    • It would be cool if Fantastic Four can get a deal with Marvel like what Sony did with Spider-Man. I want to see X-Men crossover too, but keep the creative reigns at Fox.

  1. i say Stan Lee Brian Singer and,Simon Kinberg rocks with , Michael Bay and Steven spielberg universe movies Rocks and Rules 4 ever and ever for really exciting movies for theyre special effects cgi so incredible and exciting theyre them are very exciting

    • I read somewhere his 3-year contract with Fox is coming to an end soon. Of course that doesn’t mean he’ll definitely disappear. We’ll have to wait and see. I like Kinberg, but wouldn’t mind another writer taking a crack at the mainline X-Men films.
