In Aug Hugh Jackman said that The Wolverine would be a "stand alone" film w/o a lot of mutants etc.
Then Millar comes in recently promoting The Wolverine as Mickey Mouse the starting point of the Fox Marvel Universe.
So which one is it?
"People keep saying that they want to see all of the Marvel Universe in one place, but what I try to explain to them is that if Marvel Studios had the rights to all the stuff set up at other studios, they wouldn't have the money to make all the other movies they're making. You wouldn't be getting 'Guardians of the Galaxy' or 'Ant-Man' because those slots would be filled up with a Wolverine movie or a Fantastic Four movie. There's only a finite amount of movies they can make."
It's quite interesting that someone at Fox is finally acknowledging this rising issue. But I don't think he's being completely truthful in this statement. Marvel licensed those properties to Fox during a period of desperation while trying to avoid bankruptcy. And Fox capitalized off of it via a 90 to 10% split in box office revenue and literally pennies off of DVD sales. Now does that sound like a deal Marvel Studios would make with Fox today? Speaking of money, wasn't it Fox's constancy of cutting corner$ that diminished their returns and quality in the first place?
Funny how he brings up Antman when recent news told us that Fox changed the Peanuts movie to the same date which will likely crush it.
Guess Marvel hasn't taken any of his calls.
