Comic Book Writers Take Sides in Marvel Fox War

Marvel at war with Fox

Chris Claremont on the record, “No New X-Men”

(PCM) Did you know Marvel is at war with Fox? Sure it is. You just haven’t been paying attention or don’t read comics. When it comes to superheroes on film, Marvel screwed up. That’s putting it in politically correct words.

Years ago, before Superheroes were a big money maker on the big screen Marvel sold its soul, but they didn’t realize it.

In the mid 1990’s Marvel made both the smartest and dumbest move it could have in taking its properties to the big screen. They carved up the Marvel superhero universe and sold the ‘rights’ to specific franchises to various studios. For instance Spider-Man’s rights for his cinematic universe were sold to Sony.  Fox was sold X-men (mutants), Daredevil, and The Fantastic Four among others.

Movie Review: The Wolverine

(PCM) Hugh Jackman is back for the sixth time as our fan favorite anti-hero  in The Wolverine.
