Disney to buy 20th Century Fox? Could Han shoot first once again?

In a move that would not only change the playing field but most likely the entire way the game is played, CNBC is reporting that The Walt Disney Company is in early talks to potentially purchase parts of 21st Century Fox, the parent company of both the 20th Century Fox movie studio and the Fox Television production company, along with other media assets like FX Networks and National Geographic, as well as international platforms like Star and Sky.

If this deal goes through it could mean that the X-Men, Deadpool, and The Fantastic Four could return to Disney’s Marvel Studios movie universe! This would also mean that Disney would get their hands on Alien, Predator, Planet of the Apes, Kingsman, Die Hard and Avatar.

Another exciting thought is that we may see Han shoot first once again as Fox still owns the rights to 1977’s original Star Wars. If Disney gets is back could they undo the damage?
