RUMOR: X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX Will Be Fox's Final Marvel Movie; X-MEN And FANTASTIC FOUR To Debut In Phase 4

A new report has surfaced pointing to what Kevin Feige has planned for the Fox-owned characters following the release of X-Men: Dark Phoenix and while it's bad news for Fox employees, it's good for fans.

Some unexpected details about the future of the X-Men and Fantastic Four in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have surfaced today courtesy of Brent Andrew, a writer at Comic Genre who happened to find himself at a college speaking engagement with a number of high-level Fox production crew members. 

It seems they were willing to say things they otherwise wouldn't have too as it was mentioned that the plan is for X-Men: Dark Phoenix to be the final Marvel movie from Fox and that the people who work on them will have to find jobs elsewhere once production is over because all future projects are being moved to Disney. Simply put, once the deal is done, the heroes will officially be joining the MCU.

It's said that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is "hoovering up" Fox's Marvel characters and is looking to introduce Deadpool, the Fantastic Four, and X-Men in Phase 4. That's great news for fans like us but not so much for those working at the studio as they're uncertain about what will happen as Fox bosses struggle to decide whether or not to start developing movies which likely won't be made. 

Going back to X-Men: Dark Phoenix, it's said that the production team are having to digitally recreate sets which were scrapped once filming was complete, a sign perhaps that those reshoots are indeed pretty extensive. So, some very interesting new intel here which we'll let you share your thoughts on in the comments section below. Many thanks to Bleeding Cool for the heads up on these details.
