Default Re: The "Keep Hope Alive" (that the rights can revert back to Marvel) thread

A director was attached. We would hear little rumblings about what they were planning for the film, and many of the ideas were met with a fair amount of excitement from fans. The deadline for making a movie to keep the rights was rapidly approaching. Fan-base support for Fox making another film in the franchise was divided, and many wanted to rights to revert back to Marvel. FOX's previous two attempts at putting their property to film were critically panned and not very financially successful.

It was very much the same general climate. ...and what happened?

Fox dropped the ball and the rights reverted.

Don't give up hope.
the difference here is fox never really cared about DD

DD honestly could be made for 90- 100 million and a film that doesn't really scream summer blockbuster

while F4 is the definition of summer blockbuster it has space,huge cgi,spectacle,scope,super powers,sci fi,etc.

they obviously are more invested in F4 if they weren't they would of given up galactus and silver surfer for longer rights on DD like marvel purposed
