Now after the amazing Deadpool trailer, we should talk about Fox and Marvel Studios. People are yelling since the start of the MCU that Fox should give back the rights for the X-Men and Fantastic 4. Now if that would have happened we would have never gotten this Deadpool movie. Let me explain. Marvel Studios is owned by Disney and that has a influence onto most Marvel movies. They are kid friendly. Now a movie being kid friendly doesn't mean it is bad. Absolutely not look at Pixer. It only means kids and everyone above that age can enjoy this movie. Marvel Studio aims for families. What is smart and there is nothing wrong about it and it works in most cases like Guardians of the Galaxy and in other like Age of Ultron not as well. So thinking Marvel Studios would give us the R Rated Deadpool movie Fox is giving us is a far stretch. Now many will say "What about Daredevil?". Daredevil is great and adult and surly not for children. It is still a fact that the showrunner confirmed that Daredevil Season 1 is not R Rated. Here is what the ex showrunner said about the rating:

"The first season of Daredevil was violent but I always say it was more implied. It wasn’t nearly as violent as The Walking Dead, a show that I love. On that, if somebody were to crush somebody’s head in a car door, you would’ve seen the head crush on screen but we didn’t want to go quite that far. We wanted to keep it right around PG-16 and not go all the way to the R. I have no idea if they’re planning to push it that far next season but I would be surprised."

So we see that we will very unlikely see a R Rated Punisher even on Netflix. So that even if Marvel Studios would give us a Netflix Deadpool series it is unlikely it would be the hard R rating you need to give Deadpool to give him justice. So the conclusion is maybe especially the X Men rights should stay with Fox. If they deliver quality what they did since X Men First Class it is just helpful for the genre and a movie more to enjoy. Now Fantastic Four is a different story with getting very mixed to bad reviews. Marvel Studio also doesn't need the X Men. If anything them having not the rights to all their characters, pushed them to use the Inhumans, who deserve the spotlight and would have been very late or never used. Marvel not owning all the character rights for the movies is bad luck but pushed them creatively to deliver great movies with publicly unknown Superheroes. If Marvel would have owned all the rights we would have for better or worst a universe built on the back of Spider-man and the X-Men not on Iron Man and Captain America. So in the end of the day don't hope for Fox movies to fail. Before the rights come back to Marvel what is unlikely with the studios intense relationship. It will only hurt the genre and make the superhero bubble, if anything burst earlier then needed. So instead of blind hate try to give constructive criticism to the studio that includes more then "You suck, give the rights to Marvel." It is something to think about for sure. Don't you think?
