Hours after news broke earlier this week that Marvel and Fox had been in talks for weeks about Marvel potentially buying back the rights to a number of properties, including the X-Men and Fantastic Four, follow-up stories stated that the deal had stopped. According to a new report, though, the deal’s not dead yet.
CNBC is reporting that Disney is in talks to buy 21st Century Fox, an entertainment arm within the larger Fox company that is reportedly looking to focus its efforts more on news and sports. If the deal were to go through, it could have potentially huge ramifications for a number of Marvel characters.
Today, Marvel Comics released Legacy #1, the banner book for its latest roster shakeup that lays the groundwork for what’s to come for the Marvel comics universe, on Earth, in the stars, and beyond. Here are all the teasers we saw in the book, and what they might mean for Marvel’s mightiest heroes.
Matthew Vaughn, director of the Kingsman series, was also a producer on the 2015 Fantastic Four movie. It was the third terrible film 20th Century Fox made starring those characters and, in a new interview, Vaughn says he’d love to atone for that.
For Legacy, Marvel is bringing back its iconic team-up series, Marvel Two in One—which was basically an entire series dedicated to teaming the Thing up with myriad Marvel heroes. But its first storyline will be dealing with ramifications felt by the absence of heroes missing since the end of Secret Wars: The Fantastic…

Hello, folks! Remember how I thought I was going to turn in a mail column last week after working 10 days in a row, most of which were spent covering the San Diego Comic-Con? Oh, to be so young and naive again. Hopefully this week makes up for it by answering why Fantastic Four movies don’t and can’t work in the…
Earlier this year, Mads Mikkelsen revealed that he had actually auditioned for a part in Josh Trank’s fantastically awful Fantastic Four reboot. But what caused him to abandoned his attempt to join the movie altogether? According to the actor, a truly weird audition that was all about the length of his arms. Yes, …
For the past few years, the Fantastic Four have been absent—both in Marvel’s comics universe and in reality. Although Marvel seems to be uninterested in filling this hole in the comics landscape, it appears DC is more than willing to give it a go: say hello to the Terrifics, DC’s own quirky quartet.
FX Legion’s debut San Diego Comic-Con panel largely went as expected—that is, until the closing minutes, when creator Noah Hawley dropped a giant bomb about a movie he’s developing for Fox. He only gave the hint “Doctor Doom” at the panel, but now Fox has confirmed to us it’s a film about the villain, and not a new …

When he’s not ruthlessly killing off our favorite A Song of Ice and Fire characters off left right and center, George R. R. Martin spends his time being one of the most adorable fanboys around.
Now that he’s been in Doctor Strange and Rogue One, it’s not like Mads Mikkelsen doesn’t have experience or interest in starring in some big ticket, CG-laden science fiction. But apparently even just auditioning for a role in the recent Fantastic Four reboot was too much for the actor.
Last week, we heard Hugh Jackman lament that he’d probably keep playing Wolverine if he could show up in an Avengers movie. Well, turns out he’s not the only actor who’s been in a Marvel Comics movie that wants in on the success of Marvel Studios—Fantastic Four’s own villain has joined the line.
There are a lot of things from the movies and TV shows making their way into the comics these days, since both influence each other in an endless marketing cycle. This list is about characters who, these days, are important enough to the original comic book world they were spawned from that it’s genuinely strange to…
When we hear the phrase “science fiction,” most of the time, we focus on the second word. That’s the fun part, right? The stuff that’s impossible? Well, a new art show is flipping that on its head.
There are a lot of reasons the 2015 version of Fantastic Four failed. But one of them might have been cutting all of the elements of the original story idea’s massive and completely bonkers battles.
Who would have thought that Roger Corman’s unreleased Fantastic Four would leave a greater impression on the pop culture landscape than the three big-budget, major studio releases? It’s arguably more successful, too.
Despite a frankly savage response to Fantasic Four last year—and even with his colleagues in the latest take on Marvel’s first family moving on to play roles in superhero franchises that aren’t currently actively on fire—Miles Teller is at least open to the idea of returning to the role of Reed Richards.
