Interesting story about Marvel maybe stealing X-Men cartoon theme.

Via Geektyrant, TMZ, and the Daily Mail comes today’s potential awkwardness:

You know Marvel’s “X-Men” as defenders of justice, but a TV show — in Hungary of all places — claims Wolverine and co. are guilty of stealing the theme song to their hit cartoon.

A guy named Zoltan Krisko is suing every media giant you can imagine — Marvel, Disney, FOX, Apple, Amazon and more — claiming the TV execs behind the animated series from the ’90s jacked the intro music from an even older show … called “Linda.”

Original X-Men animation studio wants to start it all up again. …So say we* all.

Alas, this story about the folks behind the original X-Men animated show planning to pitch a revival to Disney isn’t nearly as awesome as I thought it was when I clicked ‘Add New’ in this site’s dashboard. Don’t get me wrong: the idea of a revived X-Men animated show, same format (but updated, of course), same story-lines? Awesome. So is the news that the studio’s gonna make that pitch. But them actually doing it would be the super-extra-awesome thing that I was going to write about.

Looks like Disney will release The New Mutants in theaters after all.

At least, according to GeekTyrant. For those who don’t remember, The New Mutants is a horror X-Men flick that had been in development Hell (or maybe Limbo) over at Fox for a while. Maybe it was supposed to get rewrites, maybe it wasn’t, perhaps it was going direct to video — but GeekTyrant says that it’s getting an August 2nd release, so I guess it all got resolved.

Dunno if the movie will suck or not, of course.

Ya, sure, you betcha: Dark Phoenix was always gonna be the last Fox X-Men flick.

I don’t care. Burn it, Jean Grey.

When Disney was going to take over Fox we all knew that meant the X-Men franchise that Fox has been producing over the years was going to end. Well, according to X-Men: Dark Phoenix producer Hutch Parker, that’s not the reason why Dark Phoenix is going to be the last X-Men film in the Fox franchise.

According to Parker, Dark Phoenix was always meant to be the film to close out the franchise. While talking to CB at WonderCon, he explained that the development of the project led them to a “natural culmination.”

I would feel better about Dark Phoenix…

…if I thought it would wipe the board. This Dark Phoenix trailer is mega-spoilery, so watch out if you care about that sort of thing.

The ‘Dark Phoenix’ trailer.

It looks good…

…but I have lost the thread of this iteration of the X-Men.  I’m not sure which movies I should see first to make sense of Dark Phoenix.  And I don’t even know how much to invest in this series now, given that it will eventually cross the event horizon that is Disney-Marvel.  I mean, most of this is going to go away when they decide to bring in the X-Men to the MCU in 2021 or so, right?

Would this be worth letting Thanos win?

Well, obviously not.

But the basic point is correct: Marvel has an obvious way to rejuvenate the MCU, doesn’t it?

PS: There is a rumor of a possibility of a hint that Silver Surfer might have a walk-on role of some kind in Infinity War.  Not to get your hopes up, or anything.  And if that sounds like something would have leaked, well: you’d say the same of Spider-Man showing up in Civil War.

It’s almost worth finding this comic, so that I can bask in the full light of its insanity.

Almost.

Bad news on that X-Men sequel scheduled for 2018: it’s still happening.

But they’re going to do Deadpool 2 the same year, so it’s OK after all.

Deadpool 2, X-Men: The New Mutants and X-Men: Dark Phoenix all ready to hit screens next year… The first to arrive in cinemas will be The New Mutants on April 13, 2018, followed a couple of months later by Deadpool 2 on June 1, 2018… Last but not least, Dark Phoenix will be warming up cinemas from November 2, 2018, which gives production plenty of time to find a director.
