Fox is getting into the cinematic universe game with X-Men and Fantastic Four. THR reports that the studio has signed a three-year deal with Simon Kinsberg through his Genre Films production shingle to develop "Marvel-style" movie universes for those franchises. Kinsberg is the writer and producer for both X-Men: Days of Future Past and the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.
Kinsberg told THR, "I have a lot of ideas on how to built those brands and do what everybody is thinking of these days: Be like Marvel. I want to be able to build stories over multiple movies."
Fox owns the rights to both of those franchises from before the days when Marvel was producing their own films.
