Fox May Reboot the X-Men Movie Franchise


X-Men: Apocalypse

The X-Men movie franchise may be headed to a reboot if a new report is correct.

The Hollywood Reporter has a new article up detailing the problems Fox has with their Mutant movies, such as Deadpool 2 losing its director and Gambit failing to start so many times, there’s a mention of a franchise reboot:

“Elsewhere, the reset button has been pressed. Sources say the flagship series will be reconfigured, with Simon Kinberg, overseer of the franchise as producer and writer, working on a new script. Singer, who directed four X-Men movies, will not be returning, according to insiders, but the script is being written with Lawrence, Fassbender and McAvoy optimistically in mind.”

Here’s an idea, how about they let Marvel put the Mutants in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Sony did that with Spider-Man. Hopefully Fox can realize that Marvel is the best place for the characters to reside.
