Fox Thinking About Its Marvel-verse Appearing On TV

Simon Kinberg thinks it makes sense.

In an interview with Collider, producer/writer Simon Kinberg (X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men: First Class, Star Wars Rebels) discussed what 20th Century Fox's plans are for it's Marvel properties.

Says Kinberg:

"Fox does understand that they are sitting on this massive universe with the X-Men, also with Fantastic Four obviously.  But they definitely have a sense of it and there’s a real interest and appetite for how to explore and expand that world into other movies, into spinoffs, into different time periods, the whole gamut.”

In short, they are figuring things out. Fox currently holds the rights to do movies for X-Men, Fantastic Four, X-Force, Deadpool, and the New Mutants. Apparently this extends to television as well. Note that Fox also previously had the rights to Daredevil on screen, but no longer has it and Marvel announced that Daredevil will have his own television appearance on Netflix.

"We’re still in this place of figuring out what the future of the franchise will be, but when you look at S.H.I.E.L.D. to some extent and what Marvel is doing now with Daredevil and other shows on Netflix, it makes sense to tell some of these stories in TV partly because there’s just not enough screens to do all these characters, and also because the serialized format of comic books is better suited for TV.  Because that’s it, every week you come back to the same characters different story, and in comic books every week it’s the same characters, different story."

The interviewer also asked about the long rumored R-rated Deadpool movie. Kinberg also sees the sense in that:

"Yeah, it makes sense to me.  Genuinely it’s early phases, early days, but if you’re gonna do a Deadpool movie, I think you’ve gotta do a hard-R, darker movie and he is the perfect character to do it with."


So, what do you, our wonderful readers think? Which, if any, Fox controlled Marvel properties would you like to see on the small screen? Could this be the time for a Wolverine TV series? Now that's a character we don't see enough of!
