Marvel Now Has Rights Back to the 'Fantastic Four' Franchise

Marvel and Fox have agreed to give the 'Fantastic Four' rights back to Marvel.

According to reports, Marvel and Fox have decided to settle the TV rights for X-Men, giving Fox the okay to make two new X-Men TV series, Hellfire and Legion. But, it begs the question, what did Fox give up to make such a major deal possible? According to Den of Geek, all they had to do was give back the film rights to The Fantastic Four, with the first film coming to theaters in 2020.
You may remember that there are three, so-far untitled films on Marvel’s schedule in five years’ time. We’re told that one of those films is a Fantastic Four movie. We don’t have an independent source to back this claim up, so we’ll have to treat it with a certain amount of caution for now. But given the reception Fantastic Four received earlier this summer, it makes sense that Fox would be receptive to the idea of a deal with Marvel, particularly if it meant wresting something as major and lucrative as the X-Men TV rights from Marvel’s grasp.
Fantastic Four has had a miserable run with Fox over the past decade. For those of you who have paid attention to the latest Fantastic Four news, this new piece of information means there is going to be big changes ahead for the Fantastic Four franchise. Fantastic Four Fantastic Four
