The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit provided an update on the status of Julius Avery’s Flash Gordon film after Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox’ entertainment assets.
In October 2017, it was reported Overlord director Julius Avery was on board to write and direct a new Flash Gordon film for 20th Century Fox. Since then, Disney has completed its acquisition of the film studio, along with other key 21st Century Fox assets, leaving fans to wonder what the future holds for Julius Avery’s Flash Gordon reboot. Now, THR’s Bory Kit has informed fans that while he heard Julius Avery’s Flash Gordon script is “hardcore,” the status of the project is currently unclear now that 20th Century Fox is under the Disney umbrella.
Last year, Julius Avery signed to write and direct a FLASH GORDON movie for Fox. Script is in (heard it's hardcore) but unclear what the status is, given the Disney acquisition. Another takeaway: Disney now owns movie rights to Flash Gordon.

Endgame will serve as both a follow up to Avengers: Infinity War as well as the conclusion to the 22 films that came before it, which have now been dubbed as the Infinity Saga by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, before Marvel kicks off Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Spider-Man: Far From Home in July.
While plot details still remain under wraps, Earth's Mightiest Heroes are expected to team up with Brie Larson's Captain Marvel and utilize the Quantum Realm in their efforts to undo the decimation from Thanos' snap and bring back half of the universe's population, who were turned to dust by the Mad Titan.
