I am really excited for this.
Bryan Singer Confirms Plans for X-MEN and F4 Crossover
Well, I surely welcome the option.
I didn't know at the time I saw that link that "time" could potentially mean Kang the Conqueror , which might in the slightest also mean inter-dimensional cross-over .
I do sympathize with those who want to see more X-related teams and characters before this event.
It can't happen without Marvel giving it OK, And Marvel is not going to let the crossover happen if they get something back in return.
Besides given what we've seen from the trailers and promotions thus far I don't think this film would be financial or critical success, and given how Fox already botched up 2 FF movies before, this may well be their third strike, so they may well have to return the rights back to Marvel.
Not that I'm hoping that would happen. (Though if that's a likely scenario it may well be in favor of the fans.)
Fox owns the movie rights to both properties.
Quick Science Lessons in these New F4 Featurettes with by Dr Michio Kaku
And there is little to no chance they can cross this over with X-Men. They are different contracts, different deals.
They have as good of a chance at crossing those two properties as the MCU has at having the Hulk show up in an Avengers movie since Universal still owns the Hulk rights . So, I should have clarified that Constantin Film owns the F4 rights, but Fox is still the studio making those films. A lot of news outlets, for what ever reason, don't make that distinction.
Probably because the Constantin name for FF isn't really brought up in any of the major credits like with the Hulk being at Universal, so no one really brings it up besides people who either are specifically at that company or to clarify the exact rights distributions for others.
Also if Bryan Singer is saying there will be a crossover, I kind of would believe that as he would obviously know way more about the rights and distrubtions and whether or not he can use these characters more then any of us here. If he gives official word then yeah that rings more true then people trying to say "well technically" here.
Can someone defend Fox over this move:
With no merchandise tie-ins and... Yikes.
The embargo is basically the kiss of death for this. There never was going to be any merch and limited tie-ins (They have one with Denny's. That's just sad) due to Marvel doing the right thing and locking Fox out. I'm still cheering for this thing to fail spectacularly so those rights can come back home to Marvel where they belong.
Unless I hate a film, I never root for it to bomb, but I have to admit, it would be nice to see the FF team appear in the MCU eventually.
I think this Fantastic Four movie is going to under perform at the box office. There is a perfect storm of sorts brewing that I think will each in their own way contribute to making sure that it does not succeed.
1. All the negative buzz surrounding the production of the film with Josh Trank
2. Fan Anticipation of this film being very split due to many wanting it to revert to Marvel Studios
3. The Embargo on critics being held until the last minute (Fox people are not stupid)
Looks like Marvel and FOX may not be as big of enemies as we thought....
Judging from the video, the Disney Channel is promoting it, and if I recall, the 2005 F4 film aired on Disney XD last month.
8/2: How much did Fox paid this NBA star for this review:
8/4: This film doesn't stand a chance:
1. No merchandise/comic book support from Marvel
2. No screening for critics
4. No buzz
5. Dark and gritty is the exact opposite of The Fantastic Four.
6. Rogue Nation is still dominant.
@dmxx116: Just don't go see the movie then. I haven't been thrilled by what I've seen of this either but I don't get the point of making post after post just to slam it. Griping about the movie isn't going to accomplish anything. The best way to voice your displeasure is to not give the box office any of your money for it.
The first reviews for the Fantastic Four Reboot:
I thought the review embargoes were in effect until tomorrow, August 5, but it looks like everyone is now breaking them.
Ouch, those first reviews aren't pretty. If the movie ends up bombing I wonder if Fox really will concede and give up the rights? I mean, theres a planned sequel but I can't imagine they'd be that stubborn.
It's kinda sad. Black Human Torch was an interesting idea but Doom being some kind of hacker? Egh...I saw the trailer with Mad Max and it was alright looking but I can't see myself going to this especially since I was already burned by the old movie.
