they have not abandoned the idea of that combination.”
