I just saw this a bit earlier, and it made me dance around my room. If Marvel got the Fantastic Four back, it would be completely epic, I love the team. Not to mention it comes with Silver Surfer and Galactus, which would be great for Marvel's expanding cosmic side. I'd also love to see Doctor Doom and Latveria in the MCU.

Four words: I. HOPE. THIS. HAPPENS.

@The_Tree: I hope they work a deal with Sony as well.

@SandMan_: Sony actually seems like they'd be pretty cooperative, especially when there was talk about how they were going to let the Oscorp tower be in The Avengers. Maybe if this thing with Fox works out, Disney/Marvel will try to work something out with Sony.

@The_Tree: It was already planned to happen, but the designer took to much of his time.

Forget DD they can have him but FF shite ya. I wanna see what an FF movie would look like in the Avengers Movieverse.

I want the FF rights back for Doom and Galactus alone, Awesome stuff :D

#8 Posted by The_Tree (7275 posts) - - Show Bio

@SandMan_: The other big thing that gets me excited is that if Disney/Marvel get the FF back, they have most of the big chunks of their universe, they'd pretty much just need the X-Men and Spider-Man. It's one more step to seeing the full Marvel universe on the big screen.

@The_Tree: Its either give up DD or let us use FF characters. 
 
I really want Marvel to make a deal for Spidey and Wolvie...

@SandMan_: And I'd much rather have the Fantastic Four. I love Matt Murdock, but he and the rights that come with him aren't nearly as important to me as what comes with the FF rights. (Galactus, Silver Surfer, Doctor Doom, and the Fantastic Four!) With the cosmic direction the MCU seems to be taking, the Fantastic Four and its properties will be a very much welcomed addition.

sweet! I really feel like Marvel would do a much better FF movie than Fox could

@SandMan_: I think it's to soon for them to do another Spidey. I think it might be to late to salvage Wolverine from what Hugh Jackman and that movie did. 
Never liked him as Wolverine.
#13 Posted by SandMan_ (4528 posts) - - Show Bio
@The_Tree: Indeed. More characters and more possibilities...
#14 Posted by SandMan_ (4528 posts) - - Show Bio
@Dernman: Well...too soon?

@SandMan_: The dude just had a reboot movie out. One that came out not long after the last three movies. I'd rather it stay where it is and continue that then Marvel get rights back and reboot yet again.

@Dernman: How about letting them use Andrew Garfield's Spidey?
#17 Posted by Pwok21 (2261 posts) - - Show Bio

If this works, I will be very interested.

#18 Posted by Dernman (14932 posts) - - Show Bio
@SandMan_: I really can't imagine that happening.
#19 Posted by SandMan_ (4528 posts) - - Show Bio
@Dernman: Maybe so.

Nice. Perhaps Galactus in Avengers 3?... Introduce Silver Surfer after Avengers 2?

#21 Posted by Vance Astro (91196 posts) - - Show Bio

Don't care about Galactus. Hope he never appears in another film.

Because apparently after making 5 films that barely touched the surface, they've ran out of characters they can make toys of?

Now I really want to see the fantastic four reboot.

#24 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

So they'd just be getting ff characters and not the ff? Does that include Dr. Doom? I'm confused.

The Variety article says: "Sources say Marvel would give Fox more time to make DAREDEVIL in return for the rights to use characters from the FANTASTIC FOUR universe, including the giant, world-devouring supervillain Galactus, rumored to play a key role in future Marvel pics."

I'm pretty sure it's for everything involved with the Fantastic Four, I think people are just getting more hyped for Galactus because of the cosmic direction Marvel seems to be taking with Thanos and the Guardians of the Galaxy.

The Fantastic 4 rights aren't in the deal, Only Silver Surfer Galactus and other characters that were part of the original deal for the F4 rights. The team themselves and I would assume Doom aren't on the table at the moment

#27 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

Disney... Just get Daredevil back. Galactus isn't worth it.

#28 Posted by Nassirdada (47 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd like to see a stand alone Silver Surfer movie. Let Marvel explore more of its cosmic universe.

#29 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

Oh, Silver Surfer too? Hm.... Maybe.

that cloud? that wasn't Galactus! It was Green Lantern's Parallax rear end

The article doesn't make it sound too promising that this will happen. It would be awesome if it did. I'm liking the idea of the Guardians, Silver Surfer, Galactus, Thanos . . . maybe Annihilus if he could be part of the deal with Fox all in one universe. Pretty much all you need for at least 3 movies.

Deadlineis now reporting that it's unlikely Fox will give up Galactus and Silver Surfer since they would like to be able to use them in future FF films. They're not very optimistic about a Daredevil film franchise so it's likely they'll just let the rights revert.

DAMN YOU MARVEL!!!!

doesn’t make sense,why would Fox give over Galactus when he plays important part in the FF movies

#37 Edited by SHAZAM117 (2843 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think MARVEL is going to get F4 and/or use of those characters. I do think they can get Daredevil back though and I very excited about that happening. I can just imagine how dope MARVEL Studios can make The Hand, Elecktra, Bullseye and Kingpin be. I'd perfer them get the F4 back, but at the same time I really want to see MARVEL Studios tackle a street level character like Matt Murdock. I think this is a win-win for them. "Let us at least use some F4 characters or give up Daredevil"

#38 Posted by SandMan_ (4528 posts) - - Show Bio

Fox doesn't know what to do with the FF. Those movies sucked.

#39 Posted by sesquipedalophobe (4701 posts) - - Show Bio

I should rather see Daredevil. He's one more street brawler type needed in Marvel Studios. Galactus might fit in with Guardians of the Galaxy, but it's not likely to add anything more to the plot other than a bomb waiting to go off and conveniently diffused.

#40 Posted by Invisible_Witch (312 posts) - - Show Bio

The old FF movies do suck however I believe the reboot will better much better, which is why Fox should keep Galactus for later movies

#41 Edited by Pso_Christen (79 posts) - - Show Bio

Gu-GGGUUURRRLLLL!!! That is such exciting news!!! We need a good Fantastic Four movie, not to mention Galactus at his best and not in cloud formation.

Now if they can only make a deal with Fox and the X-Men.

I'm pretty sure that's the reason why they want Galactus and SS back.

If this story has any merit to it, it looks like Marvel is hedging its bets that 'Guardians of the Galaxy' will be a solid stepping stone to re-introducing the Marvel Cosmic to cinema audiences. I think it's a smart play. Marvel likely won't get Spiderman or any of the Mutants back, until their cinema usefulness has been stomped into a bloody puddle. So, they need to break new ground and why not with sci-fi? I think movie-going audiences are craving an entertaining, space-faring epic in a similar mold as 'The Avengers'.

I just hope that it's the traditional Galactus rather then the Ultimate Gah Lak Tus.

#45 Posted by pwnda (59 posts) - - Show Bio

what would be awesome after they introduce surfer and galactus would be an annihlation movie

#46 Posted by SandMan_ (4528 posts) - - Show Bio
@ogg927: Hopefully no cloud
#47 Posted by danhimself (22480 posts) - - Show Bio

this is not true...they've stated that there are no negotiations going on and that Fox does not want to give up key characters in the FF franchise so it looks like Marvel is getting Daredevil back

#48 Posted by ogg927 (135 posts) - - Show Bio

@SandMan_: I totally agree. That Gah Lak Tus or cloud had RUINED the last Fantastic Four movie. It felt weak without the real Galactus.

true. this ^.......... surfer did look cool though
