‘Deadpool’ director developing Kitty Pryde solo movie. But, like, what about Disney’s acquisition of Fox?

It’s a weird moment in the X-Universe. Despite the fact that Disney has ingested all of Fox’s X-Men properties, uh, there still seems to be a crazy amount of development going on. Like, how long is it until Feige stands over the entire Fox slate, unfurls his enormous producer hog, and washes it clean so Marvel Studios can incorporate the properties? Should we even get excited about this?

I can’t help but feel a bit sick at the news that Disney and Fox have consummated their deal. Like, man. Talk about a fucking monoculture. But, you know. I’m definitely going to jizz when I see Thor, Peter Parker, Cyclops, and Reed Richards saving the world together.

James Franco starring as Multiple Man in ‘X-Men’ spin-off movie. Like, what the fuck?

James Franco, who loves himself more than I love anything in the world, is returning to the world of comic books to play Jamie Madrox in a Multiple Man movie.

I have no hopes for X-Men: Dark Phoenix. While it isn’t being directed by Singer, praise the lords, it’s being helmed by his frequent collaborator Simon Kinberg.

Fox ‘X-Men’ TV Series Casts Emma Dumont As Magneto’s Daughter

As the title says! Emma Dumont has been cast in Fox’s X-Men TV series as Magneto’s daughter. I…I don’t really care about this show at all, and can’t imagine myself watching it, so I’m probably not the best measuring stick for if this news is good or not.

Simon Kinberg is probably directing the next X-Flick, X-Men: Supernova. Should this excite you, should you be excited that Bryan Singer isn’t directing it, remember. Kinberg fucking *wrote* X-Men: Apocalypse.
