If the trade analyses are right, Fox would seem to have the upper hand

If Disney does acquire Fox, I do hope they cast a new Wolverine. I enjoyed Jackman as the character and if Disney acquires the rights again, they will likely pumping out more a lot more X-Men movies. This would mean the actor playing him would likely be assuming the role for the next 5-10 years.

I'm all for Disney getting the rights to X-Men and fantastic 4. Unify the universes. A true Silver surfer movie with Galactus... I can only dream. I suspect it would take some time to build up to Galactus though.
