Disney CEO Bob Iger has affirmed that the X-Men, Deadpool, and the Fantastic Four will join the Marvel Cinematic Universe otherwise known as. the MCU. As already announced, Disney’s eagerly awaited procurement of 21st Century Fox has at long last been affirmed, with the Mouse House spending billions for a sizeable lump of Rupert Murdoch’s TV and film resources. This basically implies any properties that beforehand had a place with Fox are presently in the hands of Disney – and critically for devotees of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this incorporates both the X-Men and Fantastic Four establishments. Before the approach of the MCU, Marvel sold off some of its key characters to different studios including Spider-Man, the X-Men and the Fantastic Four. This kept any of the related superheroes showing up in Marvel’s own particular wide screen yield. In 2015 in any case, Marvel Studios achieved a concurrence with Sony to bring Spidey once more into the overlap, bringing about the web-slinger’s appearance in Captain America: Civil War and a performance motion picture, Spider-Man: Homecoming. While this development has been widely expected ever since the deal was announced, official confirmation that the likes of Wolverine and Mr. Fantastic will soon be fighting evil alongside Iron Man and Thor is very reassuring indeed. The fact that Iger includes Deadpool in his claim is even more of a pleasant surprise, as Mr. Pool’s potty mouth and penchant for gruesome deaths doesn’t exactly gel with the Disney ethos. Nevertheless, the studio has already declared itself willing to continue with a R-Rated line of Marvel movies.

Fox had two attempts at building a Fantastic Four franchise and neither was particularly successful. It will surely be fascinating to see how Marvel Studios themselves bring the iconic group to the big screen, particularly given their prominence in a number of landmark comic story-lines. Although Fox had far more success with the X-Men franchise, its primary series of films has been on somewhat of a downward trend – and with the excellent Logan bringing an end to Hugh Jackman’s popular incarnation of Wolverine, the time could be ripe for Marvel’s Mutants to be given an MCU makeover in the next few years. With all that said, there is an element of concern regarding Disney’s continued acquisition of other studios, as Hollywood could soon find itself in a position where the Western movie industry is dominated by a single company. Although Disney’s purchases have yet to negatively impact the quality and diversity of movies such as those within the Star Wars and MCU franchises, it could eventually stifle filmmakers’ creativity if so many huge movie properties were to be gathered under a single Mouse-shaped roof.
