The months ahead were slated to be big ones for 20th Century Fox’s X-Men universe, with three different mutant-centric films on the docket. But in a surprise move, the studio has decided to switch up the timetable on when we should expect to see a certain merc with the mouth and his mutant pals.

Marvel buying back the film rights to the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool was once only the stuff of nerd dreams, but now that those dreams have become reality, we should really consider just what this reunion might entail. We may very well see an Avengers vs. X-Men film one day, but that might not be a good thing.

After the surprising return of The X-Files to Fox for a (very uneven) season 10 in 2016, Chris Carter and company have decided to give it another go once more in season 11, which debuted last night. The premiere, “My Struggle III,” had some decidedly huge shake-ups.
This week, Gillian Anderson re-iterated a statement she’d already made clear: X-Files’ new season would be her final outing as Dana Scully.

X-Men fans might be happy about the news that Disney plans to buy a large portion of 21st Century Fox, but the Democrats on the Senate and House antitrust subcommittees aren’t as thrilled.
A blockbuster media consolidation deal announced this morning sees Fox handing over nearly its entire empire to ESPN’s corporate parent Disney, with the exceptions of Fox News and the national Fox Sports networks FS1, FS2, BTN, Fox Deportes, and Fox Soccer Plus.

Today’s announcement of Disney and Fox’s monumental deal raises a lot of questions. For example: What are the regulatory implications of dismantling one of Hollywood’s biggest film studios?

After weeks of teasing the public with reports of false starts and stops, Disney and Fox have settled on a massive $52 billion deal in which all of 21st Century’s film rights are being sold to the House of Mouse. Marvel’s Cinematic Universe is about to get a whole lot more, well, fantastic.
The first details about the next chapter in the X-Men movie franchise, Dark Phoenix, are here. And as you’d expect when it comes to adapting one of the most iconic sagas of the X-comics, things are about to get hot under the collar for Jean Grey. And like, everywhere else too.
You know that creepy Folgers commercial from a couple of years ago that made it seem as if the brother and sister had an inappropriately close relationship? That’s more or less what this week’s episode of The Gifted was like. Only, you know, with superpowers and cheesy special effects.
Even though The Gifted’s mutants aren’t trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, they are living in a dystopian world where systemic racism from within the government poses a very real risk to their lives. That’s the underlying message of a new viral ad for the show that focuses on a high school for mutant…
Though reports suggested that talks stalled last month, negotiations between Disney and Fox are back on and may come to a head by the end of the year, with the potential fate of Fox’s biggest entertainment assets in the balance.
X-Men: The Animated Series ended in 1997 after five seasons on a bit of a cliffhanger: the frail Charles Xavier, near death, was whisked into space by the Shi’ar Empress Lilanda in an attempt to save his life. We never got to see if Charles survived or returned to Earth, but showrunner Eric Lewald’s ideas for what…
