As we all know how FOX currently owns the rights to X-Men and Fantastic Four instead of Marvel. But just wonder what would happen if FOX gave back their rights to Marvel? I mean as far as I can see it FOX currently has only one project that is a smash hit, X-Men. X-Men Days of Future Past was awesome, I loved what Bryan Singer did to set up the future X-Men, and with it's upcoming sequel X-Men Apocalypse, we all are just anticipating for the movie to come out. Despite the failure that is Fantastic Four, I still think that Marvel can do a better job. Both FOX and DC have one thing in common, the dark and grittiness in their movies respectively. They made Fantastic Four look like a horror movie, while Marvel is all still downright jolly, all bright and fun.

So what exactly would happen if FOX gave back Marvel's rights to Fantastic Four and X-Men back?

Let's be honest here, we all want to know what can happen if Marvel owned back Fantastic 4 and X-Men.

Spider-Man joins both The Avengers and Fantastic Four

Y'see in the comics Spider-Man is a big shot for being hated a lot by J. Jonah Jameson, but that didn't stop him from being the hero we all know and love. Spider-Man joined both Fantastic Four and The Avengers, I'd love to see that. Also we might probably see Bombastic Bag Man for the first time on-screen and still be a total bad ass! Bombastic Bag Man is Spider-Man's newer superhero identity, since he lost his old suit, he had to wear an old Fantastic Four outfit and because he has no mask, we wears a plastic bag to protect his identity.

The Avengers and Fantastic Four anyone?

Another possibility is The Avengers going against The Fantastic Four. Since Spider-Man is a member of both teams, we might get to see the two teams in a big fight just to get Spider-Man. Like Civil War except it's between The Avengers and Fantastic Four. The fight to see who gets Spider-Man.

Sets up Infinity War

Everyone knows that Infinity War will be one of the biggest war in the MCU, it will feature many of our favorite heroes, such as; Daredevil, Iron Fist, Inhumans, Guardians of The Galaxy (possibly), Captain Marvel, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and so much more, all of them against Thanos in one war to save all mankind. Now also how does this connect? Well we'd need Mr Fantastic's brains to figure out a way to defeat Thanos, along with some other smart genius' like Tony Stark and Bruce Banner. They'd also need mutants to stop Thanos, so X-Men would make a great addition, with X-Men Apocalypse set to hit theaters in 2016 and once they realize that the fight is not over, they are already prepared to fight Thanos, because they've faced Apocalypse, which ties in with Thanos. That leads me to my next point...

Future Foundation!

Future Foundation, is basically a whole new Fantastic Four but without the Four part. Mr Fantastic came up with the idea of Future Foundation, in order to ensure Earth's future and create a better future for mankind, he goes out searching for young, brilliant minds to be recruited, along with Zero-G, Dragon Man, Tong, Tirk, Mik and Korr (the four evolved moloids). Spider-Man is also in the team, and with Tom Holland being our new Spider-Man, a Future Foundation spin-off would be very awesome in the near future. How will it work? Well with it would be able to take place after the events of Infinity War, Mr Fantastic and (most probably) The Avengers thinks that the world needs more heroes, they'll assemble the Future Foundation to make sure Earth is no longer in danger, and to prepare themselves in case of a bigger threat.

It could make for an even better Civil War

So Y'know how Captain America Civil War starts because of the team of superpowered individuals called New Warriors tried to stop a group of villains until the supervillain Nitro blows up a whole neighborhood? Well that could happen in a different way, instead of Speedball being the cause of it all (since he's like the leader of the team), the mutants could replace that event with something even better (worst) that would drive the government to form a registration act. I mean since the ones who caused it were superpowered people, so why not mutants? More awesome things could happen including this

So get this, Stark's team is on the hunt for Captain America's team right? So when they found out about Black Panther, they send out Wolverine to pursue Black Panther which would lead to a fight between the two.

Did you like my opinion on what could happen if Marvel owned back their rights to F4 and X-Men?
