Since Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios made the deal to have Spider-Man enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans have been hoping to see a similar deal happen between Marvel and 20th Century Fox for the X-Men and Fantastic Four. The X-Men franchises have been going strong since X-Men: Days of Future Past, but that hasn’t been the case for the Fantastic Four.
Fox attempted to reboot the franchise in 2015 with Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four which ended up being both a critical and box office bomb. Supposedly the studio is still planning on doing something with the superhero group, but it has been quiet on that front for a while now.
Kevin Feige, who is the president of Marvel Studios, was recently asked by AlloCiné about any potential plans on having the Fantastic Four join the MCU. Unfortunately, Feige explained that there are no discussions with Fox and Marvel right now to have the group show up and fight with the Avengers.
“[We have] no plans with the Fantastic Four right now. No discussions about it.”
Hopefully we will know sooner rather than later what Fox is planning on doing with the franchise. Maybe the two studios will at some point come together to make a deal, but only time will tell.
What do you think Fox should do with the Fantastic Four? Sound off in the comments below.
7 Greatest Legacy Superheroes In Comics
Comic books are an old medium so quite a few characters have a strong legacy. Some heroes have such a strong legacy that other individuals have taken up their mantle and continued the fight in their honor.
Superheroes are much more than people just running around beating up the bad guys. Each hero embodies different values that represent some of the best facets of humanity. Kids look up to superheroes for their values, not their muscles. When a hero stands for something, certain people will adopt that value as their own and continue their fight. Most superheroes are mortal and as a result of that will have to end their heroic careers at some point in the future. But if they are able to develop a legacy someone else wants to preserve then they can rest easy knowing the good fight will continue.
