Sources tell Den Of Geek that Marvel's recently announced deal with FOX to make X-Men TV shows — starting with the spinoffs Hellfire and Legion — are part of a larger deal that will give Marvel control of its First Family!
Not only that, but Marvel would also have the rights to all FF-related characters, meaning Galactus, Namor, Silver Surfer, and more!
Marvel mentioned that they'd added three more movies to their Phase 3 lineup — could one of them be a reboot of the Fantastic Four?

The franchise has not gotten a lot of love over the past few months. After the dark reboot bombed commercially and critically — getting even worse reviews than the maligned Jessica Alba versions from a decade ago — many said an FF movie couldn't work at all!
But when the studio that turned a raccoon and a tree into 2014's breakout movie stars gets their hands on it, we're thinking they can make it work!
Are YOU excited for Marvel to take a swing at their own superheroes?
