Kevin Feige To Oversee ‘X-Men’ Film Franchise

In the wake of the Disney/Fox merger, one of the biggest questions on fan’s minds were “what’s going to happen to the X-Men?” The answer is finally here, as Disney CEO Bob Iger has shed some light on the situation.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Iger said that Marvel Studios Head Kevin Feige would be overseeing the mutant superheroes:

“It only makes sense. I want to be careful here because of what’s been communicated to the Fox folks, but I think they know. It only makes sense for Marvel to be supervised by one entity. There shouldn’t be two Marvels.”
