Kevin Feige and Marvel will oversee the X-Males films
I believe all of us knew this was coming, although I’ve bought a powerful argument for why it should not, however Bob Iger, Disney’s CEO, confirmed in an interview with THR that the X-Males will likely be housed underneath the Marvel umbrella as soon as the Fox merger goes by means of. Iger needed to be a bit candid as a result of it is unlawful for Fox to not faux like all the pieces is regular, however he principally informed everybody in command of X-Males at Fox that they need to begin on the lookout for one other job.
“I believe it solely is sensible. I wish to watch out right here due to what’s been communicated to the Fox of us, however I believe they know. It solely is sensible for Marvel to be supervised by one entity. There should not be two Marvels,” he mentioned.
Duh. Apparent assertion is apparent.
My challenge is that I sort of appreciated the 2 being separate. I do know that is there’s tons of superior plots that would occur with crossovers and many cool issues, however there’s already a bajillion characters in each these cinematic universes. Let em’ play by themselves. They’re OK doing that, particularly with Feige on the helm as he is fairly good at understanding characters and what they can be utilized for. Conserving them aside may even give Disney and Marvel some wiggle room in making extra R-rated films, which a boy can all the time dream about. Fortunately, Iger’s assertion would not preclude this so there’s nonetheless an opportunity.
As for Deadpool. Evidently, Feige has “a variety of concepts.”
There is a metric ton of goodies within the Iger interview on a number of Disney topics, so properly value trying out.
