Fox Planning "X-Men" Spin-Off and "Daredevil 2"

Fox Planning "X-Men" Spin-Off and "Daredevil 2"Submit Comment
In a Variety article about how 20th Century Fox is plagued with poor-performing films, there is a part that talks about the studio's decision to focus more on comic book properties. Here is a clip:

"Though Fox has no plans for a major overhaul, the studio has scheduled a strategy meeting to assess the status of its superheroes, a group sorely missed this summer. On the agenda, Fox will mull the possibility of more "X-Men" spinoffs, including a young-X-Men project as well as "Deadpool," based on a character played by Ryan Reynolds in "Wolverine." The studio is even considering reviving the "Daredevil" property."

Since Fox couldn't sign Russell Crowe to star alongside Nicole Kidman in "Australia," Hugh Jackman was brought on, which delayed "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." The original plan was to release "Wolverine" this summer, but since Jackman was busy, the movie was pushed till next May. As a result, movies like "The X-Files: I Want to Believe" were placed in the vacant summer slot, leaving the studio with yet another underperforming summer release. Apparently, Fox has had enough and it's time to cash in on the comic book craze.

A Ryan Reynolds Deadpool movie could be cool, but Amuhrica doesn't really know the character.

Wolverine is on a tight rope since FOX has shown that their suits get involved in artistic matters unwantingly. The leaked trailer seemed cool but at the same time really lame in some aspects. Example: I like Ryan Reynolds but his small second in the trailer looked camoy and out of place. I hope the Director can somehow salvage this movie but it looks doubtful. Plus this will probably be the lowest form of PG-13 possible and not what it should be, a rated R Drama. Blood, Harsh Language & Nudity should not be things that beat Wolverine, but they most likely will. This movie won't be anywhere as risky as Dark Knight seemed to be for the suits or bordering Rated R status as Dark Knight did and at best Wolverine should.
