Fox in the Tom Rothman era is over. (Thank god.) With the blockbuster success Marvel enjoys now with the Avengers franchise and subsidiaries, under the aegis of the House of Mouse, Fox realizes now that the old model of superhero movies is no longer applicable. They show every intention of making their Marvel projects more fan-accessible and "authentic" to canon, and righting wrongs such as Tim Story's FF, X-Men Origins, and The Last Stand.

I think the brief pissing match they had with Marvel Studios over the rights to Galactus and Surfer indicate they intend to reboot the characters. In fact, they *have* to make a movie featuring them soon, if they want to retain the rights.

And if they give Surfer his own movie, it gives them the opportunity to expand into their own version of Cosmic Marvel, which will be *very* necessary for the majority of FF stories, as well as bringing the Sh'iar mythos into the X-Universe.


...They move like slick cotton on oil.
