Fox Dishes About Future Comic Book Projects

Fox-Color-LogoIn a recent interview with Variety, Fox was pressed on their lackluster summer results, and asked what battle plans were being drawn for upcoming blockbuster seasons. From the Interview, Variety learned the following:

Though Fox has no plans for a major overhaul, the studio has scheduled a strategy meeting to assess the status of its superheroes, a group sorely missed this summer. On the agenda, Fox will mull the possibility of more X-Men spinoffs, including a young-X-Men project as well as Deadpool, based on a character played by Ryan Reynolds in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The studio is even considering reviving the Daredevil property.

So let me get this straight, Fox has a bad summer and decides to fix the problem with a box of broken hammers and rusty nails.

Does it seem strange to anyone else that the upcoming (and allegedly horrible) Wolverene film is being used as a vehicle to launch Deadpool? Remember when they tried to do that with Reynolds in Blade 3 – yep, thats all.

WB finally gets their heads out of their asses about the Justice League and now Fox is talking about a young X-Men project? This doesn’t sound good at all. When other people make mistakes, you are able to learn valuable lessons for free; only a fool do would do likewise and expect different results.

Regarding Daredevil – are they planning on reviving Daredevil with a sequel or a remake? Either would be a mistake at this point in the game, I would certainly wait a few more years before re launching the character. In time another shot at the character would suit me just fine.

I understand that Fox wants to get more of that sweet comic book movie coin, but if they start throwing out shit they are going to damn the genre and everyone will lose in the long run. They certainly plan to milk the franchises they have leased for all they are worth. I wonder how much longer they have the rights to use these characters. Maybe that has something to do with the seemingly rushed, piss poor decisions.

International friends, am I getting worked up for no good reason, or do you also see cause for concern?
