Disney's merger with 21st Century Fox is finally coming to fruition and Marvel fans are eagerly waiting for the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Deadpool, and all the other mutants to finally make their way to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In the meantime, as fans continue to wait for the acquisition to reach completion, the guys at The Geek Twins return with an updated visual breakdown of the different Marvel properties and which studios and which companies own the live-action rights to these different Marvel Comics characters.

The publication's visual guide is pretty comprehensive – not only does it show the characters that Marvel Studios, Universal Pictures, Sony, and Netflix have individually, it also shows the characters that the studios share.

With Universal, Marvel shares individuals like Betty Ross, General Ross, The Leader, abomination, and the Hulk. With Sony, the studio shares characters like Mysterio, Aunt May, Spider-Man (Miles Morales), Spider-Man (Peter Parker), Vulture, Mary Jane, J. Jonah Jameson, and surprisingly, the Shocker.

Between Netflix and Sony is the Kingpin who appears in Marvel TV's Netflix shows like Daredevil and who recently appeared in Sony's animated movie, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Marvel fans might be wondering why characters like Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist still remain with Netflix despite the fact that their series have long-since been canceled by the company, but it seems like a clause in the streaming site's contract with Marvel TV actually prohibits these characters from joining other streaming sites or any other network.

Disney has seemingly been considering the possibility of bringing Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist to Disney+, but it looks like it might take some time.

Marvel's Avengers: Endgame premieres April 26, 2019.
