The fact that the themes of each franchise contradict each other... the fact that the X-men have zero use of the Fantastic Four are both VERY intelligent facts. Forcing these two properties together is nothing but a cheap shot to make money, nothing more. When you're writing a film (something you obviously know very little about and ARE NOT INTELLIGENT UPON) you want to create similar/parallel themes, and bring about 2 larger than life groups in a way that flows, and that they actually compliment each other... not contradict the story.

this isn't like The Avengers.. where each hero is a separate entity.. with a common theme and thematic style that fits cohesive. This is a merging of 2 franchises that's entire stories and message they represent do not merge what so ever.. they contradict. It'd be a nightmare of a story to try to tell. The Fantastic Four would have to be greatly altered to fit in a X-men film world.

if you can't understand that concept... don't look at us and call it "unintelligent" look at yourself.

Speculation on rights issues is not a valid reason for why the FF can't team up with the X-Men.



And by that logic how would it not be downgraded by a world filled with giant green monsters, supersoldiers, Norse Gods/aliens, Extremis soldiers and all the other superhumans at Marvel/Disney?
But the X-men have no reason to fight ALIENS... they're mutants... who only dable in mutant affairs. That is how they are established. You have to greatly alter the film universe in order to do so

X Men and Fantastic Four can interact, but it has to be natural, not forced.

And I don't think they will have Franklin Richards in this movie, not with the way they are casting this movie.

ummm the Phoenix saga has already been adapted... it's called XMEN The Last Stand... the phoenix is part of jeans mutant ability... it won't be adapted with this current franchise. It's over and done.


the only way to do the F4 and X-men in a shared universe is rebooting them both and making humans fear the F4 as well.

Franklin/Onslaught is truly the only real tie.. but that's a long ways a way.. and quite alot of explaining to do. The themes of the films though do not mesh, and the F4 would have to be drastically changed.

It's one of the biggest complaints of the Marvel Universe in that the public are a joke... they fear mutants, praise F4 and Avengers... that logic doesn't make any sense on film

twasn't a good one

that being said though, again... you still have to establish the F4.. you can't just bring them in already existing and with baby franklin...

Days of Future Present probably wont be adapted on film anyway.. Onslaught would be far more likely if a cross-over were to happen. But again.. that'd be a long ways away and a lot of hoops to still go through to establish (and completely alter) the Fantastic Four in the X-men film universe.

It's not impossible. But The Fantastic Four would have to be even more altered than the X-men universe has on their own. And something tells me ... most of us don't want that.

Although I think the casting of Thing and the villains are the key to success, I also think that had James Cameron been able to get Avatar 2 done in time for a 2015 release, Fox would have let this movie sit on the back burner. The reason is simple: Avatar (despite IMO, a cheesy premise and a wooden performance from Sam Worthington) made a billion dollars for Fox.

Disney isn't all bad. I'm optimistic that Disney/Star Wars will go back to the awesomeness of the 70's trilogy (I thought the prequels were okay).

Marvel Studios has some issues, but it's not all bad.

Which had less to do with the FF then just Franklin as an Adult...

So I wouldn't characterize it a a true crossover

Both studios have ups and downs. I just don't get why people feel the need to root for one and hate the other. I love all the marvel characters and if they're placed in good movies I don't care who paid for them.

Surely you can understand why it would be more difficult to evolve FOX's X-Men series after seven films than it was for the MCU to do the same after two.

If the Mouse decides it is worth fighting against, it certainly is.

In the MCU there is one giant green monster (Blonsky is a different hue) one supersoldier (perhaps two or three if you include Red Skull and Bucky), one Norse God residing on earth and one Extremis soldier if Killian survived. Add Scorch, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch and you can still count them on two hands.

Compare that to the identifiable mutants:

Cyclops
Wolverine
Sabretooth
Storm
Professor X
Blinking Channel Changing Kid
Magneto
Jean Grey
Running on Water Kid
Rogue
Toad
Mystique
Lizard Tongue Kid
Nightcrawler
Iceman
Lady Deathstrike
Kitty Pride
Jubilee
Pyro
Siryn
Colossus
Beast
Juggernaut
Angel
Callisto
Multiple Man
Leach
Flea
Phat
Arklight
Kid Omega
Spike
Jumping Mutants (various)
Silverfox
Bolt
Gambit
Deadpool (kinda)
Blob
Wraith
Sebastian Shaw
Azazel
Angel Salvadore
Emma Frost
Riptide
Darwin
Banshee
Havok
Agent Zero
Quicksilver
Blink
Warpath
Sunspot
Bishop

I'm hoping you can see the difference, because I'm not sure how to make it any easier for you.

Fox doesn't need defending.. They need to make a profit. If thats how they want to attempt to do it by whatever changes they deem. They have their share holders to answer to when their greedy motives ask the question "We have Marvel Characters too. So why are we profiting as much from them like Disney"? (Check Profit margins from every MCU movie Pre and after the Avengers Budget vs WW BO #'s)

Most don't or haven't liked it

Were just trying to help..

For Christ sake, no one (well, hardly anyone) is HATING on poor widdle Fox. Virtually everyone that partakes in these threads is totally cool with Fox running the X-universe, and even looking forward to stuff like X-Force.

What we don't want is Fox shoehorning the FF in where they don't fit, which Fox fans don't seem to understand (presumably because they're too busy getting enraged and calling everyone Disney fanboys to think it all the way through)

You want to talk about bias? Hoping Fox is able to churn out another wretched FF movie and jam it sideways into the X-verse *just because*, is the only bias I'm seeing. And it's piss poor world-building as well.

Good grief.

With the FF inhabiting X-Men's world it seems like they're basing the team more on Ultimate FF, and the best way to go with them is probably to just show them explorers, instead of celebrities.

They're celebrities because they're Heros too and not just explorers.. So take that away from them too in this X-Universe?

yeah i love the x-franchise. Would i prefer a more comic accurate characterization/history of the team... Sure thing. But that's long gone and no longer worth complaining about. The films have been very enjoyable adaptations.

I think if fox did x-men 1 today it'd be alot different. Id just hate to see a altered F4 ala X-men universe while its still able to be prevented. In a time where we now can embrace the comic roots.

Can't put F4 in the Xuniverse without change. Change we should need

I think that right now the X-Men franchise is resembling the comics more, it even seems like they're trying to make the look closer too. The characters still need more attentiong though.

Yep, that seems like the way they're going.

I don't really have a problem with it, Jack Kirby's run is the reason why the FF are among my favorite heroes, but i also enjoyed Ultimate FF and wouldn't mind seeing that version of the team come to life. If the film succeeds the FF will be able to integrate the X-Men universe as Fox wants so much, but if it fails Marvel gets it back and can do the adult version of the team, since going the Kirby route will help them diferentiate from Fox's films even more easily.

Then just refer back to Singer when he was speaking on the MCU and how he felt that his X-men were a more serious tone and basically wouldn't fit. So if that's the case why would F4 which is notoriously light hearted. Whereas the tone in his resent trailer of the X-men feels more like a drama.

Kinberg's behind both Days of Future Past and FF. Pretty sure they'll have similar tones. And I'll take a serious tone over jokes every other minute (Iron Man 3, Thor The Dark World).
