Very true, the domestic market is becoming a much harder nut to crack for many stalwarts of the past. Thankfully for fans of these films who are more loyal - or forgivable of past mistakes with certain franchises then the GA, studios are incresingly motivated by the expanding markets in the east who have a big appetite for spectacle.

MTV says that F4 X-Men crossover is bs.

"After multiple movies in their respective franchises, Fox has now decided to combine the Fantastic Four and the X-Men for an 'Avengers'-style movie that could pay off huge for shareholders. Based on a 1987 four issue comic called Fantastic Four vs. X-Men, the movie will see the characters against each other because of secrets regarding the Fantastic Four's origin."

Which sounds fantastic, except it's simply not true.

When reached for clarification, the writer of the article cited two sources for his information: an article on news-site GeekExchange about Simon Kinberg's FOX deal; and the Wikipedia article for "Fantastic Four vs. X-Men."

The GeekExchange article does three things that could have indicated a crossover movie: the sub-headline, which teases a "possible X-Men crossover;" re-quoting Millar's statement about how the franchises should cross over, without his retraction; and posting the cover to Marvel Comics' "Fantastic Four Versus The X-Men #1."

While all of that might potentially indicate we're in for an epic movie if you skimmed the article, it's easy to miss this sentence between a picture from "Days of Future Past," and the comic book cover:

"While Days of Future Past hits theaters in a few months, the Fantastic Four reboot has yet to add any cast or plot points that could suggest a shared universe, but it's still early."

So even that story doesn't completely cop to the idea that there's any sort of crossover in the works. As for the plot details listed on The Motley Fool, as Wikipedia backs up that is, in fact, the plot of the comic book miniseries. However, given there's no actual movie in the works, even if there was there's no indication it will draw directly on the comic.

Therefore, the rumor simply isn't true. There's no crossover currently announced, and there's certainly no movie titled "Fantastic Four vs. X-Men," based on the limited series of the same name. It's all down to some possible quick skimming, and conclusions drawn that left out (or simply didn't research) basic facts and retractions.

That doesn't mean FOX isn't developing the idea behind the scenes, and given the success of "Marvel's The Avengers," it certainly makes sense that they would. But there's no actual information from FOX, or even Millar or Kinberg to back that up. Point being: don't believe everything you read on the Internet, kids. Except for this article. Believe this one.
Millar said pretty bluntly awhile back in August this crossover film is not happening.

I keep seeing 'news' that X-Men & FF movies are crossing over. No, they're not. They exist in same universe but movies stand alone.
