First of all, Fox is not going to buy Time Warner. It’s not going to happen because they can’t afford it and won’t survive the logistic hell from the FTC and FCC that involves the broadcast networks owned by the two companies (WPCH in Atlanta and half of The CW is owned by Time Warner while Fox, My Network TV, and MundoFox are owned by Fox, and there would have to be concessions, including dissolving The CW altogether, something Fox has wanted to do since The WB merged with UPN almost a decade ago).
Also, the fact that they’d have to sell off CNN, which is a much larger news organization than Fox News/Sky News combined, seems laughable and myopic. The world is bigger than the United States.
Speaking of laughable and myopic, fanboys are creaming themselves over a film they think could happen if Time Warner got taken over by 21st Century Fox.
"We could get a Batman/Wolverine crossover movie."
No. No you won’t.
See, even if DC Entertainment was acquired by 21st Century Fox (again, it’s not going to happen), they still won’t make a crossover film with a character from a competing studio/publisher, in this case Marvel Entertainment’s Wolverine. It’s nonsense to think Disney, owners of those Marvel characters, would even allow Fox to do it in the first place. I mean, remember when Time Warner’s New Line Cinema made Blade movies? No crossing over into the DC Universe with that character.
Just because you own a bunch of franchises doesn’t mean everything has to cross over. You don’t see Harry Potter crossing over with Tim Hunter and the Books of Magic. You don’t see Freddy Kreuger taking on the Winchester Brothers of Supernatural. Don’t you think Warner Bros would make Batman v Harry Potter: The Boys Who Lived if they wanted to?
So, get that out of your head, because unless Disney bought Time Warner (and they won’t), you’ll never see Batman and Wolverine in the same live-action film.
