Unless you’ve been off the grid, chances are you’ve heard of 20th Century Fox selling most of its assets to Disney. The move has been widely debated and speculated in the entertainment industry-and geek circles as well.
Should the Disney/Fox merger come to pass, Marvel Studios would own film rights to the Fantastic Four and the X-Men. The latter has fans salivating, as many would like to see how the merry mutants are integrated into this world of gods, aliens, and magic.
However, they shouldn’t count their chickens before they hatch. Long term Marvel Studios producer Kevin Feige said the following during the Produced By press conference earlier today:
“I’m just sitting, waiting for a phone call to say yay or nay, but obviously it would be nice to have access to that entire library.”

Seeing as the merger may not be a done deal until 2019, that makes sense. Fans will have to wait a little longer to see if Spider-Man and Wolverine share the big screen together.

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
Avengers: Infinity War is now playing, while the Untitled Avengers 4 hits theaters on May 3rd, 2019.
