Last year it was announced that Disney was merging with Fox, shocking the world and igniting the imaginations of millions as we began to envision what a Disney/Fox world in entertainment could look like. Well, as of 12:01am this morning the merger is officially complete and I’m so excited!
That means seeing the Fantastic Four and X-Men as part of the MCU and who knows what other surprises is unbelievably close and I am pumped!
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day.
The Avengers-era is quickly coming to an end and that means the people behind the Marvel machine have to come up with new ideas to keep the Marvel movies cranking out every year while preventing the franchise from becoming stale to moviegoers. Well, now that Disney has bought Fox it’s inevitable that some of Fox’s assets will definitely be embraced in the MCU such as the X-Men. Ever since the first Avengers film I have hoped and dreamed for the moguls behind Marvel Studios to bring their superhero expertise to that side of the superhero world.
I’ve only watched a couple of X-Men films (X-Men: Days of Future Past and Logan) and I found both of them to be very dry and boring. I preferred Days of Future Past over Logan because at least it was an interesting story and it had me engaged whereas Logan was simply a giant, never-ending love letter to Hugh Jackman’s retiring of the mantel, Wolverine.
Now that Disney has bought Fox however I foresee some great ideas that could be brought to the MCU and I’m here to share them with you. Enjoy!
1. The Fantastic Four
As a child I absolutely loved the Fantastic Four. They were the ultimate superheroes and I loved their first movie. A few years ago they tried to make another version of the quadruple super team and it was an utter flop. Now the MCU has taken over Fox and one of the assets I would love to see them utilize would be the Fantastic Four.
One of the reasons why these Marvel films have been able to continue on for ten years straight is because of the actors they’ve gotten for the roles. Robert Downey Jr. embodied Iron Man so well I can’t imagine anyone else in the role. Chris Evans is Captain America. They got Benedict Cumberbatch to play Doctor Strange?! Genius The list could go on and on but you get the point. Marvel’s casting has been on point in every film they’ve made so far (besides The Incredible Hulk but that’s a whole other story.)
I would love to see what the new Marvel version of the Fantastic Four would look like because I know for a fact it would be incredible. And imagining them alongside superheroes such as Doctor Strange or Black Panther sounds even more amazing.
