With Marvel and Disney gearing up with projects into the distant future, Fox and Marvel have now made a few announcements of their own. We have dates for Fantastic Four 2 as well as the next Wolverine movie.
“The studio announced The Fantastic Four 2 will open July 14, 2017, while an untitled Wolverine film will open March 3, 2017. Fox has also slated an untitled Marvel film for July 13, 2018.
Fox owns the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises, so the mystery 2018 Marvel film could draw from either of those. It's not unthinkable that the project might even be a crossover between the two”.
So will we finally have a cross over between these two properties? The interesting thing is who will be left from the original cast of the X-Men franchise? X-Men: Apocalypse will feature the X-Men of the First Class franchise. Will that include Hugh Jackman as a one-handed savage Wolverine? All these films are a long way off and anything can happen.
