Simon Kinberg Creating A Shared Comic Book Movie Universe For Fox's Marvel Characters
Simon Kinberg and his Genre Films banner have signed a new three-year first-look deal at 20th Century Fox, and part of that will include helping the studio create a shared cinematic universe for their Marvel characters just as Kevin Feige has done for The Avengers. Read on for details!
Simon Kinberg penned the screenplay for X-Men: Days of Future Past and was recently hired to take a crack at the Josh Trank helmed The Fantastic Four, but the writer/producer's next gig will be to create a shared cinematic universe for Fox. According to the site, "The new deal lets him continue to expand those franchises into full-blown universes, with the hope of creating for Fox something akin to the Marvel model of interlocking movies." In Kinberg's own words, he says: "I have a lot of ideas on how to built those brands and do what everybody is thinking of these days: Be like Marvel. I want to be able to build stories over multiple movies." So, don't be surprised if we actually get to see an X-Men Vs. Fantastic Four movie at some point in the near future! Kinberg is also working on a Star Wars spinoff for Disney. How do you guys feel about this news?
