Superhero Hype wrote:Matthew Vaughn in Talks to Direct Flash Gordon!

The Hollywood Reporter brings word today that director Matthew Vaughn is in talks to direct a new version of Flash Gordon for 20th Century Fox! J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, who penned a draft of the upcoming Star Trek 3, have written the script. John Davis (Predator, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) and George Nolfi (Ocean’s Twelve, The Adjustment Bureau) are set to produce the film.

This would mark Vaughn’s fourth comic-based film in a row, a pattern that began with 2010’s Kick-Ass and went to X-Men: First Class and this year’s hit Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Created by Alex Raymond in 1934, Flash Gordon began life as a serialized comic strip, following the intergalactic adventures of the titular hero, his fellow adventurer and love interest, Dale Arden, and brilliant scientist Dr. Hans Zarkov. Together, the trio explore fantastic interplanetary locales like Mongo, home of the devilish Ming the Merciless.

Tremendously popular in the late 1930s as a trio of big screen serials, Flash Gordon has since been adapted for both the big and small screen in a variety of different forms. Director Mike Hodges’ feature film (which boasted a soundtrack by Queen) failed to impress at the box office in 1980, but the movie has since emerged as a genuine cult classic. That film’s star, Sam J. Jones, played homage to the character in Seth MacFarlane’s 2012 comedy Ted and will reprise his role in the upcoming Ted 2.

we will be getting 3 X-Men universe movies in 2018!

Deadpool came out in Feb last year but Deadpool 2 will be release in the middle of next year.

2 X-Men films will be released, one early in the year before Deadpool 2 and one in November I believe.

X-Men: New Mutants and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

it's been talked about for a month or so but now it's finally official.

FOX has been bought out by Disney, they have the rights to the Avengers movies and had required Spiderman from Sony. so that means now that the X-Men and Fantastic Four will be part of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). so they will now be able to fight side by side with the Avengers team! this wasn't possible before so now with the merger it will eventually happen. now the actors that play The Avengers contracts will expire with the next 2 Avengers movies being their last. Hugh Jackman has stated over and over and even with the merger rumours recently he still is passing up the chance to play Wolverine one last time. even if it was a brief cameo in Avengers 4. chances are since other contracts are expiring, they will probably just reboot X-Men and Fantastic Four as well as The Avengers with an all new cast. Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will be coming in 2020 with the same cast but after that who knows what will happen. also Deadpool will also now be owned by Disney too, so after Deadpool 2 comes out... it's up in the air what they will do with it. Deadpool is a R rated character, they don't really make R rated movies at Disney do they?

it's big news anyway, looking forward to see what they'll do now!
