In a press junket for The Disaster ArtistJames Franco confirmed he's working on a superhero project, where he's attached as producer and actor. He didn't name the character, but there are reports that Marvel is working on a film centered around Multiple Man.

"I do have a superhero that I am developing," said Franco. "I don't know how much I can say. But I will say I am producing and performing in it. It's early stages. I think probably what I can say is, like anything, there's a need to develop more."

Franco gave kudos to Simon Kinberg, the producer and writer behind the X-Men franchise.

"Our bottom line MO is, how can we push this into new ground? A little bit, but still make it entertaining? [But] what I love about what Simon Kinberg and Fox and the X-Men people have done with Deadpool and Logan — it took a while to get there, maybe 10 years — but they are going to go hard R. And we're going to take this superhero thing and really just push it into a new genre. So we're working with Simon Kinberg on an X-Men property."

The rumored Multiple Man film will be produced by Kinberg and written by Allan Heinberg, screenwriter of Wonder Woman. Other future Fox X-Men films include The New Mutants, Deadpool 2, Gambit, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix, as Fox is doing its best to mine every possible film they can out of the franchise.
