Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is taking over the X-Men franchise after Disney’s acquisition of most of 20th Century Fox’s entertainment assets. Feige will oversee the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Deadpool, The Simpsons, Ice Age, and Planet of the Apes. Does this mean that we’ll see an Avengers/Deadpool crossover? Or maybe Avengers/X-Men?
Disney CEO Bob Iger told The Hollywood Reporter that it makes sense for Feige to oversee everything as Marvel absorbs Fox’s X-Men franchise. “I want to be careful here because of what’s been communicated to the Fox folks, but I think they know,” said Iger. “It only makes sense for Marvel to be supervised by one entity. There shouldn’t be two Marvels.”
