For those wondering when Storm will ever get her just due… For those wondering when Storm will ever get her just due in the X-Men franchise, your wait might be over. A new report states that X-Men: Dark Phoenix will be the last 20th Century Fox X-Men film before the company merges with Disney.
Comicbook.com posted the news, gathering intel from Comic Genre, which stated that the film will not only be the last Marvel film made under Fox, but it might also be the last in that particular continuity. According to the report, this would come in time enough for the MCU Phase 4, which would be the MCU continuity of films post-2019’s Avengers film.
“Apparently, the X-Men being integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a done deal, and merely awaiting the approval of the merger,” wrote Comic Genre. “Kevin Feige is ‘hoovering up’ all of the Fox-Marvel characters, and is already planning for them all to go into Phase 4. This includes the X-Men, Deadpool, and Fantastic Four. In what capacity and with what actors was not discussed.”
For some elements of the Fox-Marvel franchise of films, this could spell disaster. For instance, the Deadpool films are wildly successful and, before the merger, could have only become as popular and as faithful to the source material through Fox, which kept Deadpool‘s R-rating intact. It’s hard to say how Deadpool will remain the homicidal merc with a mouth once the mouse ears get pushed on his head.
