The Disney-Fox deal has moved at a rapid pace since the two companies agreed to a deal last December. A brief bidding war slowed things down by a few weeks, but in just over seven months, the companies had approval from their shareholders and the Justice Department.
As the Disney-Fox deal moved along, however, two Fox-produced Marvel movies ground to a near halt. X-Men: Dark Phoenix and New Mutants, both due next year, are in need of reshoots that have been on hold for a number of months because stars from each film needed time to finish the final season of Game of Thrones.
The Disney-Fox deal being ahead of schedule coupled with the delays of Dark Phoenix and New Mutants has led to speculation that both films could be shelved. That will not happen, according to a new report from The Wall Street Journal. A source with knowledge of Disney’s plans says the studio will release any Fox movies that are complete, or in production by the time the merger is completed.
