Ever since Fox announced the Fantastic Four reboot we’ve been hearing about their plans to created a shared universe between that and X-Men. Now that Fantastic Four has turned out to be one of the worst superhero movies ever made, it sounds like Fox is backing off from that idea.
In an email to the NY Daily News, Simon Kinberg says the two exist in different universes:
“The Fantastic 4 live in a world without mutants. And the X-Men live in a world without the Fantastic 4.”
I guess once Fox realized how massive a dud Fantastic Four will be they didn’t want to taint their X-Men franchise with box office poison. Soon Marvel will have their First Family home and things will be right in the comic world.
