Worked with Daredevil, Ghost Rider and the Punisher. And remember, it cost millions to produce a movie and as I remind everyone, Fant4stic bombed in the box office and Fox would hesitate to invest too much money on a failing franchise.

So from my perspective, Disney should try to exercise legal wrangling by claiming Fant4stic was a contract violation and get the rights back that way. Tie it up in the courts. At the very least it would prevent Fox from making another one.
HELL YES. DO it Marvel. I mean Scott.

Exactly, so they own the live movie rights in perpetuity unless they default or disney pays up. I'm fairly certain they aren't defaulting so that leaves only one option. We can disagree, but the price now would be higher, and like I said, I find it hard to argue otherwise, but you can believe what you want, it's not like either one of us can prove the other wrong since it's a hypothetical.

We have had major talks about legal rights on these threads. I have become a mini expert on it haha. Fox did not breach or default on the contract with Fan4stic. I talked to a lawyer sometime ago and - he didn't have a view on the contracts, of course - but one thing that could be done is taking them to court to try to renegotiate the initial terms since conditions have changed. That would still be a hairy, costly, and lengthy trial that everyone involved would prefer to avoid, with no guarantees of the prosecution winning. Disney's best option, if they want any rights Marvel gave away back, is to pay up.
GORRAM IT!!!!!!!

SO we are going to have a countdown to 2022. Frakkin 5 years. Fox needs to NOT be in production for a FF movie between 2020-2022. By 2023, the rights will revert if they haven't released a movie in theatres by then.

It's totally out of the question. Especially for Fantastic Four.

Or they can wait for rights to expire and get them back that way like many other properties. Let's actually see if Fox goes through with new Fantastic Four films in the next five years.

Yup, and those rights reversions didn't cost Marvel anything.

Well I guess it will work out since Phase 3 is going to end in 2020...I feel like the MCU will feel a bit stale by then and all of a sudden the Fantastic Four will inject it with renewed excitement in 2020-2022!

Stan Lee spoke at a comic convention in Nashville about the character rights that Marvel doesn't own:

Quote:
“Sooner or later, they’re going to get the rights back to all our characters. They’re working on it, and they’re still making X-Men movies and stuff. Don’t worry about it. You’ll get more Marvel superheroes than you’ll have time to look at in the next few years.”

Fun fact:

If you watched the "Doomed" documentary (highly recommended for any CBM fans), he said the same thing in the early 90s, right after the 1994 FF movie grab by Corman IIRC.

That's been rumored for a while, but good to see something official. I haven't bought any comic books since Ultimate FF, but I might buy this one to see where they go with it.

I wouldn't count on Stan Lee being in the loop for behind the scenes info on film rights.

I remember how everyone thought that when the previous F4 comic was canceled it was because Marvel wanted to torpedo the film. But while the film in marketing and release, the F4 were taking center stage in a massive company wide crossover. After which Doom got his own series. Now they kept Thing and Torch out of it just long enough so that bringing them back will get people excited.

I bet you this has nothing to do with the film rights.

Sadly I don't think Stan has really been I the know for a long long time. His general involvement these days I think is more customary than anything concrete.

For the most part, he's a fan. He's saying what all of us are saying, thinking, hoping.

The difference is, he has sat down for dinner with Kevin Feige, Bob Iger etc. He at least knows from first-hand experience that Marvel still wants all the rights and is continuing their steady push that will... eventually... accomplish that.

We all know/suspect as much, but we've never spoken with Kevin Feige about it. Stan almost certainly has.

I think Kevin Feige should make it his goal to create a great FF film for Stan while he's still here to see it.

... and Stan should hold on until it happens.

If you think about it, it's only been eight years since Disney owned Marvel. In those eight short years, Marvel has regained the rights to Daredevil, Elektra, Punisher, Ghost-Rider, Ego, Namor and Man-Thing (among others), and they've gained creative control of Spider-Man and solidified creative control of Hulk. Plus they've obtained shared control of X-Men TV rights.

At this point their task is relatively simple and straight-forward:

1. Regain full or partial control of FF

2. Regain full or partial control of X-Men

3. Work to gain full control of all characters

Considering the FF situation, that's almost certainly the next, easiest domino to fall, and after that happens, they can refocus on other remaining rights.

While we can't say with certainty exactly how things will play out in the next eight years of Disney/Marvel, I think it's an absolute sure bet that Marvel will have much more control of their characters than they do now.

Namor is still a grey area? Must be a Hulk situation. That Universal bubble doesnt seem accurate with the supporting characters. And why is Kingpin a grey area?

That Fox bubble is going to exist in some shape fashion or form in one way or another. And is truly the one fans want the most.

Where did you see Namor being a gray area? I didn't know he was back at all, but I'm curious about the stipulations. Kingpin might have something to do with Sony and his connection to Spiderman. Who knows? And the FF Fox thing has boiled down to a sad little pissing match. It makes no sense on Fox's part, but they're acting like the brat kid that doesn't want anyone else playing with their toys...pricks...

I've read some fairly firm statements that Marvel has Namor, but there are a lot of things that are still not 100% confirmed.

That's a reasonably good, useful chart, but don't take it as gospel.
