As we all wait for the 2015 comic book movie showdown that Batman vs. Superman appears it will be, Warner Bros isn’t the only studio looking to pit it’s flagship superhero franchises against one another. According to the investment blog The Motley Fool, 20th Century Fox is planning on crossing over Fantastic Four with X-Men in a movie that seems as though it will follow a classic comic storyline that pitted the two supergroups against one another.
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.
Bleeding Cool cautions that this might not be a movie that goes into production as the Fantastic Four reboot has yet to even officially cast the film let alone look ahead to a future sequel. But there have been rumblings of a Fantastic Four and X-Men crossover and the Fantastic Four vs. X-Men may be something that makes sense for Fox.
Either way, a crossover seems like it’s going to happen and the fact that an investment blog is on the news means that this crossover business goes all the way to the top at Fox and is being considered more seriously than we thought.
