Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that Kevin Feige would oversee the X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises once Disney's acquisition of Fox is complete. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Iger was asked if Marvel would absorb both X-Men and Fantastic Four and if Feige would oversee them.

"I think it only makes sense," Iger said. "I want to be careful here because of what's been communicated to the Fox folks, but I think they know. It only makes sense for Marvel to be supervised by one entity. There shouldn't be two Marvels."

Iger was also asked about integrating the talent that Fox was bringing to the merger.

"Very good question. We're going to take the best people from both companies and that's who's gonna basically be on the playing field for us. Meaning, talent will prevail. Fox Searchlight is a great example. You look at FX, NatGeo. Yeah, you're buying libraries and brands, but you're also buying the people. I'm not gonna talk about specific people right now except to say that I've met with virtually the entire senior management team at Fox and I'm not only fully engaged with them on what the possibilities for them might be but I'm excited about the prospects."

With the merger still being worked on, these effects wouldn't go into place until 2019 at the earliest.
