yes, it's not a controversy, in terms of both studios having the legal right to use them
but it is a pretty d*** move, on someone's part, most likely Fox, as I doubt singer is actively trying to screw Marvel
Even if you want to consider the timing of Singer's tweet to be a little bit suspect, it doesn't matter
because, as I said, how/when one studio exercises its usage rights to the characters has absolutely zero bearing on how/when the other studio exercises its usage rights to the characters.
@Mr. Dent: I read the article to which you're referring and didn't see anything in it that says that Quicksilver is only going to be used for one scene; all it says is that there's one specific scene for which he's ideally suited and in which he will be prominently featured. End. of. Story.
