Is Disney About To Steal Away The Fantastic Four And X-Men From Fox?

See all the characters in the blue picture? Those characters are Marvel comic book characters who’s live-action versions are currently under control of 21st Century Fox, meaning the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the universe that is currently in the midst of the greatest run of intertwined filmmaking ever created has not had access to the Fantastic Four, the X-Men or even the word, ‘mutant.’

Well, that may be about to change as CNBC reported this morning that 21st Century Fox is in the midst of very serious talks to sell it’s film and television business to Disney, the parent of Marvel Studios and the aforementioned, MCU. While there is no certainty that there will be a deal, and even if there was, it would take quite a while to fully complete. The senior management of Fox is apparently interested in tightening the companies focus on news and sports.

Such a merger would not include any of Fox’s actual networks, as Disney already owns ABC, and owning two networks is a no-no, but with characters like Legion and shows like The Gifted, as well as Deadpool, Wolverine, the entire X-Men universe and the Fantastic Four (meaning Dr Doom and Galactus,) actually owning the Fox television networks wouldn’t even matter. Of course, if you’ve listened to our swapcasts with Thom Tran, you’ll know that a FF appearance in Avengers 3 or 4 means Jay and I have to dress up like Eddie Murphy from Raw and Delirious, respectively, and re-enact each entire special. Looks like we’ve got the opening story for our next podcast! Make sure you don’t miss Episode 71, dropping soon!

WONDER WOMAN star Said Taghmaoui casted as Shadow King

Said_Taghmaoui

There is more and more news coming out of Comic-con in San Diego and this is one of them

The Legion panel ended with a pretty major news drop (well, two) as FX officially revealed that Saïd Taghmaoui has joined the season two cast as Amahl Farouk, a.k.a. the Shadow King.

The entire principal cast, including Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza, Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, and Amber Midthunder, were all in attendance for the show’s first ever SDCC panel alongside series creator Noah Hawley and executive producers John Cameron, Lauren Shuler Donner, and Jeph Loeb.

Season two plot details were kept under wraps, but Hawley did cryptically tease that they are working on possibly introducing David Haller’s famous father, Professor X. We also learned that the second season will consist of ten episodes, which are expected to debut early 2018.

Taghmaoui is coming in hot after a scene-stealing performance as Sameer in Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman and his past credits include American HustleThree KingsThe InfiltratorG.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and Lost.

Fox is for some reason developing a Doctor Doom movie

WHY???? Just WHY is this even going to happen. Well you know what let me go back and try to be as objective as possible. At a Producer’s panel for The FX show Legion at Comic-con in San Diego, its showrunner Noah Hawley just officially announced that he is developing a Doctor Doom movie for 20th Century Fox.

Hawley said during the panel, “I’m developing a film for Fox and I’ll just say two words, Doctor, Doom.”

This has caught many Marvel fans COMPLETELY OFF GUARD. Doctor Doom being one of Marvel’s most iconic villains has not been done justice in theaters. He has been featured in all three  of 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four films the 2005, 2007 (Rise of the Silver Surfer) and the 2015 reboot,  but he has not possessed both the true genius and menace that fans have come to know.

We want to know what do you all the readers think of this? Is it a good idea to do a Doctor Doom solo film or should he be included in the next reboot that is being talked about for the Fantastic Four.
