Fox Was Planning a Big Marvel Crossover Movie With X-Men, Fantastic Four, Deadpool, and Daredevil
Back in 2011, Fox was actually looking at developing a massive Marvel crossover movie that would have combined a ton of characters such as the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Deadpool, and even Daredevil, who they still had the too at the time.
This big reveal comes from X-Men: First Class writer Zack Stentz. He talked about it in a recent interview with Fatman Beyond Podcast where he also says that they were looking to get Paul Greengrass to direct this thing!
"My ex-partner and I, when we were working at Fox and we were working on X-Men: First Class, we did a secret movie for them that, I can't tell you what the plot was, but I can tell you that it used all of the characters, all of the Marvel characters that Fox had at the time in 2011. It used the X-Men. It used the Fantastic Four. It used Daredevil. It used Deadpool. Daredevil was still at Fox at the time. We almost had Paul Greengrass directing it which would've been so cool but he had another project to do instead. It didn't end up going but it was a script I was really proud of and it would've been really good."
That would have been a huge movie! I can only imagine that these characters would have faced off with a threat like Galactus or Annihilus.
I’ll be honest, I would have loved to see this movie! I know Fox has been hit and miss with their Marvel movies, but I still would have liked to see what would have come of this story.
"This was at Fox in 2011, which doesn't really exist anymore, so maybe they won't sue me for revealing. Even though, I didn't reveal what it was called”
While Fox never followed through with their plans on this movie, maybe one day we will see all of these characters come together to fight against an evil threat under the Marvel Studios production banner.
Would you have liked to see Fox make this movie back in 2011?
