It’s now 100% official – Disney has swallowed up 21st Century Fox, meaning the X-Men and Fantastic Four are now within grasp of Marvel Studios. After Spider-Man came home last year, these properties were virtually the only ones outside of the company’s reach. Now, the Marvel comics universe is extremely close to being whole on screen, and we couldn’t be more excited.
With these two major franchises now being at the studio’s fingertips, the possibilities of where things can go from here are endless. Some of them for the better, but others potentially for the worse. If Kevin Feige and his team simply bulldoze their way through the X-Men movie universe, for instance, they could be making a big mistake.
So, here are a few do’s and don’t’s for Marvel. Just a couple of helpful suggestions about how to handle the sudden influx of new characters that have come their way. In some cases, it will be best to leave things alone, while others really need a bit of the Marvel magic touch. Regardless, let’s have a look at 8 things the studio needs to do with the X-Men and Fantastic Four.
