Greetings ladies and gentelnerds!
When it was announced that Josh Brolin was cast as CABLE for “DEADPOOL 2”. The news, understandably, confused many fans. How can this actor be in two places at once?
Like most companies/movie studios, or hell even sports teams. If you are signed in to a ‘Contract’. That means they own you. You cant go or do anything anywhere else that resembles what you do for them. IE: the no Compete Clause.
Josh Brolin and many other Marvel Studios Stars are under that same No Compete Clause in thier contracts.. Meaning, No Marvel Studios employee can star or participate in other comic book properties outside of Marvel Studios. So, How is it that Marvel allowed Josh to head on over to Fox, whilst still under contract? And no its not because its another “Marvel” film.. It may have the Marvel Banner, but its not in the same house.
Here’s what it really is.. Marvel and Fox have a secret, backdoor relationship.
In this relationship. “I’ll give you this, if you give me that.”
Fox ownes everything and anything that falls under FANTASTIC FOUR, or X-MEN.
Not including those that are Co-owned by Marvel and Fox. Like, RONIN THE ACCUSER,
QUICKSILVER, and SCARLET WITCH
just to name a known few.
However! As we all know, EGO the living planet was a character that belonged to Fox. Yet he appeared in Marvel’s GUARDIANS Vol. 2.? Thats because..
Marvel and James Gunn approached Fox for Ego. Now, Fox being the opportunist said sure.. If you let us change Nega Sonic Teenage Warheads
powers and design for this little movie we are doing called, DEADPOOL.
Marvel said.. “Deal!”
So, Who’s to say, this hasn’t happened more then once before.
James Gunn has stated his interest in using the Skrulls. If im not mistaken.. I think it was for Guardians 1. But the Skrulls belong to Fox. So he went with the Sakaarens!
Here’s the interesting part. Marvel recently announced that The Skrulls, will be the villains of CAPTAIN MARVEL!
So.. Was the Josh Brolin deal the key component of Marvel getting the Skrulls?
Or was it, or is it, something else?
We can only wait and see. But this secret relationship between Marvel and Fox looks to be a benefit for not only the companies. But for the fans as well.
I for one cant wait to see what other trades and deals come out from these two..
Hopefully.. Its something good, and something soon.. *cough* SILVER SURFER!! *cough* *cough*
Until next time folks.. Peace out!
