Now that Marvel once again has use of one of their most popular characters in Spider-Man, they may be looking to regain some of their other estranged properties. The man behind Marvel, Stan Lee, recently spoke at Wizard World Nashville (via CBR), and he thinks the studio is working on regaining the rights to some of their other characters.
“Sooner or later, they’re going to get the rights back to all our characters. They’re working on it, and they’re still making X-Men movies and stuff. Don’t worry about it. You’ll get more Marvel superheroes than you’ll have time to look at in the next few years.”
Some may argue that we already have more Marvel characters than we can handle, but I would not be one of them. While I am more of a fan of DC, theres no question which studio has shown better execution with their properties. I think it is in Marvel’s best interest to try and reacquire some of their characters, as they seem to simply handle the characters in a way that is more pleasing to fans. With the deal between Marvel and Sony being a mutually beneficial success, there is hope that Fox has taken notice and will be more inclined to make a similar deal with Marvel (at least for Fantastic Four). While Stan Lee sounds optimistic, the mind behind Marvel’s shared universe, Kevin Feige, believes these sort of deals are possible, but unlikely.
For the most part, Fox has done well with the X-Men, not so much with Fantastic Four, this would be a good place for Marvel to start. After the last attempt at Fantastic Four, fans will be incredibly apprehensive to give any new efforts a chance, unless the film is produced under the watchful eye of Kevin Feige and Marvel.
