I know this came up and then belly flopped just recently, but I thought you’d want to know….
Here’s a snippet from a new Hollywood Reporter piece on how Hollywood is crossover franchise crazy.
here even are plans for X-Men to star in crossover movies with the Fantastic Four, Fox’s other property licensed from Marvel. Simon Kinberg, who has worked on X-Men movies with Bryan Singer, will expand X-Men and Fantastic Four into a super-shared universe. “I have a lot of ideas on how to build those brands and do what everybody is thinking of these days: Be like Marvel,” Kinberg tells THR.
My position remains as it always did: it’s all but inevitable that Fox will try this at some point but I don’t think we have any real idea when. Could be years and years away. Or, more likely, the cross-pollination will only go as far as inor characters, locations, tiny bits of the mileu.
