'X-Men,' 'Fantastic Four' in Flux After Fox-Disney Deal

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to get a lot bigger, but some fear that it may become too crowded.

The announced Disney-Fox deal is a big step forward in Marvel reclaiming many of the characters it lost in the 1990s as it licensed them out to stave off bankruptcy. The respective characters from the X-Men and Fantastic Four universes will finally join the Marvel Studios fold.

On one level, it could not have come at a more precipitous time. After the release of Avengers 4 in 2

11 Star Wars Prequel Ideas Abandoned by George Lucas

In the lead-up to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we look back at the first Jedi (narratively speaking) with a series of stories about the much-beloved and never-disparaged prequel trilogy.
