Are you ready X-Men and Fantastic Four fans? Because it’s happening!

Kevin Feige, the main man over at MCU HQ has been talking finally getting the rights back from FOX for the other two massive corners of the MCU and he seems to be very excited – aren’t we all? for it.

When the buy-over of FOX by Disney goes through (more on that in a minute), Marvel/Disney will have the cinematic rights back for X-Men and Fantastic Four – this includes characters like Deadpool and Silver Surfer.

But we’ve been wondering if and when we can expect to see these worlds collide and it seems that it’s going to be pretty soon as the deal is expected to go through in January!

“We’ve been told it’s looking very, very good and could happen in the first six months of next year,” said Feige.

“The notion of the characters coming back is great. It’s nice when a company that created all these characters can have access to all those characters. It’s unusual not to. But in terms of actually thinking about it and actually planning things, we haven’t started that yet.”


So there you have it… by the middle of next year, we can expect to start hearing of MCU details involving the character FOX has had for the last 20 years.

What say you all? Let us know your thoughts…

Oh, and while you’re here, how about the first character posters from Avengers: Endgame? Because we have those too.

You’re welcome.
