Just my freakin’ luck…

The big news today is that Disney has gone ahead and bought the Fox entertainment division. It’s all over the news. Here’s a big link explaining it all. This is a huge deal, most importantly for me and you because it means the X-Men and Fantastic Four are now under the control of Marvel Studios. At long last, these two major franchises can join the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Just in time for the Avengers actors to retire now that their contracts are up!

Of course, knowing my luck, this big news — years in the making — has only arrived after Fox announced a freakin’ Multiple Man movie! Come on!

Madrox Movie 09

You had hope, but that’s gone now

Multiple Man is my all-time favorite superhero and comic book character. The idea that Fox would devote resources to a full-on Multiple Man solo movie was impossible to imagine only a few short weeks ago. But then Fox goes ahead and announces that James Franco is going to make the movie and star. It’s a literal dream come true, and for the first time in my life, I was glad that the X-Men are their own separate film entity and can make movies like Multiple Man.

So of course, immediately after this movie announcement, Disney finally gets the rights back for the X-Men in movies.

God dammit. This is just my freakin’ luck!

And just like when Disney acquired Star Wars and shut down the various video games and TV shows in production, I have to imagine they’re going to put a lot of in-development X-Men projects on the cutting block. And the Multiple Man movie is in its infancy, so there’s no reason to let it go forward.

Of course this is all happening. I just can’t have nice things.

  1. Sorry, man. Hope it works out somehow anyway, for your sake.

    I’m just hoping to finally see an X-Men movie I can tolerate, and this merger gives me hope (but not much).

  2. They have yet to tell us what is going to happen in the future. Maybe Multiple Man is the starting point of a new era of Marvel movies.

    Am I being too optimistic?
