Kinberg Talks About X-Cellent Future in Movies and TV

- 04-28-14Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson


Big, shared universes are all the rage, all the cool movie studios are doing it after all. The Marvel Cinematic Universe being produced over at Disney/Marvel Studios is a good example of the system working well, but keep in mind that they don’t have access to the film rights for all the Marvel Comics characters. This is where Twentieth Century Fox comes in. They have the film rights for the Fantastic Four and all the X-Men related characters, and one man has been involved in the production of both film franchises: Simon Kinberg. While at Wonder Con a couple of weekends ago, Kinberg was asked about how Fox is going to capitalize on it’s Marvel properties now and in the future. (more…)

The news on FOX‘s X-Force movie is just steamrolling! Only this past Thursday night did we even learn FOX was interested in a feature film based on the 90s comic book series, and now the movie has been officially confirmed as in the works with Jeff Wadlow, writer/director of the soon to be released Kick-Ass 2, attached to write the screenplay.

Likely, this rapid release of this X-Force news is tied to San Diego Comic Con happening next weekend. FOX dragged their feet in releasing the details of their Saturday Hall H panel, and I’m going to guess it’s because they wanted to have as much of this X-Force stuff finalized before they officially, officially announce the flick in front of thousands of nerds.

X-Force creator Rob Liefeld is convinced you can’t have an X-Force movie without Cable or Deadpool, tweeting,
