FF is getting made. Whether it's better than the crapfest that Tim Story churned out remains to be seen; but make no mistake: FF is getting made.
You're absolutely right. Fox would never let a Marvel property slip through their fingers at the last minute, even if they made two previous films based on the property that didn't do well critically or even financially.
I mean...that's why they still own the rights to Daredevil. Right? ...RIGHT?
