Definitely agree with u, that Fox were dragging their feet when it came to getting Daredevil made. But after seeing Joe Carnahan's pitch u have to admit that's something u would want to see. And at Marvel its something that we not likely to get.

Right now I love the direction Marvel is taking with their characters, I love the MCU, and I love everything that is happening with phase two. But Marvel isn't going to allow someone to come in and take a character and do something unique, like Nolan did with Batman, where u take a character in create a world for that character, that's set apart from the MCU. Where as if Carnahan approached Fox a little earlier or whatever, his pitch would stand a better chance of getting greenlit at Fox as opposed to Marvel. Are we going to see a R-Rated Marvel film in future? I wouldn't think so...

Yes Fox made some horrendous mistakes in the past (Last Stand, Wolverine Origins) but between Tom Rothman leaving (chairman of Fox, who was behind a lot of the reasons why, Last Stand and Origins were so bad), and Fox hiring Mark Millar as their superhero consultant is two steps in the right direction.

Looking at The Wolverine, and all the news coming out from that film, it certainly seems like that will be a good film, and DOFP, well that's DOFP!!

After Avengers, every studio that has a superhero film, will certainly make sure that its done right, that's why I'm giving Fox the benefit of the doubt. And forgiving them for past mistakes if they can deliver with the next 2 X films, and hopefully that leads into a X4, X:FC 2, X-Factor, X-Force a Cable, Deadpool film etc... They have the opportunity to grow their own X-Men Universe, and if they do a good job, then ill be happy with it.

the FF's right should revert back to Marvel though, they will be better in the MCU. but then again Josh Trank is on board for that and if Fox allows him freedom to tell his story, then I'm sure that will be fine.
Sorry I could've worded that better. Didn't mean to come off so erratic.

I mean we do at least agree about FF's future.

However the whole Mark Millar's in, Tom Rothman's out news just sounds like smoke in mirrors to me. Fox's Marvel films are under Donner's production team. And seeing her late husbands work. Donner should know better.

And if it was Rothman that was tying her hands together all these years then why isn't this apparent now. All we've got is Millar parroting about Marvel/Disney's success instead of coming up with some of their own unique idea's.

So no I'm tying to see the bigger picture hear and the fact is that X-men is and always has been under "The Donner's Company". Rothman wasn't overshadowing these films to the degree that most choose to assume. Is was Singers idea to give them black trash bag suits ala The Matrix and Donner was okay with it. So there was no real creativity even then.

Fox's comic book film team has never been trend setters from the start. And remember that it was Avi who practically begged them to take on franchise from the start.

It's only dawning on them now that there's big business in Comic book films. Which as a fan I think shouldn't be tolerated at this point.
