Given the success that 20th Century Fox has had with its X-Men properties lately, not to mention its upcoming plans, only a fool would have bet that Marvel would end the year having regained the rights to the mutant superheroes (and the Fantastic Four), but that is exactly what has happened following Disney’s huge acquisition of Fox’s film and TV assets. “Bringing Disney and Fox together will combine some of the world’s most iconic entertainment franchises,” said Disney on the deal. “[It] provides Disney with the opportunity to reunite the X-Men,

Stan Lee and Rob Liefeld comment on Disney’s acquisition of X-Men and Fantastic Four

Earlier this week it was announced that Disney has finalised a deal to purchase the movie and television assets of 20th Century Fox, which means that both X-Men and Fantastic Four are now at the disposal of Marvel Studios and its Cinematic Universe.

This is of course great news for Marvel fans who have been longing for a fully-fledged Marvel universe to match that of the comic books, and their excitement is shared by comic book legend Stan Lee, who released the following statement to Newsarama:

“A truly great piece of news! Now Characters such as The X-Men and The Fantastic Four can come home to the place where they belong! It’s vitally important to have the Marvel characters under one roof. And now, as great as they were before, I can’t wait to see the wonders that will unfold!”

What Does Stan Lee Think Of The Fox/Disney Deal?

It’s official. Disney now owns 21st Century Fox and its high-profile film franchises after concluding a deal worth $52.4 billion. It’s a monumental and game-changing piece of business that’s set to alter the landscape of cinema and comic book movies forever. Heck, this means that Disney now owns 27% of the entire film industry. Subsequently, it means that Marvel holds the rights to the likes of the X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool again.

With these characters back in the House of Idea’s playpen, anything is truly possible now in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU) and we should start seeing it expanding and including all these new players in the not-too-distant future. That said, due to the nature and pace of the industry, some of them might take a little while to enter the fray, while others could be primed and ready to make their McU debuts as soon as possible.

"The New Mutants" - New Footage

Sneak Peek more new footage from the next "X-Men" movie spin-off, the PG-13 live-action feature "The New Mutants" based on the Marvel Comics' series, opening April 13, 2018, in what will be the first in a trilogy of Fox/Marvel 'horror' movies:

"Held in a secret facility against their will, five new 'mutants' have to battle the dangers of their powers, as well as the sins of their past. They aren’t out to save the world — they’re just trying to save themselves."

"We are making a full-fledged horror movie set within the 'X-Men' universe," said director Josh Boone.

"There are no costumes. There are no super-villains. We’re trying to do something very, very different."

Regarding which "New Mutants" comic the movie will adapt, Boone confirmed:

"We had loved Bill Sienkiewicz’s run with Chris Claremont that had 'Demon Bear'. It was really dark, interesting, and different

Deadpool Creator Weighs In On Potential R-Rated Marvel Movies

Nine years ago, the notion of an R-rated Marvel movie would have verged on wishful thinking. But with the über-popular McU fast approaching its 10th anniversary and Disney now in control of Fox, a hard-r Marvel flick is within arm’s reach of becoming a reality. Seriously.

Disney CEO Bob Iger said as much during his call to investors earlier this morning, when Iger also teased plans to weave the X-Men, Deadpool and the Fantastic Four into the fabric of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s something that likely won’t take shape for another two-to-three years, meaning the McU will be largely unaffected as it ramps up for the super-sized Avengers 4 in 2019.

Meanwhile, Fox still has The New Mutants, Deadpool 2 and Dark Phoenix lined up for 2018, though if Marvel decides to cherry-pick one or two X-Men characters and bring them into the fold, we imagine the Powers That Be

15 Things We Learned About ‘The New Mutants’ from the Ccxp Panel in Brazil

While attending the Fox panel at this year’s Ccxp (Comic-Con Experience) in Sao Paulo, Brazil, The New Mutants director Josh Boone, Alice Braga (Dr. Cecilia Reyes), writer Knate Lee, Henry Zaga (Sunspot), and artist Bill Sienkiewicz shared some new information about the much-anticipated movie during their Q&A with Erico Borgo from Omelete. As you’ve now seen in the great-looking first trailer, New Mutants is a completely different kind of X-Men movie, and it’s certainly following the path Fox set up with Deadpool and Logan in that it breaks the mold.

The Bryan Singer Timeline: a History of Allegations and Defenses, from Troubled Films to Sexual Assault Claims

The Bryan Singer Timeline: a History of Allegations and Defenses, from Troubled Films to Sexual Assault Claims
Bryan Singer has had a ruinous week. On December 4, 20th Century Fox fired Singer from the Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” for abandoning the London set; on December 6, the studio announced Dexter Fletcher as his replacement. In a statement, Singer ascribed his absence on “Bohemian Rhapsody” to caring for an ailing parent, but Fox also declined to renew its long-term deal with Singer’s production company, while his longtime publicist cut ties a few months ago.

And then, on December 7, Singer hit the news cycle again: In a lawsuit filed by attorney Jeff Herman, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman accused Singer of sexually assaulting him in 2003, when Sanchez-Guzman was 17.

All of this represents a tremendous comedown for Singer, a blockbuster director whose films have made over $1 billion in domestic release alone.

Ryan Reynolds Is Ready for a Deadpool and Mickey Mouse Team-Up

Ryan Reynolds Is Ready for a Deadpool and Mickey Mouse Team-Up
Scary but true, Deadpool 2 could arrive under the Disney banner. But we doubt a lick of it will be changed. Ryan Reynolds has channeled his inner Wade Wilson while weighing in on this possible merger between Disney and Twentieth Century Fox. Speculation about the merger has reached fever pitch, with many insiders predicting that the deal can be finalized as early as next week. This has prompted some excitement and fear among the hardcore Marvel fans. On one hand, we could possibly see some X-Men crossover in the McU, which fans have wanted to see since the inception of the true Marvel movie universe. On the other hand, many are concerned that Disney would try and sanitize characters like Deadpool.

Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter to poke some fun at the idea of the possibly pending merger by contrasting the difference between Deadpool and Disney's mascot. Reynolds retweeted a story

Wolverine Wednesday #7

Before I get into my reviews I want to talk about the recent news regarding Wolverines return from the dead. After his appearance on Legacy #1 it has been confirmed that the original 616 continuity Wolverine will be back with us very soon. The road to his return starts in January 2018. He will appear in a series of ‘post credit scenes’ in key titles Captain America #697, Mighty Thor #703 and Amazing Spider-Man #794. Now I am a Wolverine completest but I can say right now I will not be buying these three issues or any other issues with Wolverine ‘post credit scenes’. Call me old fashioned but one of the premier X-Men should return in an X book or one of the two Wolverine titles. Of course after these ‘post credit’ appearances that could still happen and I hope we get a larger story involving his return in the two Wolverine titles or mini.

The New Mutants Poster Features Anguished Faces in Peril

  • DailyDead
Although he's on horror fans' radars right now for his in-the-works film adaptations of Stephen King's The Stand, Revival, and King and Peter Straub's The Talisman (as well as a TV series adaptation of Clive Barker's The Great and Secret Show), filmmaker Josh Boone's next big screen story comes from the land of Marvel Comics, and although it features future superheroes, the poster for the movie (much like its trailer) promises strong ties to horror.

You can check out the new poster below, which was unveiled on the film's official Facebook page (with the caption "the only thing you have to fear... is yourself") and pays tribute to A Nightmare on Elm Street with the imagery of faces coming through the wall.

In a previous interview with EW, Boone said that The New Mutants movie will be "a full-fledged horror movie set within the X-Men universe.

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Gets An Awesome Animated Remake

After months of waiting, the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War hit the web last week and instantly went viral, breaking records to become the most-watched preview ever. Since then, fans have got creative with some nifty recreations of the teaser. One individual imagined what a Disneyfied take on the film would be like, for instance, and today, another has put together an awesome shot-for-shot recreation which uses clips from Marvel’s animated TV universe from the 1990s in place of the familiar McU stars.

It’s an impressive piece of work from YouTube user Darth Blender, with some shots being pretty uncanny matches for the moments from the live-action action trailer. It also offers a welcome hit of nostalgia for longtime Marvel lovers who adored these cartoons when they were kids. Though they weren’t exactly the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the House of Ideas’ many animated shows from the

Infinity War Trailer Gets a 90s Animated Makeover and It's Awesome

Infinity War Trailer Gets a 90s Animated Makeover and It's Awesome
Christmas came early for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe when the Russo Brothers dropped the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War late last week. The trailer instantly became the most viewed trailer in YouTube history, smashing records for a single 24-hour period with over 230 million views and over 1 million likes. The previous record holder was Andres Muschietti's big screen adaptation of Stephen King's It at 190 million views in 24 hours. Needless to say, the trailer release was kind of a big deal and now it has been given the ultimate tribute: a 90s-animated version of the trailer made from the Marvel cartoons of the 1990s and it's awesome.

The 1990s gave us successful Marvel cartoons like X-Men: The Animated Series and Spider-Man: The Animated Series. In addition, there were a lot of somewhat less popular, but still successful, Marvel animated shows from this fertile period to draw from, including Iron Man,

Batman, X-Men and Tmnt voice actors teaming for The Gang’s All Here

THR is reporting that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles voice actor Rob Paulsen has enlisted Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series), Cal Dodd (X-Men: The Animated Series) and director Andrea Romano (Batman: The Animated Series) for the new animated project The Gang’s All Here.

According to the site, the project has been conceived as a comedic series targeted towards adults and adolescents, and “enters on an animal cast of actors as they star in their own films and navigate the pitfalls of the entertainment industry.”

Batman voice actor Conroy is set to voice two animals – a bookworm bear called Frances and a superhero dog called Barkley. Dodd – who voiced Wolverine on the 90s X-Men series – will portray a pig commando called Sargent Snout, with Paulsen playing the warthog Patches and Romano as Meryl, the feline sidekick to super-dog Barkley.

Paulsen has developed the project with up-and-coming screenwriter Byron Burton, and

X-Men: The Animated Series Showrunner Has An Idea For Season 6

Kids these days have got it made when it comes to superheroes. Not only can you not move for high quality, big screen adventures, but there’s a constant stream of fun cartoon adaptations on TV, too. Back in the 90s, though, we couldn’t afford to be so choosy. Superhero cinema was extremely hit and miss, leaving us with the consolation prizes of Batman: The Animated Series and X-Men: The Animated Series.

The latter ran for an impressive 76 episodes (and had an amazing theme tune, too), but sadly left us on a cliffhanger in September 1997 with an injured Charles Xavier leaving Earth for a life with Shi’ar Empress Lilandra. Now, in an interview with Syfy Wire, showrunner Eric Lewald was asked what his plans would have been if the series had continued for a sixth season, and here’s what he said:
