Kinberg: Disney Is Evaluating Fox’s In-Development X-Men Movies
Now that Disney’s acquisition of Fox is complete, the X-Men can finally part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The mutants and Marvel’s First Family will be under the direction of Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios, but it’s still unclear what will happen with the in-development movies that were in the works at 20th Century Fox.
Speaking with Variety, producer Simon Kinberg revealed that Disney is taking a look at what had been done before making any final decisions.
“All of the movies at Fox are being evaluated,” Kinberg said. “I love the idea of Channing playing Gambit. I think we have a great script for it and I think it’s a role he was born to play. It’s a character I grew up loving and I know the fans love. So I suspect, I hope it will happen. There will be a lot of mixing and merging now and I’m all for it and excited to see.”
Kinberg expressed his enthusiasm for the crossover that fans can expect in the MCU.
“There will be a lot of mixing and merging now and I’m all for it and excited to see” Kinberg added.
Written by Josh Zetumer, Gambit saw directors Gore Verbinski, Rupert Wyatt, and Doug Liman alternate behind the camera before they all left the project.
