X-Men or X-Factor: Is A New Marvel Series Coming to Fox?
Marvel just might be taking a page out of the handbook of D.C. Comics and is looking to produce a TV series coincides with their movie endeavors. Actually, Fox TV is pondering bringing a X-Men inspired project to the small screen. Marvel Comics has not yet provided any approvals or go-aheads. No green light has been given.
An X-Men TV series might have to take place in a new universe since the stars from the film are not going to be making any appearances. Perhaps Marvel/Fox will follow the D.C. approach.
Fans like Brian Torchin of digitaljournal.com wonder: What approach is that?
The Flash and Arrow are two inter-twined TV series based on D.C. Comic books, but they will have nothing to do with the expanded D.C. Comics Cinema Universe that begins with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. In the 2017 release of The Justice League, a completely new Flash who is totally removed from the TV Flash.
Then again, the series could follow the SHIELD strategy and be part of, yet removed, from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Instead of the X-Men, we could see a series with X-Factor. The X-Factor book was a spinoff of the X-Men. Many years ago, the popularity of X-Men comics spawned a host of mutant titles and mutant teams.
Could this be the project Marvel and Fox choose to move forward with?
Time will tell, but something featuring heroes is going to show up on Fox. The subgenre of superhero fantasy tales is too hot for such a television series not to be made.
