My FOX Movie Line-Up

Taking a break from fanfic, I give you my opinion on how FOX should do their shared universe.

As we know, FOX is planning a shared universe consisting of X-Men and Fantastic Four characters. Here is how I would plan them if I had any say in the matter.

2015:
The Fantastic Four
-Young scientists Reed Richards and Sue Storm are geniuses in their mid twenties. They make a break through discovery and are awarded a trip through space along with a +1. Sue brings her arrogant brother Johny and Reed brings his childhood best froend and recently discharged Ben Grimm. Reed and Sue's friend/rival Victor Von Doom bribes his way intothe adventure. In space, they experience a galactic storm, and their ship crashes as it returns to Earth. The four begin to develope powers, and Ben's skin gradually becomes more rocky. Doom, jealous he has not recieved gifts, leaves for Europe. The government agency that took them to space hire them to investigate strange creatures seen in the desert. The go and disturb Mole Man, who decides now is his time to take over the surface, leading his minions to destroy humanity. He is defeated. After credit scene shows Doom in Latveria, now with electrical powers.

2016
X-Men: Apocalypse
-Wolverine awakes in a new alternate future; one where an evil mutant known as Apocalypse went back to (event that caused DOFP), and changed time by starting a genocide on nonpowered humans. Cable, also a time travel, takes Wolverine and a few surviving X-Men to the past to stop Apocalypse. He is stopped, and Wolverine returns to the present to find a new world where the X-Men are known as heroes and a new team known as the Fantastic Four have emerged.

*The "new universe" would be a way to introduce the F4 without messing up continuity, as well as keep everything from XM:FC to The Wolv. in the timeline and maybe introduce new, comic inspired uniforms for some X-Members

X-Force
-After seeing the horrors of both Apocalypse and Setinels, Cable gathers a team of mutants willing to stop threats before they start. Their first target is a scientist known as Mister Sinister, a mutant believing himself to be a Mutant Messiah. He using different DNA to create an army of perfect mutants. In the end, Sinister reveals that Cable is his creation, a combination of Scott Summers and Jean Grey, and was created to lead the army. They "kill" Sinister.

*I used Sinister's DNA work as a way to keep the Wade Wilson from Origins in continuity, and give Deadpool (who is on the team) some beef and dialogue with Sinister. Also, the DNA work will tie in to the crossover.

2017
-Fantastic Four 2
Doom returns to sabotage the F4 and seek vengence for them stealing his work. In the end, Doom is defeated and sent back to Latveria. There, he is approached by Sinister.

2018
-X4
Sinister grants Doom the power of Apocalypse on the condition tht Doom help him take over the world. Doom accepts as he is mad with power. The F4 are easily defeated and go find the X-Men for help.

*I saved this for 2018 to compete with Avengers 3
*Wolverine will either die or retire (giving Jackman 10 portrayals)
* A new X-Team will be formed


Movie dates unknown:
-First Class Sequel: Taking place after the past portion of DOFP. Wont interfere with main timeline

-The Wolverine Sequel: Jackman will have 10 (X1,2,3, XMOW, XMFC, TW, XMDOFP, XMA, TW2, X4) portrayals, retiring after this or X4. This would take place between the end of TW and its mid credits scene.

Well, what do y'all think?

I love this! Great stories. I don't think the Wilverine character should retire. They should just recast. CBM universes should be like the James Bond Films. There are enough stories to tell.

I don't want Mole Man anywhere near becoming a live action character. The Fantastic Four should fight something cosmic. Dr. Doom shouldn't show up at all, maybe an after credits scene.

I hear Annhilous is the villain in TFF

I was going to go with Annihilus but didn't know if theyd go that route just yet. He'd be a good crossover villain as well

Why no deadpool on this list?

@koolaidbag
I forgot that Deadpool had his own movie in development. I'd like to see a Deadpool movie like the recent "Good, Bad, & Ugly" story where Weapon X is trying to recapture him to use his organs for research. I love how he was written in that arc.

@JoJo
A third (well, fourth) Wolverine? I'll take it!

How about...

F4 goes to Marvel.
X-Men: Apocalypse.
The Wolverine 2 & 3 making a trilogy.
Deadpool spinoff.
X-Force.

I think that's a semi-reasonable way to look at it.

I love Fox CBMs but F4 belongs over at Marvel..

The tone wouldn't work within the established X-Men universe. Movie X-Men are deep, dark and thematic. The F4 are cheesier, funnier which is great but fits in the Marvel Cinematic Univetse not X-Men.

Also, one of the core elements of the X-Men is the fact that the public hates them because of their weird powers. One of the core elements of F4 is that the public loves them because of their weird powers. They are honestly incompatible in a film verse.

I like your ideas they sound solid and it seems the films can expand with in there own universe. It would have a lot more variety than just one shared universe which is currently Marvel Studios at the moment. However, i still do find the fact that F4 is not at Marvel where it's better more suited to be.

I dont mind that FOX is doing a shared universe with both franchises i just hope both films will succeed and will be great. I think personally Annihilus would be a great villain for both X-men and Fantastic Four if they where to ever team up on the big screen.

Charles Dance for Annihilus

what about deadpool??

good article, I have a lot of little problems here and there but biggest one is Doom. getting his powers with the FF is such a bad way to go. I think Doom loses so much that way, and u gain nothing good except convenience.
he's really a better character as originally written.
personally too, I'd rather that Doom was never seen outside his mask.
u can tell everything in his backstory and history with Reed, from Reeds own mouth, like at a dinner scene with Sue's family, and news about Latveria comes up and what this Doom guy is pulling now,
Reed perks up, Ben makes a comment, Sue asks Reed what Bens talking about, Reed tells in five sentences what his strange experience with Doom was in college.
kinda like when someone's got a story about how they used to be Bin Laden's coke connection back when he was on the party scene, and just trip out on what the guy had become.
that's all the setup Doom needs, everything else is revealed thru Doom simply being Doom.
