It’s been a while since we’ve heard Disney’s plans for the X-Men and for the Fantastic Four. However, it seems like the Mickey Mouse House is actually pretty optimistic about the mutant’s future debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Variety just recently wrote a report on Disney’s plans for the various film assets that it gained from its merger with Fox, and according to the entertainment news outlet, the House of Mouse is optimistic that Marvel will improve the quality of the X-Men and Fantastic Four film franchises.
“Disney is optimistic that handing Fox superhero properties such as “Fantastic Four” and “X-Men” to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will improve the quality of these movies, but bumps must be smoothed over in that transition,” the site wrote in its article.
Of course, Disney still has a few reservations about these properties, especially after the studio lost $170 million during the third quarter of the year, something which was blamed on the failings of X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
The studio which claimed to be enamored by Deadpool’s brassy nature is now “grappling how to fit the very R-rated” film franchise into the PG-13 domain of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Disney is also unimpressed by Fox’s New Mutants movie, the very last X-Men film that’s been produced by 20th Century Fox. G
Hopefully, Disney will be able to find a solution to its dilemma as well as a way to properly introduce the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, and Deadpool into the MCU soon.
