Yes.. I said NEEDS TO! This may come as a shock to some of you, ‘Loyal Readers’ as to that i was against The Marvel/Sony Spider-Man deal. I felt that, after the train wreck that was AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. Marvel should have let Spidey die at Sony and then when the contract expired, Spidey would just end up back at Marvel with no cost at all.
When the Sony/Marvel deal was announced I had the feeling that Marvel was helping Sony keep something that rightfully belonged to Them. It was upsetting… THEN, CIVIL WAR happened..
And I’ve grown up since then. Or at least, I’ve grown some sense.
So now 20TH Century Fox is up shits creek with thier X-Men property and are currently considering a full series Reboot. Gut, fanboy instinct is to say, Give Them Back To Marvel! But.. The grown up, more knowledgeable fanboy says..
Marvel has a whole lot on its plate. Phase 3 is nearing its end and Phase 4 is still up in the air at this point. FOX, is not looking to part ways with a franchise thats garnered them so many millions of dollars over the years. They already lost STAR WARS. I dont think they want to give up on this property.
That being said.. If, indeed, Fox wants to hold on to The X-Men and its characters. They should. No. They Need, to consider a deal with Marvel Studios, to help them right thier ship and get on track. Whether its a trade of characters or property’s (ala Fantastic Four and related Characters *COUGH* silver surfer and galactus*COUGH COUGH*)
In order to insure a more bankable franchise.
FOX Needs to find someone who can guide the X-UNIVERSE in the right direction. Kevin Fiege is clearly the right choice. But he too has a lot on his plate.. And i firmly believe that Simon Kinberg
IS NOT the man for the job!
Perhaps, once Feige feels that Sony is going in the right direction and can handle the Universe that Marvel has brought Spider-Man into, on its own. Then maybe he can help Fox guide the X-Men later on down the line.
What Fox lacks in its X-Universe, is stability and continuity. Each movie is practically a stand alone film.
IF Fox were to strike a deal with Marvel Studios in order to make a more profitable X-Men Franchise for them and a more satisfying experiance for the fans. It would be the best thing they could do.
With yet another Franchise Reboot looming in the future.. Only time will tell what is in store for us and The X-MEN.
What do you folks think? Would it be wise for Fox to strike a similar deal with Marvel Studios like Sony, in order to save The X-Men? Please leave a comment below. Follow/Subscribe.
So, until next time folks… Peace Out!
