Kevin Feige discusses bringing FOX MARVEL characters in to MCU

Marvel Comics

It’s been a little while since we heard anything about the merger between 20th Century Fox and Disney. The latest rumours point to the deal being completed “sometime” in the first half of 2019.

The deal being completed will signify that Marvel can go ahead and begin bringing the X-Men and Fantastic Four characters in to its cinematic universe. But are the team at Marvel already working on plans?

Studio president Kevin Feige has been discussing the subject in a new interview with Variety and here’s what he had to say.

“No, not yet, but we’ve been told it’s looking very, very good and could happen in the first six months of next year … The notion of the characters that had previously been under a Fox agreement coming back is great. It’s nice when a company that created all these characters can have access to all those characters. It’s unusual not to; Marvel’s been in a unique position to not have access to those characters for a long time … But in terms of actually thinking about it and actually planning things, we haven’t started that yet.”
