Here's an interesting thought...

From what I understand, Fox has the rights to several Marvel properties at present (X-Men, Fantastic 4 etc), but forfeit those rights if they do not use them.

Is this correct?

If so, with Marvel's current streak of above average, commercially successful super-flicks, Fox find themselves in the situation of "We can't let Marvel have their toys back!" and so are re-booting all of the franchises to cash in on Marvel's success and retain the rights to the big hitters like Spider-man.

If this is correct, how sad would it be if Fox dumped the project and the rights reverted to Marvel? Unless, of course, some lawyer somewhere has screwed up and has sold Deadpool to Fox tied to the X-franchise? Then it would sink and never be heard from again...

While you're correct that they forfeit those rights if they don't produce any movies, but its in like a 4 year span. I dont think they own Spider-man though. From what I've heard, since the Deadpool movie is technically a spin-off of Wolverine, Fox has the rights. So the waiting could go on forever if Fox keeps spitting out mediocre flicks.

Spider-Man is owned by Sony. and Yes. that's true. they don't have to make a deadpool film to keep his rights... just an x-men film. it's not like they lost nightcrawler's rights since 2003 either....

Here is a tweet from Joe Carnahan that Rhett Reese vouched for a few moments ago on twitter...

Joe Carnahan‏@carnojoe

" Some anonymous someone just snuck me a peek of Tim Miller's 'DEADPOOL' sales reel that Just Simply Fucking CRUSHES. THAT is Wade Wilson."

He also replied to a fan saying it was everything a Deadpool fan would want.

That's what they ALL say. Of course they are going to say that. Every movie ever made based on something else such as comics, books, games etc. before they get released they say it everything that a X fan would want. More often that not, it isn't. Personally, I'd like to see they turn 5 Ronin into a movie (since it's non canon and nobody would care if they fuck it up) ala Bunraku style.
