For a while, Marvel fans have been wondering what to expect from Bryan Singer in the X-Men franchise. The recent X-Men: Apocalypse did a good job correcting the new series’ storyline. While fans are eager to hear news on a sequel, it looks like the studio has different plans for us.
Marvel has joined Fox to develop a new television series for X-Men. The series is still untitled, but Matt Nix has been confirmed as the scriptwriter for the series. The news comes from Variety. Nix is also the executive producer of the show with Bryan Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory.
It looks like 20th Century Fox Television is investing a hefty amount into the series, as it has been confirmed that the studio will be in charge of physical production. While we may believe the storyline may be something similar to the comics, it looks like Marvel is going in a different direction.
The X-Men TV series plot sets off with two “on two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.”
It could be possible that the studio is changing the mutant characters as well in the TV series.
Marvel’s head of television shared his comments on the new series. Jeph Loeb said, “Marvel Television is thrilled to be co-producing with 20th Century Fox Television on our first project. Matt’s a huge fan of ‘X-Men’ and his take on ‘X-Men,’ with its rich characters and high-stakes adventure, is exactly the show we want on Fox. It’s a great team of creative producers who will be making something entirely unique.”
While the story is nothing unique, it’s possible that Marvel and Fox plans to combine elements from the comics to give viewers a different perspective of the series.
