20th Century Fox looking to reboot the X-Men movies!

The X-Men movie franchise has now been running for 16 years and not including this Februarys smash hit Deadpool encompasses seven movies. Unfortunately, the Bryan Singer X-Men cinematic universe has become so convoluted with time travel retcons and a whole string of continuity errors. Despite a soft reboot with X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Future Past's attempt to retcon the franchise using time travel, this summer's X-Men Apocalypse failed to live up to its own hype. With James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Jennifer Lawrence's contracts with the franchise concluded, with Hugh Jackman hanging up the claws after next years Logan, and with honored actors Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen no longer suitably viable for the roles of Xavier and Magneto, the possibility of rebooting the entire franchise would make sense right now.

The Hollywood Reporter today reported that 20th Century Fox is indeed looking into that possibility with Simon Kinberg remaining onboard to develop the narrative, but there are rumors that Bryan Singer will not be returning and the possibility that Deadpool could be used as a starting point for the new X-men movie franchise. With news that Fox is also planning to introduce X-Force in Deadpool 3, and with the studio looking to re-develop Gambit into a possible "New Mutants" which may also transition into an all new X-Men.

 

This year's Deadpool did introduce a different interpretation of the metallic-skinned X-Man Colossus than that which was showcased in Bryan Singers X-2, and did open the possibility of a cross studio deal with Marvel Studios with the inclusion (though not outrightly stated) of a Helicarrier in Fox's most successful comic book movie to date.

Every Marvel fan would love to see all of the comic book giants characters in one cinematic universe, and if a rebooted X-Men movie franchise could open up that possibility it will be welcomed by fans, even more so if the franchise is recreated with the same devotion that Ryan Reynolds inspired in the production team of Deadpool.

4 Fan responses to 20th Century Fox looking to reboot the X-Men movies!

I'm fine with rebooting the series (although I don't think it is necessary. Apocalypse wasn't so successful, but is that reason enough to reboot? I would like to see McAvoy and Fassbender return, they are fantastic. Give Matthew Vaughn another shot at directing them!), but please leave Marvel out of it. The X-Men movies have a unique feel to them, and I don't want that diluted into the bland sameness that is the MCU.

You'd think they would wait a few years after LOGAN releases to let the original series lose popularity. Studios are so quick to reboot it's insane!

That's kind of sad. I didn't really care for any of the original trilogy besides X2, but since First Class I've loved them. Really wanted the 90s and Mister Sinister in the next one.
