Once Disney has finally taken over Fox, it is expected to see many of the franchises and productions that do not fit into Disney’s content policy to be adapted for reboots in order to make them accessible to younger people.
We don’t know what will happen with Alien or The Predator but according to Hollywood sources, the only X-Men character to not have a reboot will be Deadpool.
Disney’s CEO, Bob Iger, underlined many times that just a similar Deadpool might find its place under Disney’s roof. Moreover, Deadpool movies grossed more than $1.5 billion and this is a pretty compelling reason not to change anything.
Ryan Reynolds marked the Fox – Disney merger with a message on twitter, a message written in the Deadpool naughty way:
