CNBC sources say negotiations began a few weeks ago about the Walt Disney Co. potentially buying Fox's movie and TV properties, leaving the Murdochs to focus mostly on Fox News and Fox Sports.

Marvel Studios' inability to use the X-Men and Fantastic Four - as well as most of their supporting casts - within the MCU franchise has always been a sore spot with Marvel fans, and it didn't look likely that FOX would ever be inclined to give the film rights to the characters back to Marvel.
Popular 20th Century Fox releases this past year include "Alien: Covenant", "The Boss Baby", and the final Wolverine film "Logan"; the studio's upcoming projects include "Deadpool 2", "X-Men: Dark Phoenix", Queen biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" and four "Avatar" sequels. That deal is now undergoing review by United Kingdom regulators. This could mean great news if you are a fan of the Marvel comic book superheroes.
