Still no X-Men. Disney is jerks...
Joe Quesada said at comic new york last year they want to have the FF and X-Men but can't right now for legal reasons.
Got a link to show that? I have one here that says they can.
I'm sure there is a video of the panel online somewhere maybe? It was at the 2014 NYCC Disney Infinity panel. It was in the Q&A. I was there so I never had to look it up. /shrug.
I also asked John Vignocchi if we could see X-Men and FF characters HERE.
CV: This might be something else you can’t talk about but could we see the possibility of seeing the line expand to characters from the comics not in the animated series or movies? Like where do the Fantastic Four or X-Men fit in?
JV: The answer to that is it really comes down to Marvel’s priorities. We’re willing to support Marvel’s priorities in any way that we can. So if there was ever an opportunity to integrate those types of characters, because that’s what their priority was as a business, we’d love to support Marvel in any way we can.
I remember reading that. Sounds like a round-about way of saying it's Marvel's fault. Could it be that Disney would if Marvel wanted them to? Marvel's fault, maybe?
Ah okay. That makes sense because I remember his phrasing at the time was intentionally vague and he said "there are some reasons for why we can't use some of those characters." I just assumed it was a legal issue, but after seeing that it sounds more like a corporate issue.
leave it to the big mouse to ruin the fun for everyone because they don't want to "promote" people to buying x-men and FF. but don't worry folks we don't need mutants anymore, we got INHUMANS to fill the temporary plot void.
