Fox is all like “Hey, fukk u Marvel! You may own the rights to like 75% of ur properties but that doesn’t mean you get to do the Heroes Fight One Another movie storyline first! Were gonna do it while Mark Millaer wipez his ass original copies of Amazing Fantasy #Something comics are ghey.”

With 2014 approaching, movie news will continue to be incredibly slow until early January, so we figured we’d write about a massive rumor that is unsubstantiated, but fun to think about and actually quite plausible. It involves Fox’s Marvel properties the X-Men andFantastic Four.

An investment website is reporting Fox is planning on following in Marvel and Warner Bros.’ footsteps by creating a film based on the 1987 miniseries Fantastic Four vs. X-Men.

The site who reported this is called The Motley Fool, a long-running financial advice site. Thanks to io9 for the heads up. Here’s the exact wording to start:

After multiple movies in their respective franchises, Fox has now decided to combine the Fantastic Four and the X-Men for an “Avengers”-style movie that could pay off huge for shareholders.

Based on a 1987 four issue comic called Fantastic Four vs. X-Men, the movie will see the characters against each other because of secrets regarding the Fantastic Four’s origin. The new movie also comes as Fox is rebooting the Fantastic Four series with new actors and actresses.

Where’d they get this information? Is it true? Who knows. That’s why we’re staying it’s a rumor. But let’s discuss the logistics.


(I realize the Avengers fight one another in the film, but nothing so much on this level of chicanery.)
