What would you do with an extra $65 billion in cash? That's the price Comcast is officially offering to buy Fox, outbidding Disney's offer, which was already accepted, of $52 billion in stock. This is up from Comcast's rumored offer of $60 billion. Wall Street analysts expect Disney to match Comcast's offer, potentially taking on $37 billion in debt to do so.
Now that the AT&T and Time Warner merger has been approved, it's only a matter of time until Fox is absorbed by either Comcast or Disney.
We'll see if that extra $13 billion is enough to keep the Fantastic Four and the X-Men from coming home to Marvel.
