Ryan Reynolds Responds To Disney Possibly Buying Deadpool

Keep in mind that this is all in the very early stages, however, it was reported in the late hours of Monday night that 21st Century Fox were holding talks with Disney, with the goal being to sell most of the company to them.

It's a valid question, and one that had Marvel fans pondering a hypothetical scenario in which Disney had creative control over the Deadpool and other X-Men properties. Not everyone is happy about the possibility of this happening though.

According to sources at CNBC, Fox are aiming to focus their properties to just news and sports, which would free up all of their movie and TV properties for Disney to take over. He retweeted CNBC's original report and is anxious how the character will be handled by Disney. Now that they have both Deadpool and Logan under their belts, I'm sure they will be bringing more X-Men characters to the big screen as soon as possible.

After releasing many PG-13 X-Men movies, 20th Century Fox changed gears and chose to make more violent and edgy R rated movies. The gamble paid off because Deadpool and Logan managed to outgross numerous previously made X-Men movies. Next up, 20th Century Fox is going to release a horror-themed New Mutants film next year. If these properties moved to Disney, it's likely characters like Deadpool would effectively be neutered for a PG-13 rating and we wouldn't get as many unique/creative superhero flicks.

JFS Wealth Advisors LLC Sells 582 Shares of Apple Inc. (AAPL)
Seven equities research analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and forty-six have issued a buy rating to the stock. The firm has a market cap of $885,668.81, a P/E ratio of 18.75, a price-to-earnings-growth ratio of 1.40 and a beta of 1.23.

If the talks actually do lead to some kind of deal, it's hard to imagine Disney letting such a profitable film franchise wither away, or even to imagine the company rebooting the character.

That said, the character is known for breaking the fourth wall so they could make a joke about it.

Right now, though, it's not worth speculating any further, as we know just as much as Ryan Reynolds does about the situation. At least for a moment, the idea of seeing these characters becoming a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe went from completely impossible to somewhat viable.
