Kevin Feige Expresses His Excitement On Regaining X-MEN, FANTASTIC FOUR, and Hundreds of Other Marvel Characters
The deal between Disney and Fox will be closing soon, and when it does, Marvel will be getting back the rights to X-Men and Fantastic Four, which a lot of fans have been incredibly excited about.
During the Golden Globe Awards last night, Kevin Feige was asked to share his thoughts on regaining these properties ,and he’s clearly excited to get his hands on them! He also used the opportunity to remind us that there are a lot more characters that they’ll be able to play with outside of the popular characters that we already know. In fact, there’re hundreds of other characters they’ll be getting back!
He told MTV News:
"The truth is, I’m excited for all of them. I’m excited, and it’s not just the marquee names you know — there are hundreds of names on those documents, on those agreements.
"And the fact that Marvel is as close as we may ever get now to having access to all of the characters, is something I’ve been dreaming about for my almost 20 years at Marvel. And it’s very exciting."
We all know that we’re going to see the X-Men and Fantastic Four characters eventually brought into the MCU, but Feige clearly has plans for some of the hundreds of other characters that they’ll be getting their hands on. It’ll be interesting to see which of those other characters they end up playing with.
