Kinberg hints at Fox Marvel TV shows and talks Deadpool movie tone

April 26th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Should we be worried about too much comic book characters onscreen? Or is such a thing impossible? We’ll ask you all again in a couple of years…

Speaking to Collider, X-Men: Days of Future Past writer Simon Kinsberg talked about how Fox want to expand on their Marvel properties and there’s just to much to cover on the big screen, including X-Men, Fantastic Four, X-Force, Deadpool and New Mutants: “We’re still in this place of figuring out what the future of the franchise will be, but when you look at S.H.I.E.L.D. to some extent and what Marvel is doing now with ‘Daredevil’ and other shows on Netflix, it makes sense to tell some of these stories on TV partly because there’s just not enough screens to do all these characters, and also because the serialized format of comic books is better suited for TV.

“Every week you come back to the same character’s different story, and in comic books every week it’s the same characters, different story. I think what [Fox is] seeing now is with the proliferation of new kinds of visual and special effects, there’s a way to make these stories that doesn’t cost $300 million every time you have to make a huge movie.”

Oh and what about that oft-rumoured Deadpool movie?: “Yeah, it makes sense to me. Genuinely, it’s early phases, early days, but if you’re gonna do a ‘Deadpool’ movie, I think you’ve gotta do a hard-R, darker movie and he is the perfect character to do it with.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
