Marvel's Head Kevin Feige Trolled on Twitter Amid Layoffs After Disney-Fox Merger

The president of Marvel Studios is likened to Marvel's villains as people poke fun at his conquest of the movie industry.

AceShowbiz - Disney has officially taken possession of 20th Century Fox's "X-Men" and "Fantastic Four" franchises following the merger. While this brings hope for more crossovers in future Marvel movies, fans can't help giving their two cents on Disney taking control of such a large portion of the entertainment industry.

People have taken to Twitter to express their opinions with some memes, with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige at the center of the tweets. The producer of MCU movies is imagined as Marvel's villains Josh Brolin's Thanos from "Avengers: Infinity War" and Karl Urban's The Executioner from "Thor: Ragnarok".

The idea is that people liken Feige's conquest of the movie industry to the imperial schemes of Marvel's villains.

MCU actor Chris Hemsworth himself has celebrated Disney-Fox merger by sharing a fan art to welcome Deadpool and Ryan Reynolds to the Mouse House. "Our love child #thor #deadpool @vancityreynolds," the Thor depicter wrote in the caption of the image showing Deadpool wearing Thor's helmet and holding a tiny Mjolnir.

Meanwhile, Ryan Reynolds had earlier marked the merger by sharing a photo of Deadpool wearing a Mickey hat with the mouse ears while riding a bus with "Disney" plastered on the side. "Feels like the first day of 'Pool," he captioned it.

While the merger seems to be good news for fans, the acquisition of Twentieth Century Fox by Disney is going to bring big consequences to the former. Variety reports that as many as 4,000 employees are predicted to lose their jobs in layoffs, though the ax has yet to fall. Meanwhile, Fox 2000 will be shut down.

Meanwhile, Fox filmmaker Paul Feig, who signed a deal to develop R-rated comedies for Fox years ago, is in the process if moving his FeigCo label to Universal. This isn't a surprise though, since Feig's deal has lapsed and his future R-rated movies won't find home at Disney.
