It’s the 19th day of the month. I have a long post going up tomorrow, and frankly, I haven’t had the chance to read it over thirty times before posting it. So I can’t find myself comfortable hitting publish.
I have promised one new post per day for as long as I can go. So far today makes that 18 in a row. I don’t intended to stop anytime soon. But doing so does require me to play around with posts I normally would upload.
I was sitting at my computer desk watching some YouTube, and while casually browsing through my twitter feed, I noticed someone had retweeted a gif from the new X-Men movie, Dark Phoenix. My first thought, ‘why is this still be released?’
I’ve been struggling to write something lately. All the ideas I had, have eventually been deleted and started fresh. But that’s just me. Anyway, in the past week I came down with a cold. Runny nose, sore throat, headaches with body aches and pains and just had a complete lack of energy and motivation. But as I slowly came out of my sickness, it got me thinking about a few things and then my train of thought got very weird. Allow me to let you in.
Welcome back for the final part of the, look I will be completely honest here. I don’t have a cool title for this little mini series here. I could have called it the Fox/Disney merger, or the X-Men/Fantastic Four MCU merger. It should have had a fun and punny titled. Instead I named it after the Phases the MCU uses. It allowed me to number them, and also not confuse people with the numbering for the posts in a row thing I’ve got going on.
Welcome to part two of the untitled multi part thing I’ve got going on here. Yesterday I discussed one possible way I would introduce the X-Men/Fantastic Four characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Today I present the second suggestion/idea/theory. This one is a little longer.
I am pretty sure Disney now owns the film rights to FOX properties which include X-Men and Fantastic Four, so what happens from here?
Producer, Kevin Feige, has been the man behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) since its inception way back in 2008 when Iron Man was released in cinemas across the world. Since then, the MCU has managed to pump out 20 plus films, with more in active production and grossed over $17 billion at the box office making it the most successful film franchise of all time.
