New hints of an X-Men and Fantastic Four crossover movie

X-Men and Fantastic Four

(From Den of Geek)  Ever since Marvel found a way to successfully create an interlocking series of movies, all leading up to The Avengers, other studios have been trying to think of their own franchises along a similar template.

We’ve already heard that Wonder Woman will appear in next year’s Batman Vs Superman, with the possibility of her own solo outing if her character is deemed a success.

Then there’s the talk of establishing a Venom spin-off from the Spider-Man franchise, and the possibility of a Drew Goddard-helmed Sinister Six movie.

In a story over at The Hollywood Reporter, it’s suggested that Fox is looking to create a crossover movie with the X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises.

Writer and producer Simon Kinberg is quoted as saying, “I have a lot of ideas on how to build those brands and do what everybody is thinking of these days: Be like Marvel.”

That crossover’s heavily reliant, of course, on the success of 2015′s Fantastic Four, which is being directed by Chronicle’s Josh Trank and written by Kinberg himself.

It’s not the first time that talk has surfaced about such a crossover, and with good reason: Fox currently owns the rights to both properties, and if executed well, the financial rewards could be huge.

Or, as Fantastic Four producer Mark Millar puts it, “Marvel’s success is there to be emulated. It would be crazy not to.”
