ATTENTION: These statements are RUMORS and are NOT OFFICIAL!
Reports are flying in that Fox is getting very close to securing a Deal with Marvel for a live action X-Men series! While these are just rumors for the moment, Fox commented on a possible deal with Marvel to get this television series running.
"[For] X-Men, we're in negotiations with Marvel. We're hopeful we'll be able to announce something soon. We're not closed on a deal yet, but it's something we're definitely pursuing,"- Dana Walden , Fox tv group chairman
YES! It may actually happen!
X-Men fans have been waiting at the edge of their seats for developments of a X-Men television since the news broke a few days ago. If these RUMORS are in fact true, then fans definitely have reason to be excited.
Possible conflicts with Marvel?
There a couple of thinks that could possible end all possibility of Fox given permission to develop an X-Men television series. When it comes to X-Men, on television anyways, Marvel owns the rights to that. Fox's ownership to Marvel's characters is strictly film and a new deal needs to be put in place for a tv series to begin. Marvel has partnerships with Fox's rival network ABC. Marvel has multiple shows through the ABC network such as Marvel: Agent's of SHIELD and [Marvel's Agent Carter](tag:1119765). It's is likely that ABC would have an issue with Marvel going into business with one of their main rivals. Hopefully, Fox, Marvel, and possibly ABC can work out these issues so we can get some X-Men on television. It needs to happen!
