After the monumental news broke early Thursday that Disney had purchased a sizable chunk of 21st Century Fox, talk immediately turned to the X-Men and Fantastic Four and whether they could possibly join the Avengers in a movie later on down the line. During a conference call with investors, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that the MCU will expand to include those properties including Deadpool.
With Justice League in the rearview mirror, fans are now looking to next year’s Aquaman to see what else Warner Bros.’ DCEU will bring to the table. James Wan has now finished production and is on to post-production, with speculation from fans now wondering if the movie will feature three villains. This comes from casting announcements that have Patrick Wilson playing Aquaman’s half-brother Orm (aka the Ocean Master), Abdul-Mateen playing Black Manta, and Dolph Lundgren playing King Nereus. According to Wan himself, however, that’s not the case.
