This could signal the end of those terrible X-Men movies
It’s no secret that the X-Men movies have had their fair share of ups and downs. Including the original movies and the rebooted ones, there’s only been a handful which can be considered good. However, those days could be a thing of the past (insert pun) as Disney’s CEO Bob Iger, has confirmed that once the Fox merger is complete, all the X-Men movies will rest solely in the hands of Marvel. Where they rightfully belong.
I think it only makes sense. I want to be careful here because of what’s been communicated to the Fox folks, but I think they know. It only makes sense for Marvel to be supervised by one entity. There shouldn’t be two Marvels.
In other words, even though this merger would bring over those who worked on the files at Fox, they won’t have any involvement with them anymore. In fact, it’s safe to assume those anyone from the Fox side of things won’t be touching anything belonging to Marvel anymore.
Instead, Marvel’s Kevin Feige and the Marvel Studio will be heading up any upcoming X-Men films. Which puts the franchise back in his hands, as he worked on the original X-Men movies; X-Men, X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand. Since then, he’s been the producer of the MCU and either produced or co-produced every one off of those movies, starting with Iron Man.
So we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief. Unless we get another stinker like X-Men: The Last Stand. Oh, and if X-Men: Dark Phoenix turns out to be bad, don’t blame Marvel. While the merger could be completed by the time this movie drops, it’s 100% a Fox production.
