SILVER SURFER Movie In The Works; Marvel Spinoffs Will Continue Being Developed Until Disney Deal Finalises

You might think Fox will put the brakes on all those X-Men and Fantastic Four spinoff movies with Disney in the process of acquiring the studio but a new report points to them moving "100mph per hour."

We keep hearing that Fox is developing X-Men and Fantastic Four spinoff movies but with Disney in the process of acquiring the movie studio, it's fair to say that the vast majority of fans are convinced that none of them will ever see the light of day (which may not be a bad thing given Fox's spotty record with comic book adaptations). However, none of that means the studio isn't keeping busy!

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that solo movies for Doctor Doom and the Silver Surfer are in the works, with the latter being written by Bruan K. Vaughn of Saga and Runaways fame. There are also a number of other "secret projects" in the works, all of which the studio is reportedly moving at "100 miles per hour" on. Will any of them see the light of day? For now, that remains unclear.
 
"It does not affect this project in any way, shape or form is what I was told," Brian Michael Bendis tells the trade after signing up to work on a Kitty Pryde movie with Deadpool director Tim Miller. "At least at the moment, it's certainly decisions over my pay-grade if it ends up doing so."
 
In fact, it's "business as usual" at Fox as one insider tells the trade, "We actually have way more in development and production in Marvel IP than at any point in the history of the studio. There's been zero slowdown on that front given Disney." So, it's going to now be very interesting seeing what happens with these moving forward as the Disney/Fox deal could be finalised by the end of this year or well into 2019. Either way, that gives the studio the chance to get cameras rolling on many of them.
