"DEADPOOL", "DARK PHOENIX" AND THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE FOX TAKEOVER
Variety sees this incident as just a symptom of the larger issues Disney faces with its acquisition of Fox. To unite the philosophies of the two studios is one of the tasks facing the group now. For example, it still has to be decided how to proceed under Disney with the known for violence and delinquencies "Deadpool" series. "Deadpool 3" is supposed to come, but the studio is still looking for a suitable way in which the superhero can appear in both the family-friendly "Avengers" movies and adult-only solo adventures.
Another task was to decide what to do with each of the various stages of development projects started under Fox and now to be released under the Disney flag. Most recently, the group made almost only losses with the Fox films, especially the mega-flop "X-Men: Dark Phoenix", which could bring in a budget of 200 million US dollars, only about 250 million. Considering the additional costs for marketing and co., One can figure out that Disney should be anything but satisfied with this result.
