Cancelled Movies. Wiki

Note: Do NOT state that Disney bought out 20th Century Fox! This was before that happened.

Around 2011, 20th Century Fox hired writers Ashley Edward Miller and Zach Stentz, who wrote the script for X-Men First Class, to write the script for their upcoming crossover movie starring characters from four of the Marvel franchises they owned at the time. Those being the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Deadpool, and Daredevil. The film was going to be directed by Paul Greengrass.

Plot[]

After fighting a villain named Molecule Man, Johnny Storm/The Human Torch accidentally blows a hole into Manhattan after going supernova, causing the creation of the superhero registration act. Later in the film, the heroes would battle each other. In one fight, Reed Richards uses his arms to cut Logan's arms off. Eventually, the heroes make peace. A post credits scene would involve the Skrulls invading Earth. Other than that nothing was confirmed about the plot.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

Greengrass couldn't make a deal with the studio so Fox turned down the film.

Results[]

  • The film was cancelled.
  • Fox went on to have the writers work on First Class and Days of Future Past instead.
  • Fantastic Four received a reboot that was criticized with a bomb at the box office and negative reviews.
  • The Marvel Cinematic Universe did (and still are doing it till The Multiverse Saga will come to an end) the whole multiverse thing with WandaVision having Evan Peters (NOT AS QUICKSILVER but as a guy named Ralph Bo(h)ner), Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness has Professor X appeared with Patrick Stewart reprising the role, Famous Fan casting John Krasinski as Reed Richards/Mr Fantastic, and finally Kelsey Grammer reprising the role of Beast in The Marvels. These might be linked to Deadpool 3 which will have ALL of the Deadpool characters Elytra, and might give us the Fantastic Four (2005-2007) and Daredevil (Ben Affleck) back.
