It looks like there's a bit of trouble over the horizon for Disney and its attempt at purchasing 21st Century Fox and its assets.
Earlier this month, reports started coming in saying that Comcast was trying to pose as stiff competition for Disney and its plans to buy 21st Century Fox.
Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the company confirms that it's preparing to make a "superior bid" with an all-cash offer for the studio and its assets. Apparently, Comcast is already in the "advanced stages" of preparing an alternative offer for Fox, an all-cash bid that would be "at a premium to the value of the current all-share offer from Disney."
If Comcast makes an official offer, fans might see an all-out bidding war between the company and the Mickey Mouse House, adding danger to Disney's acquisition of 21st Century Fox and its assets.
It's definitely interesting that Comcast still hasn't given up on 21st Century Fox, even after the company bowed out of the race last year. No one was expecting Comcast to come back and challenge the acquisition with a striking offer of their own.
Marvel fans looking forward to the return of the X-Men and the other mutants to the Marvel Cinematic Universe probably might want to hold their breath a bit for the 21st Century Fox acquisition. It definitely looks like Disney still has a long way to go before they Fox and its assets.
