Fox, Marvel drop lawsuit over Zoom

20th Century Fox and Marvel Enterprises have withdrawn the suit they filed in June against Revolution Studios and Sony Pictures, charging them with copyright infringement and unfair competition for planning to release the superhero comedy Zoom on May 12, 2006, two weeks ahead of Fox’s X-Men 3.

Fox declined comment beyond saying the dispute had been resolved amicably. Zoom now is moving to an August date, though a source at Revolution would not say that was a condition for Fox’s withdrawing the suit, instead saying it was dictated by the fact Warner Bros. Pictures announced a May 12 release date for “Poseidon,” forcing Zoom to move to a less-heavily populated August date.
