You would have thought 20 Century Fox would have been in a great position to capitalize on the trend with the X-Men franchise, but they fumbled the ball a bit.
The producers of the next "X-Men" movie are banking on the familiarity Simon Kinberg has with the "X-Men" franchise.
A new X-Men movie poses an interesting challenge for the studio: Actors Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Nicholas Hoult wrapped up their three-pic deals with last year's entry, so new deals will be necessary if anyone is plotting a return.
Jamie Chung to Play Blink in Fox's Marvel Pilot From Bryan Singer
Chung appeared as Mulan on ABC's Once Upon a Time and is set to portray a recurring role on the upcoming season of Casual in Hulu. This would allow alternate versions of popular X-Men characters-maybe played by other actors-who aren't too big to do a TV show.
To be blunt, while the reboot does have a talented cast, I think audiences don't want to keep seeing Fantastic Four movies in the vein of a gritty, realistic take of teenagers who get superpowers.
Both Fox and Kinberg have supposedly denied the claims, but rumors of the producer stepping into the director's chair for the next mutant-powered movie are continuing to build. It has changed directors several times, suffered script rewrites and was at one point pulled off Fox's release schedule completely. With New Mutants on the way - and the cast of young mutants featured in Logan - there's a definite trend of introducing a new generation of mutants for young fans to grow up with.
Kinberg tells ComicBook.com, "It's in active development". Obviously, the movie wasn't what we wanted it to be and it wasn't received the way we wanted it to be. The process has been that Channing is as determined about getting the character right as Ryan Reynolds was about Deadpool and Hugh (Jackman) was about this Logan movie.

The troubled "X-Men" spin-off, set to star Tatum in the role first played by Taylor Kitsch in 2009's 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine, ' had originally been scheduled to hit cinemas last October, only eight months after surprise smash hit 'Deadpool, ' and five months after the surprisingly underwhelming 'X-Men: Apocalypse'.
