Marvel: X-Men and Other Fox Characters Won’t Be Part Of MCU For A “Handful Of Years”

Hours after announcing its acquired 21st Century Fox, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced, via Deadline, that X-Men, Deadpool and Fantastic Four would all join the MCU:
“We have the opportunity to expand iconic franchises for new generations of fans just as we have done with Marvel and Star Wars. The obvious example is Avatar, which is still the single highest-grossing film in history. We’ve already worked with James Cameron to span the storytelling into a spectacular new land called Pandora: The World of Avatar, which opened in Orlando earlier this year and we’re very excited to continue that relationship, especially related to the series of Avatar films he’s currently working on. We’re also looking forward to expanding the Marvel cinematic universe to include X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool and reuniting all of the Star Wars movies ever made under one roof, which opens new opportunities for that franchise."

Disney acquired 21st Century Fox for $52.4 billion. As far as I'm concerned, this is a direct threat to creatives everywhere. Disney can now add the X-Men, “Alien,” and “Avatar” franchises at their disposal, amongst many others, which adds a significant artillery of films to their upcoming streaming service, set to debut in 2019.

However, Feige is now clearing up what he meant  just a few months ago, in an interview with The Playlist, the Marvel head said don't expect teh X-Men or any other Fox entities to join the MCU for, at least, "a handful of years" after the deal is done:
“No, because any of that deal would take a while to get going and years from whenever and if ever it happens. So, certainly it won’t impact the five movies we’ve announced, and it probably wouldn’t impact anything for a handful of years after that. Because really, we’re not thinking about that. We’re thinking of delivering on what we promised. Any movie, especially for any characters we don’t have the rights to yet until someone tells us we do, would be even further after that.”
