X-Men

Marvel Studios and Marvel Television have been working together to tie the MCU universe together in one neat package. With the amount of characters they own, they are allowed to expand their shows and films under their collective universe, and who knows, maybe at one point we may even see Spider-Man in the picture. But for Fox, they are unable to sit at the Marvel table. However, they do own the rights to some pretty big name Marvel brands like X-Men and Fantastic Four.

With the success of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, and the Netflix series Daredevil on the small screen, and the CW and WB continuing to grow their DC universe with shows like Legends of Tomorrow, Fox wants in on the superhero television series action, and they want to do it with the characters they already own. Over at the TCAs, it has been revealed that there are plans for Fox to launch a live-action X-Men TV series.

More on the story below.

Flash Gordon

Matthew Vaughn, the director of Layer Cake, Stardust, Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, and Kingsman: The Secret Service, has entered into negotiations to direct a movie based on the classic comic strip Flash Gordon.

We found out a year ago now that 20th Century Fox had acquired the rights to try to make a movie based on the comic after multiple studios including as Universal, Sony, and others tried and failed to pull it off. At the time it was also revealed that J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, who penned a draft of the script for Star Trek 3 before Simon Pegg and Doug Jung took over, were penning Flash Gordon. That remains unchanged, with the duo having penned a draft based on a treatment by George Nolfi.

X-Men Header

Another TV show based on hit comic book characters could be on the way, with news that Fox is working on a small screen take on Marvel’s X-Men.

The network has 24 producers Evan Katz and Manny Coto on board, and they’ve set Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne to write the potential live-action series. McKay and Payne previously worked on the screenplay for Star Trek 3 before Simon Pegg and Doug Jung recently took over scriptwriting duties.

There is, however, a bit of a speedbump to overcome if X-Men the TV show is to become a reality.
