Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 writer/director James Gunn had some immediate reactions to today's news that Disney is moving forward with a deal to purchase most of 21tst Century Fox - a move that, if finalized, will bring the X-Men and Fantastic Four movie rights to Disney and Marvel Studios.
Gunn's thoughts seemed to echo those of many fans - that he's excited to see the Fantastic Four and X-Men come home.
