Yes, it’s true. Disney, who will probably own everything one day, have purchased “most” of 20th Century Fox. This not only means that characters like the X-Men and The Fantastic Four [and what’s the betting they’ll have another go at the latter now?] will now co-exist under the same roof as Marvel’s lot, but also that the Alien and Predator franchises are now under the ownership of the House of the Mouse.
What does this mean? Rumours already surfacing that Disney may not continue Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel series, and judging by the mediocre quality of the first two instalments, I’d argue that’s not really a bad thing. On the other hand the Shane Black Predator is still definitely being made. I would imagine that Disney, who like to milk everything, will have another go at Alien and not long after that go down the Alien Vs Predator route – and perhaps it’ll be done well this time.
