Disney's Fox Acquisition Makes It Minority Owner Of BOOM! Studios

While fans everywhere are rejoicing about the possibility of a reunited Marvel Cinematic Universe thanks to Disney's $52 Billion acquisition of 21st Century Fox's film and TV divisions, a lesser known fact is that the deal would also make Disney minority owner of BOOM! Studios, which Fox bought into in June.

It's unknown at this point if Disney will sell off BOOM! or invest in it, but it's most likely that Disney will use the publisher as an IP farm as it does with everything else it gorges itself on.

While we can only speculate at this point if anything at BOOM! will change, we can be assured that Disney CEO Bob Iger's 435' yacht will occasionally sail past BOOM!'s Los Angeles offices to remind Ross Richie who is really in charge.
