Is The Future Between Marvel And 20th Century Fox In Trouble?

Outsiders - November 09, 2016

Is the future and relationship between 20th Century Fox and Marvel in trouble as the two studios are currently hitting a bumpy crossroad when it comes upcoming movies and the actors who have appeared in the movies.

With the summer release of X-Men: Apocalypse, directed by Bryan Singer, the film only earned $544 million worldwide, a sharp drop from the $748 million made by previous entry X-Men: Days of Future Past. With this release, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Nicholas Hoult have come to the end of their three-picture contracts. Both studios have to look if they want to have them return and pay them a larger salary or to get new talent and hope for the best?

The Wolverine spinoff series winds down with Logan, which is meant to be the last with Hugh Jackman. Do the studios replace Jackman or finally put the franchise to rest?

The studios are also having problems with getting new movies off the ground such as with Gambit, a solo spinoff movie to star Channing Tatum. Production failed to start this year as planned and in August lost its director, Doug Liman.

The latest blow up is with the sequel for Deadpool with Deadpool director Tim Miller pulling out after feuding with star Ryan Reynolds. This lead to composer Tom Holkenborg soon following. John Wick's David Leitch is now in negotiations and Fox already is planning Deadpool 3, readying a filmmaker search for a storyline that will involve another X-team, X-Force, say sources.

Fox does see big things when it comes to The New Mutants, a spinoff featuring superpowered teens with some overlap with the flagship X-Men. According to sources, director Josh Boone could even begin rolling cameras by spring.

As for the previously mentioned, The X-Men franchise is being overseer with Simon Kinberg as producer and writer, working on a new script. Bryan Singer, who directed four X-Men movies, will not be returning but the script is being written with Lawrence, Fassbender and McAvoy optimistically in mind.

We can only wait and see what will become of these problems but the bigger question remains is if comic book movies still have a future or should they just remain in the past?
