Welcome back for the final part of the, look I will be completely honest here. I don’t have a cool title for this little mini series here. I could have called it the Fox/Disney merger, or the X-Men/Fantastic Four MCU merger. It should have had a fun and punny titled. Instead I named it after the Phases the MCU uses. It allowed me to number them, and also not confuse people with the numbering for the posts in a row thing I’ve got going on.
Welcome to part two of the untitled multi part thing I’ve got going on here. Yesterday I discussed one possible way I would introduce the X-Men/Fantastic Four characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Today I present the second suggestion/idea/theory. This one is a little longer.
I am pretty sure Disney now owns the film rights to FOX properties which include X-Men and Fantastic Four, so what happens from here?
Producer, Kevin Feige, has been the man behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) since its inception way back in 2008 when Iron Man was released in cinemas across the world. Since then, the MCU has managed to pump out 20 plus films, with more in active production and grossed over $17 billion at the box office making it the most successful film franchise of all time.
News of Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been known for about a month now. Initially I was going to post a blog as soon as the news broke, but as the hours went on more and more news broke. So I decided to wait. And wait, and sadly wait far too long. Eventually I deleted what I had written down and then out of nowhere while at work, I had a sudden urge to write. So the following are just a handful of things I wanted to say about Spider-Man and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. My thoughts, and hopefully if you agree (or don’t) I’d love to hear down below in the comments. A quick warning of potential SPOILERS BELOW. (more…)
BLOG UPDATE 006 – MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE CIVIL WAR
Please know, there will be SPOILERS for the MARVEL Cinematic Universe from previous films and me talking about rumours in the films to come. If you care by now, you have already seen or read all about the Marvel Event which took place in the last 24 hours. If not, seek it out because it will blow your mind.
I’m not here to update on that but I will be speculating a hell of a lot. While seeing all the updates during work, I couldn’t help but feel the need to get my thoughts down. And since this is a blog update, my thoughts are strictly on the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) right now. So consider the following words to be me trying to get my head around all the latest news.
