    According to investor insight website The Motley Fool, the company plans to bring their Josh Trank-helmedFantastic Four reboot and their highly profitable X-Men franchise – next up is X-Men: Days Of Future Past in 2014, with X-Force, X-Men: Apocalypse and The Wolverine 2 also in development – together in one movie.


    The site reports that, “Based on a 1987 four issue comic called Fantastic Four Vs X-Men, the movie will see the characters against each other because of secrets regarding the Fantastic Four’s origin.â€
    When it comes to branding and long-term strategy, investors and shareholders are often the first to know the facts, so this definitely holds more water than the usual fan-baiting rumours.

    There’s definitely been a lot of talk about bringing the Fantastic Four and X-Men movies closer together – Fox superhero guru Mark Millar has admitted they take place in a shared universe and X-Men: Days Of Future Past screenwriter Simon Kinberg has come on board to tidy up the Fantastic Four script.
    X-Men: Days Of Future Past is released on 18 July 2014.

    No more Punisher movies.

    However, The Punisher would make a potentially interesting tv series on HBO or Cinemax.

    But instead they opt for garbage like Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist.

    That shit is gonna flop as bad as the Shield show has, you assholes at Marvel.

    Get it together.

    so basically they don't think a stand alone Fantastic Four movie would work

    let's see how good DoFP is first.

    Too bad Marvel can't get FF back, it would be great for the continuity of the marvel universe as supporting characters.

    Meh. 10-12 main characters. How much character development could they do? Little to none.

    Still, might be some meaningless popcorn action fun. I'll probably just wait for it on Netflix.

    These movies should be about action and fun...

    if people want character development they should read that damn comics.

    its character development that made the first Hulk movie such a fucking snore...


    I want to see The Thing fight Wolverine like Thor and Hulk went at it

    agreed. says a lot that after over 20 years and 3 movies the best they have is an independently produced short by Thomas Jane

    [video=youtube;bWpK0wsnitc]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWpK0wsnitc[/video]


    With Punisher falling back to Marvel Studio's why not Approach Netflix or Amazon and let Jane make an episodic adult take on the character.
