Today, JoBlo post a set interview with writer/producer Simon Kinberg and his involvement on future X-Men films. The producer goes onto confirm that in one way or another Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool and Channing Tatum’s Gambit are indeed in the bigger X-Men universe. However, he also says the recent Fantastic Four film is also in the same universe. This comes as a surprise given the reboot bombed hard and the sequel was put on the back burner:
“Well this movie take space chronologically before those other films, so it’s more like those films have to acknowledge this than we acknowledge Gambit, Deadpool, or Fantastic Four or anything else that exists within the sort of Fox/Marvel universe. But I work on all of those films in one capacity or another, either as a producer on all of them and as a writer on Fantastic Four and this movie, so I’m certainly aware of all the different stories we’re telling at the same time, and they all are part of a larger fabric now, and so the world of Deadpool, the world of Gambit, exists in a post-Days of Future Past post-Apocalypse world where all of these stories are the same as our shared history. The same way that each of us of different ages knows about Nixon and knows about Reagan and knows about 9/11, our fictitious events like the stadium dropping on the White House in 1973 is part of the world in which Gambit, Deadpool, Wolverine on forward exists.”
Rceently, Michael B. Jordon who played the hot head Johnny Storm revealed he would actually like to return to the character ina future installment. But the long rumored X-Men/Fanatstic Four crossover film just sounds better doesn’t it?
