Fox - X-Men and FF

Marvel - everything else

@fallschirmjager: They should just come to some agreement because I dont really like that X-men and Spiderman are in their own Universes...Its weird as hell.

@flameboy298: its never going to happen. the money they'd have to make in order for it to be a profit for both would be ridiculous.

say they make 1 billion on a crossmovie. about 1/3 of that money goes to the theaters, so 666 mill left over.

movie superhero movies are like 200 million production budget + another 50 million (on average) marketing. so that's 510 mil. 255 mil each.

ASM by itself made by itself made 752 mil. Meaning 500 went back to the studio. they had a 230 mil production budget..add another 50 for marketing and the movie made 220 mil for the studio.

So a cross over would have to make 20-25% more just to be about even. (and ASM had 30 mil more expensive production budget) Its never going to happen

@thorson: Actually Marvel does have the rights...even Kevin Fiege spoke on that.

So far Marvel has gotten the rights of Blade and Daredevil back in their possession, Kevin Feige mentioned that Namor is still over at Universal studios and Fox reportedly has to begin filming Fantastic Four by mid-next year (exactly 7 years after the last FF film was released) or else the rights revert back to Marvel...

If you think about it, this rights-issue has been quite an improvement from last year.

When does Universal lose the rights to Namor the sub mariner and Lionsgate lose the rights to man-thing. Universal has done nothing with Namor and Lionsgate hasn't done nothing since 2005 with man-thing that's almost 9 years and if Universal got the rights to Namor in 2006 then it's been 8 years and no movie how long should these movie houses be allowed to hold on to the rights and not produces a successful movie or a movie at all. If the executives of these production companies don't believe these characters won't produce profitable movies then give the rights back and stop holding these characters hostages.

So far so good with Marvel re-obtaining the rights. They just don't have Spidey, F4, X-Men, or Namor. This may sound kinda dickish, but I actually hope TASM2 doesn't meet expectations and TF4 flat-out bombs so Marvel gets the rights to the Four back and Sony will notice their franchise is in a slow decline (since TASM was the lowest-grossing SM film) and they'll have no choice but to team with Marvel and put Spidey in the MCU. I'm also hoping DOFP bombs, but I don't want those rights going back to Marvel because the X-Men should be in their own universe. Instead, I want Fox to realize they need to completely reboot the franchise from the ground up with a 100% new cast and crew (with no one returning). Then, and only then, will we most likely get the X-Men movies we've always wanted. On the subject of Namor, Universal hasn't done anything with him or even talked about it, so I'm sure he'll be going home in no time.

@masterbelmont: sorry to hurt your bubble, but for me the big issue is how crossed the comics are, where are all the rights? How do you unpick them? Do Fox own the rights to Ms Marvel Powered Rogue, Dr Strange powered Juggernaut, Captain Britain Powered Psylocke?

Ill come and add more if you like, I'd have to dig through FF and Xmen methos... all fox own are the mutant aspects of the xmen universe, the rest is Marvels, so on one side the Xmen will always be rubbish, and The MCU will always have limitations. Same goes for Fantastic Four, all those cosmic powered enemies but no way to use them, The FF strength in the comics is the use of the Avengers, heck She-Hulk alone could save the franchise, but not going to happen.

Spider-Man is the only franchise that can survive on his own, he has his own collection of villains and they are all street level so no lack of cosmic team ups.

That's my opinion anyway, Xmen will die a death because of the way it can't help but let down fans, same goes for FF, they work for a film or two but then what... Reboot.

Spider-Man can go on and on for ages before needing a reboot, if Sony wishes.

Question. Can I take an old character from Marvels like "Luke Cage: Hero For Hire" for example. Raise the money on Kickstarter ($100K+) or some other crowdfunding site. Take the money I raise and film the story. After I'm doing filming, I make the film into a webseries. Now I've done all of this work for FREE. Meaning that all the hard work that I put into doing this film would be all for the love of filming, the character and I just love Marvel comics. Would I be sued? Even if I'll make zero dollars.

@lavellelarue: No.I dont think so, well maybe I read that someone made a fan based film on punisher and Marvel shut it down or something but it was popular though
