According to the report, talks have been going on behind closed doors for several weeks now and Fox is propositioning Disney to buy everything except for their sports and news sectors. This would mean that Disney would own the movie studio, the TV production, international assets such as Star/Sky, along with popular entertainment networks such as FX and National Geographic.
For us movie fans, this would be a huge opportunity for Disney to finally own pretty much all of the Marvel comic property rights except for the Spider-Man properties that Sony still owns. This means X-Men and Fantastic Four would finally be included in Marvel's beloved Cinematic Universe.
If the sell were to go through, the potential for the MCU and X-Men universe to combine in a movie down the line would potentially turn out to be one of the biggest cinematic events that the movie going public has ever seen. The story-line possibilities would be virtually limitless. Imagine Wolverine, Captain America, and The Hulk teaming up to take on Magneto and Loki! I mean, wow! My brain just kind of exploded!
