No "X-Men"/"Fantastic Four" Crossover

18 April 2014 9:46 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Earlier this week producer Avi Arad re-affirmed that there are no plans to crossover "The Amazing Spider-Man" franchise and its various spin-off films with any other Marvel universe movies like "The Avengers" at Marvel Studios or the "X-Men" films at 20th Century Fox.

Now, a 'well-placed source' for Schmoes Know says that rival Fox has no plans to merge its two big Marvel franchises - the "X-Men" movies and its upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot.

Their source claims Fox wants director Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" reboot to stand on its own without any help from the X-Men mutants, and hopefully do well enough to warrant multiple sequels. Fox may consider a crossover down the road, but there are no plans for it in the near future.

Mark Millar, who is working for Fox as a consultant on their Marvel movies, previously said that both franchises exist in the same universe but will not cross over. »

Producers Say Spider-Man Will Only Join X-Men or The Avengers When They Run Out of Ideas

18 April 2014 7:28 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

In a new interview with IGN, "The Amazing Spider-Man" producer Avi Arad revealed that the only way Spider-Man will end up in an "X-Men" film is when they completely run out of ideas. "I think it will take a moment in which we've run out of ideas," he explained. "There's so much to tell about Spider-Man. There's so much to tell about the Sinister Six. The relationship between Spider-Man and Venom will bring a whole other world in." Arad continued: "In the toy business we used to make toys glow in the dark when they weren't selling well and it gave at least another Christmas. We don't need it yet." Producer Matt Tolmach added that as soon as Spider-Man leaves his world and joins the "X-Men" or the "Avengers" franchises, it will feel like a gimmick. "If you were to do that, Spider-Man in the 'Avengers' is a stunt, »

Garfield's "Spider-Man" Will Never Crossover?

18 April 2014 10:51 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Keen to see Andrew Garfield's "The Amazing Spider-Man" character crossover with the X-Men or "The Avengers"? You'll be waiting a hell of a long time.

Producer Avi Arad, who has been attached to all five live-action "Spider-Man" films produced thus far, tells IGN that basically such a crossover will only happen after he's out of this franchise:

"I think I'm probably a little bit of the militant here. I think it will take a moment in which we've run out of ideas. There's so much to tell about Spider-Man. There's so much to tell about the Sinister Six. The relationship between Spider-Man and Venom will bring a whole other world in.

We really feel very confident that we have so much to do. Peter Parker is unique; he's really different. He's not an Avenger. He's not an X-Man. He's unique and we revere that. And we'd rather work really »

Secret Deal Behind 'Spider-Man' / 'X-Men' Post-Credits Revealed

16 April 2014 2:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, we reported that fans who stay to the end of Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 credits will be treated to a scene from 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past. While the scene does not tie the two franchises together, many have wondered why the rival studios would team up for this kind of cross-promotion, with speculation that they may be teaming up for some sort of superhero crossover in the future. Variety has a new report which reveals that a Spider-Man and X-Men hybrid movie is not in the works, and that there is a simple, contractual reason why this extra scene was added to prints of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

When The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb was in negotiations to make The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the talks hit a brief snag, since the filmmaker is still under contract to make one more movie with Fox Searchlight, »

Marvel Confirms It Has Rights to 'Daredevil' Villain Kingpin and Elektra

16 April 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in April 2013, Marvel Studios reclaimed the rights to Daredevil, after 20th Century Fox failed to get production started on their proposed reboot, which Joe Carnahan was at one time set to direct. What wasn't known at the time is whether Daredevil characters Kingpin and Elektra came with this deal. Today, Kevin Feige reveals in an interview with IGN that the studio does have the rights to Elektra in full and at least partial rights to Kingpin.

"Elektra I think we have. I think that was part of Daredevil, and that's clean and simple. Kingpin we either have or somehow share. I'm not 100 percent clear on that one."

Marvel currently has a shared rights deal for the characters Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch with 20th Century Fox, since these characters pop up in both the Avengers comics and the X-Men comics. The deal includes provisions that Marvel Studios can't reference the characters' X-Men history, »

'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Features 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Post-Credits Scene

16 April 2014 11:32 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In an interesting twist, Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox are working together to cross promote their upcoming Marvel movies, with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 featuring a post-credits action sequence from X-Men: Days of Future Past that is exclusive to the sequel's release in theaters.

While Post-Credits sequences have become expected as of late, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 decided to forgo any type of tease in setting up The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Its unclear if early fan outrage at this spurred the unique merging of these two Marvel films, but now, U.K. residents can see the sequence when the movie opens in theaters today, and U.S. audiences can see it when the film opens in the states on May 2nd.

The sequence does not tie the two films together in any way. It's merely a 'reward' for those who decide to stay seated throughout the credits. Empire first reported on the news, »

"X-Men: Days Of Future Past": 'Beast' Vs 'Magneto'

14 April 2014 9:12 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look at a brutal fight sequence between mutants 'Hank McCoy' aka the 'Beast' (Nicholas Hoult) and 'Erik Lehnsherr' aka 'Magneto' (Michael Fassbender) at an outdoor fountain on the set of "X-Men: Days of Future Past":

"Days Of Future Past" adapts Marvel Comics' "Uncanny X-Men" (1981) issues #141 and #142, written by Chris Claremont and illustrated by John Byrne.

That original story alternated between present day, in which the 'X-Men' fight the 'Brotherhood of Evil Mutants' led by mutant shape-shifter 'Mystique'...

...and a future timeline caused by the X-Men's failure to prevent the Brotherhood from assassinating 'Senator Robert Kelly':

"...the story begins 30 years in the future. In the 'present' the year is 1980, and 'Kitty Pryde' has just joined the X-Men. While in the 'future' 'Kate Pryde' is a middle-aged women running for her life, trying to meet up with an elderly 'Wolverine' in a now-destroyed New York City.

Eight Predictions For The Marvel Cinematic Universe

13 April 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach with eight predictions for the Marvel Cinematic Universe…

Through years of planning and a chain of successes Marvel Studios has delivered films that both excel at the box office and please their fans. Unlike the other superhero movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has all these characters existing in the same universe and crossing over into each other’s films – this started with Iron Man back in 2008 and the standalone films led to the first Avengers film which saw these extraordinary characters team up.

The success is trying to be imitated by Warner Bros. with the DC cinematic universe and Fox who have ambitions of a shared universe between X-Men and Fantastic Four – the only Marvel properties they own. Marvel Studios has definitely got it right though where the others fail. It is a great time for Marvel Studios and there is no sign of this slowing down any time soon. »

Nightcrawler #1 A Solid Back-to-Basics Issue

11 April 2014 8:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Writer: Chris Claremont

Artist: Todd Nauck

Colorist: Rachelle Rosenberg

Letterer: Vc’s Cory Petit

Standard Cover by Chris Samnee with Matthew Wilson

Published by Marvel Comics

Nightcrawler #1 sees the return to the X-Men Universe of both Nightcrawler, the teleporting fuzzy elf who first debuted in Giant Size X-Men #1 back in 1975, and Chris Claremont, the writer responsible for putting the X-Men on the map during his fifteen plus years writing Uncanny X-Men from the late seventies into the early nineties. Neither has fared well of late: Nightcrawler was killed off during 2007′s “Second Coming” story, offered up as that storyline’s requisite bit of event fodder before being recently resurrected in the opening arc of Jason Aaron’s Amazing X-Men spinoff title.  Chris Claremont’ latest significant return to the X-Men, X-Men Forever was met with both mediocre sales and fan reaction. It’s hard to call this issue a triumphant return for both, »

This Week's Cover: Inside this summer's superhero epic 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'

Two time periods. Six countries. More than a dozen stars. Hundreds of killer robots. It’s not hard to see why 20th Century Fox’s $200 million-plus X-Men: Days of Future Past is the priciest and most complicated X-Men film to date. “I think this is the biggest movie Fox has made that James Cameron didn’t direct,” says producer-writer Simon Kinberg (X-Men: First Class). Adds producer Lauren Schuler Donner, who’s worked on every X-Men film, “We have to deliver, and that’s really hard. Plus, we don’t use guns, we use powers. The power is a visual effect. »

8 female comic book characters who deserve their own movies

9 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's no secret that women have been neglected in comic book movies. Certainly, only a tiny number of female superheroes have so far made it to the big screen. Female leads are still shockingly rare, and even Joss Whedon only managed one out of six in his Avengers ensemble movie.

Things are looking up, with Scarlet Witch and Gamora coming to Avengers: Age of Ultron and Guardians of the Galaxy respectively, hints at a Black Widow solo outing, and Wonder Woman due to feature in the Batman vs Superman film - although, tellingly, not in her own movie.

It's time that the women of comics got some recognition. Here are our top picks from the many worthy candidates that we want to see in their own solo movies:

Wonder Woman

Who is she?

As if you need to be told. DC Comics's foremost heroine, she is a feminist icon »

Inside 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' -- And Sony's strategy to supersize its franchise

8 April 2014 11:33 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

This appeared in the April 4 issue of Entertainment Weekly.

With Great Marketing comes great responsibility. In December, Sony released its first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 — the idea, as always, being to spill exactly the right number of secrets and not half a secret more. “I was nervous about it,” says director Marc Webb. “But we wanted to raise the stakes. We want people to appreciate the scope of what’s to come both in this movie and in subsequent films.” So fans saw their friendly neighborhood Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) swinging exuberantly between the gleaming skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan. »
