Fox eying X-Men Reboot as Bryan Singer departs. Fox is in a weird situation right now. In addition to Singer leaving, Hugh Jackman is giving his last hurrah as Wolverine, the latter films are declining in box office performance, and even Deadpool (their most successful movie) is currently on the rocks with the development for the 2 sequels (they've already announced Deadpool 3). It's looking like the same situation Sony had with Spiderman 3, subsequently forcing them to rush that awful Amazing Spiderman reboot. It's weird because the mass success of Deadpool is what makes the franchise still commercially viable for Fox to keep, thus keeping Marvel/Disney at bay from getting their toys back. They've also got the rights to Fantastic Four, that's also in limbo right now. I can't help but be curious to whatever action Fox will make, because as a franchise, 16 years on and it hasn't budged an inch. Well, I guess you can count it rebooting itself with First Class/Days Of Future Past, in which case, it's a bloody mess.
