Kevin Feige Talks Future Beyond ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ Possibly Adding X-Men and Fantastic Four

Just because Avengers: Infinity War could be the end, doesn’t mean it will be the end. In the film, Thanos seeks to collect the all-powerful Infinity Stones to bring forth balance within the universe. The Mad Titan suffered a great tragedy when he couldn’t save his home planet of Titan, and now he believes that if he is to save the universe, he will have to destroy it.

So it’s unclear what kind of future the founding Avengers have beyond Infinity War. However, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige clearly has a plan. In anticipation for the film, Feige is talking about the future of the studio and the effect the Fox and Disney merger could have on their plans for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. More on the story, below.

SDCC 2017: ‘Legion’ Creator Noah Hawley Announces Doctor Doom Film

Doctor Doom

You’ll never know what kind of news will drop at SDCC. Take for instance what happened at Ballroom 20 this weekend. Fargo creator Noah Hawley was there to talk about Legion where he dropped a massive very newsworthy bomb on the audience. He told them that he was developing a project for Fox, and then followed it up with two words: Doctor Doom.

While we know Hawley is more than capable of handling comic book material, but an entire film about Doctor Doom seems out of the ordinary. But then again, it may be just the thing Fox needs to hold on to rights to the Fantastic Four. They’re going to need something like this, especially after Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four performed poorly with critics and audiences alike. More on the story below.

Roger Corman's Fantastic Four

Doomed! The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s The Fantastic Four
Official Website
Directed by Marty Langford
Starring Roger Corman, Oley Sassoon, and Chris Gore
Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment
Not Rated | 85 minutes
Release Date: October 11, 2016 (VOD) | December 20, 2016 (DVD)

In 1986, German film producer Bernd Eichinger (The Neverending Story) purchased the motion picture rights to Marvel Comics’ first family of bickering cosmic superheroes, the Fantastic Four. Eichinger envisioned making a classy, big-budget adventure with funding from a major studio and the latest in cutting edge visual effects, but no studio was interested. He had until New Year’s Eve 1992 to get the film into production or his rights would revert back to Marvel.

Rumor: Fox Considering X-Men Crossover With Marvel

X-Men and Avengers crossover

It took one disappointing franchise and a few leaked e-mails to find out that Sony was considering sharing Spider-Man with Marvel Studios. Though the character would remain with Sony, the eventual deal meant that the Webslinger could play in the Marvel sandbox, with a few caveats of course. But in the grand scheme of things, this would end up helping both parties as Spider-Man’s intro to the MCU turned out to be one of the best things about Captain America: Civil War, and now fans are eagerly looking forward to his next Sony movie, which will be produced by Marvel’s Kevin Feige.

So now as Marvel is entering Phase Three of their cinematic universe, Fox is looking towards the future for two of their own Marvel properties. However, both have produced rather disappointing results. Last year, Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four turned out to be one of the worst films of 2015, and despite Deadpool being a hit, X-Men: Apocalypse was a critical and commercial disappointment. So just as Sony hoped to turn things around with Spider-Man, there is a new rumor that says Fox may be considering the same thing with their Marvel properties, namely, X-Men. Check out the full details on the rumor below.

Check Out These Hilarious Homemade Spoof Trailers For 2015’s Biggest Movies

Avengers: Age of Ultron sweded trailers

Regardless of how movie marketing campaigns evolve to keep up with the changing times, trailers will always be one of the most crucial tools in the selling of a new film. A typical trailer for a major studio’s potential blockbuster and franchise hopeful tends to look the same as another of its type, from the editing beats to the choice of overdramatic music cues (not to mention that annoying and loud horn sound that can be traced back to Inception‘s brilliantly executed previews).

Naturally this opens the door for aspiring filmmakers and people with both a strong sense and access to pretty decent cameras and recording equipment to create their own improvised spoofs of those occasionally overbearing trailers. Putting their friends and relatives in front of the camera and using whatever materials available to them to recreate the multi-million dollar visual effects, the makers of these “sweded” trailers often end up with something far more entertaining than their inspirations.

I have taken it upon myself to scour YouTube for the funniest, most bizarre, and flat-out fun spoof trailers for the biggest blockbusters (and in one special case, a gigantic bomb), and as a special bonus I’ve included a few for some of 2016’s most anticipated movies. Enjoy, and have a happy new year!

Honest Trailer fantastic four

So unless you’ve been living under a rock all year, you’ve heard about or bore witness to the disaster that was Fantastic Four (aka Fant4stic); a movie so bad it registered a whopping 9% on Rotten Tomatoes, and got its director basically blacklisted from Hollywood. This is what Honest Trailers were made for! Screen Junkies narrator Jon Bailey even posts the career-ruining tweet in the introduction.

Check out the Honest Trailer below.

Fox Pulls ‘Fantastic Four’ Sequel Off Its Release Schedule

Fantastic Four Header

Don’t expect to see a sequel to Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four any time soon. The reboot was hit hard with reports of production problems ranging from disputes on the set, creative differences, destructive dogs, and controlling what could be said during the film’s press day. While Fox said they were focused on getting a sequel released with the potential to have a crossover with the X-Men film universe, the disastrous reviews from critic and fans alike showed that there was basically zero interest in seeing Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, and Michael B. Jordan continue on being Marvel’s first family – though it wasn’t really their fault.

Now there is a new report that says Fox has pulled the Fantastic Four sequel off its scheduled release. More on the story below.

Rumor: Marvel Studios Secures Rights To ‘Fantastic Four’ From Fox

The Fantastic Four movie 2015 team

This past summer, Fox attempted to revive Fantastic Four with a bold new vision. Starring a young diverse cast consisting of Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, and Michael B. Jordan, the film would be directed by Josh Trank, but a number of behind-the-scenes problems revealed that it was a troubled shoot. It wasn’t so much of “creative differences” that fueled the conflict, but the shocking allegations of “combative and abusive behavior” by the director, along with Trank reportedly trying to control what the cast could say during the film’s press day, not to mention that he had no faith in the film whatsoever.

In the end, the Fantastic Four reboot tanked at the box office and was widely panned by both critics and audiences, in such a way that it gave hope to the idea that the rights to Marvel’s first family may revert back to Marvel Studios. And that seems to be the case, as a hot rumor says Marvel has struck a deal with Fox to get the rights back to Fantastic Four. More on the story here below.

Simon Kinberg Is “Really Focused” On Getting ‘Fantastic Four’ Sequel Off The Ground

The Fantastic Four Michael B Jordan Human Torch with Simon Kinberg

Fox being limited to two Marvel properties doesn’t give them much room to play around with as opposed to their competitors Marvel Studios. Unless they can map out their cinematic universe or make a deal like Sony did with Marvel, then Fox is relegated to using just the Fantastic Four and X-Men properties. The former had a reboot recently, which just tanked at the box office and was panned by critics and audiences alike. Then, Fantastic Four‘s director Josh Trank came out a day before the film’s release criticizing Fox for their interference and claiming the studio prevented everyone from seeing his vision of the film. Days later, numerous production problems were revealed, and that Trank tried to control what the cast would say during the film’s press junket. Even a major scene that was shown in trailers was omitted from the final cut.

With Fantastic Four earning a bad reputation and low grossing box office numbers, it was almost certain that there was going to be no sequel. But leave it to Simon Kinberg to hold on hope. While helping promote The Martian at the Toronto International Film Festival, the producer talked about being “really focused” on making a “second one.” More on the possibility of Fantastic Four 2 in the story below.
