Mr Murdoch's entertainment empire, 21st Century Fox, previous year agreed to sell its film and television studios, its pay-TV operations including its stake in Sky, and a clutch of other assets, to Disney.
The Fox and Sky deals would transform Comcast into a global entertainment giant that could compete with Netflix and break out of the USA market with its melting cable-subscriber base.
Those offers included the potential for Sky News to be owned by Disney - bypassing concerns that Rupert Murdoch's family would have too much control over United Kingdom media. But in its most recent earnings call, co-executive chairman Lachlan Murdoch said that "we are committed to our agreement with Disney" and that board members "are aware of their fiduciary duties on behalf of all shareholders".
Comcast said Wednesday that it's in the "advanced stages" of preparing its bid.
Comcast further claims their offer would be "at least as favorable" to Fox's shareholders as Disney's offer.
Comcast's stock was down almost 2 percent in early Wednesday trading at $31.88, near its 52-week low of $30.43.
Disney shares have fallen almost 3.3 percent since, reducing the value of the offer to just over $50 billion.
