Yep, all of this and then some.

Who cares?
Can you do anything about it? No. Can I? No.
Chillax and enjoy the ride.
Don't worry about things beyond your control.

As predicted, Disney raised its offer. A lot.

Fox accepted. Again.

Yeah. But there's a catch. They can't have Fox Sports. Since Disney already owns ESPN.

Fox Sports and Fox News were never on the table, even a year ago. The existing owners of Fox are going to start "New Fox" or something, after the sale is completed.

Well, why sue if the acquisition was going to be knocked down by the government?

He's suing now based on what was released in recent SEC filings related to the acquisition.

This move is fairly common in M&A deals involving publicly traded companies. There's always someone unhappy about it.

Looks like Comcast isn't likely to make another bid for Fox.

The Disney and Fox shareholder votes to approve the deal are 7/27.

Nothing excites me more than an X-Men film set in the MCU.

Not quite. It still needs approval by some international regulatory bodies. Getting the DOJ approval last month was the biggest hurdle.
