Superhero fans determined to see the X-Men in the Marvel Cinematic Universe might have to wait a little longer for that moment.
Now that the houses of Fox and Disney have joined, superhero fans are now chomping at the bit to see the Marvel characters previously owned by Fox join their compadres owned by Disney.
The first trailer for the next chapter in the X-Men series has been unveiled, revealing that fans are going to have to deal with the loss of a major character.
Disney is acquiring 21st Century Fox for $52.4 billion (£39bn) bringing hit franchises such as X-Men, Avatar, and The Simpsons into the House of Mouse.
2016 was an eventful year for comic book movies, with an array of successes, disappointments, and downright disasters. ‘Deadpool’ was one 2016’s success stories. While the first film’s writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were talking to Comicbook.com about their new sci-fi-horror ‘Life’, the pair commented on how ‘Deadpool 2’ would be cast imminently.
Spoilers! Major, huge spoilers for ‘Logan’ follow, so be warned and turned back if you’re yet to see the critically acclaimed superhero drama. ‘Logan’ director James Mangold has confirmed that he sowed the seeds for the new film’s heart-rending ending four years in his first X-Men spin-off ‘The Wolverine’.
It took just one trailer for Hugh Jackman’s final turn as Wolverine in ‘Logan’ to go from being a film many struggled to get excited about, to one they couldn’t wait to see. The film is unlike any superhero movie before it. Essentially a western, it’s grisly, astoundingly mature and director James Mangold can’t believe he got to make it.
